  1. Why does Cadillac hate V8 engines?

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    The CTS, especially the new coupe, is a knockout and if it had the LS3 or L99 V8 available, it would dominate the 6-cylinder competition (335, G37, Lexus etc). But for some reason Cadillac refuses to give us the V8 except for souped-up versions in the very costly V-series. It doesn't make any...
  2. Mileage too LOW ??

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    Looking at 1998 Deville with only 20,000 miles! Any ideas as to what to look for? Looks like tires have been replaced, but no other work is obvious. 12 year old car, 20,000 miles = 140 miles/month, if it didn't sit for 11 years. Let me know what you think.
  3. Still Happy with my V1 but needed a new tow vehicle...

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion

  4. How much engine vibration is too much?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Just bought the V about 5 days ago. I am curious if anyone can quantify how much vibration is too much. At a stoplight, I can feel the lope of the engine idling. Not sure if this is just natural, or an indication of worn motor mounts/tranny mounts. The car is a 2004 with ~29.7k miles. I have...

  13. STS in the UK

    Cadillac STS Forum 2005 through 2012
    Hi, I'm in the UK where Cadillac has never had the recognition it deserves - our motoring press being obsessed with german build quality, badge snobbery and "steering feel". In 2001 I bought a V8 northstar STS and ran it for four years, far and away the best car I've ever had. Worst thing I...
  14. Luxury Edition Fog Light Mod

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum 2010-2016
    My wife and I love everything about our new CBM Luxury FWD, except the lack of fog lights. I would have paid extra for these, but I don't think they are an option on the Luxury and we got our car off the lot. Do any of you know what would need to be done as far as wiring and a switch? It...

  19. Speed Sensitive Variable Assist worth it? - Luxury v/s Performance trim question

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum 2010-2016
    Hi folks, I cannot wait to trade in my Saturn SL2 for a new SRX. I am considering the Luxury trim with the add-on nav+backup camera option, however that brings me to the question of whether or not it is worth investing the additional $2000+ to get the Performance trim instead that also comes...
