    Re: Good price for 04?

    Went and drove it couple little scratches but overall in really nice shape everything seems to work as it should no weird noises, tires almost new, oil at 94%. Negatives 1 key no remotes (how much are new ones?), driver seat couple small crack in driver seat bottom, carpet needs cleaning in spots.

    We agreed since if it all checks out at the dealer or car shop tommorrow I could do 14k which I think is pretty fair. I tried to leave a deposit cuz I don't want it disappearing buthe said he wouldn't do anything with it so long as I'm quick about getting looked at. He even said he could take it in for me although IDE probably rather do it.

    If all goes well tommorrow ill have me a new lade. Cross fingers on the check upmtommorrow.

    Yes I'm going take it myself I just feel better that way. Couple questions if it has power mirrors where is that button what's it look like? Also how can I tell if its 2wd or awd? I also turned off the ac but it seemed to still be on I swear I ave done this on other gm truck before but can't remember how I turned it off and left the fan blowing.

    The power fold mirror control is in the mirror adjuster(it has a yellow mirror in the middle)
    Push the left side to fold the mirrors out push the right side to fold the mirrors in
    The ac button disables the compressor(auto climate controls are different from manual climate controls)
    02-04 all wheel drive models have the 6.0 v8
    Others you will have to look under the front to be sure it has all wheel drive(gm dropped the smaller engine in 05)

    I did the same thing with my truck not long after I got it as I didn't trust the carfax report

    The new one I'm looking at is a 06. It's for sure awd as I found out the letter k in the vin means its awd. Ill have to look for the power folding mirror again I swear I didn't see it. It's also missing the nav disk I just remembered which one would it need and how much? Hopefully tomorrow goes smooth and it checks out ok.

    It's the mirror adjustment control just forward of the window controls(don't feel bad about not seeing it the guys at my local dealer miss it every time (and manually pull my drivers side mirror out by hand) so I ended up not using it in fear of them messing up my mirror

    You see the switch to select the mirror to adjust it(the one just behind it is the mirror adjusting buttons that is the one you use to fold the mirrors
    If you have the owners manual(provided the truck has it) it would show in it in more detail)

    If you want the mirrors to fold in all you do it make sure neither mirror is selected to adjust and push the bottom of the adjustment control, square control, towards you and hold it down until mirrors fold in.

    Wink Re: Good price for 04?

    Who would have known the power side view mirror button was so complicated? My 4 year old was in the driver seat pushing buttons one day and i saw the mirrors fold in. I had to ask him what button he pushed to figure it out!

    I got my 04 ESV with 115K miles for $10K, came with Newish 22"s.

    The previous owners removed the check engine light LED, navigation shows a white screen, rear brakes are gone, and the dvd player is missing. But these are all things i can take care of myself so im happy with my purchase.

    Re: Good price for 04?

    I finally figured out the mirrors lol and they fold in just fine. Got it checked out at a gm dealer. Overall really good needs some suspension stuff, rear brakes, ac belt, some rear gasket and at some point a general 100k tune up fluids etc. Guy said it seemed to be taken care of and everything worked. I have to finish paper work tomorrow but I ended up getting it for 13,700+tax and tank of gas. I'm pretty happy with that. Now too find some rims and that front license plate cover thing.

    Hi grayparatrooper,

    I am happy to hear you were able to get the vehicle checked out and finally felt comfortable buying it! That is exciting. Enjoy driving your Cadillac when you get it

    It's about the same mine was when I got it except cheaper price
    Rear brakes wear quicker then the fronts(I have replaced mine once already)
    I replaced the plugs
    Need new rear shocks(common issue)
    Take care of it and it will serve you well

    Re: Good price for 04?

    thanks I'm pretty excited never owned an American car before always had Toyota/Lexus so we'll see how she holds up. I would have liked lower miles but at this point a 10-15k mile difference isn't that big a deal people drive around here and most are higher mileage. I think teh price is fair for it being an 06 at least around here trucks hold their value well the 04 I missed out on was 15.9 and sold it a couple days and it was older.

    I already researched the parts I need on eBay and they are dirt cheap ill just have to have a local guy install it all. Already got some mods planned out and i can't wait to find some rims I really hate the grampa rims it has lol.

    A couple pix of her
