Watch for the dreaded timing codes that come up. It's not uncommon for those to have timing related issues otherwise nice vehicles I do like them
You beat me to it. However, 2010 and on are mostly clear of this problem. The 2008-09 vintage are the one's to watch. My 2008 CTS had chains done at 70k mile range and my Dad's 08 CTS had them done at 45k miles. Dad went by the OLM and I did 5k mile changes so all I did was postpone the pain.
Thanks for the heads up on the timing chains. From the Carfax it looks like it had all its scheduled maintenance done by the same dealer. Oil changes look like they were going around 10k intervals. Seems to be running well, and other than an O2 sensor replaced at 80,000 it doesn't look like it's had anything significant. Here's hoping for no timing chain problems.
I noticed a 2011 Surburban had what I thought was a decent amount of rust already forming on sheetmetal underneath, and of course the frame and linkages. I would get it undercoated soon to help with corrosion that you know will be coming. Looks like a nice ride.

Is it an HF V6? Where was the engine made?
I've got a Japanese HF V6 and an Australian HF V6 and haven't heard a peep from GM about the chains. My OLM's still have the original factory (long OCI) calibration.
Nice car, BTW!
