    I used to run a car dealership.

    I never saw a car get thrashed before the new owner picked one up.

    I also never lived in the ghetto, so 'high-profile' cars might get handled differently there. Thanks for the heads-up.

    I can't believe you're so arrogant.

    EXACTLY!! Katshot said it perfectly here. We are talking about a Cadillac here boys. It is supposed to be smooth and refined, creating the deception of speed and power.

    And the first poster was right... def not the same as a Grand Prix that happens to have 8 cylinders. (and for good reason )

    Re: Test Drive Impressions

    I agree, new cars, especially luxury cars with automatic transmissions are so quite, smooth and refined... the only real indication of how fast you are going is the speedometer as well as stuff passing you by....

    no major body lean from acceleration, loud engine/exhaust noise or feedback in general... it just goes.

    one of the reasons why a car like m '79 DeVille... a 17.5s 1/4 mi. car can, and does seem so fast... that and the engine power band.... there is alot more to all this stuff then numbers alone...

    Hey Jack, I'm not the one making remarks like:

    "If you're driving a Pontiac GXP, who in the world gave you the keys to an STS-V??? Was it Joyride Chevrolet?"

    "The idea of having every low-rent Tom, Dick and Harry..."

    "I also never lived in the ghetto, so 'high-profile' cars might get handled differently there."


    These are rather rude, condescending and arrogant statements made by YOU, and directed toward other member(s) here. You come off like a major snob. Don't try to make ME the bad guy here.
