So I had posted awhile back on here that I was looking into a STS. I love my CTS but it was broadsided last Tuesday, so waiting on other driver's insurance to see if its totaled ($5600 in damage). Since that happened I have been car shopping and found a 05 STS4 N* with 22,000 miles for $13,995. It's it has 17" wheels heated and cooled leather, HUD, navigation, Xenon and heated steering wheel. Now with 05 being first year for this platform how many issues did they have? I don't know if its a 1SG or has F55 suspension, because I have not seen it yet.

Vented seats & HID headlights are usually found only on 1SF & 1SG which would usually have 18" wheels & might have MRC & the 1SG goodies. Get the VIN and convince the dealer to print a build sheet. It doesn't cost them anything.

The label with all the RPO codes is on the spare tire cover. Cadillac watched the 2005's pretty close and warranty claims weren't particularly higher than latter cars. Unless it's a very late build, you won't have the feature to hold the Fob Unlock button to close all open windows.

I can't tell for sure but the wheels look ALOT like the v6 wheels. Going to look at it if the CTS is for sure totaled but I thought that N*'s only had 18" wheels especially with all of the options it has.

There aren't any specific v6 wheels. I've seen northstars with the 17 inch wheels. Depends on the package

That car sounds like it is equipped like mine. I have a 1SF car...17" wheels are included. The 18" wheels are part of the 1SG package.
