Whats the best year to buy 2007 2008 2009?

Out of those years, the consensus around here will tell you, 2009. The 2009 had the most options before Cadillac started omitting them.

^^^Agreed, and in a Platinum trim level if possible.

Always buy the newest year that you can afford. If you can get a platinum, that's even better!

I have a 2012. Since then (2009) they omitted heated windshield and full leather.... Anything else? But they didnt have the same engine as far as i understand. And the cover over the trailer hitch was updated. I think there was no bluetooth either?

2009 received Bluetooth. The Engine is the same. They omitted rainsense after 2009(The BEST feature, IMO), folding second row switches on the top console, back-up proximity lights in the right rear pillar, 'some' leather and 6 disk DVD changer. Not sure if I left anything else out.


Also, the engine differences was that 2009 received the E85 upgrade and the latter years received cylinder deactivation. Otherwise, the engine is the EXACT same.

Ok, I'm going to ask a really stupid question.... What's the difference between an Ultra Lux and an Platinum? Mainly on a 2009. To be honest, I never thought I would buy/own a Caddi but this was to good of a deal to pass up. So now I'm trying to learn more about them. Thanks.

Grille/front facia, wheels, platinum badges and mostly interior. Headrest monitors, better grade leather, actual burl wood inlays...

I see. Wish I would have known that before I got this one. Oh well, in a few years when I buy another one ill know.
