I love this vehicle, I test drove some CTS’s because I loved the look but clearly the CTS-V is another vehicle all together.
My question is on years. The price drops significantly with years. Right now I’ve been looking at 2012-2015. Are there any major upgrades or advantages with going newer? What year were some major changes made?
I have the ability to go to the car auction, however if I buy from a dealership they can offer the 100,000 mile 6 year cadillac bumper-to-bumper warranty. The dealership is asking 5-6k more than the auction but there’s the warranty and I’m able to spend more time with the car before I buy. Does the CTS-V have any known issues I have to look out for?
Finally, if there’s someone looking to sell their Black CTS-V I’m out of Orlando but willing to travel.
Thank you in advance

Welcome to the forum!
The most recent overhaul for the CTS-V came for the 2016 model year, which launched the third generation CTS-V. It’s an all-new vehicle altogether that’s much more modern than the 2012-2015 models, particularly when it comes to in-vehicle technology. It’s also larger and more powerful.
There really are no downsides with going with the 2016-2019 model… with the exception of two items: price and the 8-speed auto transmission.
I would take the warranty over getting it at auction… unless you know how to work on the car and have the time to actually do it.
