The dealers service mgr and the owner of the dealership even wrote letters to the high ups at Cady, my dealer got some action with them sending "noise and vibration engineers, drove from Michigan Proving Grounds, we did the same thing tires/wheels (was Michelin and now Michelin), computer tuning, rear end and it still vibrates at 40+. the guys went back to Michigan and some higher up said stop! Not good for business, I've had clients in the car and it is embarrassing. I think its the v-6 drive train, I've taken 2008's v-6 as loners and they do the same thing, they have a design problem. I'm surprised more people haven't complained. If this keeps up I'm going to make noise, I wouldn't think Cady wants bad press. The v-8 is a different suspension, no vibration, ITS A CADILLAC! I would still go with one of those, I like the look and size of the vehicle.
I'm sending a letter to the dealer to replace or refund or my attorney is next and I'm told New York is customer friendly.
I'm glad to here you got a refund and I'm not happy with the number one American Luxury Car Company. I don't know what other car I would like, I do not want to buy foreign, but I may have too!

I don't think the V8 has a different suspension, but there may be some differences due the the added weight of the V8-perhaps a different spring rate. There is a different transmission in 2007, six speeds instead of five speeds. The V8 got 18 inch wheels too, where the V6 has the 17's standard.
I do know that some people are having problems with the CTS and DTS. I do find it surprising that you find all V6 to have the same problem as this should not be the case. My SRX is a V8, and I can't complain. I do find that the ride is firmer than my 2002 Seville Luxury sedan's (SLS) was, but this was expected.

I've had my SRX V6 for about 5 months, and have had no problems at all with it. I find at high speeds, it's very smooth and stable. I just find a little wind noise around the drivers mirror. I'll have the dealer take care of it when i bring it in for my 6 month free synthetic oil change.
