If you are considering a 09-and up CTSV , Two Words: DRIVE ONE! The combination of ergonomics, elegance and brute power are unparalleled with any vehicle under 80K . I chose the auto as my boy racer days are over but dont get me wrong this thing is armed and dangerous at any stoplight and highway acceleration will blow your mind even further. Since my first day of ownership this car has been paying me back and continues to impress me with it's handling and smooth ride. The recaros and suede wheel are a must. Srt's ,SVT's ,M///'s and AMG's Bring it! Cadillac is back on their game and here to stay.

Prior to purchasing my 2009 CTS, I have been been the satified owner of 2002 Esclade. I puchased the Esclade in 2004 with about 34,000 miles on it. I now have over 273,000 miles on this vehicle all with out any majors repairs the entire time. When I went to purchase the CTS they asked if I was wanting to trade my Esclade in. My response, "Not on your life." I am staying with American made Cadillacs. The quality of their products is outstanding and second to none in my book. My CTS is great! And get this...my Escalde almost drives as smooth as my new (to me) 2009 CTS.

This car is an amazing vehicle. I have driven a BMW 3 series for several years and test drove the 5 series before my purchase. This car hands down killed the BMW with its ride and interior features. BMW wants to charge a small fortune for what this car comes with. The ride is smooth and quiet. The navigation system is on par with the garmin i had to use in my 3 series. the luxury interior and sporty exterior make this a must drive before shopping for BMW or mercedes.

The Cadillac CTS is worth a look. With AWD and the new DI engine the car is a real performer. Snowfall is no problem, the car handles and performs like a sports car but yet has the manners of a Cadillac. The CTS will be first on our list of cars when it comes time to trade. The car was purchased a year ago and now has 20K miles and has not been back to the dealer for any warranty issues.

I am 52 yrs old and this is the FIRST American car I have ever owned, now going on 7 months. If a friend hadn't dragged me to the Cadillac dealership, I would not have discovered this gem. I had been looking at cars that cost $10 to $15 thousand more with similar features and handling/performance. I decided I didn't need the BMW/Mercedes/Jaguar name plate for the price difference. I am worried about reliability, but so far so good. Too many blind spots out the rear, yes, it really needed a rear camera option. And, yes, agree with reviewers about somewhat hard front seats and goofy panoramic sunroof. But it is a joy to drive on both short and long trips, the NAV and audio features are terrific, and the car turns heads.

The 2009 Cadillac cts is very stylish in the exterior and interior appearance. Unfortunately when it rains, I can barely hear the other person on the car's Bluetooth. It is so noisy in the car when it rains, I'm not use to that in any vehicle.... Cadillac cts needs a better sound barrer... I've driven a 2000 cadillac Deville HLS. Which was great didn't have such a sound ... Another issue, if your a person who needs alot of leg room as the driver the rear passenger will suffer as they will be cramped if there sitting directly behind you... Especially if they are tall and also need leg room, this could be very uncomfortable...

I'm 50-years old and so I've had many cars and this is hands down the very best car I've ever owned. I was looking at Mercedes, Lexus, BMW but loved the looks of the CTS. I have a Raven Black on Black and its loaded. I've had a few issues but for the most part its perfect. I detail cars as a hobby and I've noticed nothing negative as far as the clear-coat is concerned. But if the previous reviewer lives in the LA area, I would be happy to look at it and correct it. If it is the clear coat, all you can really do is repaint the car. But I'm sure that his is an isolated issue. My paint looks near-perfect.... People make comments at least once a week about how deep and rich the Black paint looks...
