    Any Reasons not to buy an 09 CTS-V

    I found a clean 2009 V, fully loaded with only 1 owner and 34k miles. No issues I am aware of.

    Any reasons to stay away from an 09? I would prefer an 11 and up, but hard to find in the Thunder Gray with Ebony Interior.

    There is absolutely no reason whatsoever to stay away from a 2009 V that would be specific to that model year. I owned one and found it reliable.

    The '09s are proving to be some of the most reliable out there. I bought one. Go for it!

    Just sold mine today and it was almost totally trouble free. And that was modded! Built like a vault without creaks, rattles, etc...

    '09s are awesome...

    Only reason to not buy it is if it has a auto trans

    Otherwise, DO IT!

    I just brought a 2009 thunder grey with black interior. Manual. I paid too much, but the dealer would not budge. And to find a manual tranny car is not easy. 20000 miles.

    Don't buy a V period. Everyone will always be staring at your car. The money you will spend on gas is ridiculous. Whatever money you have left from filling it up every couple of days will go into modifications to make it go faster. Take my advise and just walk away.
