Most HP for the $, could be a little more refined

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


Best car ive ever owned

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.


fun to drive

this car is great. i have the 3.6 and it is so much fun to drive. i get 21mpg. i have 47000 miles and no problems so far


Most Fun To Drive

Cars is a lot of fun to drive. I only used the car as a weekend car or car show car. Car is very rare which makes it worth that much more. I may have seen two other when i was driving this car. I just need to upgrade to either a EXT OR the "NEW V"


Cadillac CTS-V

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


One of the most unreliable cars ive ever owned

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!
