Nothing I can think of. Check to make sure all rubber hoses, belts, etc look up to par, and make sure all recall work has been performed.

even though you have low miles,because of time passed
you should have all the fluids changed out if you purchase car.
i would of mentioned tires also but your post said it had new ones.

p/s lots of threads about this in the search function.

Look under the front fenders to see if they have been mashed.

The cars were notorious for being lifted improperly, even by GM, and even when new. They have a lift procedure similar to Corvettes.

Driving and working on a Sly 2008 Solstice GXP 5spd 260/260, and the worst-built 2012 LS3 Camaro 1SS to escape from Oshawa.

Gone but not forgotten:
2007 Solstice GXP 5 speed 290/340

Stored and needing to part ways with a 1970 Skylark Custom convertible I have owned since 1989 and turned into a GS455 clone. 462 with 7/8 primary headers, adjustable roller rockers, TA Performance Stage 1 aluminum heads, auto, Chevy 12 bolt, 3.31:1. Sadly a project car now but a driver from '89 to '06.
