    I forgot to mention the great steering feel, one of my favorites. Makes those rocket ship passes totally drama free.

    [pointless political commentary removed] On another note I love my sts v. No interior issues at all so far. Plus I've gotten better mpg as I've modified. 14ish mpg on highway while stock... Now after modifications 23/21mpg. But honestly I don't think many of us mind if we are filling up an extra time or two.

    [QUOTE="tblazeman@aol.com"]Just a suggestion, try "friction Free", additive to the rear diff.
    I have been using this product in my GM, and other vehicles, (with great success), since the late '70's.
    It has effectively solved hum in rear, transfer cases, and "Rock-crusher" manual transmissions, for me (over many years).
    Most recently solved a first gear "grind", in my Tremec T-56 transmission, in my 2004 GTO coupe.
    It is cheap, and easy to use (squeeze in toothpaste type dispenser).
    I hope this helps for any of you, as your cars are quite tremendous machines of envy!
    Best of luck,
    Tim Blaszak

    Just an update: That product is now called "FriktionTek", if anyone is interested in trying it.

At the moment I don't know of any car more suited to me. I've never taken a car past 85,000 miles but this one may go to 100,000 easily.

Cars are all a matter of personal preference for the most part, theres people out there who are into Ferraris and Lambos and to them they are worth the extra money, everybody is different, that's what makes the world go around. I dunno why Caveman is brining Politics into the whole mix of things.

    Yes I completely agree with you, the new Vette has come a long ways, the new interior is light years ahead of the older ones, they made these design changes because they had too because there was so much public outcry about how bad the interiors were in the older ones. It could be someday I'll be driving a V3 and back in a Cadillac if all the discussed issues were corrected in the future, until that time though I'll stick with my Benz.
    What propaganda ?

    I've tried the 'no lift' twice. Both times have made me cringe. Is it supposed to be abrupt during the change or am I screwing it up? I've done it in Comp mode and shifted while flat around 6k rpm. The S/C whines like crazy and the shift is violent.

    Back to cars. The V1 is not better made than the V2. The first gen CTS had problems too. I did a lot of research before buying a V2, and it really appears to be a solid platform. The V1 wasn't bad, I wanted one at a time when I couldn't afford one, and was stuck in an LS1 F body. I ended up moving to Chrysler for a couple cars, because in the early 2000's after Benz took over they made some great cars, better than what GM had to offer in performance sedans.

    Appreciate all the opinions and feedback. Let's keep the thread limited to the V quality and stop talking about Obama. Politics give me a headache and I don't want to think about it when I come to this online 'happy place'.

    Ha haa! I try not to scare the locals too much. I travel certain routes frequently and don't want to wake up the LEO's.

    [pointless political commentary removed] But let's get back discussing OP's unfortunate case of buyer's remorse (which I empathize with, but do not share).
    [pointless political commentary removed] Enjoy the V while you can, as tomorrow is promised to no one.
