One of the best bangs for your buck!

I recently purchased this vehicle and the WoW factor is in full affect! I havent totally engaged all of the features but from what I have seen this car is excellent... The 5.7L V-8 keeps you glued to your seat, and the fit finish and style makes people turn their heads every where that you go! The drawbacks to this vehicle are; The seats are comfortable but definately takes some getting used to, the navigation system is DVD rom based and the nav screen itself isn't touch screen, the gear box is a little tight that makes for akward shifting sometimes but does NOT interfere with the fun that you will have driving this car, and even though the gas mileage is better than most in its class its still something that you have to keep a sharp eye on because of the large displacement and ease and comfortability you can end up having this beast drink fuel like a lineback drinks gatordade... Other than that this car is an 11 on the scale of 1-10


A Real 4 door Sports Car

I've owned a few sports cars ( Datsun 280-Z & Toyota Supra ) and few sporty, fun cars ( Fiat, Honda, & Mazda ). To get sporty, fun & luxury all in one package is cool. My CTS has the 3.6 V6 w/ the sports suspension, 17" rims, & every option Cadillac offered, the nav system, Bose audio, sunroof, heated seats, even the rare fold down rear seats. This car is so much fun, I volunteer to drive on the weekends. A luxury sports sedan with style. My CTS is black on black.



Outstanding Value for the money. Will smoke anything BMW offers except M6. Outstanding comfort and economy on longer trips. Warranty is much improved also.


Great American Quality Luxury Auto

My 2005 CTS 3.6L with Automatic transmission has simply been amazing. The dynamics of the car are astounding. The handling and acceleration are on par with the segment leaders and all this without sacrificing the ride quality people have come to expect from a Cadillac. The interior design is the only flaw this vehicle has, the layout is intuitive however it has some quality issues, the feel of the platiscs can be hard and not tactilly friendly depending on the placement. However the seats are a 9/10 and the comfort and reach of all the controls are perfect. I liken it to being inside the cockpit of an jet fighter. Exterior styling and look is amazing, it's unlike any other car on the road (except for another cadillac) I encourage anyone to take this American Luxury Sedan for a test drive and see for yourself how it stacks up against the best the Germans and Japanese have to offer.


So far I have no complaints. I love the car.

The style of the vehicle turns alot of heads. constantly recieving compliments and stares. I made a wise decision in purchasing this vehicle. I am completely satified with the overall performance of the car.
