    $45000 car with no GPS?!?!

    I really want the new XTS but I'm not willing to go over about 46k or even higher than 519 in a lease. To be honest, it angers the hell out of me that Cadillac is so greedy that you are forced to pay 50k in order to get GPS.

    Do you guys think they they will start offering GPS as a standard option in the next year?

    It's really sad because I can go and get a very nice Hyundai Genesis or Volkswagen CC with everything for way less. 20k cars have GPS and leather. WTF. But I can wait a year if i have to, if they'll offer it.

    Some people don't need navigation or want the CUE system. Cadillacs are supposed to be expensive.

    All Cadillacs have a form of GPS. It's called OnStar turn by turn directions. The service is free for the first year, then $100 more per year than the basic OnStar service. Works well, but no map, and no traffic integration. It's nearly hands-free, too.

    I have a question for you owners....once the phone is paired with the system and lets say you have the free google navigation system going on your phone does it send any of the driving alerts to your car? I am just curious about this.

    I paid 1800 to BMW for NAV when I bought my 65K M3 convertible back in 2006. Let's see Hyundai, Kia, Honda, Toyota. Comparing transportation vs Luxury.

    Onstar ... What a joke I called a few weeks ago at 9:30 am on a wednesday it took 20 minutes for my call to be answered. I wanted them to run a diagnosis of a car issue but the issue I was having wasn't part of the monitored featureset.

    Sure, you can get an Elantra with nav. You can also get a Genesis without.

    do the other luxury cars offer standard Mrc, HIDs, leather, fold down rear seat and 40" of rear legroom for $45k or $519 mo. With 0 down? NO THEY DO NOT!

    Any car now days can be had with the same features as any lux car. I mean hell, you can get a self park option on a ford focus just like what was originally offered in a 70k dollar Lexus. It's now offered in a 23k sub compact.

    But what you've gotta ask yourself is the quality of which you want built around all these modern day gizmos. Do you want a bottom end ford (no disrespect to the current fords bc they actually are pretty nice) or do you want the quality of a premium luxury sedan.

    Re: $45000 car with no GPS?!?!

    Navigation will likely not be standard on any cars for a few years still. Not because it couldn't be done but there are many people
    that refuse to learn them or don't want to deal with what they believe to be an overly complex system. My parents refuse to buy
    a car with Nav in them (they own 2 SRXs), there was a couple of SRXs that they passed on because of the Nav being in them.
    Then there is also the idea of the more features in the car the more that can possibly go wrong / break. This mindset will need to
    disappear before we start seeing cars that have these features included by default. They need to market the car to the least
    sophisticated customer, which at this time this customer still includes those that don't want/like/need/care for Navigation.

    The XTS gained some standard features that were optional on the base DTS and the price is lower too.

    Not everyone wants a Nav system.

    However It should be a stand alone option at a reasonable price. I'm sure Fleet (Livery) buyers would like to have the Nav in a base model.
