First post guys. I am due to take possession tomorrow of a USED 2018 GT1 with drivewise, but no LSD. The car has 9600 miles and I?m OTD tax/fees at 35,342.

But, I can also get a 2019 GT, for ~ 36,000 OTD. Only option is blind spot indicator.

I personally think think GT1 is the best option, but what are you guys? thoughts?

Welcome! I'd go with the GT1 for more options. Since you're looking at the GT and GT1 you won't miss any of the new features like 360 camera or wireless charging found on the 2019 GT2.

With the driver assist feature I do feel better about my wife driving it [hihi].

I feel like I got descent deal on the GT1 and get some bells and whistles. Thank you for the reply.

Is the used Stinger a Certified Pre Owned?

If not, be aware that the warranty cuts in half.

No it is not certified, which I'm seeing 5yr/60k to the second owner correct?

Should I be concerned that it might not make it that long?

Also, it DOES NOT have the Drivewise package. They listed the car wrong. They dropped 500.00 more off after refusing delivery. So all fees and taxes OTD for 34,8xxx.

So I think for 2,800-3k less than the 19 GT, I think that was good deal.

Correct. 5/60 to the second owner.

Obviously there's no concern for that with them having a 10/100 from the factory. LOL

That?s what I was hoping[thumb].

I feel like it was reasonable deal, taxes where ~1900.00 alone [crazyeye].
