My father in law has one and it is comfortable AF. It's for the wife and she likes it, so that's the way it is.

wouldn't you rather have a cpo on a cadillac?  ya cmax has a warranty but it's not the same

It has <10,000 miles on it. Guess I'm just not that concerned about a warranty. The factory power train warranty is still valid.

not concerned about a warranty on a used car??  you should be.
the car has <10k miles on it now.  that's not the point. you should be worried about when it has 50k+ miles on it. 

like cadillac says about their cpo warranty- you're not buying the cars past, you're buying its future

but as you pointed out, it looks like cadillac allows for a 6 year/70k mile limited powertrain (the expensive stuff) transferable which covers you from most things except misuse.  you should be fine, but you also have no idea what the previous owner did in that vehicle.

just reading about it, the cpo offers bumper to bumper for 6/70  while the non cpo is powertrain 6/70.
not a huge $$ risk for you, you should be good to go

We really don't plan on keeping this, or any, vehicle for more than 4 years, which will still be within the power train warranty.

Anyways, we didn't end up getting it today, because it was a transfer from stl, and it didn't get here today for some reason. Now mrs kcfd is having second thoughts so we may not end up buying it anyways.

Picked up a 2014 Impala 2LT this weekend. Not bad for under $20K and no luxury label on the auto insurance. Lets see if I enjoy this ride for a good 200K miles. I had 175K on the Ridgeline that I recently totaled.

So the 4wd on my Taco broke last Tgiving 2015.  Dealer wanted 3200 to fix, other shop wanted like 2800.  Decided to wait.  And what do you know it started working again this fall.

My first car was an '84 Honda Accord 4 door. I was 16 and ended up running that thing well over 200K miles. Best car ever.

 So, yeah, congrats Wacks!

I once owned a 93 Honda civic hatch back and I made a dumb choice and drove drunk and ended up racing down vattier and jumped the round about. Car sruvived. I also used to take my prelude out into my mom's field and jump the hill and whip kitties. Prelude survived. What I'm saying is that Honda makes a great product that does more than its designed to. Hating on Honda just shows you know nothing about cars. I've also owned a passport and now drive a civic. Only thing that ever happens is that the drain cap leaks.

I drive a 2003 Toyota Camry XLE with 235k on it.  Still runs great. 

Kid "stole" my 2011 Camry. The '03 is a better car.

i have a friend who just totaled her brand new q7 while driving down ward parkway, got t-boned at an intersection w/ her and her daughter in the vehicle. audi went off the road and into a big brick fence post thing.  everyone was OK! except the car.  so i guess they're pretty safe is the message. 

she replaced it with an audi
