Should I buy this 2008 Sedan with less than 17,000 miles ?

Hey folks, I just joined the forum. Sorry for my first post being a question and introduction at the same time.

I am working in South Korea, and looking at this low mileage 2008 G35 Sedan with just under 17k miles.

The dealer says it was a single owner, weekend car with no accidents. (hence the low miles)

Is this a steal for about $9500?

What are some common issues or complaints about the 2008 G35 sedan from owners?

I appreciate any feedback!

definitely test drive it and have a mechanic look it over really good, but yeah, that's a steal, I picked up my X for 6500 with 136k.

I'm jealous if that is for real. Did you do the Korean equivalent of a Carfax to check the vehicle's history?

I have a 2007 in the same colour, also in South Korea. 100,000 miles though.

Standard Korean fuel is pretty crappy, so you might want to look for GS Caltex stations that sell premium fuel (고급휘발유). It's a lot more expensive, but my engine sounds much happier with it.

Be careful about who you take your car to. A local mechanic who specialises in imported cars cleaned my throttle bodies and could not complete the idle relearn procedure. I insisted on him taking the car to Infiniti and getting his mistake fixed.

Also be careful about where you park. Korean parents don't teach their children to open doors carefully, and even some adults will open their doors into your car out of a lack of respect for strangers.

Hey~
Thanks for the information. This is my first time driving in Korea and the narrow roads and traffic can be pretty frustrating. I will definitely look fo the GS gas stations for the premium fuel.

Will be careful about parking as well. Appreciate it.

^not sure why my previous reply isn't showing...

I checked the paperwork the salesman gave me, and some history the car shopping app provided...but not a comprehensive carfax here. Do you know how I can check?

but yea, I will definitely look for those GS gas stations with premium fuel....And also be careful where I park my car.

Besides the narrow streets, terrible traffic and confusing roads, it's been fun driving so far~

You can always use fuel additives like Seafoam if there are no top tier fuel stations.

It only provides incidents and information reported to insurance companies. I once bought a cheap car with frame damage that had no record of an accident on that website. The inspection required for all dealer-sold cars in Korea is more useful (reported the frame damage). The inspection report should have been on a yellow piece of paper, or copied onto a normal piece of paper and displayed on the car's dash.

You can also enter your car's plate on the Korean version of that website to check free of charge if your car has ever been reported as a flood or salvage vehicle. I looked out of curiosity and there is no flood/salvage record for your car.

Very high quality fuel is available. The issue is the 20% markup. There isn't anything between gutter and top quality.
