Howdy all

Have had my eye on the Caprice PPV for a while. Looks like I'll be getting one soon. Happy to be part of the forum.

I've been a GM guy for a long time. Several cars, two CUCV Blazers, GMC pick up.....and an 05 GTO. Currently own a 2000 K3500 turbo diesel. My daily driver is not a GM product at the moment. It'll be the last non-GM car I'll own.

Finally purchased my Caprice last week. Purchased from one of the dealers in the Chicago area. Good people, super easy purchase.
This is the third car bought on-line.
Had planned on going up to get it, but with everything going on, had it shipped. Arrived late Friday night. Didnt really have a chance to drive and evaluate it until yesterday. Love the way it a Chevy. Found acceleration to be REALLY good, cornering was good as well. Dont remember the GTO handling that well.
I suspect I have a loose connection somewhere. I keep getting random ABS light and Stabilitrack and traction control warnings. Also it seem to come on while turning the steering wheel, and then goes off. I'll mess with it later this week. I have an owners manual but no maintenance books at the moment.
All in all, think I got a good deal on it. After all, it is a former police/government vehicle, its not gonna be perfect.
Nice trunk mat with full size spare tire.
