    I know, I hate to say it but the manual is the worst one that I have ever read, there are so many mistakes in it that it's unreal.

    This is one of the manuals that I have spent a lot of time reading and there is a lot of confusion in it. Mainly when it talks about using a certain feature it doesn't always explain what model xts the feature is on.
    One example is pushing the button down to lower the mirrors, they are not automatic.

    I never sais that I had the cornering lamps I stated that I didn't see any on my car. My past Cadillacs had them.

    That just supports my opinion, this is not a real Cadillac.

    Lights that illuminate in the direction you're turning, when you use the turn signals (or just turn the wheel in some cars).

    All my windows are 1 push automatic; up and down.

    Lizbill, I was referring to outside mirrors, not windows.

    To me, the cornering lights seem kind of old school anymore now that we have the adaptive headlights.

    Not even close. Adaptive headlights do nothing to illuminate the sides. Cornering lights come on when you activate the turn indicators and work well in slow, residential streets and driveways. I'll keep the old school, thanks.

    Actually, adaptive headlights predate cornering lights by 27 years. Tatra introduced the turning headlight in 1935. Cornering lights weren't introduced until '62 (by Cadillac).

    People.....Cadillac hasn't had cornering lights since they discontinued the DTS; only model with them for years. Doubt if they will ever come back....gone the way of the pull down trunk lid.
