I'm an experienced car buyer but need to know what the price structure is for buying a new 2010 or 2011 Cadillac CTS AWD,3.6 auto,sedan at an "aggressive price point". Trying to get past the lot lizard level,etc., and so far found out little in web search for just what it takes, other than used cars already on the web with an asking price. KBB gives the MSRP price optioned out,an invoice price and a fair price just below invoice. E.g., for the 2010 car the way I want it is: MSRP=$49,040;Invoice=$46,079;Fair Price=$45,705. I have no trade and no financing invloved-straight purchase.I already know the web spots to find used ones and have priced a bunch to date. FWIW, I am using : www.cargurus.com(it searches lots/most of other websites-even gives you the number of days the car has been on the mkt. and much more);Traderonline & craigslist.
I am looking within a 2 day radius of KY if need be, but one day is best for a fly & drive. In the past on, Toyota, I have just sent out an email to every dealer I was willing to travel to and bought the best deal. With Toyota I knew how they were sold vs. so called invoice-Cadillac I'm trying to find out. THANKS!
Added: If you drive this car with a 3.0 or 3.6 engine & have comments on the "timing chain"(reminds me of the FD threads!!!) or other helpful comments, please share your thoughts.
