2006 Cadillac STS-V 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl S/C 6A)
WOW, what a blast to drive. The 2006 Cadillac STS-V provides Corvette-like performance and seats four comfortably, and can carry four golf bags. The motor pulls like a jet engine all the way to redline, nice and linear. The brakes are fantastic, you can throw out the anchor over and over again without and noticable fade. Some people know what it is, many do not. But the face on the guys with the M3s, Mustangs, and 911s are funny after they get waxed by a Cadillac. My only complaint is the brake dust on the wheels, they should offer the competition grey like on the 2006 Corvette. It would hide some of the dust. This is a superior car to anything I have driven. Great Job Cadillac & GM!
The engine is very docile around town and goes like a banshee when asked to. Also the brakes do what they are asked to do when they are asked without any bad side effects. The XM radio, and the navigation system are a real plus, they finish an already fantastic product.
Give the option of getting argent grey or black wheels to hide the brake dust. A heads-up display would be nice. I also would like a shift light when in tap shift mode. When you hit the redline, the fuel shuts off and the car noses over, unlike a Corvette which pulses on the rev-limiter. I don't drive in the tap shift mode, just Sport Mode.
