    G8 Values Still Holding High

    Every once in a while I look at used G8's on cars.com and Autotrader. Usually the same criteria, <60k miles, GT only.

    Still holding onto $20k for the last 2-3 years.

    If that was the big problem then fine, but mine was that I couldn't find one. People are not selling them at all.

    Dealer Prices have dropped about 2k since I bought mine 2 years ago. Private party value seems to have dropped a lot more. 18k or so for under 50k mile GT

    High prices point that the G8 was a great car introduced into horrific economic times and that the G8 (and the Pontiac brand) had/have more going for them than most "experts" think.

    Yes, part of the price strength is based upon Pontiac no longer being around, OTOH it proves that there still is a very strong Pontiac "buyer base" out there that just might buy a "new" G8.

    ...or that there were very few built/sold.

    More straw grasping. How can you possibly draw this conclusion from what is maybe a dozen used G8's for sale around the country?

    Even when it was new it seems the G8 had more interest and support from those that wanted one used.

    Then thr Chevy SS should be flying off the lots. It'll be interesting to see what sales actually turn out to be like.

    You sure about that?

    The Volkswagen CC was introduced close to the same time as the G8, had near identical price range, and sold about 700 more than the G8 in all of 2009 (23,872 vs. 23,157). Do a search of the entire U.S. for both on Autotrader and guess which one has more than twice the number available than the other?

    G8 - 704 for sale
    CC - 294 for sale

    And a quick browse through the results indicates that the G8 has decently higher resale value.

    Apples and Oranges.

    The market segment for the CC is completly different. The G8 was the very definition of a "niche" car. The appeal of the CC is far more broad.

    But the biggest difference is that the CC is still in production. There are 10's of thousands more CC's on the road and more coming from the factory every day. Unlike the G8, sales of the CC continued to grow after its introduction and without the huge incentives/discounts GM had to pile on the Pontiac to move them after inventories piled up

    Actually, the number of G8's on the used market compared to the CC you've posted, bearing in mind the sales-when-new, would indicate that owners of G8's are far less happy with their cars than those who own CC's. Over twice the number of people that own one of the 24K G8's want out.

    I think he may be trying to say a NEW G8 GXP not the SS sedan. If the Chevy SS sedan was a Pontiac with Pontiac styling cues and all the same options (or lack thereof) at the same price point, I very well would be lining up for another Zeta product.

    I know I'm on your ever-growing ignore list, but are you saying the only reason you don't have a Chevy SS is the badge and grille?

    Also don't forget VW is alive and well. Pontiac is dead as a doornail. This plays into peoples mindsets when making car buying/selling decisions.

    I can't believe that a small thread would garner such haterism. The G8 is holding value and that cannot be disputed.

    AMEN on the G-8 v-8s commanding BIG money!

    The very few that I have seen are in the $25,000 area!
    Lots of $$ for a 2009.

    Also looked for a Buick Lucerne Super v-8 and they are in the same price range
    for a nice low mileage one.

    I guess i will be happy with my 2013 Impala for $15k !!!!!!!!!!!
