About to purchase an 05 with 10,000 miles for an amazing price and need to check the service record. price seemes to good to be true.
Carfax shows it being service about 3 times in a 200-300 mile span.
Thanks!!

I see by your previous post that people have run VIN checks before for you. I think Tony will agree that you need to be a supporting member before we do any more favors. Just another benefit of being a supporting member. And just as a teaser:stirpot:...this car has had roadside service at least 4 times...

It might be a buy back under the lemon law or Cadillac might have bought it back before it went that far to keep that off the title. Could explain the low price

Have 'em throw in the 100k warranty and give 'em $31k.

Then, come back here, and we'll help you mod the heck out of it. :highfive:

As I said before, I do not see any line items that indicate a big problem. The roadside entries, for example, are a matter of happenstance, that is the problem apparently occurred at an inconvenient time or with not enough warning to get to the dealer. (Or the owner is oblivious to warnings, who knows?). By whom is vehicle being "certified" e.g. a Cadillac Dealer, other major dealer, or just some used car lot?

the VIN check would show it as a buyback if it were.
seems to be fairly typical warranty issues. still has orig. radiator and diff. listen for whine and check coolant level/smell under the front for coolant smell.
i'd second the idea to offer 31K for this IF they throw in the extended warranty.

and thanks for your support :)
