That is a good price for the mileage and condition from what I can see.

Agreed...looks good for that price..but definitely do your homework, since some tend to have many more issues than others.

Hold out for a V8. Much more power.

This costs a little more, but mileage about the same:


Another nice one:


It's harder to find V8's with low mileage for that cheap. You might be better off with an I6.

My ideal setup would have been a Laredo trim 03 or 04 with selec-trac, upcountry suspension group, and an H.O. V8. Keep the power and the better suspension, and ditch all the bells and whistles that just cause more repair problems. Though I don't think you could get the HO with a base trim Laredo...
