2009-2013 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion Discussion, My Order is in Preliminary Stage in Cadillac CTS-V Series Forum - 2009-2013; I put my deposit down some time ago to get one of the three CTS-V's that Crest Caddy would get ...
I put my deposit down some time ago to get one of the three CTS-V's that Crest Caddy would get here in North Dallas. They gave me word late Monday 7/7/08 that the computer finally accepted the "prelim" order. He said he expected it to be "picked up" by Thursday. No pricing yet. With my 1K down, Crest guranteed sticker. Guess we will see what happens. They have done me right with the Escalade so far so they deserve a shot at the biz and no other dealer in North Dallas would do the same.
Since this CTS-V is being built at the Corvette plant, I did ask if I could go to the whole assembly line thing when they put together my car. No answer on this yet. But if they do allow me, bet your butt I will be having a nice long drive home if possible. Anyone know anything on that????
Black Ice (Went and looked at a 2009 CTS in Black Ice and loved it.)
Auto (It better be as good as they say!!!)
All Options. (Sunroof, 19" Rims, Perf Package, Recarros) Not sure why some of the options were listed like that on the order screen, but I guess I will find out.
And a shoutout to urbanski, long timer at the HardForum. (Hope to see you back there soon. Your Caddy needs a PC right? )
Here's hoping the folks at Crest are being straight with you. If not your "adventures" with them will be posted here in the Cadillac Forum for all to hear and see.
That you can count on! I am not here to blow smoke up any skirts. Just figured that some forum goers might like know what is being said to the people with money actually already down on a CTS-V already.
As far as the order goes, I was there with Crest when the computer would not take the order at all but would allow us to look at the options screens (that I saw with my own eyes). I don't think Crest has any reason to lie to me and has made no guarantees on the order being placed anywhere beyond what the system will allow it to do now which was told to me to be accepted by the computer as preliminary.
At urbanski: Did not see the three of us ending up on the same board again either. CIWS left the HardForum years ago, voluntarily though.
I don't think you'll be seeing too many CTS-V's being built in Bowling Green.
Was I mininformed on this? That information did NOT come from the dealer but was something I think I read here. I could be wrong about that as well. If you have more information to share than the statement above, please put me in the know. Thanks!
All CTSs (including Vs) are built at the LGR (Lansing Grand River) plant in Michigan. The Bowling Green facility is not set up to produce Sigma chassis cars.
As far as the order goes, I would guess that your Dealer has placed it in his preliminary order bank. Orders won't be accepted until a Dealer has allocation for it, which no one has right now. On-Line order/ Reference guides aren't up yet, nor is the info on the model pricing server. That will all happen long before allocation is given, so don't get too excited just yet. I'm still guessing late November/early December before we see the first actual pictures of someone in a CTS-V that they own on these forums.
I got a question. If your like a millionaire or sumthin can you purchase a 2009 cts-v in the usa right now,because my fiance's uncle supposed to get us one shipped here thursday or friday and he spent over 100,000 dollars in cash money to get it
