Depends on it's overall condition. I know someone that would LOVE to pick that bad boy up on those looks alone. But for 19k? ....not so sure.

For $19K... basically what U are getting is a CTS with a Corvette LS2 Engine (400HP) and the better looks of the V. The Car probably went for about $50K new 4 years ago. Me personally??? I would certainly try and haggle that price down at least another 10%.. because.. well it's expected. If U are successful in getting it down to $17K.. then U got a car that most would have killed for a coupla years ago.

Also keep in mind that the LS engine is one of the most modify-friendly engines in the world.. and damn near bullet-proof. With a few mods U could have that 556HP that I have in my new one.. for only about $1500. That's less than what U may get knocked off the price.

Check tires... smell oil/tranny fluid... see about extended warranty (It is a Cadillac.. so it will have electronic goodies that U don't want to pay for if problems occur)

My advice: BUY IT... at $18K-17K

The 1st gen. CTS-Vs had electrical problems, but they might've fixed them for the '05 model year. I've seen a few of those myself on Autotrader...very tempting.

Well with prices the way they are I'll wait till I pay off my car next year so I'm better financially.
