Just bought it and love it. I also have a 2005 CTS-V and compare the handling of this car favorably to the - V. I find power ample but not breathtaking. I note that some car mags complain about the tranny Sport mode logic, but I find it doing just about the same thing, at the same time, as I'd be doing with my -V manual Tremec. I'm 6'1" and find the seating a bit cramped at the knees but still quite comfortable touring. I'll have a hard time chosing between the wagon or the -V for a trip.
- exterior design; Red color - handling - Driver info center/nav display - cargo room (compared to the -V) - Mileage (compared to the -V)
- Car should have a hand-actuated parking brake lever a la Corvette - speedo display selection buttons are very, and I mean VERY, poorly placed - "universal" garage opener is fubar, won't program (it was frustrating on my -V too) DIC iPod operation logic is odd; should emulate iPod
