My wife's 2004 Chevy Trailblazer LS (117k miles) was totaled by our insurance company. Almost $6,600 in damage. Looking at two vehicles to replace the Trailblazer. Both will require taking out a small personal loan, which I didn't really want to do at this time, however...we don't have much of a choice (based on the mileage and condition of some of the vehicles we have already looked at). First vehicle: 2003 GMC ENVOY SLT 4WD, 52K miles, one owner, garage kept, fully loaded, leather, heated seats, Bose system, moonroof, chrome wheels, tow pkg, 4.2L 6 cyl. Very clean. NADA book value is showing $11,7000. Seller is asking $10,995. Seller (who is actually a car salesman...this is his personal vehicle) told me he would take $10,000. Then he said that someone else looked at it and offered him $10,500...but they couldn't close the deal for another two weeks. Now apparently my new price is now $10,500. I told him to split the difference with me at $10,250. Miles are good on this, but I have some people saying that it is too old for $10,000 to $10,500, even though that is around the book pricing. No warranty. Second vehicle: 2007 Chevy Impala LT, 77,500 miles, one owner, 3.9L V6, rear spoiler, dual exhaust (This is basically the same as every other newer Impala that I have seen (LS), except this one has the 3.9 V6 in place of the 3.5, and it has the rear spoiler, dual exhaust, and alloy wheels. Has a ding or two here and there. $9,950. 3 month/3,000 mile warranty. We are already used to the fuel mileage of the SUV. The Impala might be a slight improvement, but not really factoring that in to our decision. What we are basically looking for is which vehicle will last us the longest for the year and mileage of the specific vehicle. Thoughts/opinions on each?? Thanks!
