1. The STS-V is a totally different beast. It makes 469HP, (compared to the regualer STS V-8 which only makes 320). The STS-V also has the 4.4L engine, where the V8 in the regualer STS is 4.6L.
2. The 4 next to the STS badge on the trunk means that that particular car is All Wheel Drive
3. GET ONE WITH THE NAV !!! Trust me from experience ! It will cost you WAY too much money to add one in after the fact. In fact, most dealerships will not even have a nav. listed in thier parts database for an STS, you'd have to go aftermarket.
Hope this helps !

ya a aftermarket installation of the nav which does play DVD is well not worth it your better off finding one withthe nav. its a whole diff world! and see if it has adaptive cruise control this is a awesome option to have.

I cannot say it often enough, "Different STS models can be very different. Take the time to decide exactly the options you want. Test drive a car so equipped to be sure."

Dealers and sellers will try to pressure you. Just remember who has the money.
