    Congrats on getting your car I hope the 3rd party sees no issues and all goes well.




    I compare the difference of the two cars between an F-16 (CTS-V) and an F-14 (STS-V) Both capable fighters, but one is a little more nimble and lighter, while the other has more room, power, and conviences.

    I recall seeing some threads here about the STS V having a ton more equipment. Considering the fact that dealers are dumping new STS Vs (price-wise), I would love to have one with an auction price. That is if the auction does not bring crazy money. Some of the bidders from overseas really jack the prices up.

    Check to see if the warranty is not blocked. If it is not, grab the car.

    How'd the inspection go, got the car in the garage ?

    No, the transaction fell through. My lender would not finance the car since it was a manufacturer buyback. So if any of you are in the market, you should be able to get a pretty good deal on a 2007 STS-V with 14K miles at Ernie von Schledorn GM Superstore in Saukville, WI.

    They have it listed at $44,999 but I talked them down to $43,500. I'm sure they would go even lower, especially given the vehicle's history as a buyback. But you either have to be paying with cash, or using a lender that will finance a buyback vehicle.

    Well sorry to hear dude. But keep an eye out, deals like that are around that are not buybacks.

    I just bought my car at a gm auction. It took 3 weeks to get one because no one wanted to sell them at a resonable price. Even when I was the high bidder, the owner wouldn't sell.

    I'm sure this will get some interesting responses here, but when the STS-V deal fell through I went to plan B and bought a Dodge Magnum SRT8 instead. This is actually more practical for me since I have two big dogs (Rotweiller and German Shepard), and it was always a major pain when I had to transport them in my CTS-V. My top 3 choices to replace the CTS-V were the STS-V, Magnum SRT8, and Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8. Obviously the latter two both give me the utility that I need with more cargo volume, but still the STS-V was high on my list based soley on my satisfaction with the past 3 years in the CTS-V. I drove all 3 cars and really liked them all, so I am happy with my choice. Any one of them would have been good - but the STS-V definitely would have been a bit more of a challenge with my dogs.

    Yeah I would have to agree, transporting large dogs in an STS-V might not be the best thing.
