    wow - that's pretty sad.

    Looks like you caught a case of the "UAW Friday." See if a dose of "going back to the dealer" can keep it from spreading... but I've seen extreme cases become fatal. It's serious shit, man.

    vade_R and Club Malibu like this.

    The carpet is a known issue - many have seen it and have the issue. This is one thing about the car, its a fantastic ride but the build quality will slowly put you off.

    To Top it off, I was installing my Airaid CAI and when looking down I saw a wire hanging. The Driver side Fog light was not plugged in!!!!!

    So Yea... so far not too impressed with the build quality. My 13 Land Cruiser has me spoiled I guess.

    As was stated, the carpet is a known flaw. Why it hasn't been rectified is anyone's guess...five years later. The console, well that's a new one on me. Sorry, man.

    And GM wants to charge $10k to $15k more for the V3? Seriously, build quality like this is a shame.

    I have a '11 Vagon and had the same issue not long after I got it. The dealer replaced the entire driver side carpet. Now it is popping out of the left side of the footwell, and I don't even rest my foot there! I'm taking it back in Monday.

    Well this is not a surprise. Gm quality is usually worst in the industry. I found this out after my 2008 z06 that stickers at 79k was starting to creek like crazy after like 8 k miles. The materials and build quality of gm is terrible. It's just the way it is. Sad but always been the case.

    You are in the wrong manufacturers' cars; stick with German or Japanese and you'll be fine. Sell that V, immediately, and we won 't have to hear your whining anymore. Do it now before you see another sunset. Otherwise, we might doubt your sincerity.

    Lol, every time I post something you don't like , you come in like a bored dik and spew your gm nut hugging ways. By the way i don't have a V yet asshat. Iam still looking for a manual when I get one , I know the looks, performance and motor make the car , not the interior . Same thing with my Z06 ..I don't buy any car from gm because I like the interior quality. That's not gm,s strong attribute.
    Iam in the wrong manufacture , Why because I talk the truth .? Lol , did you want me to nut hug and say everyone is wrong , gm has the best interiors.
    Are you really comparing the quality of a BMW or MBZ to a caddy.?..... I love my American cars just as much as the next guy but if you don't think the fit and finish of German cars aren't better your just a moronic homer.
    Which I know your an idiot after I asked what car was faster from a roll and your dumbass tells me the top speed of both cars. Duhhhhh.. These are car forums , where people talk cars. If your getting butt hurt why even read the threads ? Sorry , not everything is always roses.
    Tough guy , with tough talk on the caddy boards. It's cool bro , I know you mean business on here
    By the way what's up with the broke back mountain avatar?
