Dissappointed, and surprised

2008 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 6M)
Disappointed, and surprised. Others don't agree. My father picked up the newly redesigned CTS last year as his third Cadillac. As I am a huge BMW fan, the 2008 CTS falls way behind. First, big improvement over the embarrassing interior design of the first CTS, but the looks deceived me. When I drove the car, I was disappointed in many things. The driver's seat is too tight and not appropriate for a luxury car. The dashboard looks beautiful, but its functionality is poor, and again too tight a fit. Acceleration is typical GM, jumpy with an intense torque if you don't have a gentle-minded foot. The dealer-installed rear bumper proximity beeper is downright annoying.
This car needs a dashboard thatís as clever to use as it looks. The passenger side front suspension had to be replaced in less than a year. The steering wheel is cheap. No auto- up/down window buttons on every door says this car IS cheap. Heated seats/buttons are poor. Very little justifies the price
