Hello,

I can get a very good deal on a Cadillac SRX V8 from a dealer. This car is a new 2006 that they want to get off the lot. Anyway, it is a V8 loaded with every option, i.e., nav, DVD entertainment system, Bose, etc. I can get it for $32,000 with my GM Card discount. Do you think this is a good deal?

Thanks,
Simon :)

Even you can agree (get the carfax) that a brand new, 06 with no miles on it (get the carfax), that is fully loaded (get the carfax), which retails (or did retail) for 48-52k new, for 32 is a steal (get the carfax).

you may want to check into the history. Someone may have pinched a wire.

A true "fully loaded" V8 would MSRP in the $55K range. At 2 years old, $32K is still a steal.

I've heard CARFAX can be fooled.
Can you get the original selling dealer information from Cadillac and then trace ownership/location from there?
Sounds like a unbelieveable deal which raises visions of New Orleans/Katrina.
Was the owner in New Orleans at any time?
Did the owner loan the car to a friend who was in New Orleans at any time?
Don't mean to play mind games with you but something doesn't feel right.
Maybe it's because I couldn't find a deal like that!

I agree with you, the price is excellent.

Anyway, I test drove the SRX today and I loved it. This is one quick car! Plus, the navigation system worked great. Better in my opinion than the one in my Lexus GS430. The rear seat room was great, and so was the front. However, there were a lot of cheap looking plastics in this car. The dash looked awful in my opinion, however interior comfort made up for that. I liked the Ultraview roof, but the sunshade looks too cheap.

All in all, the SRX V8 is an excellent car, and definitely the best SUV that I have driven. I am going to continue to look at cars. Tomorrow or sometime this week I will test an Acura MDX and a BMW X5, and maybe a Mercedes ML or Infiniti FX35.

Great deal. Heck the buyout on mine at the end of my 27 mos lease is more than that (35K) - and it will be a used car at that point in 2008. The one you are looking at is "new".

TSS,
how much was your sticker, and how much you pay a month for a 27 month lease?

This opened up a can of worms the last time.... I even faxed Tony (GXP) the lease and window sticker b/c I was being questioned so much about it - but I got a great deal on my 06 (ordered it from the factory in June, 2006) due to numerous rebates and GMS pricing.

In any event, 27 months, 12K miles per year, sticker price $54,580, monthly payment $564.00. Total down including 1st months payment approximately $850.00.

Buyout at the end of 27 mos: $35,431.00.

Let me know if I missed anything that you need. Presently, someone is looking to take-over my lease - and they will be getting the great deal, expecially since I am already 2K miles under my limit for the first 12 months (just turned 1 year old and 10K miles).

Were there any known problems with the 2006 SRX V8? :)

man that is awesome.
I vaguely remember you mentioning that. I can't believe you got a 39 month lease price at 27months.

I knew I got a good deal, but not how good until this forum. The person who potentially is taking over the lease likely does not realize how good either. Especially since they also are getting 2K free miles (basically a 14K per year lease now). If the takeover comes through, great. If it doesn't, thats just fine still. It is a super vehicle. I just miss my Tahoes (driving position and size), and a 403 HP Escalade can certainly fill the void!

I understand that fully loaded means different things to different people. An SRX fully loaded (even a 2006) was over $60K. I know this because my 2005 stickered at $59,600 and did not have the premium white paint which would have topped 60,000. Plus an engine block heater and a couple of other misc options would have truly placed it closer top 61 or 62.

An SRX with a Northstar V8, AWD, MRC, Ultraview, 3rd row seat, GPS, DVD, etc will certainly be in the high 50's.

Any 50,000 dollar vehicle that can be bought for the mid 30's in "like new" condition would be a great buy.

After further deliberations, I'm tending to agree. especially with the new car warranty---if you really like the vehicle. I would go in and put down a check for 30,000 or so and see if they bite.

Prices actually dropped - significantly, in 2006. You could not hit a 60K SRX in 2006. Mine had everything, yes everything except rear seat DVD and block heater and it was less than 55K.
