I just had both those changed on my 2017 g90. The dash is a poor material problem. Very well known issue. The same for the radar coverHello,
1st post on this site but long time reader.
I am looking to buy a 2017 G90 5.0 Ultimate.
I thought I found a good one down in Florida with 11,000 miles on it.
However, the sales manager just informed me that they have to replace the dashboard due to cracking. This is after replacing the radar sensor cover previously as well.
Is this a red flag for more problems in the future or a good buy if I can get them down from $42,800.
I'm hunting for an audi s8. 2017 or 2018 low mileage. Darn things still arent cheap yetGeneral note to all: Used car prices are plummeting due to the time of year, a soft market and so many cars coming off lease. This is especially true of luxury brands such as Audi, BMW, Mercedes and similar, including Genesis. But Genesis sells in such small numbers that it is only by inference that I know their prices are squishy. If your competition has dropped their prices then you have to as well to stay competitive.
Don't be afraid to offer significantly under the asking price. Tell the seller that you like the car, but feel the price doesn't match the competition. Be nice about it, but firm. They want to meet year end sales goals, they won't be insulted and they will call you back.
Agreed! What is that? Like 25% below MSRP? That's a lot of car for the money!! Bear in mind that we are a week or so out from the LA Autoshow, where Genesis will be "unveiling" the 2020 Genesis. (It is out already in Canada and elsewhere?). So this may push pricing even further South, especially for used models.56730 is a steal for a 5.0 Ultimate
100% agree. I predict 2019 models sitting in lots for a good while.Agreed! What is that? Like 25% below MSRP? That's a lot of car for the money!!

would you be paying cash? If not, why not take a lease, drive it and they buy out (if numbers work right)?So I asked the dealer in Oklahoma with the 56700 deal on a new, learned that is only for a lease. Actual quote is like 62830.
I get your drift. But we are not looking at someone like you, who would probably be considered the exception. If you looked at the CarFax, it was *highly* unusual (not *just* low mileage). Someone unfamiliar may not take note or understand why it would be unusual. In the end, my post was intended to be helpful, having some experience with this. Everyone should feel free to disregard my post and do as they wish, of course. For someone like me though, I cannot afford/would not be pleased to make a 40K +/- mistake - for you as someone with 5 cars, this is probably not an issue, and may not be an issue for the OP either? I'll leave this as my last word on the subject. Good luck to you and to the OP and have an enjoyable and safe weekend!Ahem....
> It has two VERY big red flags. Unusually low mileage for the age,
Before you avoid every low mileage G90 out there consider a few things that might oppose that view as a red flag.
Speaking for myself and probably quite a few other G90 owners here, we’re getting older than dirt and just don’t drive as much anymore ;-)
Seriously, my wife and I have 5 cars (3 of them 2017 or newer) and she hasn’t driven in 4 months. Care to guess how many miles we might be putting on cars these days? I’ve only put about 1K miles on my 2018 G90 in the last 7 months and doubt it will have much more than 15K at the end of 3 years. I think you might actually want one of my used cars. Call it any color flag you like.
P.S. Two owners? Got a story for that too. I once leased a Porsche 928S4 on my company and then bought it off lease personally at the end. Hence, two owners - but still me.
