Default Good price for a used 2017 GS 1LT

I'm looking for a 2017 GS 2LT (or Z51 2Lt) with sub-10k miles... I see two GS' available in my area, both around $57k. Is this a good deal? Or can I do better...

If anyone knows a good place to buy used GS or Z51s at competitive prices, please let me know!

There had been some forum dealers selling 1LT GS for around 58k new. Might check current new pricing.

Private seller would be best bet. One year ago these cars were driven off the lot for $62,000. I haven’t seen the prices drop to $50,000 like I expected. Looks like supply and demand. Not many people letting go of the GS. If your considering GS or Z51. Spend the extra money for the GS. After you own the car you could care less what you paid for it. It’s great to have.

No, that's not a good deal. You can buy a new one for about the same money - at a discounted price dealer.

Looking on the Dealer Forum and drilling down to the different dealers... hopefully one will reach out to me with a good deal.

My brand spanking new, loaded up 2017 3LT, convertible with Mag Ride FE2 was only $63K. You guys need to hire a broker to find better deals.

Thanks... I'm a complete newb here, and am willing to admit it.

I'll keep looking around - but if anyone has any suggestions, pointers, hints - I'm not too proud to listen!

The only way I found to compare new versus used on a C7, was to shop what I could order a brand spanking new one for from the Corvette Forum sponsoring Chevrolet dealers. Once I had that benchmark in mind, it was easy to decide whether new or used. New, was going to be the way for me.

And if you're trading something in, you have to factory the tax savings you get from buying new vs old. For example, if you trade something in for 30k and your tax rate is 6.75, that's just over $2k of savings compared to buy a used one. (depending on state laws of course). Add that with the cost of tires ($2K) and it was easy for me to lean towards new myself.

Thanks for all the replies. I'll check out the Macmulkin site, and I never thought of the tax savings of buying new vs old with trade-in. So, you can't get similar tax savings on trade-in when buying used?

If you really check out some of the Forum sponsor dealers you'll easily find a 1LT and some 2LT's in your target price range. Don't know what area you live in but I've seen 1LT's with A8, red calipers for as low as 52K. Just saying!

You'll get the same tax benefit trading in towards a used car if buying from a dealer. Problem is, the dealer is probably going to be higher priced than a private sale. FWIW, McMulkin had a new 1Lt GS for $55k when I bought my 2LT last Fall. I think you can still find them out there...

On McMulkin, I'm seeing 2018 GS 1LT A8 for $59.5k and 2018/19 GS 2LT for $67k

Not seeing anything in the 52-55k range just yet... Will keep looking.

Verify with your state, but In Ohio you only get tax savings when you trade in on a new car. Not a used one. So a $55k used C7GS cost me the same as a $57k new C7GS. With a 30k trade. Plus, a new (17/18) has rebates and flex cash up to 5-8k. And again, depending on your state youll also pay taxes on the rebates/incentives.

You can find highly optioned 17 GS for low $60s. But they also been sitting around for 18 months. Brand new 19 LT2 GS are $65-66.

I have the 17 1LT M7 Grand Sport in my signature that will be for sale when my Wife's C6Z is finished which supposedly is the end of next week.

I expect I will get what you are looking to pay. I will be asking 54.9k OBO. Has 7.4k on it. Over serviced and it has been tracked a few times. It's in excellent condition and is just a fantastic car. It's currently being serviced again today as well as being detailed. I will start actively marketing the car and put up a real for sale thread once the C6Z is in my possession and ready for shakedown.

If you are interested in a Yellow/Black int Grand Sport I would be happy to sell it to you. Send me a PM. I am in Chalfont, PA just outside Philadelphia.
