My dad had a 98 T/A vert but it was totaled 3 years ago. Well, he's getting to itch and wants another one. This time keeping it as a weekend toy.

To me it seems pretty decent, but what’s real strange is KBB is saying it’s worth 17K and Edmunds is saying 10K..

I told him to offer them 12K and see what they say.

What do you guys think?

Thanks
Steven

It is a nice looking and clean car. If there are no issues with it, then the 15K tag is a good deal in my opinion. I would very thoroughly check the engine & drivetrain. Get them to put it up on a lift for you to check the underside for leaks ect. Make sure there are no hack jobs on some of the engine parts like a half assed EGR/AIR removal or TB bypass. I would also suggest taking it for an extended drive at varying speeds including WOT. Not just the cruise around the block that dealers like to give.

Good luck with it!

What decadence said as far as extended test drive most reputible dealerships will let a serious buyer have a car for a day. Also check nada for price also.

It's a ******* sex color. It's a rare color also. Only offered in 2000-2002. One member on here has a MRM Vert and it's like 1 of 7 MRM Verts made in 2002. I'd pull the trigger on it.

$12,000 is too low for this low mileage car. Edmunds is silly low on F-bodies and out of touch. I don't even use them as a guide at all. KBB and NADA are helpful tools in price research although not flawless as they take no consideration into the number of owners or several other important matters.
This T/A vert looks very clean and the Carfax looks excellent! No winter issues while owned in Hawaii is a huge PLUS! Lots of maintenance history and low miles equals a nice win here. The asking price is $15,000 and I'm sure $14,000 will put your dad in the driver's seat. This appears to be a good deal and I would be interested in it if I was looking for another T/A vert. The car is worth every penny of $15,000 so getting it for less is a no-brainer. GO FOR IT!!

Looks great, if you can get it for $12K that would be quite the buy IMO.

Thank you very much. Thats some very good info and some things I never thought about when looking at a used car.

I was wondering about that. Now that I think I donít think I've seen very many T/As in that color.My dads 98 was a NBM which he liked a lot but he loves this color..

Good info, NADA says 13K. So I guess getting for 14K or less would be a deal. According to one website itís been sitting on their lot a long time.
Im pretty most people in California donít even know what a Pontiac is let alone a Trans Am. hahahaah
