    Re: First XTS ad I've seen...

    Air suspension was available as an option on the E550 only, but in checking the MBUSA website, there is no mention of air suspension availability on any of the E-Class vehicles, sedans or coupes.

    Having owned both DTS--with and without MRC, and having driven C, E, and S-Class sedans, the only Mercedes that rode better than either DTS was the S-Class with the suspension set in comfort mode. Otherwise, I give the edge in riding comfort to the DTS.

    Applications

    MagneRide was first used by General Motors in the Cadillac Seville STS (2002) and is now used as a standard suspension or an option in many models for Cadillac, Buick, Chevrolet, and other GM vehicles. It can also be found on some non-US vehicles such as: Holden Special Vehicles, Ferrari, and Audi.
    Specific Applications:
    --
    that's from wikipedia ...

    those are the cars that use magneride (or a fairly complete list at least)

    the non-GM brand cars on that list license the technology ... GM doesn't own the tech by the way ...

    Delphi created it ... but then Delphi sold it to BWI (chinese company)

    i think GM own Delphi?? or in the last...may be i'm wrong but i think GM actually invent that or co-operation...
    Why don't you shut the hell up until you ride in one? You talk like you know how it rides. You don't. You are a tired act. You bitch, bitch, bitch about cars you've never driven. Every time I see your name on a post, I get ready to se what garbage you spew.
    well..u needs to relize that..not many people is lucky like u have a rich DAD and he is alway cover your Ass...so if something happen..bring car to shop and he pays..
    we work hard..we know the value of money...so we won't bring junk to home....

    u need to recognize the diffirent between your V8..SC..engine sound..vs the 3.6...
    the V8 sound is the sound of SC...and it is very quiet...the UM UM u heard is the MUFFLER Sound..not the ENGINE>>>>>>>
    the 3.6 sound is from the Timing Chain..that sound...terrible...

    i have CTS-V too..i do not say it is bad car..amazing design for the price...but that is the only thing nice cadillac ever made...from lot of year...

    and u needs to READ better than to TALK if u're really love Car..u should WORK on them...

    that is my toy...after u finish your education..i will talk with u..

    Re: First XTS ad I've seen...

    Has the 3.6L V6 had problems? Yeah, it has. No engine is perfect. Toyota's V6's were sludge monsters, GM's V8's knock and burn oil like no other, Audi's 2.0T drinks oil, etc. All engines have inherent issues depending on when they were designed. The High Feature V6 wasn't designed now, it was designed well over 10 years ago. Technology changes, and so will the quality of cars and various car parts. The Second Generation 3.6L V6 is currently being tested actually, and should launch in the 2014 CTS if all goes well.

    actually the V8 Pushrod GM made is one of the best engine car manufacturer ever made in the wolrd...the RR or Bentley V8 is based on it...

    the GM V8..if u change oil regular..it won't NEVER EVER BURN OIL...
    if u take it a part..and see..that engine is MADE FOR the FINEST in the world..with TITANIUM valve train (for the corvette) ...





    the only problem of the LS9 or LSA is THEY COST TOO MUCH MONEY TO MAKE...than any other DOCH...even the northstar which everypeople think it is more hi-tech than LS but NOT......

    lets think about VARIABLE CAM in one CAM pushrod...that is STAGE OF ART...

    LS9 Crate Engine only cost you $23.000...that is the best and hard to beat...or LS7 also..

    They're great engines, but they aren't without problems. Just ask any truck owner how much oil their truck burns in AFM mode. Trust me, I'm one of them. My Envoy Denali slurps some oil (1 quart for 3,000 miles), and that's actually not that bad of a ratio.

