Question type: Shopping & Pricing

It's a 2003 Cadillac CTS with 98000 miles on it, sunroof, new rims, installed beat.. Is it worth $6000?

What else should I be asking the owner and what else should I be looking for?

Thanks in advance.

If you are considering this vehicle you should at least ask the owner if the timing belt has been replaced, well as if the transmission, coolant, and rear differential fluids have been replaced. Also the brakes on this particular vehicle, even though they stop well, wear down quickly. Ask the owner if they have been replaced in the past 15000-30000 miles ago. Good luck and happy motoring!!!

I can tell you one thing... that's a heck of a deal. It's priced around 3500 to 4000 less than the value. And it's a great car! Even if it has a stock engine, it can run. I'm tellin you. I have a 2005, it has a 3.6 L VVT engine, and 0-60 in about 5.7.

check if the timing chain and setptine belt has been done, also the spark plugs should be changed at 100.000 km, also if there was any problems with the differential for that is the main problem with the early cts models
