Buy A Radar Detector — I like to categorize cars in three ways: practical (Camry, Accord), show-off (S550, Escalade) and toys (Mustang, Camaro). I was looking for something of all three, but leaning more towards the toys category. I figure everyone has to drive, might as well have fun while doing so. For my purposes, this is a great car at a manageable price point. Fast, great brakes, great handling, nice enough and practical enough. I wish it was a little nicer and a little more practical, but with this motor, suspension and brakes, I can't complain too much. The gas mileage is abysmal, but I knew what to expect before purchasing. Fun? Yes. Family car? Sort of. For everyone? Definitely not. Too much power? No such thing.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 556 HP, 551 LB/FT, Magnetorheological shocks

Cons: Not very refined for a "luxury" car.  Gas mileage like a dump truck.

2012 Cadillac CTS-V RWD Review
A great car that is both providing experience of both a Mean Sports Car and Luxury from Cadillac of past. Additionally, these cars are actually affordable in comparison to their true European counterparts.
