Mercedes also has similar problems in some models? Uneven panel gaps ? Luxury brand cars never had those and budget brand cars got rid of them a couple of decades ago.
Yes. A quick look at the specifications published show that despite the slight smaller Cadillac engine, the Cadillac produces more horsepower and torque to power a less massive vehicle with more interior passenger space. But the Hyundai gives a floaty ride. This is supposed to be a good thing. Hyundai's new sub brand is supposed to be a 1976 Cadillac Sedan DeVille?
I think she's just calling it like she sees it. Here's something to consider: I was at Cadillac House in NYC over the summer and talking to one of the execs who works there. He mentioned that, to his dismay, Cadillacs are still built to the same standard as a Chevy, and I think he's correct. Hyundai, like Toyota, figured out that a high end brand is where you show off the best you can do. Cadillac, unfortunately, still seems to be obtuse to this fact, and I think it's really hurting them. People who shop this segment can be very discerning, and this test is revealing about why they often shop elsewhere.
Hey! Crazy idea! Discussion! Forum! :soapbox::doh:He posts the article for discussion!
The G90 did not ride like a float/boat 1976 Cadillac, it delivered the type of ride preferred by most buyers in this segment.Yes.

In my not so humble opinion, some automobile critics have lost their minds.
And the CT6 is built at Hammtramck, which never seems to get its act together. My guess is it's probably more the fault of the process, the brand quality manager, and not as much blame on the assembly workers. My ELR was built there, and it's about 98% excellent (something that could hardly be said about the 2014 ELRs that I experienced.) But it has flaws where something like a Lexus would be perfect, like the passenger side door skin doesn't fit exactly right to the body at the bottom, and the headliner in the back (next to the rear glass) wasn't pressed into its clips, left just hanging there. When I was able to fix it in 15 seconds by punching it up with my hand, and it has stayed ever since, you know there's something wrong in their QC process. And oh yeah, a loose 12V battery cable disabled the car once.I watched Jodi's review thought it was spot on, GM still can't get their transmissions right and I see their fits on the dealers lot, you can tell no time is given to fit the gaps as the caddy rolls down the line beside a Chevy. It's a shame because the XTS is one nice car that doesn't get the added time to make it stand out from the rest that roll down the line in Oshawa. The CT6 just more of the same.
