When last my salesperson contacted me, the story of my wagon order was that it had been pushed to MY2014.
So when he called me Friday afternoon (May 24th), I figured he'd heard when GM was taking orders and/or starting production for MY2014.
But no. "A black CTS-V wagon just showed up on the truck today." I was gobsmacked. Apparently they'd scheduled, built, and shipped it while he was on vacation.
So Saturday morning I took one last romp in the Corvette -- man oh man I'm gonna miss that car -- and then traded it in and drove off in my new wagon: Raven Black, polished wheels, UltraView, ebony Recaros, suede.
Following break-in rules is hard -- the problem isn't driving gently, it's not going a constant speed.
Favorite feature over the first 150 miles: ventilated seats.
Build glitches: wrong shift knob (it's leather, should be suede), loose shift knob (knob and boot came off the shifter in my hand, quickly fixed), and loose center console carpet (bulging so much that, when my foot is on the accelerator, the edge of my shoe clips the brake pedal if I'm not careful. It's not as scary as it sounds.) Should be patched up when parts arrive Wednesday.
