I was nosing around edmunds and was looking to see what was the MSRP for 07 CTS-V. One thing that stuck out was the gas guzzler tax? I thought cags was to get rid of the tax...so if the tax is there is the cags crap removed from the 07s?

I paid that tax for my 05. I think it was $1200.

05 was the only year that had it (so far).

What mileage are you all getting? I was averaging 11 but some of that could have been my engine problem.

14.2, but that's with plenty of spirited driving. I see around 23-25 on the highway, but factor in the "merging" runs, and it tanks pretty quick.

I don't think the '07 will have the guzz tax, Edmunds is probably misinformed. It's a concession to Corporate Average Fuel Economy, and I believe the STS-V and XLR-V are carrying the burden now.

kadonny..hows the motor replacement going?

After a week of sitting in the shop with no word on what was going to be done, I called and laid down some serious smack on my salesman on Saturday. He was a great salesman and so I decided to have him push for me. I basically said we have 2 options here. 1. New engine. 2. New car. I told him to go directly to the general manager or the owner, but I wanted an answer on Monday.

Monday morning I got a call from the service rep, GM had approved the engine replacement. Salesman called me back about an hour later and told me he was looking to try to locate a new SG car, I told him service just called and approved the engine. Needless to say, the replacement car search stopped.

Anyway, bottom line is I have to wait a week for the engine to come in, then a few more days to put it in. Thats probably almost another 2 weeks without the car, sadly. I miss it. I'm driving a loaner DTS. Uggggggh.
