CTS reviews are in.....

I've read three reviews of the new CTS now, from C&D, R&T and Automobile.

The Automobile review was the harshest.

I didn't realize GM had moved the car into five series size and heft - one rag's tag line was "five series value for three series money".

It's a nice car, but it's way too pimped looking, inside and out for my taste, however, I hope it does well in the marketplace.

The last CTS was already 5-series in size and weight. This one is even heavier than a 5-series, because BMW actually went to the effort to make the 5-series light.

It was 3 series in price, but it was always 5 series in size. 4000 pounds though . . . that's a lot. The interior is nice.
