    Do any of your XTS's seem to stutter at low speeds? Feels like it is cutting out or transmission doesn't know what gear it is in. I have never had this issue with any other cars. I have a friend who also has a 2013 XTS and it does it as well. Dealer says it is normal. I might be able to accept it if it were a $15K car but not on an expensive one.

    My early 13 XTS had the same hiccough. This was brought up last year and seemed to have been taken care with the overall software updates in April 2013. At that time, the dealer told me that the transmission software was also updated and it solved the problem on my 13. Now, on my new 14 XTS, when coming out of a turn, the transmission displays the same hesitance until it finds the right gear to shift into. What can I say......

    I have to agree with some of the posts here. I have a 2014 XTS Platinum and the ride is barely tolerable. In fact, my Chevy Trailblazer has a better ride. In comparison to the XTS, my wife's Acura RLX is extremely quiet and smooth riding.

    Does anyone have trouble with high idle? what I mean is car does not slow down as much as expected when I take my foot off the gas! Also the cruise control seems to allow +/- 4mph changes! Not particularly steep inclines either! It may actually be worse, but I chicken out at about 4mph change and apply brakes or throttle.

    I recently tested a new top of the line Impala, and a $30K more expensive XTS. I was far more impressed with the ride quality and the handling and interior styling of the Impala.

    I can understand the ride quality if you don't like to feel the road, but the interior? That I can't begin to understand how it could be considered nicer than a XTS platinum.

    I've got a 2014 CTS and its one of the most comfortable cars I've driven. Have you test driven another XTS or 2014 CTS to see if the harsh ride is just on your car?

    I actually test drove two of these when I bought mine, the first one I test drove had this knocking sound when I went over a speed bump so I asked for another car.
