    Re: Sound off, V-Sport owners! Good or bad.

    I invested hours trying to find some kind of specs on what was necessary to clear the brakes before I bought the Platinum Flux 18" wheels from Tire Rack. Their support person assured me they would fit using a source I couldn't find ... or I could return them. Obviously, they fit and the nice thing about the 245-50R 18" setup with these wheels is that there is less than a 3% difference in the overall diameter and none on the "footprint" so that there was no noticeable effect on the speedo or the turning. The benefit of the 18" setup is that there is 30% more sidewall than with the 20". I also tried running a little less air pressure, but get the same warning below 35 psi. Ahh technology!

    Re: Sound off, V-Sport owners! Good or bad.

    Just to give an update: I did drive a 2017 Lincoln MKZ 3.0tt, AWD Black Label over the weekend. It was nice, refined, and maybe the quietest interior I've ever been in (I've been in a S-Class Mercedes). However, I felt a little cramped in it as I was afraid I would. Not so much with head or leg room, but with hip room and the side bolstering on the seatback was made for someone a little more.... ahem.... "fit" than myself. Overall, the cavernous interior of the XTS V-Sport that I drove won me over, and I'm still interested in getting one. Finding one close may be an issue though.

    2014 XTS Vsport Plat (Black) - Still love it, here's my complaints: The 20" wheels are an issue, they're soft, and I have already had to have 1 repaired whcih got cracked from a deep pothole. The rear view camera is dog-poop, but no one will refute that, it's just a cheap choice GM ran with at the time. My current issues may not be the car (could just be time and wear), but I have a transmission 'shudder' now which is to say when trying to accelerate from say a steady 60mph and then jump to 80mph+ the car judders and stutters as the horsepower kicks in. Almost feels like the tranny is trying to figure out which gear to use and violently rocks teh car forward-back as it finds its groove. Same behavior if i try to got from say a steady 80mph to 100mph+. My last current issue is the rear RSE; dual screen entertainment. Sometimes (not always) the 2nd screen behind the passenger seat will glitch and display nothing but a blueish hue and some static lines. I think its a sync issue, but no idea how to address it (if you know, would appreciate the advice!). Other than that, I still enjoy the ride.

    I've driven that car.
    It's nice, but you're definitely in a "cockpit" compared to an XTS, which feels quite spacious by comparison.

    As I have stated before that Cadillac Customer service did not recommend changing from the OEM wheel set up.

    Wow, a month at the dealer. I wouldn't say that's acceptable at all. Question, are you an aggressive driver, and/or did you ride her hard? I have not heard of any problems with the tranny or torque converter (unlike the CT6).
