    With less than 2500 made 2006 - 2009 with less than 100 in 2009, I agree. Even in car crazy Southern California, I know of only one person who owns a STS-V and I just met him at a meet last month. All the shows and meets I go to, I am usually the only STS-V among the other V's.

    Anyone catch the silver DTS on Thursday's episode of Sunny?








    It even has those obnoxiously big PA inspection stickers that were on my Seville.

    Did I read it wrong, I thought the number quoted was for February 10, 2010 (and while still a low number, maybe not near as low as this post suggests for the year).

    The problem of the DTS is that its FWD. No one who buys a car of this class want shitty FWD. I hope they switch it back to RWD in the next version.

    Most car owners don't know if their car is RWD, FWD, or powered by the souls of garden gnomes.

    Re: Cadillac sells only 197 DTS's in 2010

    Does this portent a return to the psyche of the early 1980's when we were told by the auto press, and other opinion makers, that front wheel drive was far superior and would be universally adopted by car makers because of the overall inferiority of rear wheel drive? This was the case when we bought my wife's Peugeot 505S which had rear wheel drive and was denigrated by "Car and Driver" for this fact. Living in Southern California and not having to deal with ice and snow I preferred rear wheel drive .... but, NO!, said the powers that be, it was to be FWD or nothing in the future!

    Well, considering most of the best selling automotibles since the '80's were FWD, I guess they were right.

    When the big three still had over 80% of US market share, most of their vehicles were RWD.


    Outside the 20-25% of car buyers who call themselves enthusiasts and can actually tell the difference, it doesn't actually mean anything. Its just a trend that shifts back and forth.

    Most of the "other" branded cars that took away that 80% were/are FWD.
