    Sorry but I don't have the vin# with me at work.
    It was excecutive owned. Hope that helps a little.
    I know my wife researched it on the web at carfax and they didn't show any owners, if that's possible.

    Thanks again

  • You're right, the dealer did say he picked it up at a auction yesterday or day before.

    ..... "Black on Black FULLY equipped" .... whatever that means .l.o.l....

                 What it means too me is: auto, slider, Bozo sound, split seat, luxo/sport/cold pack, about $43ish on the MSRP ... if so, then the dealer probably paid in and around the mid/tall $27ish figure, maybe the low low $28ish figure .. by the time he gets it home with the auction fee and transport, it probably hits the table at the mid/tall $28ish figure - CPO .? .... $31,9/$32,5 would just about kill it, and $32,9 if you just can't live or breath without it .... $33,8 is all the cookies in the cookie jar ....

                          Good luck and let me know ....

    It has the navigational system, xm radio, wood steering wheel, 6 cd changer, leather sheets, The Sport Package, OnStar, Luxury Package, automatic sunroof, and maybe more.
    I'm lame on the language, what does "$31,9/$32,5 would just about kill it ..." mean?

    Thanks again. You've been a huge help!

    Hello, I will be negotiating a 2005 CTS this week and I wonder if anybody knows any other "hidden" incentives besides the $750 currently listed on Edmunds? How close are people getting to invoice? I am in So. California if that helps. Thanks!
  • Ok here are my numbers, just got a CTS this Sunday {only options were automatic trans & XM radio}. These numbers are for a lease, do not know how closely they will mirror if you are buying.

    MSRP - $34,070
    Gross Capitalization - $32,534

    Rebates:

    $1,000 CCR
    $1,000 Resident / NCL
    $750 NSE
    $1,000 Two Coupons CHT
    $3,310.07 GM Card Rebate {Gold Card with no limits}

    Everything seems to indicate that there are at least $3,750 in rebates out there for leasing a 2005 CTS in my area. Not sure what all the codes mean, but the CHT coupons seem to be at the discretion of the sales manager as I ended up doing the deal with him after having a problem with the salesperson.

    Thanks loanie! I started the process today and they have applied some of the items you mention but I am not sure the amounts. They have basically taken the CTS down to invoice. I am OK with that but if I recall correctly it is this time every year I get a coupon from GM (credit card) giving me another $1000 off if I purchase before the end of the year. I would hate to get the coupon after I purchase the car.
  • This weekend I received an "updated" price quote. Last week this is the deal they forwarded me here in Illinois via GMBUYPOWER. Sticker 05' CTS, $41,845. MINUS $3,572 (dealer discount) MINUS mfg. rebate ($750). Now today they ADDED (for just 2 days) ANOTHER $1,500 off for a total cost of $36,023. Live 45 miles outside of Chicago. Hope this helps.
  • In NYC area, purchased 05 CTS w/ auto and PDX Sport Package - MSRP 35620 ; Dealer price 31475.
  • Hi, I'm looking for a Cadillac Certified Pre-owned CTS (2003, possibly a 2004). I WAS looking for a CPO 2001 Catera, but couldn't find one with color and options that I wanted. I was wondering why the TMV difference in Edmunds for this car as a "regular" used car and a "certified" used car is some $3,000.00 when I know that a "certification" costs only $1,000.00 plus costs to correct any "checklist" problems (tires being the most likely culprit). Any comments on buying a pre-owned CTS out there? Thanks in advance. Mike, Tampa FL area.

    Since I won't have a trade, I want the best deal, to cut down on the sales tax hit. I hear of this car taking a $10,000.00 hit in resale in 1 year, and so don't want to see (or pay) anything over 25,000.
