This is not a warning about the car, it is amazing. It is a warning about potential accident hazard. I have had it 5 days at this posting, and have nearly had 2 accidents, however I was not involved. It appears other car drivers are slowing down too fast when they look at this amazing car and they both came close to being rear ended.
I also quite often come out of a store and find people around the vehicle taking photos with cell phones and peering into windows to see interior design, I think Cadillac should supply window cleaner and paper towel with each new CTS-V Coupe.
Sorry folks nothing but great things to say so far, this is one vehicle GM has made that ROCKS.

UPDATE: if you have to worry about cost of gas, this baby isn't for you. right now i have to fill it every couple of days. Almost took it from Toronto to Sarnia for a run but was afraid I wouldn't make it on one tank of gas. besides there was chance of rain and snow so I left it parked and took the Hybrid Escalade instead.
WINTER TIRES: GM and other aftermarket dealers are recommending Pirelli's, but I have GM engineering looking into if they will fit on existing rims, as I am not sure you can downsize rims due to brake sizes which is the usual way of adding a bulkier tire. Will update when know.
Also signed up for the CTS driver training at Mosport June 22nd that should be fun, includes workshop and track driving.
