    New Vagon Owner (L.A.)

    Hi All,

    New CTS-V Wagon owner here. I traded in my 2012 GC SRT8 (Silver/Blk) for a 2012 CTS-V Wagon. She's blk/blk, freshly tinted windows, black wheels and a new black grill. She's a beauty!

    I love the drive, and the handling is superb. My only gripes so far are that the driver and passenger Recaros tend to rub the center console and I have some yet to be identified rattle coming from the passenger door. Other than that, I am very pleased.

    Rachelle

    Thanks for the welcome, Trapspeed! I posted a before photo (from the showroom floor). I'll post an updated photo that shows off her new wheels, grill and tint later this week.

    Nice car, is that the black diamond or the raven black? I can't really tell with the lighting in the photo you posted. I'm getting a black diamond one next week. Lot's of new Vagons around here lately . Congrats. Any plans to paint the Calipers if they are the stocker silver ones? The one I'm getting does not have the Recaros, I'm just not comfortable in them. I think for smaller people they work ok, but I'm a big guy and I felt kinda crammed in with them.

    Another wagon owner. One can never argue with good taste.

    New or used? 6AT (most likely since that's what's left of the 2012s) or 6MT?

    Have fun, I've had my wagon for a little over 48 hours and still having fun with it.

    Saw your postings on the Jeep forum earlier this fall that you were selling your SRT8, you got my thinking about doing the same so I did it in early November-traded my 2012 Jeep GC SRT8 for the CTS V wagon. Very happy so far.

    What is the problem with the GC SRT 8's? Just curious. They don't look like too bad a vehicle although far from a sports car.

    Nice, another local Vagon! I just bought my Vagon from the same dealer a couple weeks ago, maybe we'll bump into each other at our free washes sometime.

    If you see a black diamond Vagon tooling around Santa Monica, honk and wave!
