I replaced a 2000 Lincoln LS that I was getting tired of with a new Cadillac CTS-V. I looked at a new LS momentarily. Boring! Nothing really changed from the 2000 model. The CTS- V is definitely not boring! It delivers great performance and driving pleasure. It has a great sound system. I'm getting spoiled by the navigation system. Best of all, it makes me feel like a kid again.
Its performance and exterior styling is great. The transmission and shifting are great with the exception of "skip shift" feature.
Lose the skip shift. I don't want to buy a manual transmission and then be forced to shift! Besides, the skip shift is a safety issue. Don't know how many times I've had to downshift to get out of way of something when the skip shift forced me into 4th.
