  1. Remote Starter not a standard feature - Install Run Around

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum 2010-2016
    When purchasing my SRX last month I was quite surprised that it was not equipped with a remote starter. Disappointed, but the dealership referred me to their "preferred" vendor to have the starter installed. I made the appointment, dropped the car off, went back to pick it up to be told that...
  2. An old dog found his way home.

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    I bought back the first car I was handed down, when I turned 16. My dad bought the car around 1997, when a local gas station that sold cars, was selling the land. They auctioned off all of the cars, and my dad was the only one to bid on this 1983 DeVille. He just bid on it for fun, and...

  10. Drove a loaner '10 SRX - My observations

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    I took my '08 V6 RWD in for a dent repair, and got a new '10 for the day. Noticed some interesting differences in the newer model. - Styling is a personal thing, but the '10 makes my old SRX look like a slab-sided refrigerator. The lines are really crisp and modern, and none of those hang-on...
  11. So my Wife drove the V today for the first time.

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    When I wanted to buy the car, it sure was not a popular idea around here... hence my handle. Promises of sharing were made... in hopes of convincing her otherwise. ;) Have had it for awhile, but she has yet to want to drive it. When i brought it home, she liked the styling, the color, the...
  12. Finally Drove the CTSV, Feedback below, Now I just need to strike a deal

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I honestly like the car alot. Its so smooth and comfortable in the ride quality. Power is great and I love the looks. The handling was good and much better than a C63 or E63 but still no M5 beater NO WAY. So all the Youtube and reports saying the CTS beat the M5 was only on a closed race track...

Mine is a 1993 Deville, and his is a 1999 Eldorado Touring Coupe (ETC) in Crimson Pearl Metallic with a tan interior.

  15. Brakes were fixed..and squeaking again by the time I drove home!

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    I know the squeaking brakes have been addressed here in the past. But I just about laughed myself silly right out of the car. Months ago when I brought up the horrendous squeaking with the service manage he said it was 'normal' because of the brake material. Uh, OK, whatever. So I get them...
  16. Drove the BMW GT

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    I will not change my opinion about the appearance: it's ugly! Here a small review Exterior: let's not talk about that... Interior: as any BMW, good quality material, but no breathtaking design. I like it better than the current 5 series, and way better than the X6s cockpit. didn't play much...
  17. drove home in the slush tonight

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Yesterday our high temperatures were in the 70's, today we were about freezing and it snowed all afternoon. I went to church today at 1:30 and it was 32 degrees and snowing, by the time I left at 7:30 it was 7:30 and still snowing. My prediction was that the ground was warm and all of the snow...

    I'm coming from BMW M3's. 2 coupes and currently an 08 sedan, manaul. My current M3 is an incredible overall car, however I now have 2 kids under 2 so can really use the extra space. I cannot even take my 2 month old daughter in my car with my 2 year old, both seats do not fit :( Also, the...
  19. Drove the Autobahn, wishing for my V2

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    So I spent a week in Germany and rented a BMW. My first time ever driving a BMW. The 2nd day it starts throwing a CEL and says that engine power has been reduced. The 3rd day the engine turns off while I am traveling about 50mph. Not a nice situation! Don't even get me started on AVIS Germany...
  20. Drove an '88 Town Car, luxury from my era.

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    So I met up with some friends yesterday for lunch across town, they both have Town Cars, one is a triple black '96 Signature Series and the other is a champagne colored '88. I rode in the '96 and drove the '88. I always liked the way those '80s Town Cars looked. They had the monumental...
