    Question Nice to meet you too!!!! :violin:

    Hi Everyone,

    I am a french guy from Montreal, had the chance to drive a CTS4 2009 3.0l for a few months 2 years ago and loved it. Now that I can finally change my Durango since we but my wife a nicer SUV (2009 Suburban LTZ), I am starting to search for my dream Cadillac!

    Hesitations are as follow;

    3.0 vs 3.6, difference, reliability, gas mileage, maintenance...

    Nav system usefull or crappy and better use a 300$ one from Best buy?

    I drive around 50k to 60k kms per year and plan on keeping the car for about 3 years so it will definitly end up passing the 200k line... Any worry on things I should pay close attention to?

    Budget is around 25k$, any major difference between a 2008 and 2010?

    Thanks in advance, even if you could answer only one or two questions!!!

    I believe the 3.0 has noisy injectors (from what I've heard), other than that I can't hink of many issues with either. Keep in mind many of these cars are starting to cross the 100k barrier.

    I don't think there would be much difference between 08s and 10s. I haven't heard of any significant issues with any particular model year, but that's better answered by trolling the CTS forums.

    From what I've heard, a nav from Best Buy would be more well spent cash. It's more easily updateable, more supported as it ages, and typically more accurate.

    Good luck on your search!

    Nice choice on the wife's truck! Suburbans are SWEET, and they will go forever.
