I don't know? Can you repeat the question, Your not the boss of me now!
ahha sorry, i got distracted...
The 3.1L is a solid motor(aside from the intake manifold gaskets) but I wouldn't expect any crazy performance out of it. Atleast you could beat up on the local "fart can" Honda Civics.
Check out the Kelly Blue Book value......if it's close to, or above $4K (which I wouldn't think so.......), there's no haggling room..........however if there's a noticeable gap, the KBB amt. would give you a good idea of how much you could try and knock off their price.....are they really worth 4k?
If it's going for $4K and the KBB says $3K......I'd start at maybe 2.6 or 2.7 and move up from there in $100 increments......if the salesman doesn't budge much.....I'd make those increments two or even three hundred.....until he grudgingly agreesWell KBB says $3k. Do you think I can get it for as low as 2.5? The dealer is gloating about how it's 1 owner, so I have a feeling he's really going to try to get top dollar.
The "Generation II" 3.1L V6 was used in a variety of GM models from 1988-06 including the Pontiac 6000 & Buick CenturyYes it's a one owner and low-mileage... but it's still a 3.1L 1990 Firebird! I love it... I'd buy one in a second... but it's not a collectors car by any means. Hope you get it though... I know nothing about that engine, but I always loved our '86 Trans Am.
Who cares what the dealer guys says or tries, find out what he paid for it. Guarantee if you paid 1500 he would still show profit! He may brag about how it iw one owner low miles to make it sound great, but when it was traded in, I am certain they tried to down play it and paid minimal. Horrible game.
Don't be so anxious when buying...I've made that mistake in the past...
Look for others if that's something you want...
