I just built a CTS at Cadillac.com with the 3.6L and a 5-sp manual. I thought the manual transmission wasn't available for the new engine?
I agree, you're NEVER going to get the same kind of handling out of a FWD car, if that's what you're after. I drove a TL and pushed it pretty hard. I think they've done all they can with the suspension on that car. Maybe they should've tried something like the ATTS that they put in the last generation of the Prelude, but it probably isn't as reliable as it should be anyway.QTwo said:Elvis,
I wholeheartedly agree on the TL. A sweet car with an absolutely beautiful interior. The technology is first rate and I understand the stereo system can't be beat. My current GSR 4dr has 212K on the odo so I can vouch for the quality and longevity of the products. But................
I have to go rear wheel drive. The dynamics are so much better and sporty than a front wheel car will ever have. Even the TL's limited slip doesn't solve the problem. Unfortunately, terminal understeer will always be in the mix. My GSR plows so much on an autocross course that I gave up because of diminishing returns.
If the TL came out in rwd or even 4wd, there would be one in my driveway already. Until Acura (or Honda) comes around, I can't take the plunge again.
