In the market for a GT!

Well I just sold my 01 sixxer and looking for a GT now, price range is up to about $4500, I'm in souther California and have found a lot of nice looking ones. But I'd like to know if there are curtain things that I should look out for. I had the sixxers down, but not so much the GTs
Thanks!

You should look out for EVERYTHING. The "newest" New Edge that you will find is going on ten years old. The fleet is ageing...

Check everything you can see. Rear end and under the hood.

Once bought you should freshen it up with new plugs and fluids change.

Cracked intake manifold , mainly near the thermostat , and back where heater hose goes..

Throw out bearing noise

Rear end movement or noise ( Control arm bushings going out )

Front timing cover leaks

And just the usuall.. Cracked dash, if seat works .. Especially if AC works ..
