    CTS Pricing Question

    Hey all, I am new to the forum and have been looking to purchase a ~2010 CTS. I've wanted one for the longest time, and now am in a position where I can finally make it happen. I am wondering if I should pull the trigger now, or if it would be smart to wait until the 2014 model hits dealers to buy. It would seem that with a new model out, demand for the current generation would drop, also causing pricing to drop. Maybe some of you have experience with this from the 1st to 2nd gen. Any insights or thoughts are appreciated. Thanks guys!

    My thoughts are if you see it, buy it. If you snooze, you lose.

    If a particular car is available and it has all of the goodies you want, then pull the trigger. I'm glad you are looking at a '10 or newer. Fewer problems.

    One could argue that because the new CTS will cost about $6-7K more that the current model, the prices of used CTS's should go up when the new series is released.

    That attitude would definitely be every car dealers dream! But yes, I am looking for something pretty damn specific, so if I saw exactly what I wanted, I would probably scoop it up.

    That is definitely an interesting point for debate.

    One could argue that, and one could be very, very wrong.

    Name one car apart from something VERY exclusive that's gone up when the newer, flashier, sexier with the newest goodies has come out.

    I agree. I mean, I could see someone being DEAD SET on wanting a CTS, but not being able to afford a newer body style, but in general, I don't think that would be the trend across the board so overwhelmingly that it would raise the prices of used CTS's.
