#206 of 379 Where to buy your CTS
Nov 30, 2007 (2:02 pm)
I recently bought a 2008 CTS last week at Baker Caddilac in Leominister Ma. It was a great buying experience. It's what I remember the way car dealers used to be.It wasn't a brandnew flashy dealer where they let you sit and wait while they talk to the "manager". You sit down with your sales person and the manager and work out the deal. My final bottom line beat the other dealer I had seen by a good bit. The whole thing took about 1/2 hour. The papers were written up and signed and they didn't even take a deposit("why would we take a deposit to just give it back if you didn't want the car"). Picked up the car the next day with a thorough explanation of it's workings from my salesperson,Jason. So if you live anywhere Leominister Ma. Give Baker Cadillac a try. Tell them Len Broverman sent you. By the way, I love my car.

Has anyone heard of an upcoming lease buyout promotion for the CTS? I am loving my 06, but thinking of trading up...

Could you share your buying experience with the rest of us to include
OPTION packages included on your car. Listing them by dealer code would be nice for all of us
Listed sticker price
Actual price paid before any trade-in was deducted (if indeed you had a trade-in vehicle)
In other words the reason for this message board is to give all of us an idea of what bottom line price dealers are willing to sell the new CST Caddie. So please share your pricing with all of us. I am thinking of buying one of these terrific Caddies and would like to know if dealers are wiling to discount them at all and by how much.
A few years ago, I think 2001 or 2002 a dealer here in Maryland was selling the DeVille for $600 under invoice, which at the time was an excellent price. It is my impression that Caddie dealers price or discount their cars according to the perceived affluence in the area of their location. Dealers in rural areas perhaps give higher discounts since they need to draw customers from the city which might require going 25 miles or more to get to the rural dealer. Dealers in the city have a larger number of customers at their door step.
I like to buy from a dealer which is in an area where there are 3 or more dealers for the same car. Competition always bring on lower pricing.

CTS is a hot car at the moment....unless you have a GM affiliation....you will probably not get the car for much under MSRP....the best deal I have seen..as I have been shopping around is for a DI, with prem lux package, Y42 performance, prem paint, and P63 wheels.....46740 MSRP....best price I have seen in MD is 43,900 plus tax.....but you would have to order the car.....I have found the same deal in Northern VA as well..but again would have to order the car...Frankel is the dealership in MD (Ownings Mills)....
#210 of 379 Supplier discount + luxury conquest
Dec 10, 2007 (2:21 pm)
I'm working on a new car and have GM Supplier discount. My dealer is telling me that no other discounts can be used in conjunction with it. Is this true? I was hoping to get the luxury conquest as well.
#211 of 379 December 2007 GMAC lease rates for CTS
Dec 10, 2007 (7:16 pm)
My dealer just informed me that the GMAC lease rate for the 08 CTS is currently 7.1%, a new rate for December. That seems just outrageous and I am looking for any confirmation.

I was quoted 6.35% and thought that was ridiculous. I am not comfortable paying over 6% for money. Somebody probably has the real numbers out there.
BTW, is there $500 cash back available for Supplier Discount? I thought I saw that on the GM website.

tr3a -- Were you quoted that rate recently? I heard numbers changed in the beginning of December.

I was quoted 6.35% on Thursday, Dec 6th. I heard the real number is less than 6.35%, but I don't know for sure. Dealers have the latitude to move the rate up to add some cushion to their profit. I don't think the number is too much lower than 6.35%.

tr3A -- what state are you in? I am wondering if there are regional differences? I am in Florida.
