    Brand new (to me!) baby!

    If you want proof that God smiles on fools and drunks, take a look at the photos! I found a 2004 Cadillac Seville from a mom and pop dealer in Wichita, Kansas. Miles? 63,000! I ran a Carfax on it. 2 owners, never wrecked, no major shop-time. I took it to "the" Caddy mechanic in town and he put it up on the rack and said it was the cleanest Caddy he's found in years. In fact, he said he looked for more than a year to find one as nice as this one for a customer. That guy paid more than $11,500.
    My price? $7,950. I swear to God I'm not bragging, I'm just overjoyed! I still own my 2003 Seville with 132,000 miles and never thought I would ever find or be able to afford one as nice as this!
    Anyway, after letting the kids sit (gently) in the rear, I took photos so I could share them with you all.

    Congrats, it's nice. But...

    Carfax is only as good as the previous entries submitted by dealerships/shops etc

    I'll post pics of my '03 tomorrow or Sunday. I've got to get it cleaned up to put it up for sale.
    Vincentm, that's why I took it to a Caddy mechanic. At some point, I've got to run on faith. :-)

    Here's the pics of my "old" Caddy. I don't want to post anything that's against the rules, but I'm selling it. I hope I get some bites from my CL post!

    Even in Excellent condition, with a sunroof and Bose multiple CD options the OP's car (suggested) retails from a dealer at $4625. Washington, DC (high dollar) sales area.

    If you were talked into an "Extended warranty" then it's still about $5200.

    Nice ride.

    I could be mistaken, bur weren't all '04 Sevilles originally rental fleet units?
    I don't think they were available for retail sale at dealerships.
    Again, could be wrong, and even if so, that fact doesn't detract from the fact that you found a nice one.

    No. Where'd you hear that?

    The STS was no longer available in '04 for the America mnarket,

    Right, not available to retail customers, but there were a bunch of '04 Sevilles sold new to rental fleets. Avis, Hertz, etc.
    I know because I managed one of GM's large auctions and sold quite a few of them in late '04 and early '05 coming out of rental service.

    Re: Brand new (to me!) baby!

    I know that the stuff I read said that for '04, Cadillac only sold the SLS in that style. I pulled the Carfax on it and showed one owner from 2004 to 2010 and it wasn't a dealer. What options would have included the wood steering wheel and shifter?

    Re: Brand new (to me!) baby!

    I would bet the OPs car is an x-rental unit.

    ----------

    Yep, no STS, and again, I'm pretty sure they were only sold new to the rental companies in the states.
