Good evening to all! I am the current owner of a '99 STS with a blown head gasket. So sad at 172,k.. I resorted to driving it back and forth to work throughout the winter. It did fine. No hills. Weather warmed up and the cost of coolant was prohibitive. Looking at a few Caddy's in my area. Want to know your thoughts on 2005 STS V8 RWD. I've been dying for another RWD since my '94 Lincoln Town Car! What a pleasure to drive. This one has 70,k. I have access to a code scanner, and will be test driving it Saturday. I know 2005 is the First Generation AND First year. Not thrilled about that, but I see the only recall was for the leaking pinion seal on the rear end. Once that is repaired, are they prone to leak again? Is this something I can keep and eye on and do the fix myself, if it comes up again? I remember when these first came out, and I knew I had to have one. It's just not in the cards right now to by a newer model, so I want to take a calculated risk on this 2005. I know the V-8's were the upper end cars...I think 1SD and higher? It is pearl white, sun roof, parking sensors, XM radio, Navigation. Hope to see it is a 1SG or 1SG. Please leave me your thoughts. Thanks in advance for you time, Ohio Jim
