Hi I'm new to the forum and don't own a Cts V yet but I will eventually. I really only came on to vent but would like some input on what I should do. I have been searching for a CTS V for some time now but to no avail. You see, I am trying to trade a 2009 Chevy Colorado with the RARE 5.3 liter v8 Z71 offroad 4X4 crew cab black leather with 4:10 gears. Either straight across or cash and caddy. I finally found someone right down the street from me who was willing to do some business, but when I went to look at the car, I couldn't believe what I saw. This car was so badly beaten I wanted to slap the owner. There is a deep scratch from the top of the hood down through the center and the whole front bumper looked like it had been scraped against a parking garage wall. On both sides. The front drivers fender is damaged beyond repair due to the scrapes and what looked like what can only be described as a pair of c clamps just clamped on either side of the body line. The doors looked as if they had been rammed with shopping carts several hundred times and the rear fender looked like someone kneed it hard enough to crease it. The passenger side on the other hand looked OK under the dust of not having been washed for over 2 years. Then we drove it. WOW!! This car has A LOT of power. But has an extreme exhaust leak on the drivers side pipe and the owner had no idea. He thought that's just how it sounded. And the interior hadn't been cleaned in at least as long as the outside, if not longer. It has just over 100,000 miles on it and I need to know what to look out for with issues the car might have. Any input would be invaluable. Should I do it?
