: For Sale 2005 Cadillac CTS-V - 14k Miles

I just bought this car back in April with the intent of holding on to it for a long, long time. Then we got a big dog, which I can't bring myself to put in the Caddy, I started getting into motorcycle track days more, and my wife won't give up her Mini, so the V is up for sale and I'm in need of a truck\SUV.

This car is a bit of a barn find. When I bought it, it had 8k on it and hadn't been registered since 2008. If I had to guess, I would say it hadn't seen rain before my ownership. Since then, I've been using it as my daily driver, mainly just commuting to work and back. It currently has a bit under 14k miles on it and is slowly ticking upwards.

Since I've owned it, I changed the oil, put on some new tires, and replaced the front differential bushing to get rid of the rear end clunk (common issue on these cars). There is some flaking plastic paint on the radio (another common GM issue) and the exterior paint isn't perfect. Other than that, it's pretty close to a new car. No dents, no dings.

This is an epic car and I can already see myself regretting this sale. It's got awesome power, it handles, it brakes, and it's comfortable and presentable. I'm not in a huge hurry to sell so while I'm not firm on the price, lowballers need not respond. This is a rare car and I can almost guarantee you won't find one with this kind of mileage anywhere else. If this ad is still up, it's still available. Serious buyers only, no joy rides will be permitted. The bank does have the title, but I am open to "trades" for a four door truck. Leather and navigation preferred. Nothing over 50k miles please.

Man I wish this would've been up a month ago... definitely would've grabbed this instead of the STS.

What blemishes does it have on the exterior?

I am very interested. I have someone coming to look at my Lexus tonight.

Thanks,
Elias

The car is in Manassas, VA.

As for the exterior, it's has maybe 5 or so small superficial scratches here and there. From 3-4 feet away you'd be hard pressed to see them, but if you wash the car, you would notice. They're nothing a claybar and some elbow grease wouldn't get out, I just haven't found the time to do it. The hood also has a few nicks here and there.

Like I said, it looks new from any reasonable distance, but I'm a picky person. I'll try and take some pictures to show you what I'm talking when I get home tonight.

Thanks for the info. If you can email me some pictures and your email to leloz80 @ hotmail.com

I just had a few questions that I can ask via email or by phone.
