Thanks Sal!

I've driven a 3.6 Platinum and a Vsport Platinum XTS. There isn't anything at the same price point as luxurious or spacious as the XTS Platinum. From that standpoint, it's a winner.

Regarding the performance, the 3.6 was fine but you could clearly feel the weight of the car. I never felt like there wasn't enough power in most situations, but it did lack torque for a vehicle of that size. The Vsport was completely different. I stomped on it a couple times at the stoplight; no wheel spin. It just hooked up and went. More power than I could use in most situations. I've driven the C7, Camaro SS and ATS; the XTS had more than enough performance for everyday driving.

Aside from the fact that it was FWD/AWD, the XTS is a very good car. Had it been RWD, which doesn't make a difference in 90% of driving situations, the world would be extremely happy about it.
