: Tell me I did a good thing today.

Well..today I did it. I put a deposit on a 2002 Cadillac Escalade. It's white diamond, with not a single option left out. It has just over 60k miles and I paid $21,000.00 for it. Was this a good deal? I hope I like this thing because it is kind of a big payment.

I think so.

There was a 2002 here at our dealership 2 months ago when we were shopping for ours (we bought an '04) and they were asking $23,500.

I forgot to mention that the 02 here in College Station was black, the rear Crest logo was messed up and would have had to have been replaced and there was a Nokia phone holder/charger thing installed with wires running all over the dash.

We passed on it right away.

You did good. I paid $23,000 in October but mine came with 51,000 miles & a factory bumper to bumper warranty up to 100,000 miles & 24 inch giovanna's on it.

You may want to check it out. I don't think White diamond was offerd on the 02's only Alpine White. It may have been repainted. I could be wrong....I know it wasent offered when I bought my first escalade Brand New (2002 alpine white)

Bad news guys. Last night I was told that the finances weren't going to allow me to take it. I had the money ready to go, and my father was going to pay the tax on it for me. Last night he told me he couldn't because he needed to pay for bills which were related to my grandmother who has just gone into a nursing home. :( Bummer but if Grammy needs the money for her health then that comes first. Oh well. Bright side is they said if I wait a few months they'll help me buy a newer one. :)
