Traded in my 04 CTS-V. Totally enjoyed the V. Time for a change, a new adventure.

Details: White Diamond, 22 inch wheels, Climate Package, Information Package, 2nd Row Power Release, Moonroof.

Have only driven it about 20 miles so far. Going to take it on a road trip tomorrow and maybe a longer one this weekend. :)

Be careful about the road trips in break in - manual states that you need to keep your speed at 55mph or less for the first 500 miles, and not to travel one consistent speed for any extended period of time for those same first 500 miles. Seems ridiculous, and near impossible, actually. We plan to take ours down to San Diego Friday - guess I'll have to go 55mph on the 5 freeway - ya right - and constantly vary my speed from 45mph to 55mph.

Enjoy your new truck!

I must say, their is a bit more of a strut in my step strolling up to my Escalade, than my Landcruiser.

Took it on a hundred mile round trip yesterday, up to the mountains and back. Varied the speed. Averaged 15.9 mpg. Not bad.
