I was in LA this wknd for the Rose Bowl (my Wolverines let me down yet again) talking to my friend who has the basic automatic CTS with the 2.xL motor. He was on his way to Vegas with his parents for X-mas and about 80 miles out the car was making voilent rear end noises and wouldn't go over 30mph. He had to get towed to Vegas and had to stay there an extra day to get the rear diff replaced. Happy Holidays GM!!! Bastards.

The title of this thread sounds like the title of a movie I'd never want to see...

He should have made a video of the road trip and posted it on streetfire.net...

Well obviously your friend has modified his CTS adding HP beyond the point that the car was designed for AND like others have said must be abusing his car while driving it. PLUS the only reason this kind of failure would occur is because he's reving the engine in neutral and then drop shifting the automatic for quick line starts when he takes the 2.8 ltr down to the track to run against top fuel cars. I mean what other possible reason(s) could there be ?

Acording to my local dealerships... This must be west coast problem.... As not one east coast dealership here in MA will admit they had ever replaced a cts-v differential.... Not including NY, NJ, as that's a differental story!! :gasp:

I don't know about the V series ,but on my automatic cts there is a rev limiter applied when stepping on the gas in neutral. I can't possibly pop it into first for better starts.

You've got an Automatic in your "V"? That must have been an expensive modification... What Trans. did you go for to handle the power of the "V" engine?

CIWS put a turbo 400 in it with a 3,600 rpm stall.

He shatteres a rear end about every third launch but he's rich and single and can afford the replacement parts.

You're just hatin', G. You V guys are all such jerks. I make more money than all of you, and also own a Lamborgeeny Mursealigo.

I've been going to the Rosebowl for about 4 years straight now. It is the most amazing Bowl to attend. I feel bad for your Wolverines (as a Michigan native) but USC is AMAZING (-the UCLA loss). I still hope you enjoyed your visit.
