I found an 06 MGM for sale about 90 mi from home. Has clean car fax, no accidents. Pic's of the car don't reveal any concerns. It's silver, with 58K miles and generally appears to be in good condition. Naturally, a test ride and close inspection will be done.
#1 Any common problems I should look for, #2 car prices are crazy right now, this one advertised by dealer for $ 7600. Hoping theres room to talk this down if the car is okay.
Your thoughts?
Thanks in advance

Can you link to the ad?
Price could be in line depending on trim level, condition, etc.

Car prices are crazy right now, but depends on the options and trim and how clean it is. I'm assuming it's an LS and not the base cloth GS model. If so, look for heated seats, subwoofer stereo and other options. I had an 08 with every option (including moonroof) and daily drove it for 4 years. The only complaint I had on the 08 was the soundproofing - the thing was really noisy on the highway.

That price sounds fully in line with good MGM prices in my area right now.. i’ve seen higher mileage cars go for more. Go take a quick look at it and see what kind of options it’s got and if it’s loaded jump on it
