I'm looking for a dealer that is known for having a good reputation for selling used Vs, and knows what they are selling. I see post about "contact Dealer 'X' for a great deal", but that is on new inventory. I've checked Autotrader but I see some Caddy dealer don't utilize it. I would love to avoid the typical stealership games and BS and enjoy the buying process. BTW, I used to sell cars(Nissan) at a very high volume dealer and saw/know the BS people go through when buying a car. Obviously the closer to South Jersey the better, as I have a trade and I'd hate to drive 200 miles one way, to have to drive all the way home, not in a V.
So who can you recommend from first hand experience? Also who are the dealers I should stay away from? Your help is greatly appreciated.

Googled Devoe and that is in Naples, FL? Not exactly near S. Jersey.
How about Lindsay, not really close, but not 200 miles either.

I ordered my V from Alan Gorman at HOLMAN Cadillac in South Jersey. My dad bought his DTS's used there from Alan. My dad made sure I only went to Alan. Call them up and ask to talk to Alan.

Sorry I meant Desimone Cadillac... I am in FL right now and it just came out wrong. But agreed. Lindsay is the best.

Thanks guys. Desimone is now Holman. I did look there but they had one 11 Black Diamond a few weeks back but it was out of my immediate price range.
Any dealers I should stay away from?

I would also recommend Holman Cadillac. I have repaired interiors for the dealership for the past 10+ years and know many of the employees. I actually bought my black raven 2009 V sedan 6MT there in the middle of January this year. I dealt with Rick Caruso the used car manager and worked out a good deal with him on the car. I also worked on the 2011 black diamond V that you mentioned was there a couple weeks ago. I'll bookmark your post and keep an eye out for you. Let me me know exactly what your looking for and want to spend.

Hey Mike, thanks for the heads up. I tried to PM you but I guess I need more post.
So what do you do interior wise and what specifically did you do the 2011 Black Diamond they had?

It's not just you, even I can't PM him. He needs more posts too. Dumb forum feature, I know.
And if that's the same one, I saw that it had floormats installed.

How many post do I need to be able to PM. I looked throughout the site and even "searched" and could not find a definitive answer. Can a mod please answer?

It's not publicly disclosed. I think it's 25 or 30, if not, then 50.

Ok thanks for the info. First I ever heard of that rule on a forum.
03-28-12, 04:22 PM
Hey guys. Im fairly new to the forum too and don't really understand the pm rule but it is what it is. Don't know if you read the thread about the get together on April 22nd at NJMP. I'll be there if you want to hang out and talk. Otherwise you can call me at 609-413-3984 or email me firstname.lastname@example.org until we reach our posting limit..lol.. And get pm permission.

Cool, I saw the thread but am unsure if I will have a V by then. If I do I would to make it out since I'm only about 45 minutes from NJMP.

BTW, over 20 post and still no PMs......maybe 50? lol
