    Well damn, I'm just going to sell my car because it didn' come with an iPhone 5 adapter. Screw this!

    Seriously, everyone is spending too much time concentrating on the 45 seconds the presenter was talking out of his ass at the beginning, and not on the other 7 minutes where he was extremely positive about the V wagon. I submit that he is not a bozo. See the positive folks! Remember, people dream about driving a V wagon, especially a stick version. We are living the dream, people! The fact is that most ordinary people can't afford a V period, let alone a V wagon, so we get approached at every gas stop (or at least I do).

    Fair enough. It's just more fun to mock...!

    Sorry, not giving him credit for being positive. Every little schlub review of the CTS-V Wagon -- and there's probably one review for every five cars built -- has that "don't bite the hand that feeds me" glow. Everybody wants to like a 556hp luxury sport wagon they got to hoon on the builder's dime. So this guy spent a little more time on the tech... and got more details wrong. I don't see the value of more (belated) mish-mash exposure at this point.

    I was also a bit surprised to see that review pop up in my feed. Aside from the fact that the V-Wagon is near the end of it's run, the nav/entertainment/toys are kind of beside the point in this car - certainly what we have in the current model is of very little of interest to someone interested in Car "Tech" (the tech emphasis being on Information Technology, who I assume are CNET's audience).

    It was interesting reading the comments though. We all know already that this car is not for most people, and I dare say that's an integral part of its appeal.

    Re: New Review of the V-Wagon

    CNET is a computer / tech site. The only reason they started doing car reviews was to compare the tech inside...mostly the navigation systems, audio, and such. So this review came as no surprise to me. CNET reviews always follow this formula. What I find odd is the fact that he's reviewing a 6 year old technology. What's the point of that?

    I suspect he ran into the opportunity to drive the car, wanted it for the day, and justified it with the review. I don't blame him.

    Yeah, comments are funny. You know all of the haters would take one in hearbeat. Also seems a lot of international commentors which the first inclination is to compare it to xxxxxx. Most of which we don't have here in the states or is double priced.

    I liked his comment on the car's power. Even when your driving without your foot on the floor and the SC pumping, this is a very powerful vehicle. No matter the driving situation there's plenty of power at a touch of the accelerator.
