Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012 Discussion, OK, I know its a sore subject.... in Past Cadillac Vehicle Discussion; WHat do you think the depreciation will be for one year on an STS 05?
Like I said, I know ...
I think the depreciation on them will not be as low as on passed GM Models.. I dont expect my STS to hold the value the same way my Imports have but i do expect it to hold its value better then passed models .. The CTS seems 2 be holding pretty well hopfully the STS will also
Expect an initial decline of about 10-15k after the first full year of production. This is pretty much in sync with the industry as a whole, it wont decrease much more than this til after 2 full years at least. To give you an example, 04 CTS-V's with relatively low miles can now be had at numerous dealers for about 36-38k, and had an initial retail of about 50. Thats not to say there are not used STS's out there already. There is a dealer who has a few 05's 1SG AWD/HUD/ACC V8's on the lot already with about 3k miles on them with an asking price of about 57. Considering this is still a hard to find package, and retail is about 63, thats not too bad.
