Start checking Craigslist, I found that one in 5 minutes, maybe there is one closer to you. I bought mine from a guy like that, my car was never is rain/snow and had records, it was hard to tell it wasn't new - and he lived not far from the one in the Ad. Not much rain or snow in this area tho...

I favor the one owner car with lower miles because you should be able to get service/records and history. Condition is a key factor. Chevy improves these cars each year so normally newer is more improved. I think there was additional HP added to the 08 year. All things considered I would prefer a 20010-2013. Good luck.

I just searched Facebook marketplace and in under two minutes found a handful of 2008 (all different colors, conditions, millage) for $20,000.00 or less.

Good luck with your search!

Default Parking in reverse

i chuckle whenever I see the park it in reverse comment. Some of the older members remember the anti theft park it in reverse in the 70,s cars to remove the key. There was an actual mechanical linkage connection between the trans and the steering column lock on my 72. I got used to it. No big deal.

Between the two you are looking at, I would pick the 2007.
