Thoughts on potential purchase

I've been searching for a new GT to replace my current v6 and I came across this. Besides the higher mileage does anyone else see anything good or bad about it? I'll be driving down to see it as soon as I get some free time. Any help is appreciated.

It seems like a good price for a California special but the mileage is a little concerning

I see nothing to worry about. 33,000 miles doesn't concern me a bit. Someone enjoyed the car. And with the miles where they are on such a late model year, it's likely all highway miles. Looks like its a nice car man.

Too many miles for that price. Find out, if you can, how the dealer got the car. Documentary Fee, Emission Testing Fees and Compliance Fees are additional to the advertised price.

Maybe they do it different in Texas, but why are they charging you for the Emission Testing Fees?

Compliance Fees?

Documentary Fee? Not likely. They can pay their own employee, shouldn't even be in the price, unless they want to rob you.

I pass that dealership everyday if you don't I will lol, offer around 25k and try to bring the price down, I bought my 2013 with 29k for 20,900 ...... I was looking for a 5.0 but nobody around had one I liked plus it was around September of 2013 and the cheapest 2013 5.0 was $27k with at least 36k miles

I would definitely lower the price a lot. I would say low 20s, I wouldn't worry too much about miles if it has been maintained well. Where I live at everything is far so all the cars around here have lots of highway miles. I drive to school 60 miles one way and 60 miles back home so in one day my car gets more than 120 miles.

Miles aren't a problem but the price is. $24k out the door or look for another one and let them know that. If they can't do it walk away. You can find 2011/2012s with less miles for low $20k range if you are patient.

I have the same rims on my current car and yes they are 19s. And do you really think I could talk them down to 24k? For a 2013 in any trim that seems low. Nothing around me is that cheap if seems

You can grab a new 2014 5.0 on some lots for 28k with under 10 miles on them. I wouldn't pay that much for one with 33k on the clock already.
