Why are you considering a Cadillac at age 19? It's not the money issue that concerns me, but the lack of driving experience. I would suggest putting on a couple of hundred thousand miles on a mich cheaper & smaller automobile. New drivers make mistakes. It takes a while to have gone through lots of complex situations before you should tackle a large automobile.
I have owned over 57 cars in my life, so far, and feel that I probably have gone though just about every potential crrisis situation. Trust me - it's worth the wait, You will appreciate the Cadillac more later on.

I had a 1970 Escalade, ran like a dream but of course you don't get high mileage. Low in fact. The only problem I had was a pinhole leak in the a/c pipe going to the rear of the car. If kept running out of freon. Finally, I had the hole plugged and it worked great after that. I had a Cadillac Deville before that and it had 177,000 on it when I sold it and it ran like a dream too. Guess I've been lucky.
It was not my first vehicle either, it was about my fifth and after drivng a Caddy you're spoiled. I replaced it with a 2007 fully loaded Escalade with 22" wheels and all the bell and whistles. I found it on a Ford dealer lot, someone had just traded it it (due to a divorce, I spoke personnaly to the guy and got the whole story). It had 6,000 miles on it and I paid 53K. New it would have been well over $75K with all the exras. My cousin sells them, and I didn't buy it from him. He quoted me $56 for one without any extras.
Hope this helps. Have fun and drive safe. By the way, it's had to see backing up if you don't have the back up camera so pay atttention to that, Pat

What state are you in, here in Atlanta Cadillac has it's own seperate dealership. Pontiac, GMC, and Buick are all sold on the same lots though.

With gas at 3.59 gallon, what kind of neg. will I have? I will pay cash and have a 2002 trade-in. I went to Car-Max and they only offered $10,500 for it! Boo!

Ok. I think I will have everyone in this forum beat on this one. Last month (May, 2008), I purchased a brand new 2007 Cadillac Escalade with 80 miles from Reynold's Cadillac in Orange, VA. The car has absolutely every available option including:
Information Package (Navigation)
Rear Entertainment Package (DVD)
22" Chrome Wheels
Power Release 2nd Row Seats
Rearview Camera System
Retractable Running Boards
Premium Paint *White Diamond*
I paid $52,296 and this included tax, tags, and Gap Insurance.

Anyone have access to the Smart auction? If so what are low mileaged 08' Escalades going for? I'm looking at a $66K sticker 08' with 3800 miles. Asking $46K. I would sure like to know what the GMAC Smart auction is asking for a similar vehicle.
