2016 XTS Premium
Just browsed a 2010 DI CTS at my local dealer - $40K base price with a few minor options included. With a sunroof, auto, and floor mats added - its over $43K.
Yeah...when I ordered my '08 CTS back in Sep '07...before the wildy-successful Kate Walsh TV commercials and Motor Trend Car of the Year Award...the base 3.6L DI with Auto Transmission was only $34,545 MSRP plus $745 Destination Charge.Just browsed a 2010 DI CTS at my local dealer - $40K base price with a few minor options included.

:yup:It's a Cadillac. luxury cars are expensive.
Wait until there are purchase or lease incentives to get one.
But before you do go to a BMW dealer and price a 3 series or 5 series.
If you think you have sticker shock with the CTS a BMW sticker will certainly give you a heart attack.
cafpaf, great post. An excellent example of why I continue coming back to this forum.I had to chuckle at MoFex's comment, "If you are lucky enough to get one free of problems, it definitely is a steal." While I agree, I thought that I would add my two cents. I have a 2008 purchased new in June of 2008. I has has some minor issues. All of which have been addressed and it is a car that I just LOVE. However, I consider myself a Senior guy, or some would say an "Old Fart" and thus feel compelled to share an opinion based on extensive experience. That is that EVERY car has some sort of issue and I mean EVERY CAR regardless of manufacture. I could be a Kia, Cadillac, or Rolls Royce. It can be made and assembled entirely by hand or by machine. It makes no difference. Some problems surface right away and some take some time to rear their ugly heads. It is just that the more we pay, the more irritating these generally small problems seem. While perfection is a noble goal, the reality of the situation is that ANY product made up of thousands of pieces and interfaces will have some problem. To expect the PERFECT automobile regardless of brand or cost is to flaunt reality.
