    I had an '05 and now have an '07. The '07 is by far the best of the two.

    As for CPO - it's just a sales gimmick. They look the car over and check items off and then tack the price of a warranty onto the car. IMHO not worth it.

    By far..? Are you sure it isnt just the radio controls on the wheel?

    I don't know about the 07, but on my 05 certified added quite a bit of warranty. With no deductible. And no arguing with a third party provider. It was worth the $1000.

    I'm still in love with my luxury cpo warranty. So worth the price premium I paid for my V. I can't imagine the many thousands of dollars I'd be out without it. I've even used the free towing once.

    Yes, by far. I had a lot of problems with the transmission in the 05, wouldn't go into reverse problem. Not one single problem with the 07. None of the radio buttons are peeling, the 05 you just touched a button and the paint would flake off. The 07 is more fun to drive, more torquey engine. Oh yeah, the steering wheel radio controls aren't bad either, the replaced the cruise control buttons I had on the 05... ;-)

    CPO - my earlier comment about it being not worth it - I meant you could do better yourself buying an extended warranty. IMHO the CPO warranty is over priced.

    The old Luxury CPO warranty was the best in the business. The new Premium CPO is decent, too, though probably about the same as the best GMPP, with no deductible. ANYTHING from GM is better than anything from a 3rd party company, though.

    Re: Of the 2004-2007's, which would you choose?

    LS2 has a better PCM (computer) making it easier to tune for big mods.
    Good thing, since if you get an LS2 you will want to swap that truck engine.
    LS6 PCM can be tuned well too (even with engine swap), it just made my tuner complain that he wished I had the LS2 PCM to make his job easier.

    Either way the tuner is far more important than the PCM as is the condition of the car you buy.
    If staying nearly stock or just Maggie, I'd prefer LS6.
    If modding either engine, upgrade your Fuel Pump upon exceeding 400 WHP.

    I agree with earlier post " Go for the best all around deal ". My 05 I bought yesterday has 80K on it, but was a one owner who kept it bone stock and
    rubbed it with a diaper. Also it was an extremely low price!!!! So the higher miles and older model didn't concern me.

    My '09 would trump all that for luxury features and lack of major problems. Doesn't mean I love it more than my '04...
