Does this seem weird at all??

http://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-s...gIndex=2&Log=0

This is a used 2013 LT that has everything i want besides the RS package... it only has 40 miles on it, yet it has a bunch of upgrades to it...it has the SS mail slot which means the previous owner did a front fascia swap which then leads me to assume he also added the gfx and the heritage grill on his own. also, it comes with leather, the 4 pack gauge cluster, and a rear spoiler. I thought that those 3 things only came with the rs package (which the car clearly does not have because it has the 18" wheels and no HID headlights).... i guess what im asking is why would someone do all this to the car, only to trade it in after 40 miles?? does this throw up any red flags?

Yes lots of them IMO. Unless offcourse they have mileage listed incorrectly.In addition the price is to high for LT.

These are not part of the RS package, they are the difference between the 1LT and 2LT.

The car you described is a 2LT, non RS

If you're willing to spend 30k+ (and this is just my opinion) I would personally look for a 2010-2012 SS. Thats just me though lol

You want a V6 car with an SS front fascia on it? They are selling is as used because they are trying to get more than MSRP for it and they have installed the improper front end.

In short terms, you could order a 2LT that has everything you want for cheaper than they are asking for the car.

If you could pick it up for $28000 or something, things might be different.

Ok 1st owner bought it, promptly wrecked it, no police report filed, bought the wrong parts and had it fixed without involving the insurance company then turned around and traded it for another car.
Still priced as new, pass on it.

Too much $ for an LT. Can get a new SS for this and a 1LE package for not much more if you read some of the postings on this forum stating such.

Call your insurance agent for quote on a used SS. My new SS vert was less than the RS V6.

if you enjoy speed really give the SS thought.. my insurance went up $23.49 from a 2LT to a 2SS/1LE.. everything the same except the addition of nav... less than $5 a month

link to my snapshot of insurance.. sorry can't figure how to embed with iPhone

This. My insurance was *GASP* 12 bucks a month more for the 2SS/RS than I was paying on my '02 Monte Carlo SS... I was blown away by how inexpensive it was... unless you have tickets... or warrants... or something like that.

Also just to chime in on insurance mine went up $9 a month from my 12 LS to my 10 SS. Depending on your age /record it may not be as bad as you think!

Also if you want the RS package as you stated above, do not (I repeat) DO NOT settle for a car without it! You will kick yourself and regret it every time you see a car with the RS on it...

yep. all the time i hear how

-"coupes are more expensive"
-"v8 is more expensive"
-"it's a sporty car...more expensive"

camaro came out $200 cheaper than a Honda accord..

from what I've heard i thought an accord would be the safest go for insurance.. plain regular sedan..

insurance guy told me it was due to cheaper parts and the camaro being around for 5 years.. maybe it's great safety rating played a factor, idk..


yes it does throw up red flags.. i would try to get more info..
when i traded in my car, i checked the listing to see how my old buddy was doing.. they had pictures of an automatic SIM LS camaro instead of stick AGM 2LT..

and don't forget to check out used SS's


.:edit:.
oh nvm.. angry said it was in an accident.. don't check it out.. instead look for something else *cough**cough*SS*cough*

I was just giving my theory on why it had the SS bumper and being sold as a used car with only 40 miles on it....
