I was walking up the block when I saw a brand new black 08 parked outside of my hotel (in downtown Chicago). The bright white LED reverse tail lights caught my eye, and I immediately recognized it as the new CTS. Upon close inspection, I was surprised to see that it was an Enterprise rental. I believe it was a 1SA (no DI badge, 17" rims", regular headlamps). Really awesome to see in the raw!!


Just thought I'd share.

Try living in Mich. I see one everytime I go somewhere. Hundreds of GM employees have been driving them for months.

We just got a few of them in, one of them is already in the hands of a happy customer.

I have only had a few minutes to look at one. I'll try to snap some pics later today.
I think they look great, especially the dash.
I don't really love the cluster, but I do love the dashboard and the audio controls.

The first shipment (arrived last Thursday) to Valley here in Rochester NY had 3 CTS's; two went to Enterprise and the other was the one I ordered back in mid-June. It's Crystal Red just like the pic above. With the DI, sound deadening and new interior it's a huge improvement. Fast, quiet and comfortable. The ultraview sunroof is really cool too. I still have the smile glued on my face. Valley is hoping for another shipment this week so they have one to show. LOL. I don't claim any special credit for the first customer delivery. My '05 CTS lease was up on August 3rd and I had to to something! :)

I don't know how many we have ordered, most of the units we are getting appear to be sold.
Some of them could be Enterprise units.
I am impressed by the looks for sure.
I need to go drive one!
Oh well, I am sure I'll get a chance soon enough.

I can't believe Enterprise is getting these as rental units!! I don't see any Bimmers, MB, Lexus, etc, on the Enterprise lots!! Not around here anyway!

We have people lining up to look at these things before we are even done prepping them.
I think we got 3 more yesterday. I saw some more in prep.
I suspect we'll keep getting these and selling them as fast as they come in.
I really dig this car.

If I got a call from one of the 5 dealerships I've called to see the car in person I'd probably order one.

Silver ext/black interior
AWD
3.6 DI
Sport suspension
high polish rims

I think it msrp's at around 39.

I think its a winner but I need to see it.

I just can't bring myself to order a car I've never seen in person.

Thanks for the heads up. Should be a winner.

The dealership here has no idea when they are getting any, I'm very dissappointed... They said they'd give me about 15k trade in on my 03...

We have a red one that is LOADED, man that car is gorgeous!
Makes me wish I had some money to spend on a car.
The nav system is unbelievable. The display raises up out of the dash, the features are great and there is no more nav disc. It looks like the car has a hard drive in it.
You can connect a USB device inside the console! (nav only)
There is also a remote player (ipod?) jack inside the console.
I haven't done much studying on this yet so I can't tell you how all the stuff works but I was really impressed.

Wow. That's provides my fix for the day. Thank you so much for posting those pictures.

If you happen to get a few shots of the red, I'm sure we'd all love to see it. Please tell me it has Ebony leather...
