    Buying the V would have not only required me to shell out the extra $$$, but also buy some beater car for those snowy, slushy days. In addition to drive ability issues, it would break my heart to drive the V on slushy salty roads.

    My son is still trying to talk me into trading in my Premium AWD coupe for an off-lease V coupe. There are several lower mileage models that can be had for near $50K which is very doable, but the winter is still an issue.
    I can relate to your winters, I lived & worked in Detroit the winter of '08-'09 and on weekends made that trip back home through Canada. I was driving a Jeep Grand Cherokee @ the time & happy for it. We current live on the water in what is referred to "The Snow Belt" of NY state so the AWD was a must have.

    I'm from the Chicago area and moved to Michigan for a significant job opportunity about 6 years ago. A couple of months ago a head hunter called me about an opportunity in Minneapolis. Money wasn't that much better and quite honestly if I had to move again it would either be back home or more preferably somewhere where the winters are less harsh.

    Your 'down here' is great during our winters up here... not so great during your summers months (our son in the Air Force is currently station in Florida & it's toooooo hot for me).

    The new coupe is coming--just lagging the sedan. No wagon on the CTS however.

    For the record, my car is a 2008 CTS and I don't have the first $50K or the "extra 20K". But then, nether do you or you would have a 2013 V-Coupe. Those that can, have a V, all others don't. Deal with it.
    Not necessarily. People have different reasons for choosing the model they did. I was actually highly considering a used low mileage V for roughly the same price range as I paid for my premium with the summer tire package. I still opted for the new premium. So it's not fair to say those that can have a V do and others don't. Maybe some people would rather use that 20k difference to buy a second vehicle for a spouse or one of their children. Or perhaps just get the cheaper car and have a cheaper note and save. Everyone's financial situation is different so let's not assume. The V is a beautiful car, but for 20k more, Cadillac has lost their damn minds.

    "...but for 20k more, Cadillac has lost their damn minds."

    Personally, I disagree. They have built an automobile that has major balls, and their suspension is fantastic. It is quite an automobile. I don't think it is out of line at all.

    Just like yours, one man's opinion.

    Can someone help me? I think I'm having some computer problems. My computer shows that there are 4 pages to this thread. The above thread is the last post on page 3. It is post #45. When I click on page 4 my computer goes to the 2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion page.
