Has anyone here purchased an 09V used at the experience track events? If so, where was it purchased and how was the warranty issue addressed if you purchased one. I am thinking about purchasing one, as I don't keep cars long anyway and these cars are going way below book. I have seen them priced in the 30s but they don't come with the factory powertrain warranty, as I understand it. However, I received information that you can purchase an extended warranty or powertrain warranty from GM. Now, what is puzzling is that GM voids its factory warranty but would offer a powertrain warranty on these cars. If anyone has experience with these cars and purchasing transactions, please chime in. Thanks in advance for any positive or negative feedback.

I don't know. But if you decide to buy one and you'd like to sell the diff cooler, I would reimburse you for your goods...

I would consider one for $35k, not much more than that since non-tracked 09's with warranty have sold for low 40's. And with the 2012s hitting the lots, pricing will drop again.

A friend of mine purchased one of these track cars and it was $42K. He did get new tires thrown in and they offered a powertrain warranty. They did indicate, however, that GM would not offer any powertrain warranty for the car, even GMPP. They directed him to purchase a third party warranty and that would run $3000.

I was told you can purchase a powertrain warranty from GM. I will ask them for this in writing before I pull the trigger. Has your friend had any problems with his car? Leaks, powertrain or brake problems...etc

No, we gave a solid looking over, and it drives perfect. The only item that was a little worse for the wear were the rims and the tires. His had 4200 miles at the time of sale and has a manual. He absolutely loves the car.

Okay, good to hear he loves his V. Was your friend able to get a third party warranty? If so, which one so I could check them out.
