****IN THIS THREAD****

Oh my, how Cadillac has lost its way!

Seriously, I'm sick of all the turds heaping thread upon thread ripping Cadillac.

So if anyone actually likes what Cadillac is doing, and building, please feel free to hang in here. Old boat trolls will no doubt speak their minds, too. Whatever.

I love the cars, like the move to NYC and don't mind what little I've seen of the ad campaign.

....oh, so this forum is only for people who do not own a Cadillac?

I don't know what you are on, but it might be time to cut them in half, you can't seem to handle a full dose.

Cut him some slack. It couldn't have been easy for him to admit being tiny.

And who decides who the tiny few are? You? I will defend your right to speak but don't disrespect the "old boat trolls" who have no reason to be here except to help other owners. Did i stutter or was that pretty clear?
The tiny few who don't feel the need to douche themselves of their hatred for late model Cadillacs every chance they get.

You can be a fan of old boat Cadillacs and not be a troll. But there are plenty who feel that old Cadillacs, even though they allowed Cadillac to become uncompetitive, should be recreated. Whatever, paint yourself however you like.

Bottom line, some of us are sick of the constant complaining about Cadillac on things that are matter of opinion. Antiquated ones, at that.

And as for belonging in here, I was referring strictly to this thread.

Not these forums, in general...

I don't dislike the current Cadillacs. I think their design language is current and in keeping with the fashion of the times. It's even distinctive, within the limits imposed by various government regulations and fuel efficiency standards. The CTS is a very handsome car, and from what I've seen, the CT6 will look at least as good. Now, I freely admit I much prefer the older Cadillacs, in terms of looks, style, comfort, room, etc. I've never wanted a German car, nor do I want an American version of same. However, this seems to be what the market wants and expects in an uplevel car, so roll with it.

My major problem with the new Cadillacs is their pricing structure. Put bluntly, they're not worth the price. Whack ten grand off the bottom line, and we can start to talk. As it stands, the content-to-price ratio is waaaay out of balance, and not in a good way. Cadillac originally made it to the top by offering a car that was as good or better than the competition, but at a much lower price. They offered a compelling combination of style, content, and price that the competition couldn't or wouldn't match.

I realize some, perhaps many, will disagree with my views. Very well. But if I'm willing to tolerate their views, however much I may disagree, I jolly well expect the same consideration! To tell someone with whom you disagree essentially to sit down and shut up is flat unacceptable.

I propose we agree to disagree, and leave the subject lie.

Ah, don't be too hard on Jim; he gets grumpy sitting in his Lincoln waiting for his customers to show up!

no - I think he is saying you MUST love the new "Eurolacs" -
small - 6 or 4 cylinder motor - with the harsh ride suspension -
donk wheels/rubberband tires - and angular look -
or you don't belong here -

REAL Cadillacs - you know - big - V8 - soft riding - luxurious -
are a thing of the past -

so - too bad - suck it up -
get back in line - and stop complaining - right Jim?

I remember when "Cadillac" used to be the HIGH STANDARD
other cars were compared to -

sadly - those days are also a thing of the past -

The real question (to paraphrase the Kate Walsh CTS commercials) is did it touch you....
very good point, TulsaVic, so I thought about it with regard to my own transportation. My DeVille touches me every time I look at it. Heck, even my Trek bicycle touches me. The F150 and Grand Marquis, not so much.
