From the day the car was delivered, there was something wrong with the windshield. It appeared to be dirty or "??" could not get a clear vision. Finally it was discovered that there was area of approximately one square foot just to the right of center and about mid-point vertically that had a waviness, looked like orange peel effect in a painted surface. Cadillac said it was caused by certain car wash chemicals, however there was no such warning in the operators manual. The distortion was so bad that on trips of fifty miles or longer headaches were caused by the effect on eyes. After about ten months of complaining and filing a complaint with the Arizona attorney general, Cadillac agreed to replace. Kachina did so in October 2001.
