This is not a warning about the car, it is amazing. It is a warning about potential accident hazard. I have had it 5 days at this posting, and have nearly had 2 accidents, however I was not involved. It appears other car drivers are slowing down too fast when they look at this amazing car and they both came close to being rear ended.
I also quite often come out of a store and find people around the vehicle taking photos with cell phones and peering into windows to see interior design, I think Cadillac should supply window cleaner and paper towel with each new CTS-V Coupe.
Sorry folks nothing but great things to say so far, this is one vehicle GM has made that ROCKS.

UPDATE: if you have to worry about cost of gas, this baby isn't for you. right now i have to fill it every couple of days. Almost took it from Toronto to Sarnia for a run but was afraid I wouldn't make it on one tank of gas. besides there was chance of rain and snow so I left it parked and took the Hybrid Escalade instead.
WINTER TIRES: GM and other aftermarket dealers are recommending Pirelli's, but I have GM engineering looking into if they will fit on existing rims, as I am not sure you can downsize rims due to brake sizes which is the usual way of adding a bulkier tire. Will update when know.
Also signed up for the CTS driver training at Mosport June 22nd that should be fun, includes workshop and track driving.

Car handles rain with ease, no need to worry, just don't floor it from a stop on wet roads.
Have added Corsa mufflers, and Hennessey cold air induction system, now at approx 590HP
