Looking at a 2009 Ruby SE RL

Been offered a one owner 2009 Ruby Red SE, manual, all stock with 48k miles. Clean carfax, new tires and in great condition. Seller won't go lower than $12k. Does this sound like a fair price?

Possibly. 2009s are lower production than other years and the SEs lower still but not as rare as a Hydro Blue SE or 2010. $12k...mileage is a bit high for that price I'd think but if the car is in good shape otherwise might be wroth it to you.

I didn't see any Redline info. But still an NA is a lot of fun and that is an excellent price if in good shape throughout and nothing needed. Has the water pump been changed? If not, that is a $1,200 or more to add.

Oh, I see it is an RL. Go get it at that price. Just swallow hard when the water pump calls.

FWIW, I paid $20k for my 2009 Ruby Red (non-SE) back in 2012. it had <11k miles, excellent condition barring one gash. I think the price you are looking at is pretty good.

That's what I paid for my Hydro with that many miles. But an Auto. But 2 yrs ago. so Probably not a bad price.

I am a GM Engineer.

I do not claim to be a GM representative, all of my postings are my own interpretation and personal opinions.

You would buying the best looking Sky made, the color is fantastic. Anything ever happened to mine I would be looking for the Ruby Red without doubt. By far my favorite color. Take it to a GM dealer, and have the go thru, pick out any problems so you can get it fixed. If the list is too high, move on. If I wasn't making a Sky into a trailer I would buy it (upon inspection). Just love the color period. Just realized it is a stick, would never buy it for any reason. But if you can live with a stick, it is good price.

I have to agree with that color being just an incredible color. That's my second favorite color after the Midnight Blue. Wouldn't mind getting a Redline in that color if I could afford it (and had a place to park it).

I called Doug up...T's Spouse. Remember he got his Sky Dragon demolished. He was not interested in becoming part of the Sky family again. Teresa still has her car.

I could see myself buying a clean auto, and just leaving it alone. No mods, other than the braces and a trifecta tune. Just love the way the car looks. Fast, sleek, perfect.

Thanks all for the advise and encouragement. I had the vehicle inspected and it has a couple of minor issues which are a quick and easy fix. It is now sitting in my garage and I am looking forward to enjoying my first Sky.
