    She's good so far. The dealer drove it 134 miles. Letter to dealer on Monday. Really. 134 miles?

    For the love of god, find a new dealer if possible. I understand they need to test it but that seems like way too much testing was going on there. But, I'm glad things are well so far!

    When I had the tie rod ends replaced on my old maxima, they drive it 68 miles. I complained and got a free oil change the next time I came in...big deal.

I've read numerous sources, and no I have not done an "official" test on my own vehicle, but the 2nd Gen CTS with the 3.6 is suppose to do 0-60 in anywhere from 6.0 seconds flat to 6.3 seconds, depending on the source.
    I noticed that too. I can't imagine the 3.0 was doing 0-60 in 7.5 seconds. The 3.6 is definitely in the low 6s.

    Re: 2014 CTS Has a 7K Price Increase

    I had my GMC Sierra into the dealer years ago for a transmission problem (TSB). The dealer owner/sales mgr says, I'll get you a car to use. 5 min later he hands me the keys to this Buick LaSarbe and said, Dave (SM) will call you when your truck is done. I got in and headed home. As I was driving I noticed a coat and some books in the back seat but thought nothing of it as I figured he might have been using it. Later in the day I went to run an errand and spotted the car had regular plates on it and then looked at the stuff in the back seat, checked the glove compartment and found a registration in there with someone's name on it. I figure, OK a recent trade-in.

    To make a long story short, he gave me a customers car to use for a day and overnight. No BS, true. When I went to drop off the keys I mentioned to the SM that someone had left a coat and some books in that car. He laughs and says, no thats Joe Somebodys car and he is out of town and left it here to fix. How are the brakes? .

    Wow...what a dealer. I wonder how they'd handle it if you were somehow involved in an accident. "I'm sorry Joe Somebody but we loaned your car to someone and they effed it up...lol.

    Bankruptcy forced a delay on the transmission. It was also due on the Corvette. 2014 cts will be unique with that transmission.

    It has to be much better than the French tranny. It sounds quite good and promising in the article.

    That show how far the manufacturers will go to eek out any type of mpg. Also, the other German luxobarges will have 8 speeds, so the have to follow this trend. But I also found this an amazing minute mpg.

    Should be smoother and quieter at highway speeds.

    And at 26 mpg, 1.5% amounts to .39 mpg. After you pointed that out, MoFex, like you I shake my head at the complexity and cost.
