For Sale: 96 STS - White Diamond

Recommended Posts

My STS is up for sale. I have had a lot of fun with the car over the last five years, but I want to get back into a full size truck.

1996 STS - ~127,000 miles. Transmission was rebuilt at around 102,000. Front suspension was rebuilt at about 107,000 ( all new bushings and links). The car has Arnott passive front struts and rear airbags. The brake system was also rebuilt at this time (all four calipers and rotors as well as parking brake cables were replaced). Fuel pump was replaced with a new AC-Delco at about 112,000. Fuel rail recall was performed last year some time. Sparks plugs and wires and EGR valve were replaced at about 105,000 with genuine AC-Delco parts.

White Diamond exterior/ Shale interior: Paint looks good overall, but it does have quite a few rock/bug chips on the nose as well as a few chips in various other areas. Interior is in good condition - front seats show normal wear for a 10 year old car, back seat has hardly ever been used. Carpet is in nice shape.

Has 7 spoke chrome STS wheels: tires were replaced about 20,000 miles ago (BF Goodrich Traction T/A's).

Equipped with power roof, heated seats, 12 disc changer and steering wheel heat/radio controls. Tinted windows and aftermarket alarm with remote start (1500' advertised range).

I will post pictures in a few days - I need to give the car a bath after the rain storms this weekend.

As promised, here are a few pictures . If anyone is interested, I am open to reasonable offers.

Car also comes with a set of factory service manuals and brand new AC-Delco Parking brake cables. I replaced the cables about two years ago with parts-store stuff and I'm not happy with the way they are holding up, so I bought real AC-Delco's to replace them.

Consumer- the person (other than a Dealer or Transferee) who ordered and paid for the Report prior to their purchase of the Vehicle.3. Customer- a Consumer, or any licensed automobile dealer ("Dealer") who ordered and paid for the Report through an AutoCheck Commercial Service ("Commercial Service" is any site geared solely for dealers or other commercial users, such as AutoCheckmembers.com, either accessed directly or through a partner, and AutoCheck Express) or the Transferee of any such Dealer.4. Report/AutoCheck Report- AutoCheck Vehicle History Report.5. Transferee- the purchaser of the Vehicle from the Dealer.6. Vehicle- the passenger vehicle or light truck to which the Report relates.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS 1. The Customer must have previously purchased the Vehicle and own the Vehicle at the time the claim is made.

The Customer must complete and submit to Experian an executed claim form and provide a complete copy of the Report. Any Dealer Customer must have obtained the Report through an AutoCheck Commercial Service prior to the purchase of the Vehicle.3. The Customer must provide to Experian proof of ownership of the Vehicle in the form of the original bill of sale and a current vehicle ownership document issued to the Customer by the motor vehicle agency of one of the 50 states of the United States or the District of Columbia.4. The Customer must provide to Experian a copy of the front and back of the Branded Title, certified by the issuing state authority. The Branded Title must have been issued at least sixty (60) days prior to the date the Report was run.5. The Customer must deliver to Experian all ownership and registration documentation including, the certificate of title and certificate of registration, properly assigned by the Customer to Experian so Experian becomes the owner of the Vehicle.6. If, prior to purchasing the Vehicle, the Customer knew, or had evidence, of the existence of a Branded Title for the Vehicle, the Protection does not apply.7. Experian will pay a maximum of the purchase price of the Vehicle paid by the Customer (plus warranties and other additional purchases such as installed aftermarket accessories, not exceeding a total of $500).8. If the purchase price of the Vehicle in item 7 exceeds the NADA Used Car Guides used vehicle retail value at the time of the sale, Experian will pay no more than ten percent (10%) over the NADA Used Car Guides used vehicle retail value at the time the Customer purchased the Vehicle.9. The Buyback Protection will apply only if the Vehicle was manufactured in model year 1981 or later. 10.

Dealer Customers must use an AutoCheck Commercial Service in order for their transferees to be eligible for Buyback Protection. Because Dealer Customers are prohibited from using the AutoCheck Consumer Web site, they are not eligible for Buyback Protection if they purchase from a Consumer Web site, and their subsequent Transferees are not covered by Buyback Protection in such instance.16.

He said he was getting back into a full-sized truck.

I bought a 2003 GMC Sierra Z71 off of Ebay.


It has a few more miles than I would have preferred, but none of the local dealers could even come close on the price. It is in very nice shape for the mileage, if you didn't know better, you would swear it only had about 40-50k on the odometer.

I have a few leftover items from my STS that I will be listing for sale soon.
