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...

It is not modded in any way (yet).

I don't know how long it would go, but based on this analysis, 10k is not out of the question. I think if that were my mileage, I would try and get an analysis...

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.
