First and foremost, it's great to now be part of the Cadillac community! Just purchased my first car, a black 2011 CTS AWD 3.0 Luxury. I bought it used with 48,800 miles on it. Seems to be in great condition. Quite a few miles for a 2 yr old car, but the gentleman before me used it primarily for highway commute. Garage kept. Its in great physical condition.
I did take it in to be looked over before the manufacturers bumper to bumper warranty runs out at 50k. The local Cadillac dealership, Crest Cadillac in Dallas, says everything was in great condition except they had to drain/replace fluid in the transfer case because I noticed some slight chattering when making sharp turns. After this, I am not noticing the chatter any longer. Seems to be good to go.
I bought the car used at a Toyota dealership. First time buying, I think I was dumb in my decision to purchase an extended warranty through Toyota. I purchased a 3yr/36,000 mile Gold Plan extended warranty with Roadside Assistance. And the finance guy threw in free Tire and Wheel coverage for the same length. I paid $2,495 for the extended warranty. Didnt know this was such a bad deal at first. However after reading online seems like it might be too much.
Did I get owned? Let the ripping begin....be easy on me!
