Anybody Know Anything About MY '12 #1335?

Got a question for you ZL1 afficianados...cruising online, looking to bump up to a ZL1. Came across MY '12, #1335 for sale, Jimmie Johnson Chevy in Charlotte can work a transfer to JJ Chevy in San Diego. 2094 miles, GBA, manual. Originally sold in So. Carolina. Do any of you remember any "oh my God" bad news about subject ZL1?

Thanks!

Its not listed under the ZL1 registration so a camaro5 user most likely didn't own it. Hopefully the sale works out!

I have the CarFax. Has an accident, just trying to see if it was a fender bender or a head on collision.

Thank you...just getting as much info as I can. The ad had the ZL1 Certificate displayed. Might be hard to pull off without getting my hands on it first.

Accident on carfax... the price should be significantly lower than a ZL1 with a clean record. It may not bother you, but it may make it extremely difficult for you to sell the car down the road. I'm sure aware of that, but people that buy a ZL1 tend to be very particular people

Thanks everyone for bringing me back down to Earth. The price looked good, but in reality maybe a bigger headache. CarFax lists that is has an accident...not how much or what damage was. The price was actually close for $4000 below blue book. Talked to the dealership...could be a line of smoke, but they say the rear bumper was replaced, no frame damage, all factory warranties (B2B, drivetrain) still valid. Thanks...guess I gotta keep looking.

Use the same black book that the dealers use. About 4000.00 less than Kelly blue book to begin with.

Man, I don't know about that one, but if you want to get away from it and look some more, there have been a couple of low mileage ZL1's go by here(this forum) for sale and a '12 left a dealer two hours from me two weeks ago and went to auction. I don't know how to find it, you could call Cooper Chevrolet in Anniston, AL and see if they know where it went.

But I think another option could present itself, should you feel uncomfortable about this one.

Thanks, I'm gonna pass on this one. Probably go with a '13 new anyway. No telling what was done to this car. Thanks for the input!

There is one here in Chicagoland, Phillips Chevy, 2012 auto, CRM, black interior, 2300 miles. I think their asking around $57K, could be had for $55K. I drove it, looks & feels good.

Mileage is too high for that price. The 2 that went through here were asking like 49-53 and they had 350 and 500 miles on them. Even if that one is "new" and untitled, its still nearly model yrs old and used.

Someone somewhere said that cars.com said that there are almost 2000 '13's on dealer lots new. Sound unbelievable? Look for yourself. About 10 in the dallas area alone.

Was it Certified? If so I would have pulled the trigger. I was rear ended unfortunately by a DUI driver. Rear bumper was repainted but not replaced. Damage was very minimal surpisingly. You could have located the repair shop that did the job and the work order to find out what exactly was done. Easy fix. But if your going for new, that go for it.

It was certified...just got a call from JJ San Diego. Vehicle sold. They were asking $51.4K for it. Thought that was workable...maybe offered $50K flat. But there were a few barriers, I'd have to purchase without even seeing the car. It was in NC, I'm in SoCal. Gonna go new, hopefully catch a '13 at close out for '14 release.

There are a few new '13's available here in SoCal. Financially, the price of #1335 would have been great. $100/month more than I pay now. Wih trade value/dn payment I'm looking at $200/month more. No biggie!

2,000 ZL1s that are brand new? Well if that is true then I'll be trading in my '12 for a '13 with Nav when the time comes. 2,000 is a bit off though. I doubt that many are unsold.

If I'd know about it sooner, I would have asked. Saw this one Sunday night. Did you get your orders to SD yet? Or they sending you to P.I?

Funny you asked. I got denied the first time and then resubmitted the next day and it was approved. MCRD San Diego in Dec/Jan of this year! I found out I got approved last week.

I live in Cincinnati, it's a fairly small market, and there are 3 ZL1s within 15 miles of my house. All at MSRP, seems easy enough to buy one for a reasonable price.
