what should i look for with a high mileage STS....
i heard there is something you can do from inside the car with the car's computer to check all the systems out.. does anyone have the instructions for doing that so when i go look at the car i can check the system?


thanx in advance... and can't wait to be a regular(daily) on this forum....

Welcome aboard, Dave! Thanks for signing up! I'm moving this into our Eldorado/Seville section. Actually, if you're reading this thread - you're there now. You were automatically redirected... It'll get more attention from the STS crowd in the Seville area...

180 K? Might turn out to be more trouble than it's worth! Unless it was very meticulously maintained and had all the necessary improvements done ( Timeserts, Case half leak, and so on...) That's a LOT of miles! I'd offer the guy $3,000 or so and be prepared to walk away if he won't take less than $4,000.

Also, Be prepared to spend some money on the thing. If you aren't, You'll be unhappy with the car!

No more than 3,000, and have him do a carfax. Also ask for maintenance records. If he doesnt have maintenance records and wont give you a carfax and/or it doesnt look good, walk away. There are many more cadillacs with lower mileage for not much more. You could probably get one for about 6000 with around 100k.
