On Carsforsale.com, define the make and model in the search section to find a Pontiac G8. Narrow your search by specifying the trim of the vehicle to find a GXP, and filter cars by condition year, engine type, transmission, drive train or engine type. Localize your search by entering your ZIP code or search radius on the site. Appraise the car by checking reviews by owners of similar vehicles, or use a tool such as the True Market Value on Edmunds.com to view the going rate of a similar car in your locality.

Ask for the car’s service records from the owner to determine whether the car undergoes scheduled maintenance on time, and get a history report from the National Motor Vehicle title information system or Carfax, which may help you choose a car over another.

Upon selecting a car, test drive it to determine whether it fits your needs, and listen for unusual noises. Edmunds.com suggests simulating your driving conditions to gauge the car’s suitability. Involve a third-party mechanic in a pre-purchase inspection of the car to identify or rule out possible problems before deciding to purchase a car.
