Had a Bmw M3 before this and have had multiple "hot rods." The build quality of the CTS-V is pathetic, as is the handling, even with the "handling package." I've had it in the shop a ton. I even got so tired of dealing with it that I'd wait until I had a few warranty items "saved up" so as to avoid more frequent visits. The depreciation is also horrible compared to a comparable foreign model- do not buy!
