Hello there fellow cadillac owners

Hello, My name is Mike and I am new to the world of Cadillac and new to owning a supercharged vehicle. I have owned other high performance vehicles like the Lexus IS-F, but it's nothing like the power of the CTS V-Wagon!! I'm hoping to find ideas and tips to really enjoying this car/wagon. Have a great day, Mike

I was thinking its a really early shift. But yea I'm giving about 10% throttle and it is 7 or 8 mph into 2nd gear. The shift feels totally smooth, with no jerking or noises. It takes place at about 1900 rpm & 7-8 mph. Maybe its just a really short gear ratio? If it were to shift at 20 like people are saying, the shift would probably be over 3000 rpm. Sometimes when I slow down to just barely stopping (2mph) it doesnt downshift into 1st. It stays in 2nd when I accelerate again. It seems like I need to be at a complete stop to engage 1st gear.
