    The only thing I would like to see from Cadillac is making sure repair facilities have the resources they need to work on the 4.4L.

    If you ever have additional STS-V feedback you would like me to document, feel free to private message me anytime!

    Problem is, you can't even get rear wheel drive in the xts, only front or all... Just a RWD V8 would be better than only having a FWD V6 available.

    Then I will document this comment where the proper GM teams can see it, torched! Thanks very much for your input.

    1st I am glad the Cadillac Customer Service now also interacts with the STS-V threads, even though most STS-Vs would be outside of their original factory warranties.

    I like getting bang for my buck, but most individuals especially in these vehicle classes will pay for vehicles that deliver. I know part of Cadillac's strategy has been to undercut while outperforming the competition. I think the CTS-V is a good example of where that strategy was poorly applied even though it was successful. I have a 09 STS-V, and there are a few features that my vehicle has that the CTS-V lacks, that would lead me to evaluate competing vehicles for purchase, even though it out performs my car in the areas of track performance.

    I'm waiting for Cadillac to build the vehicle where compromise is not in the equation.

    At first I was like Torched10 has lost it, but then I thought about all the high performance all wheel drive vehicles, I think a high performance all-wheel drive XTS has merit! But I doubt Cadillac would invest in whats necessary to deliver a XTS-V, since performance is not that cars mission.
