When i bought my 02 f250 4door lariat w/7.3l powerstroke diesel, I would have waited another month or two for the 03 model if i knew/if the salesman told me about the updated transmission and engine that will be on the 03 models.
Heads up for 2004. Bigdaddycoats from the Edmunds.com board has found a site with information regarding the 2004 Cadillac CTS changes and or upgrades. The site 2004 Online Order / Reference Guide has specific ordering information regarding many GM makes and models I'm assuming for use by dealerships. Navigation is quick and easy and could provide some much needed information regarding package option changes for the 2004 model as well as engine questions. I have cut and pasted the "new" information for the 2004 Cadillac CTS. But there have been some option packages that have changed or that have been added that might interest you if you're looking to buy a 2004 Cadillac CTS like I am. Anyways big thanks to Bigdaddycoats for the heads up on this website, let the 2004 CTS information search continue.

From what I have heard: many people have called their dealers to see if the no manual transmission on the 3.6L is a mistake or to complain about GM only offering it on the 3.2L. What the dealers have said is manual transmission CTS's only account for 2% of total CTS sales. Basicially put, if people don't buy, dealers stop ordering, and manufactures stop producing.
