    Cadillac XTS 2013
  1. I need to vent.... I bought a 2013 XTS Luxury with 8900 miles 5 days ago and spent a great deal of money on this car. After speaking with the Cadillac Cue Infotainment Group I learned that, despite being told by the dealer that it had it, the car does not have SMS/Text messaging capabilities. Since I run my business from the car and my colleagues use SMS/Text to communicate with me, I depend on this seemingly insignificant feature. I am very disappointed to learn that this car doesn't have the SMS/Text feature and regret making this purchase. I used to own a 2006 BMW 530i with this feature. Then I decided to buy American and chose a 2010 Ford Taurus Limited with Sync that also had this feature. This new (to me) 2013 XTS with supposedly advanced technology doest have this simple feature. There were so many other foreign and domestic car choices available to me when I bought this American luxury car, I now feel that I made a $41K mistake. Honestly, I regret making this decision but need to get over it now. Ok...rant over. Question... Does anyone know if there is a way to upgrade the current Cue system to support SMS/Text reading and/or display, or of an aftermarket SMS display/reading system that can be used via bluetooth? Advice greatly appreciated.
