Cadillac Complaint - Imposed speed limit - 2006 cadilac STS
MALTA, NEW YORK -- The 2006 cadillac V8 luxury performance optioned car is limited to 108 mph by the PCM. The lame excuse given by cadillac is the tires are only rated for 110 mph. now lets clear up one thing. I don't normally cruise around at 100+mph but i was being harassed by 3 punks in a clunker. the STS accelerated quickly away from the problem but imagine my surprise when the purps quickly caught me to continue their intimidation.
My major complaint is why does my $52000.00 performance sedan have such cheap tires installed that it has to be governed. the car handles very well and would handle fine at a higher speed. secondly, the car was marketed as a performance car to performance minded people. there was never a mention of an artifically low speed limit in the advertising, the operators manual, or by the sales staff. this is fraud. or, at the very least, deceptive. better tires and honesty on the part of cadillac would go a long way to correcting this problem
