    FOUND an amazing STS-V BUT I have concerns!! Please Help!!

    I'm new to this community and Im looking forward to becoming an STSV owner soon. Ive been patient and recently found an unmodified 06 w/38k miles for $25,000. Sounds like a great deal right?

    My concern is that it's had 4 previous owners in 6 years and its no longer under warranty. Am I being paranoid

    i wouldnt be suprised about year and mileage. mine was an 06 with 45 and it was 21. also, the headlights are nothing just picky owner (id be ahppy personally) and cat is a normal maintence issue as youll see when you read more. realistically speaking, i wouldnt be to concerned. and about the mileage being turned back, the car fax will have mileage on it, so you can easily compare the two. you cant fake that one.

    Yea just check the car fax for the miles and stuff but thats a good deal if its a private seller i would take it to cadillac dealer and tell them do a 27 point check to make sure mechanically every thing looks ok the engine & tranny i brought mines salvaged but it was repaired no frame damage ,no air bag deployment it was all front end stuff it didnt even hit the engine i took it to cadillac they said it was good and so far no problems i got mine for $16,000 with 35,000k it was a steal for a $80k car. Or u can bring your own mechanic to check it out.25,000 is alot of cash make sure its not a lemon get it check correctly it will give you piece of mind

    I guess its just the number of previous owners that's got me concerned.

    Most guys that bought these were for garage queens and weekend drivers, not daily drivers. That would not concern me as long as the carfax is clean.

    Forget the Carfax. Not everything gets reported to it. Go pay$100 and get a ppi done to it. If the car seems fishy to you then pass on it.

    There are lots of reasons why people buy and sell cars. Have it checked out and don't look back. This is a great ride for $25K.

    @PGA2B - very good point. I've spoken with the owner quite a bit and I feel good about the car. Either way I'm looking forward to becoming a new STS-V owner.

    @CQQL_STS-V - I'm located in So. Cal but id consider the right car V anywhere in the country. It's only a coincidence that the car I'm speaking of is 5 min from my house.

    As PGA2B mentions, a lot are in the garage more than on the road. I know that my 08 sees the inside of the garage more than the road due to my job and weather. She's an 08 with 9700 miles. I know that she is glad to have the Cobra replica sitting right abover her while she's there.
