New 2017 CT6.... first impressions
2017 Cadillac CT6 Luxury AWD, 3.6L with Enhanced Vision & Comfort Package, Active Chassis Package and Stellar Black Metallic, Jet Black interior
I've owned this car for almost three weeks and for the most part, its first 600 miles have been fine with two exceptions. I am hoping that they can be resolved.
First, the auto-stop feature has an annoying stutter and the car jerks into motion when it starts up in intersections. For that reason, I have to remember to disable the feature every time I start the car and head out on the roads. Not sure if there is something wrong with the car, or it's the quality that we have to settle for these days. It's going back to be checked out.
Second, I'm wondering about my decision to order the Active Chassis Package because of the rough ride that these Goodyear Touring 245/40 R20 tires are producing. It's going back to the dealer so the tires can be checked for roundness, balance or defects. There doesn't seem like any difference between Touring or Sport mode changes. If Cadillac sent the car out with a defective tire, that would actually be good news, though unfortunate. Removing these wheels and tires and getting 19" 245/50's installed would cost over $3000.00 and not sure if it would be a better ride. Test drives didn't give me any clues that the CT6 is a rough rider.
In spite of these two issues, it's a nice looking car with nice features. If I could get it to ride a bit smoother and not jerk at intersections, I would like this CT6 a whole lot more. I've had several Cadillacs and they've all been great cars.
