I have an 07' V8V with manual tranny that I purchased new in November 2007. I'll attempt to answer as many of your questions as I can.

1. IMHO, a big problem. Not necessarily because the car is problematic (mine has not been) but just a major PITA if you need the dealer. Personally a dealbreaker for me.

2. Go for a private party sale. I've done it twice in the past without incidence. Go in with your eyes open, ask lots of questions, take the time/expense to see and drive the car before your buy it or have someone you trust do it for you.

3. IMHO the dealer adds no value if all he's going to do is search public web sites. And most all AM dealers advertise their used inventory on their own site.

4. Sorry, can't help ypu here. My car is a manual and I have not experienced the hesitation you describe.

5. Virtually all the V8V's advertised for sale come loaded. The upgraded stereo and alarm system is nice as is the bluetooth. But I would have bought the car even it if didn't have them.

6. Really no regrets. I still think it is one of the most beautiful cars on the road. I wish I had the disciplne to wait and not buy new because the value drops like a rock. Oh well, the price of impulsiveness.

Good luck with your search.
