I'm I nuts or what? :blink:

There's a silver 2005 CTS-V I looked at yesterday when the dealership was closed. ($20,900). I'm hooked. B)

I think that is a great choice in a used late model Cadillac. My Wife (She who must be obeyed) has said she would prefer we not have a manual transmission car in the driveway, and I have not decided if that is final or not. I do want to get a V series model next.

Um, :nopicssmiley:

we have tons of V8 euro luxo cars in my town. the CTS is supposed to be a BMW beater but than they throw in the corvette pushrod motor. the LS motor is pretty slick and dependable so its a good value i suppose. I bet its a lot of fun to nail the throttle.

At the risk of repeating myself,

it has two too many doors.

I'm trying to be responsible with the checkbook, but it looks like the next one might be an XLR. It has the correct number of doors.

Warren

EDIT: I kinda like that roof thing also!

EDIT AGAIN: Yes, MAC, You're NUTS! I'm right behind you. I got your back!

I have not driven either a cts-v(400hp) or an xlr(320hp). I think they are 2 different target customers. xlr is more refined, cruiser types and the cts-v is a hotrod acceleration type. of course the xlr-v would add some oomph but at a pretty steep price hike.

I'm with you, Warren. As much as I like the new CTS, prices are falling so fast on the XLRs that one may be my next Caddy.

YEP! They're just about GIVING AWAY these $85,000 cars.

I'm currently on vacation. It seems every time I'm on vacation I come home with a new (to me) Caddy. I'm hoping to last out the week. :D:D :D

Warren

The sales folk are "in a morning meeting." I'm awaiting a call back and some additional photos via email.

Actually, I would rather have an automatic though I can drive a manual with no problem. The 2005 does not come in an automatic version. But from what I can see, the 2006 CTS-V does have an automatic trans. I think I'll take a look at the 2006, but it's likely going to be out of my price range.

Maybe not...we can always hope. :D

The CTS-V Gen 1 from 2004-2007 was only available with a manual transmission.

The 09+ Supercharged CTS-V is available with an auto or manual transmission.

WOW, Business must be great! I left two phone numbers and two email addresses and have yet to hear anything. I'll need to re-evaluate my investment portfolio. Things are clearly looking up.

Warren

Amazing isn't it? Considering the current economic conditions, some businesses just don't seem to understand the importance of GOOD customer service, and it's impact on the bottom line. If you don't mind traveling or shipping the car, there are some VERY good deals in the Texas area (as usual) for Cadillacs.

Hey Warren,

Come on down here and get one.

Bruce and I will help you find one and maybe take you out to a good Texas steak dinner, while you are here.

Or maybe you take us out, since we will find you such a good deal. :D:D

One of the guys on LS1tech posted this nice search link for CTS-V's on autotrader:

[Click here for Autotrader National CTS-V Search]

Hit Modify Search and put in your zip code instead of 75023 (a suburb of Dallas). The list is sorted by mileage.

I test drove the CTS-V this evening. Very nice but it's definitely rough around the edges compared to the STS, which I also gave a test drive. The CTS-V is definitely a performance sports car with stiffer suspension. At this point, I'm eliminating the CTS-V because I need a smoother riding car.

The STS I tested drove was a 2006 (66,000 miles) with all the options. It was the STS all wheel drive. The dealer offered it to me for 17,900, which included giving me 4,000 off as a trade-in for my Eldorado. The monthly payment would be $345

What do you think of this deal?

Too bad it is not just a hair UNDER 50,000 miles...then you could get it certified.

I assume that payment is for 60 months. (5 years)

That sounds like a good price.

It it really is loaded...that was a $60,000 car when it was new.

When you say ALL THE OPTIONS...what do you mean?

Is it Northstar or V6?

Does it have the sunroof?

Does it have NAV?

Does it have the active suspension?

17 inch or 18 inch wheels?

Get the dealer printout of it's service history, and get them to print out the build sheet.

All of that can be done from any of the dealers computers by using GMVIS.
