I have a base Vsport myself. I may be in a market for another CTS for my fiance, but I'd really like to check the used value before deciding between V sport premium vs. 3.6 premium. Here's the model breakdown:How many doors? How many cylinders? How many driven wheels? The CTS variations list is rather large and I really don't want to research them all.
I have the exact same car...with 15k miles. This is depressing. Were you trying to out right sell it to the dealership or as part of a trade in for another car? That would make a difference in value.Had mine appraised by three dealers today the highest number was 35K. Nobody wanted to touch it with a ten foot pole. This is fine by me since I really enjoy it. Its a 2014 CTS V-Sport, non premium, 8,400 miles, Black Diamond Tri-Coat. I was blown away, expecting to hear at least 39K to 40K. Such a great car, its so sad what public perception does to a cars value.
Yep, that was the value given even if I purchased a new car from that dealer. The value is so low dealers don't want to touch it, even to sell one of their cars.I have the exact same car...with 15k miles. This is depressing.

100% Correct..... I still love my V-Sport and will be happy to keep it for the remainder of my lease. That being said, I have never had a vehicle that is this good that has taken such a huge hit on depreciation. I have a buddy that works for BMW and he ran my trade by his used car manager. He told me around the same, 35K is a solid number on a used V-Sport. He also offered me the chance to roll 15K of negative equity into a new 7 series purchase LOL (one sinking brick for another sinking brick ) no thanks.Lease
Any car in this class is going to suffer massive immediate depreciationbut I'm telling myself I should look for something else since the depreciation will be worse than the proverbial "rock falling" when I drive out of the dealership (after owning an '03, '08 and '13 CTS)!
