2010 Cadillac CTS V Sedan Hp
The stick-shift CTS-V coupe that we had in the office recently was great fun, but the V sedan is certainly no slouch either. And its increased practicality almost makes up for its decreased sexiness (although I think the sedan might look a bit meaner). That lovely exhaust note and the mountains of horsepower are quick to bring a smile. The paddle buttons to manually control the transmission aren't all that satisfying, but when left in regular mode or bumped over to the Sport setting, the automatic trans does very nice work indeed. The steering is excellent, too, and I love the optional Alcantara-covered wheel.

The Cadillac CTS-V is a world-class sport sedan that is plenty capable of standing up to the German competitors from BMW's M division and Mercedes-Benz's AMG unit. I had driven a manual-transmission CTS-V coupe just days prior to getting in this automatic-equipped sedan, so my attention was immediately focused on the gearbox. While it's not offensive in its operation, the Cadillac transmission can't really hold a candle the BMW seven-speed dual-clutch automatic and the Mercedes-Benz seven-speed automatic. Both of those transmissions offer faster, more aggressive downshifts with better rev-matching. The result is that the BMW M3 and Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG have smoother drivelines with a more fluid, engaging feel. Of course, if you prefer the Cadillac's monstrous power and distinctive looks, the answer is simply to buy the manual transmission, which is fabulous.

Gorgeous late-summer weather and two Cadillac CTS-Vs. A week such as this should never be taken for granted. Like everyone else, I found myself wondering which body style and which transmission I'd prefer. No doubt, the coupe is the winner in terms of sex appeal and novelty. It just makes you smile as you walk up to it in a parking lot. In contrast, the four door might get lost in a parking lot, at least one in southeast Michigan, where six-cylinder CTS sedans are a dime a dozen. Of course, that sort of anonymity will appeal to some, so it really depends on the driver. The same can be said of the transmission choice. The automatic is a bit slow and cold, but it's very refined and is likely a more logical match than the stick shift considering the nature of the car and the massive V-8's relatively narrow powerband. I'd still take the manual, but the driver who wants a luxury car first and a sports car second will likely be better off with the automatic.

It's rather difficult to focus on interior trim when you're eyes are locked on the digital speedometer display-it doesn't take much movement from your right foot to send the numbers spinning quicker than reels on a Vegas slot machine.

The V-series is the best thing to happen at Cadillac since this brand introduced V-8 engines 95 years ago. The thumping idle and the lusty lunge forth after a brush of the throttle really tickle my gizzard. Any family man harboring closet Corvette dreams will find deliverance with each handshake of the CTS-V's suede-skinned steering wheel. This is a BMW M3 with a bigger back seat and a more vibrant heart beat. The fact that there's only one camshaft lurking under this Cadillac's hood makes it all the better when you blow off the lame Lincolns, the smartass Shelbys, and the prissy Porsches that get in your way.

GM's Bob Lutz offered to race a CTS-V against anyone with a production sedan and he found several takers. The event took place at Monticello Motor Club in Monticello, New York on a very nice 4.1-mile track.

A few weeks ago Bob Lutz challenged anyone with a stock high-performance four-door sedan to take on the CTS-V at Monticello Motor Club. Cadillac received more than120 entries, but the preliminary list has been whittled down to onlyseven challengers.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION
Summary
This defect can affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. General Motors LLC (GM) notified the agency on July 2, 2014 that they are recalling 554,328 model year 2003-2014 Cadillac CTS vehicles manufactured August 16, 2001, to April 28, 2014, and 2004-2006 Cadillac SRX vehicles manufactured March 20, 2003, to August 11, 2006. In these models, the weight on the key ring and/or road conditions or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine.
Consequences
If the key is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy if the vehicle is involved in a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Remedy
GM will notify owners, and dealers will install two key rings and an insert in the key slot or a cover over the key head on all ignition keys, free of charge. The recall began on September 15, 2014. Owners may contact Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006. GM's number for this recall is 14172.
