But to tell you the truth, a 2010 Cadillac DTS rides beautifully. It's so smooth. I make fun of a friend of mine for owning one but when I got in it I almost fell asleep and the acceleration is pretty good for a car that big. And you can save a lot of money, I think a barely used one will go for $50k.

There is a BIG difference between a 1962 Coupe de Ville and a 2011 CTS Coupe. Cadillac has made a major change in direction the last few years,

You can get a Cadillac Station Wagon (CTS) with LSD now but not a 335

Yup, and the 3.6DI version is lucky to run with a 328 wagon or 528 in the 1/4 mile, while getting worse mileage and handling worse. I'll take a little inside wheelspin, or buy an Audi, before a regular CTS. The V is obviously an awesome line of cars but the regular CTS? Also-ran rental fleet material. Just because it's better than it used to be doesn't mean it's competitive with other cars on the market. Just like the Cruze, people are buying them here because they're American. That's a great reason to buy, but it doesn't really speak to how good it is as a car. An American-made car seems to only need to be about 85% as good as a foreign rival to sell well these days, which is a good thing because it seems like in the '90's they were selling when they were 50% as good. More demanding consumers these days...
