Hi guys

Im negotiating on a 2009 cts v sedan with standards seAts, nav,sunroof, etc..
It only has 3K miles. So it's in great condition.
My question is what do you people think about $57k OTD?

Personally i still feel like this price is too high..

I picked mine up for 50k they were asking for 58k, same miles also.

Initial reaction: Yes. That car is two years old. Without the recaro seat option, the MSRP on it brand new was probably about $10k higher than the OTD price you've quoted. Since I just bought a used '09 myself, I'd like to think that these cars hold their value well, but I haven't seen '09 selling for such a high price since used '10s starting hitting the market the last 6 - 9 months. Is it a manual or automatic transmission? Since used manuals are harder to find, that may partially explain the asking price.

I too would think a manual would be a higher price.

try it. if you convince them you are serious about buying, and they want to get rid of it, they will keep calling you.

I would offer $52K and tell them you plan to look around a little more if they don't except it. Then give them a couple of days to think about it. Cecil...........

The dealer that had my car was asking 54,900 and I got it for 48,700 OTD.. So you have quite a bit of room there to play with with them asking 58k. I'd offer 50-52k and go from there. Be patient it may take a week or two but they'll come down.

If they can't sell it for under $52K then they paid too much for it.

I wouldn't pay more than $47K to $50K. Try to chew em down more. They probably paid $43-$45 or less for it.

You wont be as happy with the Audi. I test drove an S6 and IMO it did not pull the same as the Caddy. I do believe it had slightly more room though. Now if it snows where you live the S6 will do. (SIGH)....oh how I miss my Q7 :(

The asking prices should come down soon I think as more 2009 will come off lease soon.

I don't think there were many 2009 CTS-Vs on lease. Most were purchases, not leases. 2010 and 2011 CTS-Vs had lease programs on them.

I still think offering $53K OTD on a 2009 model year is too much. Just saying. Start low balling and wait for a counteroffer.

That's what I keep saying. The car should be no more than $50K out the door.

Apples vs. oranges on the V vs. the S6. The S6 was a serious contender when I purchased the V. I thought the S6 felt more visceral and directly connected to the road. Of course, on paper, the V will clean the Audi's clock but I really did like the way it felt and sounded. In the end, it was the complete lack of customer service I experienced at my local Audi dealership. Not one of the them actually knew anything about the Audi and they didn't seem to care. It was like they were thinking: "We don't care about how the car operates, and we know that you'll just buy it because it's an S6 and if you don't buy it someone else will so why bother to learn how the MMI or navigation system works?" Bunch of snobs at Sunset Audi in Portland. Not the first time I've felt that way when I've visited them over the years.

how can you compare an S6 to a CTS-V? An RS6, maybe, but they are not making them anymore, I don't think?
The S6 is more of a brick than the V, and 100 less hp. If it feels more connected to the road, it's because it has even more weight pushing it down there.

Thus the reason I wrote, "Apples vs. oranges."

Correct, the only year the RS6 was produced here in the states was in 2003.

but then you said the S6 was a serious contender when you bought the V. I am not saying they are not similar vehicles, and I can see cross shopping them, but performance wise, there is no comparison.

I saw one RS6 once. It was mean looking. I don't understand why they don't sell it here.

where I live ( reno nevada) it DOES snow.. so the S6 is a viable option. Ofcourse it isn't as FAST as the cts v, but i'm not buying a car just for speed!

after reading a lot of posts here I helf off on my $53k otd offer.. Im going down to test drive it again this friday and will mull and offer of 50-52otd..

on a side note, there is also a 2009 mercedes CLS 550 with 12k miles for $56k ;)
