Thanks to GM Inside news

Bottom line: some color deletions, Rainsense is back, Recaros available in standard CTS, no bump in power for V.

not much going on for 2012. I wonder when the big rebates begin for left over 2011 models.

bummer was really hoping for the "gm version of sync" in the caddy and a dct, guess I'll just keep my 09.

I wish they would add power folding mirrors and auto dim outside mirror. Kinda' ridiculous for a 70K car.

...and re-enable the passenger-side mirror tilt-down when engaging reverse...+1. I haven't been in a sedan, but you CANNOT see down next to the car from the mirrors in the coupe. Oh, and would gridlines in the back up camera be too much to ask???

At least you have a camera, the '09s don't :mad: Blind spot warning sounds like it would be welcomed on the coupe...

Amen! Preach!


dct?????

Dual clutch transmission (automatic)

I see no reason to swap out from my 2009 either, other than to add the Recaros which in retrospect I should have waited for.

I agree, I am hoping to get an '11 V coupe, trading in the sedan while it's still worth something

will have to hope there is maybe a left over 11 v wagon in silver with reacoros and 6 spd manual but that is highly unlikely

lol if there's a leftover stick shift wagon, I'd bet it's one somebody ordered and backed out of. A lot of the dealers are afraid of the sticks not selling for some reason.

I agree but it's too bad, a stick V-Wagon is the total one of a kind car - years from now this will be one of those cars that people look back at...

yep for sure i had a hard enough time finding a 6 speed s4 avant back a few years ago, i can imagine how much worse finding a v wagon 6 speed would be once they cut production:crybaby::crybaby:
