    You are correct the CTS-V does not have a heated wheel. Which I really miss.

    I think he was saying that there needs to be a car sized physically similar to the STS V as the CTS V is too small.

    That is exactly what I meant (CTS is a bit too small).
    As for the M6 GT she promised me a test ride in, she was sadly mistaken. All she had were M5's and a few M6 coupes and convertibles. The M6 is interesting, but I already have a 2 seater convertible, so not looking for another. Maybe later in the year.

    Well, the CTS that is premiering in New York in April is going to be about the size of our car. Obviously there will be a V version, but probably not until 2015 (seeing as how Cadillac is coping BMW to a T these days, I'm sure the V will be delayed a year, like /M cars are). So there's your direct replacement. You just have to wait 18 months.

    The other option is waiting until 2016 and getting the V version of the next generation long wheel-base Cadillac. (which is all unconfirmed) This would be more like an Alpina B7 though I'm assuming.

    Not sure I can wait 18 months to 2 years. My V's extended warranty is up this December. Not sure I want to run around without a warranty.
    So I have most of the year to think about it. The VP at my dealership seems to have a pretty good pulse on what Caddy is doing, and always seems to have a bit of inside information. If I tell him I am thinking of walking to another brand, he will probably share that info. Don't want to leave, but if there is nothing on the horizon that would be worth waiting for . . .

    Are folks that worried about driving an out of warranty Caddy or other car in general?

    I'm a bit curious as I've have had very few extended warranties, and I only purchased them when I expected problems like on my previous Northstar Eldorados where we expect engine case half leaks. Most of my cars are all bought used, usually not factory certified, and out of warranty.

    My V was bought at 79K miles two months ago, it does come with a, 'lifetime powertrain warranty' from the selling dealer as long as I get it serviced there but it wasn't a condition for me to buy a used Caddy, I don't sweat not having a warranty much. Aside from a few possible catastrophic failures which I've never experienced I've only had minor issues with my Caddys, Corvettes, and other luxury vehicles which were relatively easy to deal with and occasionally take a weekend or two a year to resolve.

    I do my own repairs, so maybe that's why I'm of a different mindset. I just don't understand why so many people worry about having a warranty the whole ownership period, it seems to take the fun out of owning a particular automobile.

    I also maintain a winter beater vehicle. When I bought my Aurora it had 116K miles on it and runs perfectly. While I was researching them I saw many for sale with 180K, 230K, etc miles on them. That tells me they seem to hold up pretty well and I didn't worry about anything other than replacing worn parts, mostly suspension. It's got 133K miles on it now and reliably takes me on my 100 mile a day work commute in bad weather, I don't worry a bit about it. I'd drive it cross country without a second thought.

    Doesn't make much sense financially to buy a different car for many thousands because you might have a few thousand dollar repair bill. Unless your car is really messed up overall or super high mileage, its almost always cheaper to fix your current car.

    I think most people just use this statement to rationalize getting a new car......"The repair will cost more than the car is worth". Financially speaking that's a worthless statement.

    Re: Heated steering wheel no workie

    Eight years is a pretty good run. No major issues with the car at present, and in no real hurry to do anything. But there are a few things I would like to have that the '06 doesn't have, and since the warranty will expire at the end of the year, seems as good a time as any. Just looking to get the best deal and all the features and horses I would like. If that means waiting until next year, so be it.
    While I don't expect anything catastrophic to happen, if it does and there is no warranty, there goes any chance for a decent trade-in $ or being able to resell it directly. Just being pragmatic. Car still drives and looks great, but other than TimmyC's intake, I can't see putting any more $ into it either at this point. Just wish Caddy had an equivalent or better car to upgrade to.

    The size of the CTS is just too small for me which is why I chose STS instead.

    It's cool. The STS V is a good car, I don't understand the size thing tho, the cars are dimensionally within inches, some 10ths of inches of each other. CTS is only 5 inches shorter, front leg room, hip room, shoulder room all within 10ths. The CTS feels narrower, but it really isn't. The main difference to me is the ride quality, the CTS rides so much better than the STS did. Why Cadillac decided NOT to put MRC on the STS V has always been a mystery to me, especially for what the car listed for new. I still think one of these days when everyone is driving government mandated Aveo's both of these cars (STS V AND CTS V) will be collectors cars.
