New person here - thinking about joining you guys and buying an STS.
I've looked at a few, the one I'm thinking of is a 2007 V6 AWD, 1SB, FE1, with the navigation/15-speaker bose system. 85K kms, though it was originally a US car (seems it was owned by GM for the first little while, then it was imported north).
I saw the list of warranty repairs on the dealer's computer screen, nothing seemed too unusual. Rear axle seal early on, the driver's side door lock recently, etc. There was a GM preowned warranty that ended three weeks ago - I assume that's why the previous owner traded 'er in.
Any general advice? Things I should look for?
Two other things:
1) the tires seem to be nearly worn. Michelin LX4 or something like that. I've been doing some research, it seems like it's hard to get a good solid boring long-lasting all-season tire in the right size for these cars? Anything you guys would recommend?
2) just how bad is the fuel consumption on these?
