    I also have a question. Why are there at least 13 recalls for the XTS? Some are just software updates, but the door handle ones are just plain insane.

    One last question...
    Who can I blame for the oil drain plug location? I mean right over the exhaust? Not very well thought out.

    If you think that is not a user friendly place, guess where the sticker with the rpo codes is.
    This is not my car but one at the dealer had the trunk components out, while I was there.
    Thanks again and WOW - I had a look in my trunk, that's certainly not that easy to get at it. Hope all dealers know the spot when they need such info.

    Re: xts assembler

    Rarely do we need to check the SPID label ... only when there is a question if the codes that the parts catalog has associated with the VIN are correct or not

    the SPID label ends up being the official and final word on how the car was built

    edit: the SPID is probably most commonly checked for the paint code. (see this thread)

    Re: xts assembler

    I'm curious, based on your gut, what's the most popular ext color coming down the line? Interior color? Trim level?

    I'd like to commend you and your coworkers at Oshawa Assembly. I took delivery of my Platinum XTS two weeks ago and I am very pleased at the quality, fit and finish of my car. This is my fifth Cadillac, the other four were STS models. While all of them were really nice cars, the XTS is a step up in luxury and roominess. Keep up the good work!

    Thanks Glad to hear it! I love the XTS, one day I was on "Car start" you know, making sure everything works after the car is build, and the XTS really is somethin else.. I sat in a raven black Platinum that was loaded! black/white interior with black suede headliner, Electric sunshades, Heated front/rear seats, A/Cseats, Heated steering wheel, LCD Cluster, Heads up, CUE!...fantastic vehicle.

    The plant really does take them seriously, after production they go to a secondary building where Cadillac experts go over them with a fine tooth comb to make sure everything is just PERFECT, hell, if a gap in the door panel is +- 1/2 mil it gets refit!

    but anywhoo, glad you like the car! makes me feel good knowing someone enjoys something that I helped build

    You described the equipment on my XTS down to,the last detail. Mine may have been the car you were sitting in. Small world!
