We're going to start this post by stating that domestic automakers have come a long way in improving the quality and durability of the cars they build. That said, cars are still built on Friday afternoon and every once in a while one not fit for public roads slips out. Unfortunately for General Motors, the owner of this Cadillac CTS-V that refuses to run properly is part of the team that runs a little site called with a subscriber base for its user-posted videos in the millions. Cjonesy is his name, and this video he posted on today documents the death throws of his 2006 Cadillac CTS-V with around 12,000 miles on his trip home from the PRI show.

The CTS-V manages to limp home over a couple hundred miles, during which time cjonesy films himself cursing the car and its maker while never going faster than 60 mph with the pedal mashed on the floor. The tachometer died before he started recording and halfway through the LS1 V8 begins to rattle like its possessed by a demon. Cjonesy's monologue to the camera throughout the video is as funny as his car is tragic, but we warned there's some cursing.

Cjonesy's a trooper though (for now) and posted the video to get feedback on what he or GM should do about the car. Well, GM already ordered one of its dealer's to replace a customer's car today, so while the wallet's open...

Thanks for the tip, Stefan!
