Cadillac STS
« on: 17 April 2012, 14:16:26 »

Does anyone know anything about them :-\

Seriously considering a 2009 one as a second car, 1 owner 20k, all working as it should, drives nice with plenty of grunt. Looks the mutts' dangly bits in dark grey.  It's the 3.6 V6 with a 6 speed slushbox, rather than the Northstar V8, or the LS3 :'(, still has 300bhp though so no slouch  8).

It'll be a bit of an impulse buy, but I don't think that I've ever seen one on the road. I know that they're not to everyones taste, but then neither are white Omegas  ::)

Got a VW, Audi, Skoda or Seat? I have full Diagnostic software VCDS to read and program your car. Need something enabling? Perhaps full diagnostic? Drop me a PM. Can diagnose in Camberley or Osterley Area.

 ::) the clue would be in the avatar...

Not sure about the dash in the CTS :-\ STS is the same shape, just a foot longer with a smidge more space in the back. Does seem to suffer from the Omegas' Bose-shelf-takes-up-half-the-boot issue ::)

2.8 CTS are almost sensible money second hand, CTS V is 70k new :o

The v is left hand drive only. 40k used. Only 1 in the country, if the advertiser is to be believed.

For 13.5k the 3.6 is a compromise I can live with :y

As much as we all love GM vehicles, for 13,500 you can just buy a 2005+ Maserati Quattroporte with a 4.2 V8 Ferrari engine.
The STS is one of those imposing vehicles though, similiar to a 300C. How about a 5.7 or 6.1 Hemi 300C?
I have driven an STS on a 400 mile trip, and I thought it was a very competent vehicle.
