A very sensible decision, Baza, take no notice of the hooligans on here.

Big, fat, noisy things. That's both Americans and their cars.

My (limited) experience of average cars in America, taking pickups out of the equation, is the vast majority are Euro/Jap shitboxes.

My mother in law has a DTS which she lets me use whenever i visit.

4.6 V8.  Less than 300 ponies.  Crap handling.  Slightly smaller than a british house.

The aircon works though.

Wrong wheel drive too :o The last STS is more than capable with the 3.6 lump and very nice with the V8  ;)

Ah, ok, my mistake, I thought it was a reworking of the older STS ;)

RWD doesn't help the looks though :D

The crappy suspension makes booting it a squeeky bum moment.  You could live, you could be thrown in a hedge.  You just dont know ;D

The stupid rear overhang won't help either... It's traditional Cadillac though, long floppy boat that will eat miles doing the double nickel ;)

Looking underneath one, the STS seemed to be a clear relative of the VE Commodore, which makes it most unCaddy like to drive 8)
