Airbag light on, and pay attention to the automatic transmission. Make sure it shifts correctly and through all the gears. I believe this year was involved in an airbag system recall. Let your local Cadillac Dealer check for you. They can do this using the vehicle identification number (VIN). HTH. -Jim

With 173K miles, I hope that you're getting a "steal" on the price. With a gasoline burning engine, that's a lot of miles to be considered as reliable transportation. As js08016 suggested, ensure that the transmission is sound.

Honestly, no. With 173,000 miles on it it's near the end of it's life in my opinion. Unless, as JC Cadillac said, you're getting it very cheap I wouldn't buy it. HTH. -Jim

KBB.com is saying around $2000. So it's not terribly priced. HTH. -Jim
