#11 of 379 Leased my CTS in Early June 2002
Oct 29, 2003 (4:11 pm)
Originally I had an order placed with a local dealer, but that CTS just wasn't getting made due to an lack of xenon headlights at the time. I needed a vehicle soon, and decided to "settle" for one without the xenon headlights (i.e. buy off the lot).
Every single Cadillac dealer at the time wanted MSRP for the CTS. Fortunatly, my father knew a Cadillac dealer in a nearby state, and he offered us $3,000 off any Caddy. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that he would honor the deal for the CTS as well, so I got mine $3,000 off MSRP (plus another ~$3,700 if you count GM card points which my Dad had been accumulating ever since he came to this country). It was a hell of a deal at the time, given how short CTS's were in supply.
MSRP (undiscounted) was about $37,500 for my CTS.

Just came from the Cadillac dealer and the offer was "GM Supplier Price", less $1,500 foreign car owner, less $1,500 GM Card (where GM added $1,000 to the card credit). The bottom line is $32,400 MSRP down to $26,500 plus tax. This is a model with just the $1,700 auto trans package. I think it is a good deal.

#14 of 379 $300 over invoice before rebate

My base price was $300 over invoice before $1500 rebate and $1800 GM card discount.
I was very pleased with the deal and my Dealer (covert Cadillac in Austin, TX) was very easy to do business with.

#16 of 379 What is a good price for an '04 1SC?
Dec 22, 2003 (12:13 pm)
It would be helpful for me to hear some of your prices/buying experiences based on the equipment. I'm interested in an '04 with 1SC (lux sports pkg) probably w/o the nav. Anyone order the same package?
#17 of 379 How about buying experience?
Dec 22, 2003 (3:54 pm)
GM has been working hard to bring Cadillac sales people up to speed with the new product which is far different from the large and heavy FWD Cadillacs.
Is the effort paying off? Did the sales people push performance and handling to the buyers?
Do the younger buyers feel the sales people were able to communicate to them effectively?
#18 of 379 shopping for CTS
Jan 25, 2004 (8:47 am)
Stopped into my local caddy dealer to play the win a GM car game. Priced a '04 CTS in Silver, no NAV, luxsport option, sunroof, Bose , for $36,295. I didn't even attempt to negotiate, still in the 'tire kicking' stage. They took $2k off the listed MSRP of $38k on their own. I'd like to get it at about $34k.
Anyone buy one in this range?
Jan 25, 2004 (9:30 am)
I paid 33K for my 42K CTS one year ago . The fully loaded car had 7K miles on it (GM car). The buying experience was great, very professional . The service department .... thats a different story there are mostly very incompetent employees there
#20 of 379 wwhite2 - GM car?
Jan 25, 2004 (8:53 pm)
How does one go about getting a GM car?
i assume these are cars driven by employees, or loaners to events like golf competitions.
