CTS-V: Drive shaft "whip" or bad vibration in heavy rain.
Sorry I don't have a solution, just adding that you're not alone...
I just bought my '05 CTS-V on 8/31/09 and today (9/4/09) was the first time I've driven it in the rain. When I hit hard rain it sounded as if the tranny or rearend was going to fall off. I thought I had thrown an axle being or jacked up the tranny/rearend gears or something. The sound quieted down as I left the heavy stuff and then totally disappeared when I got to a dry area. One person said it was probably water hitting the undercarriage or wheel-well, but this was more than that. This sound was louder tan that and is not normal splashing water. If this noise was common, there'd be a heck of a lot more CTS owner complaining about it. I've never heard such a noise in any car I've ever been in when driving in the rain. I'd love to know what it was. I'm not even sure how to show or explain the problem to the dealership in order to get it fixed
