I am currently trying to buy an 05 CTS-V and local dealers seem very reluctant to move from MSRP. Could anyone that has bought an 05 recently give me some idea what I should be paying or what thier experiences have been?
Thanks

It depends a lot on where you are. I paid invoice (but the dealer kept $1500 trunk money). Since then, some board members have achieved incredible deals. I think it depends on how many your dealer has on the lot and how many other dealers are in the area. Shop around and play hard ball and you will probably save some money.

Welcome to the forums.

Thanks, I am in the Houston, TX.area but am willing to travel a little for the right deal. It seems like there are plenty cars in the area, not sure what the deal is.

I have a decent lease deal I found-23 mo/359. month, 2995. down + 1500. down since I'm not an Olds owner or US vet.
Sound decent?

49k, bought Jan 25- didn't haggle too much- educated of course, and the car was a promo (300 miles from a "golf tornament")

probably could have squeezed for more, as the 49k was b4 I ofund out it was golfermobile.

your dealer is either very lucky or trying to take you for a ride if he thinks he can get MSRP for a V these days. Up here in the mid-atlantic and the Northeast (where the weather has made many performance cars mere garage decorations), these things are sitting around all over the place. On a recetly delivered V with no miles you should be able to get the car for dealer invoice. CArs that have been sitting around for a while or have been test driven are going for well below invoice.

I am sure that the boys from Chesrown in Ohio will pipe in soon with incredible deals (mid 40's) if you are willing to travel and will accept a few miles.

Economy (and the weather) must be good in Houston. February is always a good time to find high perf RWD cars sitting around dealers lots in the Northeast, with great deals to be had.....

See my buying experience. IT explains how I got my deal. YMMV, but GM Buypower + the Internet is your friend.

What color are you looking for? With or without roof and FG2?

I have 3 company used 2005 V's available. With my price you could afford to ship to Texas. All are silver/ black with the roof.
$41980=5600 miles
$42495=3860 miles
$42495=1565 miles
Let me know if any of these would work
Thanks

I hate to sound stupid but, I do not know what FG2 is. I would rather not have sunroof but it would not be a deal breaker though. Any color but red would work.
Thanks

The FG2 shock package is a set of track tuned shocks. These are shipped with the car and installed by the dealer. They are stiffer than stock. They make the car handle tighter, but the tradeoff is a stiffer ride. A search on the forum for the FG2 will bring up a number of prior discussions on this.

FG2 :thumbsup:

I don't think the ride is harsh at all. But as always YMMV.
