Mods: I tried my best to follow all instructions and post with a phone. Forgive me if something is wrong. I tried for 30 minutes multiple ways to upload pics unsuccessfully, so unless someone can walk me through it using an Android phone, the best I could do was provide them in a link. Sorry. Here it goes:



"Please include:"

-Description - '08 Red SS 135K, one-of-a-kind maintenance records
-Condition - Very good
-Price - $5,999 FIRM
-Pics - See link below, I couldn't get them to work directly on this page
-Location - Norman, OK (OKC)
-Shipping method - None. Local in-person only

I'm basically reposting this from the "What's my car worth?" section, but I've edited appropriately.

Obviously it's a 2008 Impala SS. Bone stock down to the paper air filter. 135K miles, so yes, it's a bit high (when it was daily driven, I would drive 90% highway 30 miles 1-way to work). The only option it does not have is the Bose system. No collisions, however it was stolen in 2008, so Autocheck does consider that an accident. No damage reported. Clean green title. I am including my Superchips Cortex 2950 tuner and code reader with the car, which is still worth the same as I paid for it, about $250-300 (meaning if for some reason you didn't want it, it could be sold for that amount fairly easily). I purchased it strictly to disable AFM (you guys know why) and read any codes that may appear, not to squeeze extra performance out of it. I'll explain if someone is serious about it. Thankfully, it went from burning a full quart every 750 miles to not burning a drop between oil changes. Worth every penny, and has already paid for itself just in oil in the 60K I've had it. Always in the garage at night, never seen hail, no rust whatsoever, and has only seen light snow once. But I made sure it got a thorough wash w/underbody wash the next day when it was above freezing. Paint is near perfect except a few rock chips from the highway.

But here's the best part. I have truly one-of-a-kind maintenance records. I have everything I've EVER done to the car neatly organized into a red binder (matches the car). The car has had an exclusive diet of Top-Tier premium 91 octane E-0 fuel (which I feel no other SS could say). From day one, I felt if I should ever sell this car, whoever buys it shouldn't have to ask questions about anything. I'd be able to back up what I claim 100%. I'll try to give just the basics:
-Valvoline full synthetic oil changes every 4,000 miles with premium filters (usually WIX)
-Transmission has been *properly* serviced and is still 100% original and strong after 135K. I have zero reason to believe this transmission will quit before 200K (contrary to all of the horror stories I read). I'd truly be shocked ( and that's also why I'm content with possibly keeping it). It still shifts like brand new. It helps that the fluid has been dropped several times (made easier with a pan that has a drain plug) and the filter has been changed
-Has matching tires that have less than 20K miles on them
-Coolant has been *properly* flushed (meaning power flushed by a real radiator shop)
-NO cheap-o parts, my cars always get the best quality available
Plugs and wires, power steering, wheel bearings, fuel system cleaners (I only use Chevron Techron), car washes, you name it... it's all documented with the date & mileage

Extensive and thorough is the understatement of the century.

I've compared to every SS for sale within 200 miles on every site I can think of (haven't looked here yet, will do that after I post). I'm far and away not only the cheapest, but nicest. Best bang for the buck unquestionably. For example, the same exact car with 70K more miles on it and a salvage title is more expensive than mine at a local dealer. That's not even placing a value on maintenance history (which I'm not doing)...

All of that said, I started up around $7k, but I'm currently priced firm at $5,999. It's worth that to me, and I have no problems keeping it for less. It books higher than what I'm asking. Again, hopefully I'm not breaking any rules by posting my actual CL link, but here it is just so you can see that as well (along with my contact info, which I'm okay with posting publicly here). PICS ARE FOUND IN THIS LINK:
https://oklahomacity.craigslist.org/for/d/norman-2008-chevrolet-impala-ss/6914583060.html

If interested, please read my contact details from the link. If not, I'm still desperate for input on this car/sale, so replying with your input would be greatly appreciated :eek:k3:, even if that means cussing me out and calling me a moron. I really welcome all input and advice.

Thanks for reading!

After you select the file to upload, scroll right and hit the upload button. There's a flaw in that page that hides the upload button off the screen to the right.

HTH.

I found it the first time, it was actually visible. But every time I clicked it, it tried loading for 5+ minutes at a time (only uploading 4 images @1024x768 as the rules suggested on a fast connection here) and timed out forcing me to refresh the page and start over. Not sure what was happening, but I uploaded pics to another site just fine.

Thanks for the tip though!

Closing the thread then. I don't think that was a terrible price for an 11 year old car with 135000 miles on it. Our cars are always worth much more to ourselves because we know how good they are, but we just can't convey that buyers all the time.
