    Good review, that car is identical to my car, even same year. He nailed it at the end "this car makes no sense at all" lol.

    Car Tech is neat because he goes into finer detail into the tech and assessments for daily driving. Took him long enough to review it and clearly the tech is far outdated at this point.

    Just skip the first sixty seconds where he's talking out of his ass and trying to be clever.

    Also, so tired of people saying "six-speed" when they mean "manual." The automatic is a six-speed too.

    Re: New Review of the V-Wagon

    Almost entirely accurate review other than a couple of details.

    A. You don't swipe the map to move it, you touch where you want to go and then touch the arrows. He thought he was on CUE for a second there.
    B. he forgot to mention the $3k Recaro option.

    No, this car makes no sense all...it is so cool.

    Kind of a hostile start to an accepting end.

    Total mischaracterization in the beginning. The CTS-V wagon is not a dud, that's the base wagon, and yes that is a significant distinction. And they don't still build them because Europe likes them, they still build them because they have the tooling and they're piggybacking sedan and coupe production. The way he butchers the situation he nearly implies that they're going to keep building wagons in the next generation.

    As a single father of 3 kids I think it makes perfect sense. If I bought a corvette, I would never get to use it. This is fun and practical.
    IBMike and IBMike like this.

    Another criticism I don't understand is the Nav system. I'm a very tech-loving guy and the CTS-V nav system is fine for me. I have my phone if I need anything extravagant.

    You and me. I love the nav system and don't understand the complaints; it only takes minimal intelligence to operate. Maybe the complainants need to rely on maps or go to school. They need to get into the 21st century.

    Re: New Review of the V-Wagon

    Speaking of the nav, while he was complaining about it he forgot to mention that with onstar you can use your phone to get nav directions and then send it to the nav screen in the car, which was one of the things he said it couldn't do. Research, right? So tedious. Yes, the system is outdated now, it came out in 2008. It still works fine for me.

    But who buys a car like this because of the iPod adapter (or lack thereof)?

    I probably wouldn't have bought it if it had CUE (serious).

    Nav works fine for me, wish it had bluetooth streaming though.
