    Sold my STS

    Thanks to all the great members here, you've been a great help to me during my STS ownership. Unfortunately, and rather surprisingly, it came to an end Saturday. Due to a growing family, I traded it in for an Acadia. The deal was too good to pass up, but now I get to enjoy my other rather rare vehicle, an '08 Grand Cherokee diesel.
    I wish I could have sold it private party, but the deal was too good to pass up and you know the saying, "Happy wife, happy life".
    For those of you that might be interested, there is a 2009 STS 1SG with the performance handling and braking package available at Larry H. Miller Dodge in Sandy, UT. It has 90k miles and is still under CPO warranty until May or 100k miles. It is the Thuder Gray Chromaflair color, RWD, new tires and battery, oil just changed and if I remember correctly, one of only 39 made with the V8 and PHP in 2009. The dealership is into it about 15k, so you can probably get a good deal, they don't expect much interest in it and will likely just send it to auction in about a month.
    Maybe in a few years I'll get back in a Cadillac (I've got my eye on the CTS V-Sport). Thanks again.

    Good luck to you.

    Wow, a Grand Cherokee diesel? That is rare, I've never heard of one. I believe Jeep is releasing a diesel GC for 2014, might look at one of those to replace my Escalade at some point in the future.

    Or you can look at an escalade to replace your escalade.

    The diesel Jeep GC will get better MPG than any V8 GM can put in the new Escalade...But, those rolling around in an Escalade shouldn't be too concerned about fuel mileage anyway

    Oh yeah the diesel will crush the escalade in fuel economy. I'm starting to "get" diesels more and more BUT no matter how much people try to kid themselves, the diesel clatter is still there. Not a refined sound at all. Also high end power is non existent. And the GC is starting to get more and more respect as a vehicle but the escalade has it. I'm loving that jeep grand Cherokee Srt

    It's not just about the fuel economy, it's the torque.

    I do enjoy my Escalade, but eventually when I get a travel trailer to pull around I might not like it so much anymore. One of my co-workers bought a Silverado 2500 6.0L truck and got rid of it a year later for a diesel Silverado when he got a toy hauler. His 6.0L as I assume mine won't like the mountains when several thousand pounds is tied to the back.

    Now if GM would put a diesel in the Escalade then I might think about one of those as a replacement.

    I realize it isn't GM that is doing it...

    Those certainly show that there are people that want to see the escalade in diesel.
