She's the one.

Not only is it a looker. But I have the 3.6L coupe AWD. Premium package. And it's got EVERYTHING you need. Pop up display, rear view camera, keyless entry, remote start, heated and cold seats, great pick up with 304 hp. (Turn off stabilitrac and put her in sport mode auto stick and you will really get to see her true colors). I was in an accident and got hit by a semi truck and she is driving for months after that as if nothing happened. Really a sturdy car. Automatic seats. Plenty of cup holders. The handling it's amazing. Just hugs the road. Staggered wheels. Sun roof. Bose stereo. DVD player. USB ports. Heated steering wheel. My only downside of this car is I have to eventually leave the car to go into my house.


110k miles and the rear end is making loud noise.

Replaced with a used rear end and noise if worse. Have a second rear end being installed this week. So far 1300 for first one and will update on second one this week. Door looks have decided not to work by remote. Had to remove front bumper to replace headlight bulb.


A fun Caddy

Seriously these cars are a blast to drive. Mines a 3.0 liter and ahead has plenty of performance ready to roll. Theres several great caddys out there


Very reliable so far.

Very sharp car. Friends and family love it. It rides smooth, and really has a lot of power for a car of its size. Seats are spacious and comfortable, can fit five adults without a problem. I plan to enjoy this car for years to come.


Very reliable car!

Great all around car! I would recommend this car to anyone. Very sporty as well. Good looking car with very low mileage. This car is in mint condition!


Luxery coupled with performance. A beautiful car.

Plenty of headroom and legroom. Infinitely adjustable driver's leather seat (all seats are leather) is extremely comfortable. Hit one button and the seat retracts and the steering wheel moves out of the way for easy entrance/exit. Hit the other button and everything moves back to your chosen configuration (can store 2). Filled with luxury features like individual temp controls for the driver and passenger. Slip the key in your pocket, then walk up to the car and it unlocks for you and you use keyless start. Done? Walk away and it automatically relocks. Too cold or hot outside? Remote start lets the car heat up or cool down before you get in. The Bose sound system is very, very nice and feature rich. All of the important stuff can be done from the steering wheel, so you can operate the radio/cd/mp3, cell phone, etc. hands free with buttons and/or voice commands. The handling, braking, and acceleration are beautiful with a precise nice road feel when driving. Danger: so smooth you do not feel the mph... fortunately it has cruise control.


Leveled up from a 06 CTS with 230,000 miles.

The 2011 CTS is sporty roomy and handles well. The best thing so far is that I am not afraid to perform some of my own maintenance task to save money on dealership mechanical cost


Too many electronic issues.

Computer chip issues, engine misfire, traction control issues, remote key issues, trunk doesn't open... Even the mechanic who repaired the car said the car is problems. Paid lot of money to have lot of headaches.


Cleanest low mileage Cadillac I could find

For me the Cadillac CTS checks all the boxes. Smooth quite ride, plenty of room and style. It's a quality car that just feels so good to drive.


HORRIBLE mechanical issues.

The Caddilac CTS 3.6 liter V-6 is prone to have TIMING CHAIN issues..... and its a $2200 repair. NUMEROUS people have become victims of this problem. It should be RECALLED.
