    only if its the CTS-V hah. I'm assuming its just a regular CTS and when you compare the two they are complete opposites. If you want something that's more luxurious and not as fast or loud then go for it. it's really up to what you really want.

    An 09? ok if that was thrown at me i would probly jump all over it just because you could turn around and sell that thing for double or triple what that TA is worth in my opinion.... and buy a nicer TA or Camaro.... and have money to build that thing up abit... i may be wrong about everything but cadi's are not cheap cars....

    I work at a Cadillac dealer and can tell you the 09 CTS is an awesome car. They are very well built and IMO look and drive amazing. You looking at the Direct Injection V6 or the regular V6?

    I'd just buy a cheaper car and use it as your winter car so you can still have the ta for summers.

    You will miss the T/A. But you gotta do whats best for you and your family. Safe reliable car like the AWD cts is a good choice. Just be careful with DI engines, most companys are having problems with theres even more so over the long haul.

    Ya someone had a good point what ate they giving you on trade in? Usually better to.sell it and even lower priced fast sale.will.get you more than.the dealer. I tried.to trade.my 98 in think 07 when these cats were selling high. I had 58k and my.interior is perfect no.worn drivers seat, cracked doors or dash and they offered me $5800. I was trying to get a 05 or 06 Vette. That's when out cars.were selling high, you coulnd get one under $8 or $9k that had less than 90k miles. So make sire your getting a fair trade or post here and Craigslist even.if.you sell.under.what it's worth as long as you get more than the dealer was giving you and.you get to know there not.going.to make a killing reselling your car after giving you nothing for.it.

    Its ture, its hard to find a dealer willing to pay good money. My 2000 T/A had a 61k when i traded it in, i got offers from 5500-8000 then i finally found a auto warehouse that gave me 11000 for it. But normally its better to sell a car then to trade it in. But then you have to wait for it to sell.
