Agreed. A solid and fair review of the V-Wagon's strengths and weakness. Am I correct that the reviewed car did not have the Ultraview?

What's the point of testing a performance vehicle on snow tires. Having proper tires will make a world of difference.

"Any shortcomings fall from mind once the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 is awakened with a pushbutton." Pushbutton? I don't have no stinking pushbutton.

Isn't the push button starter new for 2011? My friend has one in his new SRX, so I assumed that was being done across the entire Cadillac product line.

The '05 XLR has pushbutton start. A novelty.

I agree with the door pulls. Always seem flimsy.
