I would definitely recommend this car to anyone looking in the Audi S6, E AMG, or M5 due to its price for performance - I test drove them all. It is basically a luxury Corvette. The car definitely grabs attention - however, it is a GM and lacks some of the quality of its European counterparts. I wouldn't own the car without a warranty as most of the parts are high-performance and high price. I have had a lot of electrical issues with the car that GM can't fix. Also had to have half the engine replaced. There is also an annoying feature that was added to give it a better gas mileage rating which forces you to shift from 1st to 4th gear under certain conditions - this has never worked well and I don't think people buying the car are concerned with mpg's. It is great on the open road but not in stop and go commutes. Highlights are its performance and styling. The interior could be a little better and the bluetooth phone option was removed for the V series. Its a beast on the highway and you get a lot of attention with the front grille. With my warranty up soon, its been tough finding a car to step up to that has over 400 horsepower for under 55k

I’ve had it for a month now and I love it. The first thing I noticed when test driving it was how smooth it was. I can hardly tell when it shifts. The only reason I know is because it decelerates briefly, but doesn’t make a sound. It has awesome turning radius for a mid size car. It may look like a big car, but it takes off with plenty of power when you need it. I love the leather seating and all the features inside. It has incredible room inside, both high and low. All the leg room you will ever need and a huge trunk. I love this car and plan on keeping it for a long time.

CTS fun

Love my CTS I got the 3.6 ltr, has a growl under the hood. Accleration and steering are remarkably responsive. I'm getting 22 mpg in city driving, I definitely drive it aggressively. Seats adjust a myriad of ways I feel like I'm, in a cockpit. The center console is straight forward the yellow console lighting and the simplicity leave me with the impression that they skimped there. I'm a relatively young guy - a caddy was my grandpa's car, the body styling caught my attention - the performance is outstanding - definitely not the land yacht of yesteryear. I drove a number of cars before I settled on the CTS (BMW 5 series, Chrsysler 300) - the kids have room in the back . . . my wife wishes there was a grab bar up front! Love mine

GREAT Caddy

by from Prattville, AL on October 7, 2013

30,500 miles. Like new, literally. The only issue I see is a low whine in the right rear, typical of a bearing issue. Most users would never notice. This specific car rides better than a 2014 Cadillac...
30,500 miles. Like new, literally. The only issue I see is a low whine in the right rear, typical of a bearing issue. Most users would never notice. This specific car rides better than a 2014 Cadillac at the dealer! The dealer(s) all hype the sports suspension whereas there is LOT of us who do NOT want a jiggly ride. A luxury car should have a comparable ride. I test drove Lexus, Mercedes, Lincoln, and Nissan. NONE equaled the ride in this auto. Do not settle for what you do not want!

Amazing Beast for money. I have 120,000Kms and counting. I also owned a 2003 cadillac CTs and compared to the 3.2L CTS this CTS-V has the 5.7L Highoutput Z06 engine and this car just flies. There is no match for it on the street or anywhere else. This car is worth buying

I looked on Cars.com at all the Cadillac CTS listed and discovered that there are only a few 2004 CTS available, I assumed it was because owners were hanging on to the cars because of the reliability of the car. I have owned it a little over a month and am very pleased with it and how it preforms, This car seems to have been in the hands of the dealer as a loaner car since it only had 39700 miles, and according to the "Car Facts" all recalls were preformed , leaving me with very few concerns......

I give this vehicle one of the worst reviewings ever! i bought the car used with only 28,000 miles on it and hadnt had it but 2 wks and the body control moduel or system control moduel one went out on me and everything locked up on me while going 55mph down the highway! since then it has been in the shop twice one of which i had to replace a windshield that was leaking and that was a problem when it was bought just now notice the mildew stains! I believe that this car had been recked before i bought it and was not mentioned to me!
