Here is a link. (http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/cadillac-sts-forum-2005-through-2010/197257-those-1sa-1sb-1sc-1sd-1sf.html)

I might as well just post them again:

Talking Those 1SA/1SB/1SC/1SD/1SF/1SG things

After a lot of searching I found these build option codes on the Cadillac Drivers site. This is all of them I found and pulled out of various VIN lookups. Note that for different years there may be different items for the same code. I, and others have asked about these codes so I thought I'd share them here for those of you that like to know that stuff. No particular order as to code or year and this is all the info I have on them. I hope yours is here.

Too much data...

I like 1SC. 1SG can be loaded to the gills.


IMHO, there's a 2008 N* coming off 3-year-lease that's a much better value. CPO

Thanks for your replies & explaining the different 'levels' ... we're really concerned about buying a model (buying it new) that is going to be discontinued.
Also notice the 'safety-ratings aren't as good for example as the CTS... does the STS have side-impact protection? Any and all ideas/suggestions/warnings or 'go-aheads' would be very welcomed.....thanks in advance !! ''SG'':thumbsup:

Yes...get a fully loaded 1SG V8 car..you will enjoy it much more
And buy it 3-4 years old off lease and CPO
The depreciation on these is crazy and likely to be more so since they are about to be 86ed

That being said its a heck of a car for the price at 3-4 years old...I am not sure what you have been driving...but understand that it will not be what the others are worth( in its class) down the road.....so don't get "fast talked" by a salesman that says "this is the end of a classic and people are waiting in line"

As for safety features, these are modern cars with side airbags, 'smart' passenger airbags, stabilty control, etc. The STS does have a higher roofline (which is one of its advantages IMHO). A smaller passenger compartment makes for a more rigid area but a larger size provides advantages, too.

If you have your heart set on a brand-new never-driven car, I wouldn't recommend an STS. That buyer needs a car that isn't heavily discounted new and one that holds it resale value. The STS shines as a value in the demo/factory program/fleet/lease return market.

All cars run on used parts. My wife bought a 1 year old Hertz STS (not perfect - it's a rental) for HALF MSRP. I bought a 3 year old lease return with 39,000 miles for a THIRD MSRP and CPO is still giving me a factory warranty (60,000 & 3 years)! We get a scratch... So what, we fix it. Someone scratches your brand new 1SC, it's a tragedy. Shop around, it's fun.
