I've been watching that one, too. They also have another 16, non-perf, same miles, lower price.

Go for it, there aren't many out there.

There was one at that dealership a couple weeks ago that was priced well, and my dad called on it, and found out it was a lemon law return. I'm not sure if it's the same one, but just check the carfax. They didn't have a link to a free report on the website, so that was a tip off for us.

I love mine. 2016 is the year to get, and I also have the performance package. In sport mode on a back road, it's a very fun car, and still has a nice ride in tour mode. If you're in a cold weather area, you might want to replace the summer-only tires with all-weather performance tires. If you have a gen-1 Volt, don't be surprised if the ELR beats it for real world EV range, even with the huge, sticky tires.

Adaptive cruise control was an option, I'm guessing ordered on less than half the ELRs out there. If that's important to you, just something for you to look for.

These cars are a ridiculous bargain if you can find one. One of the best Cadillac interiors ever, and overall the luxury and technology of a near-six-figure car.

Did they make any 2015 ELR's? I ask because when I do a search on cars.com the years jump from 2014 to 2016. Thanks

Depends on what you want. It's a nice car but it's also a two seat coupe with a fairly small trunk. I've enjoyed ours. And of course when you're buying used it all depends on the car.

No. Only 2014 and 2016.

Double and triple check the adaptive. The dealer told me that neither of their 16s have adaptive, including that exact stock number.

Yes, if you are dead set on having adaptive ask for a pic of the build options from the panel in the trunk. Also when cruise is enabled adaptive will have a car and an arrow not a gauge and an arrow for the icon in the DIC.

The fifth VIN character is 'M'. If it's the same as 2014 VINs, that is not ACC equipped.

Mine is a code 'R'. I use ACC a LOT, so, I wouldn't buy a car of any make without this feature.

The 5th character of the VIN indicates the options.

L = base
M = luxury only
N = kona only
P = luxury & kona
R = luxury & adaptive cruise
S = luxury, kona & adaptive cruise

The 2016s don't have the same VIN callouts that the 14s do.

The dealer should be providing you with a printout of the RPOs. Even a pic of the SPID. My salesperson there said no ACC, but we know dealers...

Congrats on the deal! I'm jealous. Amazing car.

They still have one 2016... and it's a great price...

I used this data to research the 14's I was looking at.This didn't seem to work for the 16's.
I'd loved to have had acc.but I'll take the perf. package.gonna be fun learning all the new things in this car.Hope to have the car here Sunday or Monday.
