The reviewer is very impressed that the V has accumulated 30,000 miles of hard driving and nothing has broken.

They seem to have forgotten about the time one of the rear windows put itself down and wouldn't go back up.

Cadillac has turned the reliability corner?

This is particularly relevant as I (weakly) consider a cross-grade to a 6MT Vagon.

That was C&D's car...

Damn magazines all start running together.

30,000 miles in 10 months on the MT car though. I think that is all that needs said in the long term review. Seems abnormally high to me, even for a magazine. indicating that everyone loves it and drives it as much as possible.

----------

Sounds like C&D puts 40,000 miles on long term vehicles. I wonder how long other cars take to reach that mileage. Their V wagon also appeas to have gotten to about 30k in about 10 months.

More importantly, why were the tires rotated?
