V6 purchase

Living in NJ, looking to sell '03 Chevy S10 and buy '04 V6 within next 3-6 months. These things are a real bargan slightly used, but does anyone know what they're going for new? My guess is that demand for the '05s is driving down their prices, plus that $2500 factory rebate. Also, does anyone know what the mil. rebate is? I'm actively drilling with Nat'l Guard.

Anyway, any dealer recommendations/'04 peculiarities to look for are more than welcome. Also, how's the highway driving? I'll be using it to commute 45 mins up to school next year; I was wondering how's the clutch on the 5-speed? Thanks.

Cool

Purchased my 04 in August... My base price paid was 22,010. Of course that was before sales tax and any additional coverage. That was also before the 2500 rebate.. The rebate helps cause it goes toward down payment. After sales tax(1400) and premium gap coverage (1,200) and delivery charges and other dumb charges they get you on, its was for me about 25.000. Take your 2500 rebate and down payment or trade and it can easily take it under 20K..

As for the highway, (auto trans) I drive about 30 min. to work and back each day Mon.-Fri.
and get anywhere from 240 to 270 to a tank full unless i go other places other than to work. If I just go to work i get good miles to the gallon..

Good luck!!!

I dont think even at year end deals that you will get the 04 for under 20k.., but check with FORD. It was still Aug when i got mine, but I did not like the 05. I paid 25k inlcuding extra coverage for the entire loan, tax, title and reg fees and also leather interior upgrade and mach 460. I also got nailed because the vehicle had to come from another dealer that was 625.. But shes worth it!! 14 - 18k LOL

I suggest checking AutoTrader for some lease trade-ins...

That's how I found my car...'03 Deluxe Coupe w/ 15K on it for $12,250 before tax

Sure, you're probably gonna want less miles than that, but its a good place to find the remaining 04's that are being moved out.

And Jeff...For that amount of money, I probably would've looked into a GT....that is wayyyyy too much to be paying for a v6, let alone a model that is now considered old next to the 05's....I would've told them to go **** themselves

I wanted GT but its almost double on car insurance as you know or should know. I guess everyone is entitled to their opinion , thats what this board is for... NEW is always better, especially for a trade later on.

One important thing to remember too is that interest rates will kill you going used...

I just bought an 04 with 40th anniversary package, ABS and traction control Mach 460 radio v6 etc. Sticker was 21,355.00. They had a 3000 dollar rebate. Unfortunatly thats all they did for me. I originally went to this dealer for a GT. But it was an automatic and I didn't like it. They were able to get the v6 from another dealer. They were trying to push me into the GT but sorry to say I hate auto's but I thought I could deal with it in a GT. But its just not driving in my opinion unless you have full control. But if you find the one you want on their lot they probably will do alot to help you out.
