Half the Story

What I will not see:

The owner of a 2010 Cadillac CTS-V will argue with the dealership that sold him the car.  He will point to the trunk of his brand new, $60,000 luxury car.  Inside will be his ruined golf shoes, soaked leather golf club bag, dozens of important papers, all drenched in water.  The carpet in the trunk will be soaked, and there will be some water puddled in the low spaces.

The dealer will insist that the weatherstripping is not defective.  The owner will argue that it is, since the contents are soaked.  Much arm waving and vigorous disagreement will ensue.

What I did see:

After hours of a drenching downpour, I walked outside to get to my car.  Right in front of the door there was a cream colored 2010 Cadillac CTS-V.  The owner had left the trunk lid open, allowing the trunk to collect gallons of water.  I quickly looked around for the owner and saw no one.  I waited around for about a half a minute and then ran around to the back of the car to close the lid.  Inside I saw a fancy pair of golf shoes, a beautiful golf bag with a nice set of clubs, and an open briefcase with papers exposed--all getting drenched.  I looked around for a moment, then reconsidered the wisdom of staring.  I shut the lid, ran to my truck, and headed home.

Good luck at the dealership!
