    Does this seem legitimate to you?

    2013 CTSV, 2k miles, under $60k

    2013 CTSV, 5k miles, under $60k

    Some of these are certified used also. I'm not sure what that really means.

    Thanks all.

    Kevin

    They look good to me and reasonably priced. you could probably work them down on the price a little bit. Certified basically means condition "like new" with extended warranty available. Click on the certified icon on the site.

    Re: Does this seem legitimate to you?

    My concern would be, if they were demo models, how respectful was whoever was driving them of the break-in restrictions? While buying used is always a risk, I'd think there would be a little more risk when whoever was driving it had no financial investment in the long-term effects of how they drove the car. But, with a 70k mile warranty, it you don't plan on driving it that much (or keeping it over 6 years), worst case is it'd have issues covered under warranty and you could still sell it before the 6 years was up.

    With the average used price of a 12 in the low-50s, spending an extra $5k or so on a 13 doesn't seem like a bad deal.

    Demo units are new. Not CPO. My '09 was a demo from Batchelor Cadillac in San Antonio. It was almost flawless. No rattles, no moonroof creaking, no clicking wheels.

    I almost wonder if the assembly line puts in more love to a V being built specifically as a dealer demo.

    I checked the warranty service on both cars.

    First car - had a wiring issue that was resolved
    Second car - No issues. Was a GM company vehicle

    You are awesome. Do have special view into this stuff? If you do, I'm definitely hitting you up in a couple weeks when I pull the trigger on something.

    Thanks man.

    13 CTS-V with 2k miles is an excellent deal. That dealer is about 45 minutes from me. A great car for someone...

    Keep in mind CPO is not the same as B2B warranty. There is limitations. I find CPO quite questionable in my shopping experience for my V

    Seems more than fair. I bought my 2012 Coupe this Jan, 2013 for $58,500 . It was new, 17 miles, and an MSRP of $71,605. Full warranty. It was a Chrystal Red 6-speed manual, w recaros, suede, moonroof, wood trim....I think it was hard to sell because of the manual.
