I understand. Actually I didn't do any driving. I shopped via the internet, found the best deals for the 08 CTS model with options I wanted and then called and negotiated with the dealers up front. It ended up being a choice between 3 different dealers with similar CTS's, 2 in Michigan and 1 in Ohio. After I made the final choice, all paperwork was handled via Fedex by the dealer I agreed to buy from and then I went and drove it back. They even offered to deliver it to me but I didn't want to pay them for that. If you aren't fully satisfied with your purchase I would suggest getting a cheap short term rental, ( yes it still costs you more money), but at least you don't have to make a 1 day decision that you have to live with for many years. Best of luck with whatever you decide to do.
