    Re: Looking to buy a STS-V

    I bought one today, the 07 in PA, got a great deal on it and it is in GREAT condition, what a BLAST to drive. it has 115k on it and has no mods, has a few small things wrong I can fix, the V emblem is faded in the back, the caddie emblem on the grill is chipped and a tire sensor acts up after a hour or two of driving. The title should be here later this week, so after the holiday weekend it'll be on the road "legally". Thanks everyone for input on these cars, can't wait to play with it, the rear has Pirelli's and the fronts I think are contenentals? looking for rims and or tires.

    I'm the same way man, my first Caddy, let alone a performance car. You'll get more gawkers from the 50+ crowd; kids don't know what it is.

    Hey all, I'm a new STS-V owner as well , 24 days and still feel like a little kid on Christmas morning. Got her in Columbus, Oh. An 07 with 82,000 mi. Black raven, out, ebony int. all Stock. This needs fixed... I have questions, I've read , and read and still don't have good clarity on what should be modded and what should not.some say cold air intake, others say factory is best, I don't want to do anything drastic as I want to keep the car dependable. I'm thinking new cat back exhaust is a must to let it breathe, but what about the intake?thanks for any and all input.

    Congrats to the new owners! I had to put a new roof over my head so it looks like I won't be getting one this year. What did the new owners pay for their rides so I can budget?

    Thanks on the welcome guys. Keep in mind this is my first Cadillac,and first 300+Horsepower car. I was looking at CTS's and a STS's and my budget was around $12,000 , but stumbled on a STS-V for $14000, but had a rebuilt title, and couldn't get financing, by that time, I had to have one. $19000, later , My "Annette" a 469+ horsepower Beast that I plan taking care of.

    Hope you manage to keep your car through the winter.

    It's not my driving that I worry about, its all the others out there.

    Even on a rainy day, VA I95 is scary (and the reason I won't get a bike). Both emergency lanes on the left and right get used frequently because of the idiots on their phones or who are following too close can't stop in time and on a clear stretch you can see a dozen cars dive for the emergency shoulder everytime traffic comes to a stop.

    Before the V, I had a Saturn Sky. I quit driving it on bad weather days after a lady in the Suburban behind me (on the phone of course) wound up next to me on a rainy day TWICE, and I was in the leftmost lane! I started driving the Escalade after that anytime we had rain or snow. It cost me an extra $10 a day to commute with it but I'd much rather get hit in that (by a Suburban or anything else) than in the Sky.

    And in the snow, forget about it. Probably 9 out of the 10 vehicles you see spun out or flipped over along the interstate on my 50 mile one way commute are SUVs like Escalades, Range Rovers, Grand Cherokees, etc. I've hardly ever seen a passenger car in the ditch, it was always 4wd/awd SUVs.

    Then you're driving the wrong SUV. Look at something you love and it won't be a bad relationship.

    I love my Escalade but if I didn't have that I'd probably have a BMW X5 with the 4.8 or A Porsche Cayenne. I drive 100 miles a day round trip to commute and I tried the econo-box route which lasted all of six months (absolutely hated that car). Now I drive vehicles I love all the time and the 2hrs on the road a day doesn't bug me one bit. After almost 5 years of this commute I'm still perfectly content living as far away from the city as I do.

    Didn't want to drive a RWD car in the snow no matter what the tires. You either drive on clear days with snow tires on so many times when you don't need them or you get caught with your summer tires in the snow by one of those pop-up storms. No thanks. Then there's always the getting hit by someone else. No matter how good/safe your driving is, it only takes one idiot out there to ruin your day, week, month, etc.

    I don't want to deal with fighting an insurance company on a vehicle that isn't easy to replace. My Escalade is a dime a dozen out there on the used market, the V not-so-much on the availability and ease of replacing it should someone else ruin my day.

    Besides, it's a good excuse to have more vehicles. I'm at 5 in my driveway and I'm a single guy! LOL!

    You don't even need to have the V series STS for people to think that... :-/

    Yep especially the 08+.

    ----------

    People will ask me what the car is. I tell them sts-v. They look a little perplexed and then they say "cts-v?" or "you mean cts-v?" When I give a damn I explain why mine is better.