    1 quart /3000 miles is perfectly Acceptable for Hight performance engine sir..
    like i and my buddy alway change oil at every 3000 miles and we use synthetic oil..

    if u have use the 2.0 FSI turbo from audi which use about 1 quart /1000 miles..that is horrible..

    the mercedes use oil also..but they cover them ass by big oil tank. That why u see a lot of mercedes use 10 quart oil..so...u knows what i mean...because the engine can leak oil also..lot of GM car leak oil..especially the Northstar....
    and some truck owner they usually Over towing something..which can cause the engine bad...
    example
    my C200 Kompressor...just 2.0 but it has 7 quart of oil..but i never drain over 5.5 or 6 quart every 3000 miles..

    the 113 5.0 use 10 quart of oil tank...also..

    the meaning of BURN oil IMO is 1 quart of 1000miles or less than 1000 miles..
    other than that...i think it is Use a little bit oil.. or my English is bad..

    i Trust u sir..

    But the thing is, the Envoy Denali's V8 isn't a high performance engine. It's a work engine. It shouldn't do that, but GM's insipid AFM system tends to make an engine develop a taste for oil.

    Re: First XTS ad I've seen...

    First off, all engines will have issues as they're introduced. Despite the efforts of engineers, there is no way they can simulate years of customer driving habits in a lab. Issues will surface and tweaked. If the overall design is solid, the engine will evolve. Case in point the current generation GM pushrod V8s.

    Before going off to college and getting my computer science degree and then going off in the corporate world, I grew up (literally) around cars. My uncle owns (still does) his own auto repair shop on the northwest side of Chicago. I would work there on the weekends as a little kid through my teens, and at a gas station across the street on weeknights, so I have fond memories of those late 60s and 70s cars.

    My college car was a '78 Chevy Impala 2 door (LOVED THAT CAR, great memories with it and in it ). That car had a 305 cu in V8. That engine and the 350 cu in were the ancestors of pushrod V8s in today's era of Corvettes, Camaros and CTS-Vs.

    While we may fondly reminisce about those engines, they hardly started out as being bulletproof. Those small block V8s were known to have camshaft issues. The metal used for the camshaft was pretty soft and eventually the lobes would wear down (shortly after 100K) miles and you would have issues.

    People accepted it then because "it had over 100K miles on it afterall". Go over to the CTS forum and there's a guy who spun a bearing at 107K miles and everyone (including me) are saying it shouldn't have happened that early.

    Those early engines were also notorius for timing chain failures at 100K miles, almost EXACTLY. Now while those engines were non-interference, the failures weren't catastrophic, but they always left you stranded. Mine did.

    The Japanese makes, Toyota and Honda had a ton of issues early on when they were putting aluminum heads on cast iron blocks. The metals would expand differently with the heat and it caused all kinds of problems with head and manifold gaskets.

    As someone else mentioned, the Northstar engines, while highly touted early on, leaked like crazy after the miles wore on.

    Again as someone else mentioned, Toyota had sludge issues on some of their V6s.

    The recent generation 3.6 has some known oil consumption issues. Later iterations had some tweaks made and over on the CTS forum it seems like it's less of an issue in the more recent versions. Is that because they're newer (less miles) or because of those changes? Only time will tell.

    My point in all of this is as I said in the beginning, if an engine is solid overall, the design will evolve and stand the test of time as the current GM pushrod V8s have proven. Other engines (remember GMS Quad 4?) will simply fade away.

    So you have ridden in an XTS? That's the whole point here. If you can't get through your thick skull that point, then you are useless to talk to.

    And, again, you don't know me. The amount of ignorance you spew is alarming...

    Dude, you really need to learn how to write English properly. You come across as an Asian caricature and embarrass yourself every time you post. You're an illiterate young punk hiding behind a anonymous avatar, and you're making yourself, all Vietnamese, and all Asians look bad. You think that because (i) you looked up the XTS specs online and (ii) your "friend" works at a car shop in the U.S., that you're an expert and can quantify the driving experience of a car you've never even sat in, let alone seen in person? Can't wait to hear your opinions on other cars for which you've magically prognosticated the performance, handling, and ride. Please tell me all about the 2013 Lexus LS and 2014 Cadillac ELR! How is the ride in those? Was the sound system any good in either?

    You're wasting thebigjimsho's time, my time, and everyone else's time by splashing your blabbering nonsense all over these message boards. You're the poster child for having a feaure to hide certain "contributors" so one never has to read their drivel.
