Looks like a good price... good year as far as having any Head Gasket issues... don't know if I would have done a transmission flush... I'm a drain and fill man. Pull the codes on her per the sticky at the top of this board and post back what you find. Tell me where's she at and I'll snatch her up... just kidin'

If you can, take the VIN to a GM dealer in the middle of the afternoon (slow service time) and have a service writer pull the GM VIS for the car. All warranty, recall, and some GM service work. CARFAX is a voluntary reporting service, so it is essentially useless except for title transfers and emissions tests. ("Hey, Bubba, I smashed up the SLS and BillyJoe banged out the fender for me. Tell CARFAX, will ya ???")

If your mechanic does a reasonable inspection and gives the car a good bill of health, "you're going to like the way you ride - I guarantee it" - to paraphrase a big clothier.
