yes a refresh is coming, but i don't think it will be enough unless the interior is completely redesigned. In its class I see no reason to pick the sts over superior cars like the M45, A6, 540, etc.

GM, you CANNOT allow Cadillac to regres!!!!!! They need freshened product and they need it NOW!!! Not 3 years from now, that'll be too late!
