Hi,

I found a V wagon that I am interested in but was wondering if anyone could check if the warranty was voided by Cadillac for some reason, for example if the previous owner modified it and then returned it back to stock upon selling it.

VIN: 1G6DV8EP8B0144618

Thank you very much!

Thank you so much! I am so excited I found one, just like the one I would have ordered/waited for if I had known they'd make a V wagon. (Still grumbling inside that my salesman said "there is no confirmation that a V wagon will be made.")

Looks like this V Wagon didn't have much go wrong with it either. No real warranty repairs. This car is in Texas from the service records I was able to pull up. Is this a certified pre-owned vehicle at a Cadillac dealer? What is it priced at?

Just to be clear though, a VIN check will not show if a car was modified and returned to stock (without the dealer finding out) before trade-in.

Thanks for the concern and advice!

I was able to get a CarFax and AutoCheck. From one of these it noted the supercharger was changed under warranty, but at least no airbag was indicated!

Yes, it is in Texas. Here's the listing:

http://www.texasimportsales.com/web/used/Cadillac-CTS-V-Wagon-2011-Dallas-Texas/1730944/

I noted to them that their asking price of $49,950 was quite high compared to www.kbb.com, and the best he said was $49,450 since I would most likely be getting it shipped. It is not certified but it is some kind of dealership.

(My wife purchased a used 328i and we found out later that only AutoCheck listed Unibody damage. I felt so bad about only checking the CarFax!) This one does look pretty clean and unadulterated.

I have been searching for a wagon lately. First a Magnum SRT8, then a 2004 - 2006 E500, and then a new E63 (too expensive,) and then back to a V. I guess it is kind of the mean of those prices.

My service advisor said that around $50k is the going rate for the Vs now, and there is another one in Texas as well that is going for $52,9xx, so maybe this is alright...

If it was modified and put back to stock, at least I would still have some warranty left on the powertrain, although with low usage any harm might not be found until after.

I did find a CarChex service that sends an ASE certified technician out to do an inspection, which is better than me, (non certified/non technician.) They charged me a little over $200 and I will wait for the inspection report.

Well, I might miss my son too much, to be honest, but definitely sounds fun! If things go through I guess I'll see how much shipping is first, before I decide.

----------

Oops. It wasn't from CarFax or AutoCheck that I saw the supercharger replacement, it was form GM-4-LIFE's post about the vehicle history! Sorry about that!!!!

They can be rotated from side to side. Hopefully that's what they did. Although I've seen non-V coupes, which had staggered tires, rotated from front to back LOL. On the Vs the rear wheels can't go on the front at all without a spacer, right?

Well, even though the manual, and other manufacturers as well, state not to, I've rotated left to right/right to left, as long as they aren't unidirectional. Does help prolong the life some.

There is a new Autotrader listing in Pheonix by a private seller that is almost the same price, but I already have a deposit of $500, (supposedly refundable,) and the carchex order for this one. (Hoping I'm alright sticking with this one....)

I don't think they say not to rotate from side to side with radials any more. That was a thing that was done in the past but now some trucks and things with full size spares suggest a rotation pattern that puts the spare in rotation and also moves the tires around in kind of an X pattern.

Also includes a side to side

Drive It Home.

I did. I drove 1200 smiles to get my car home, and it was one of the best rides of my life.

Oh dear, found this one from a private seller for approximately the same price. One year newer and a third less miles:

GM-4-LIFE, if it isn't trouble could you please run this VIN: 1G6DV8EP2C0152764

Thanks so much again!

Checked CarChex status tonight. It says that the inspection was rescheduled. The contact at the dealer said the car will not be ready until Friday, and the inspector is not available Friday. New scheduled inspection date is 5/4! What!!! Why would it take two more days for it to be available for inspection. (Getting kind of worried, as I was told that I needed to put a deposit for it to have a 3rd party inspection. Was also told, before I gave my credit card information, that the only reason was so that they don't sell it and the inspector finds the car gone. After I gave my card information I was told "congratulations" and that they will notate the car as "sold".)

I was also told to let them know beforehand when the inspector would come, ie. for the inspector to make an appointment to see the car ahead of time. Reading on the carchex site the inspector is supposed to make an appointment to see the car, to make sure the car is not sold already, so I'm not sure what happened here.....

Probably should try to get my $500 deposit back tomorrow morning?

Maybe get your deposit back and keep looking. There has to be other V Wagons out there. I know there are new ones still sitting on dealer lots.

Agreed. I saw one not too far away from here, although black is hot in the hot sun. (A little out of my budget range at the moment though....)

I live in Florida. I would not hesitate for a New York second to get another black car.
