People are assuming a lot about the STS V. It may wheel hop, shift lazily (it is aimed at the luxury driver) and it may have the rear end that was supposed to be made for the 69 less HP CTS V.
I wouldn't criticize CTS V drivers for being rude. A non CTS V driver did say that if we had "serious bank", we wouldn't have bought a CTS V. Unforntunately since he is 18, most of us probably have 3-4 times more "serious bank" then he does now.
Notice that most ************ didn't criticize the STS V. We just don't see paying $25k more for a car that has a few more useless options.
I wouldn't also comment about the reviews the CTS V got if I was a STS owner. Even the STS finished 6 out of 8 cars a few months back (the Malibu like interior was one reason).
And the CTS V has plenty of luxury. Please stay away from Corvettes and simiiar cars if you think the V is not luxurious. The rumble from the LS7 might give you guys a migrane headache while it'll give most ************ a bunch of smiles.
The performance quotes are almost a joke. First the STS V is a better performer car than the CTS V, until I mentioned the track. All of the sudden the STS V driver wouldn't go to the track so it doesn't matter. Then it all depends how the CTS V driver controls wheel hop. Which is it guys?
And yes the CTS V did kill the S4, even on British TV where they seem to be pro European.
The CTS V wasn't built to be like the Cadillac's before it. The CTS series has changed Cadillac around financially. I know I wouldn't have considered a Cadillac if it wasn't for the CTS.
C&D doesn't know crap about cars unless it says Toyota, Honda or Nissan on it. At least with the CTS V I don't have to worry about looking at another car from a different company that looks like my car.
