    which looks quite promising, but a little suspicious

    Re: Reliability past the 100,000 mile mark

    actually i called a local caddy dealer asking if they could run a vin to see if it was serviced
    apparently he claimed that he can't track that information once the car is out of warranty, or at least he could only tell me what stuff was done BEFORE the warranty ran out, even if the car was still serviced at a dealership after that point

    I ust picked up a nice 2009 win 123,000 so I will keep you posted. My mechanic had a look at it before buying it and gave it a green light. It needs brakes and a full tune up and tranny flush, but other than that, it was good to go. At 11K, I think it was a good buy. It's mostly a base RWD, but my wife is into sunroof's and how could she pass on that ultraview sunroof! I expect that with normal maintenance that it will see 250K.

    Re: Reliability past the 100,000 mile mark

    It was a 2nd owner private seller. My wife found it on a back road sitting in a yard for sale. The more I research, it was a steel at 11K. I can find anything close under 17K. I picked it up today and dropped it off at my mechanic for brakes, tranny flush, full tuneup and some winter tires. It will be snowing soon here in Michigan. It has the direct inj V6, sunroof, and 6 speed auto upgrades, but no NAV or bluetooth. I plan on swapping out the onstar with a bluetooth capable one as soonas I can figure out what PN's to get. I'm actually thinking of just driving for the winter then selling it and looking for an AWD with the full NAV, but time will tell.

    Did you have a CTS yet? This is my first and the little I drove it today, I like it!

    I have an 09 CTS base RWD. Mine has integrated bluetooth. I purchased my car in Canada, where I think (not sure) bluetooth was standard?
