I hate teaser shots. Just show the damn car already.

I can see a line up of wheel chairs and walkers now...

We did rent a car but I chose national because I have all my free days and status with them.

It was slim pickings, unfortunately, and I just took the new Altima, which is actually very very nice for the price point.

I'm surprised at how far technology and creature comforts are becoming basics on econocars. Fantastic.

But yeah, didn't see any nice cars at National -- I don't think they even have any to begin with.

I'd drive a CTS or an ATS without any complaint. I better go buy myself some mobility aids.

I'm not saying Caddy doesn't have a ride or two I'd enjoy tearing up the asphalt with I'm just commenting on their customer base. I see 75+ driving new Caddies all the time.

Love the CTS-V 2-door styling. The CUE system looks neat but I hear it has a lot of problems with lagging and isn't nearly as responsive and snappy as the ads show it to be.

agreed and agreed, lady i work with drives a CTS coupe and I passed a new XTS on my commute recently.  I wouldn't mind having either in my driveway, probably the best-looking American line of cars.

Oh I'm sure there are still plenty of geriatric Caddy die-hards, however I've seen a lot of my generation showing Cadillac love. Several of my friends have said that the Cadillac CTS Coupe is an attainable dream car for them. That's saying something.

Also, I personally am not a fan of the 2 door, much preferring the sedan. The rear deck is too tall and slab sided for the entire rear half of the car.

The Cadillac design language is growing old on me. I loved it when they first introduced it on the CTS, but it seems a change would do it good.

I'm a fan of the CTS. It's a nice looking vehicle and stands apart from the pack.

they're definitely softening some of the harsh corners that were so unique, but the changes seem like refinements moving toward the lines in their Ciel concept. .

Actually, that car looks pretty good.
