at least my friend is, I bought mine recently.
He wants a sporty sedan, nice looks, some balls under the engine and a decent interior, and under $50K, new.
We looked high and low in the domestic market. Nothing, Absolutely nothing. I tried to give him some used options in domestic, but there are only 2 cars that fit his bill, G8 or a CTS-V. About 7 or so that are imported.
Took my first ride in a Genesis R-Spec. Good Lord. Now if that don't get your blood pumping. Fast, smooth, nice interior, and did I mention fast! Sleeper alert.
Moral of the story, we need more options if we want to take away the Infiniti/BMW/Merc owners. So far, they are just swapping consumers while we stand by.
Brown on the outside with yellow leather interior, NOW we are talking...
A little gold plating on the emblems, wheel lip mouldings and the license plate bracket. Yeah, buddy. What better way to get some attention at the Walmart parking lot.
I have not until now, but thanks for thinking of me at night though.
There is a difference between domestic and US made, but I would not expect you to know the difference.
And thanks for contributing to the post as you always do.
I totally agree. The CTS-V is the only domestic sedan capable of taking on anything sedan from Europe - and winning. Plus. The CTS-V is ever so much less expensive to operate - ever check an oil/filter change on a Mercedes? Yeah - yeah. I know BMW does that for you free - until 50,000 miles. What about AFTER 50,000 miles?
The Cadillac dealer in Odessa TX has 5 CTS-V sedans, choice of color with/without the Recardo seats and one CTS-V coupe. Where's the CTS-V wagon?
I'm a fan of the V, despite knowing someone very very close that had one lemon lawed during their first attempt, but, they are very expensive for what you get. Still has interior issues. Very cheap interior. People are reporting some issues with the new ones.
But for balls to the walls sedan performance, it's surely tops for the domestic market.
I'm still working on him to get one so I can borrow it!
And there's another one on the way. About a half year's supply, I'd guess.
He's not an electric type of guy, or a hybrid type of guy. But I would definitely take a Tesla myself. I'm not an electric buy myself, but something about that car that just gets me.
