Just like any car, you take care of it. It take cares of you. Abuse it, it's gonna say screw you and it's gonna cost to fix it.
I am not talking about being a heavy foot like some of us including myself. I am talking about not keep up with maintenance such as oil level and what not.
Ive had my 2006 CTS since December 2008, she has a little over 30,000 miles. Now she has over 107,000. All work was done under warranty, so I have no idea how much it would of cost.
What was done was the timing cover gasket, drivers memory seat module, and something else. I just can't recall at the moment.
But in 2009, I was in a head on crash with an 18 wheeler my fault. But the CTS? What a beast, I was able to drive away from the scene while the 18 wheeler could not. Granted it was the finder into his wheel, but still great I drove away. Lol
