Platinum ESV

Ok so I have an 08 EXT, completely paid for with the lux package. Paid $67k for it. About a month or 2 ago i started thinking about trading it in for a 2010 ESV. I went to my Cadillac dealer for an oil change and saw an '09 Platinum ESV in the showroom. Now I'm thinking about getting the Platinum Edition. I know on the Cadillac website I believe the "Build Your Cadillac" the price was $87k since all the interior and exterior is basically standard, plus a $2,000 cash back so it is $85k. I know how GM is right now, would the give you a little bit better deal? Also is this right, it has 2 headrest tv's and 2 flip down tv's? I love that!

So could they give me a little bit of a better deal guys?

Yes 2 flip downs, and 2 in the headrests. And yes they are cool, we have 4 kid and it's great to have 3 different shows goin at once.
hey ray i have an 08 ESV and was also been looking for the platinum :)

But yes you will NOT have to pay the $85K for sure. They know that price is ridiculous, and will work with you. Based on the discounts ppl on the forums are getting, and what GM is facing, im guessing (dont quote me) that you can get them down to $71K for a platinum 09. Some dealers aroun me are even offering to pay the Sales Tax, which for a $70K vehicle is about 6 grand. But be careful, they WILL hit you hard on the trade in for your EXT..think mid $40s. IF you can take a $20k hit, then go for it. As for me, I dont want to pay $20k for driving my '08 for only a year, so i decided to wait a while because the longer you drive your car, the less of a hit you take.

In the end its your choice...I think it will be cheaper to just get some headrest TVs (approx $1500), LED headlights (approx $1500) and a platinum grille (approx 2K) and you have the platinum look for a lot less. Check out lactruck's thread...its exactly what he did for a total of 6 Grand.

There is a 9660 dollar difference between a loaded 09' and an 09' platinum, the no front tow hooks and lack of the interior color I want made the platinum a no go for me.
