Pancreatic Cancer is a bitch. I have lost two very close friends to it in the last 30 years, one very quickly, like yours, and one that had the slower growth version they thought they could cure, and he went into remission, but it came back with a vengeance.

That said, yes, I know a dozen people that drive one as a DD and most of the time it's only one or two up. Of those, it's typically either their family vehicle, or the second car (husband or wife drive the more practical DD).

In the end though, I can't dispute what you are saying other than to say it's hard for a family to have a car for every scenario so you have to go for the one that best fits all of them.
Thoughtful, responsible use is definitely the exception. I'd be honored to ride along in your Caddy.

I lost a dear friend to the slow version a couple years ago. Mrs. U. and I were his and his wife's closest companions down to the last evening. The call came as soon as we got home. Remember the drive back like it was yesterday. That's just how it is with traumatic loss.


Our friends live on in our hearts. RIP
