LOVE that picture. 700 miles is plenty of a break in under the circumstances. I especially love that you have the stupid gas mileage gauge pegged. Woot!

Mine was bad enough that I thought something was radically wrong. There is a TSB for this issue and the dealer ordered bolts that are *supposed* to not come loose again. It took 30,000 miles for it...

Clean the windshield. Thoroughly. Then clean the wiper blades with a rag or paper towel and get any crud off them. It might help.

The CTS-V is a far better car than the 335 in terms of performance. The CTS with the direct injection engine is worthy apples to apples competition. Don't forget to consider resale value.
