Glowing review for the STS in the latest Car and Driver. It doesn't appear to be on the website yet, at least not that I could find.

Their complaints: they found the steering to be non-communicative, a criticism that surprsied me given my recent experience in a CTS which in my opinion had excellent steering feel - no, not a sports car where the wheel dances in your hands, but definitely in a league with the last-generation 540i, for instance. The other complaint was that the ride was firm. Well, duh, I say. It's a sporting kind of a car, remember? Besides, they praised its ability to soak up the bumps, so I don't know where they're giong with that.

Aside from that, they gave nice praise to all other aspects of the car.

The picture is coming clear from this round of car book reviews: the STS looks like a total winner. Woo hoo!

Now if Cadillac would just put a little more info on the website. I'd like to be able to play with configuring and pricing one, for instance. The reviews keep talking about the fact there are many, many different configurations available and I want to go explore 'em!

Does anyone know when they're set to hit the dealers? I read that production started 6/1 . . . . I just gotta see one, particularly because I have the distict impression that this is a car whose charms are not fully conveyed in photos.

'stormer: where do you live that you get to see so many STS's -- I'm guessing Michigan, perhaps the Detroit area? None so far here in Chicago, and i'm downtown where there are loads of expensive cars on the streets.

THIS RAISES ANOTHER POINT: guys, put some information in your profiles. It's easy to do, and always useful to know at least (1) where a guy lives, and (2) what he drives. Take a minute. Fill in your profile infomation. It's easy to do, and it benefits everyone.

I live about an hour north of Detroit. My father works in Detroit and he saw the new STS 2 days before the Official unveiling of the car!! I have also seen about 5 05 vettes, my neighbor had one parked in his drive way for a night a couple months ago. One of the new vettes I saw was a test mule, it was getting off the highway. That is one thing I love about Michigan, you see tons of brand new, not even on the showroom cars. When I was leaving the NAIAS I saw a Dodge Magnum mule at a stop light. I dont see nearly as many new cars as my father does, since he works in Detroit. I tried convincing him to get a camera phone when his company got new phones but he didnt want to pay the expensive premium they charged. Oh yeah, my neighbor that had the 05 vette in his drive way, also had an H2 SUT parked there too back in May........ :D
