    $4995 for a base 2015 5MT with only 23,000 kms = 14k miles!

    That's a crazy good deal for what's basically an "almost new" 6 year-old car.

    Montreal area.

    That's funny - I was thinking the exact same thing the other day (ELR). But then I realized, unlike the Volt platform it's built on, the Caddy isn't a liftback, even though the roofline kind of...

    He actually traded it in for a Outlander PHEV.
