View Full Version : Almost ready to pull the trigger...

11-15-07, 06:41 AM
As you may have already read, I am getting ready to purchase a "new" 2005 CTS-V. I have already had them change the bushings in the rear from information I received on this forum.

Today reading 4drvett's ad for his car he states:

"All TSB's performed (including, suspension buschings, clutch, radiator, nav buttons, etc.)"

What TSB's are out there for the clutch and the radiator? I assume the nav buttons are for chipping paint, which I don't need at this moment. Any other TSBs I should have them look at prior to my purchase?

I did read through the TSB's on the FAQ, but there sure are a bunch of them, and I don't want to miss any important ones.

The dealer is very responsive and has no problem doing the work to the car prior to my purchase, so I want to make sure I get as much done prior to purchase as possible.

I want you all to know what a great resource you have been. If I get this car I will be joining this forum as a full member. If I end up passing on it, I will donate to be board just because you all have been so helpful.

Damn, almost missed whoring, er I mean commenting on this one.
Buy the V, it is a wise decision by you and a great endorsement for superior American-built performance machines, or in this case luxury performance and sometimes (6th gear should only be used if you are taking Grandma to church)-cruising sedan.

More seriously, have the dealership print the VIN history, the service manager should be able to list for you the non-serviced TSBs. We once had access to all the TSBs, but some punka$$ lawyers for The General has to prove their worth in a slow month and had the site owner remove them-Great P.R. GM. Make sure you check the alarm, as mine was not activated from the factory.

Less seriously, if you do not buy it, which would not be my choice, but if said were to happen, be true to your word, join as a member and give out your casino points to the longer poster to your most important thread-ME!!!
