    Default First Road Trip

    I bought a 2006 XLRV for the wife for her 50th a few weeks ago and I've been impressed. I have a 2011 CTSV with a lot of hp as my summer car and wanted her to have a V as well. We just took her V on a 400 mile trip and it drove fantastic. The power is decent but the handling and ride are top notch for a 10 year old car. I'm surprised at how quiet it is for a convertible. I took a pic of the Vs hanging out in the garage

    Quiet.

    Pretty much why I bought a hard top convertible.

    It's my first convertible if you don't count my first vehicle (Jeep CJ5) which beat the hell out of me
