#5 out of 5 is not good
I own two of the cars in the test (the caddy and the jag) These two cars are totally different and what car mags never do is show you how they are different as opposed to one better than the other. The Caddy at #5????? How??? It's the fastest car in the bunch so if that's what you are looking for you would rank it first.
Now the Jag came in third, but to me, it has the best ride of the bunch and just incredible road presence, but it aint all that fast so where do you put it?
I've had MB's and I had a Porcshe Cayman S, bottom line is this. One day I want that caddy ride and brute acceleration, the next day I might want the chill but seductive ride of the Jag but I could never pick one over the other.
One more thing, I pass at least 20-30 SL500/SL55amgs every day so where's the exclusivity? That, to me is half the allure of car ownership. I should be the only XLR-V in the parking lot, side of the freeway, or anywhere I go. So far I have been, there's not alot of other car owners that can say that. (the Jag's not bad either, but I have over 10,000 miles on the XLR-V)
