    I am considering buying a 2006 STS-V, what should I look out for?

    Hello All,

    I am thinking about getting out of my 1996 Impala SS, this STS-V looks like the ideal size and I can't deny the HP increase will be cool!

    What should I be looking for in a 'pre-loved' 2006? Other than acceptable LOW miles and lite wear??

    Mike in Yukon, OK

    Low mileage, one owner...and a warranty if you are not well versed in car maintenance/repair.

    Also try to get the service records for the car you are looking at. I had a buddy at GM get me mine, and found that all of the major repairs/recalls have already been done under warranty. Made me feel alot better about my purchase, and the car has been flawless thus far.

    deer





    sorry I know this thread was dead. But I got a new to me sts-v and then after 500,000 on the road in northern wisconsin and minnesota hit a deer. Waiting is the hardest thing when you have a car in the body shop. Again sorry just couldn't help myself.

    So I was try to figure this out. Where you suggestion I should sell mine after the accident. Purchase yours? Any way they did such a nice job the repaired area now looks a little better than the rest of the car and I'm wondering if I should have had them paint the whole thing. The rest of the car has little scratches here and there etc.
