Good Reliable Vehicle

Runs very good no defects, heat and air works very good. Radio works well and very comfortable ride. Nice vehicle for the price it is advertised for.


Complemented everywhere.

It's been great! I will hate to give it up but when the time comes I hope to find another Cadillac that is as good or better than this one.


Ages like fine wine

If you take care of a quality car, it should take care of you. Cadillac has been making high quality autos for decades and the xxx is no exception. So easy to find an older, low mileage vehicle that is ready to perform. Usually they say you should stay away from the 1st year of a new model. But the xxx is so close to the CTS (also owned one of these) that it?s not like a new model. A great car that you can get for a great price and ride in luxury. So quick, comfy, and quiet!


Most depends car that I been own one

It's met all the options I need cost less to buy and got all the luxury inside..Still driving today comfortable driving all around its nice to have one.


It's cost less to own one...But kinda pricely to

It's got all the options that I need..It's cost less to buy and all the luxury inside and out..I still drive rite now prices to fix may cost little bit more then I thought


The most luxury and reliable car I have ever owne

This car has a navigation screen, I have 2 keys and one is set to me and the other to my daughter. With the key I can turn my car on from the outside and each key sets to personal settings like the mirrors adjust, the seats set so you can get in and when you close the door it changes to your driving position and when you open the door to exit it sets to comfortably get out. I have a back up sensor that works very well, bluetooth, and my stereo system has great sound and and bass. There are many other features I can get into, and more I don't even know about.


Nice car...but costly to maintain

Pros: Great riding car with comfort you would expect from a Cadillac. There is is plenty of power with the Northstar V8 to get you going when you need it. Con: Electrical gremlins that are way to expensive to fix. The car may have depreciated but labor/parts sure don't. Neither of the heated seats, exterior door handle, air bag light and there are times when it simply won't start even with a good battery. Wait a few minutes and it will fire up fine. There is nothing major yet to fix thank goodness.


A classic American 'Sleeper Sedan'

This is by far the best car I have yet to own. As a maturation of their 'Art and Science' design philosophy, this car is more conservative in appearance; it's styling marked a shift for the Cadillac brand back towards stately from angular. This toned-down look continues to the interior, which despite excellent leather appointed seats and ample space for five to travel is loaded with the kind of hard plastics you'd expect to find in a more mainstream brand, especially for 2005. If a spartan interior and stealthy exterior combined with what was the best high feature american V-8 at the time is what you are after, this is the perfect car for you.


2005 Cadillac xxx V6 RWD

I got the 05 xxx in 2011 with only 60k miles. The car is nice but I was semi skeptical about repair costs. About 2 years and 36k miles later, all I have replaced were wipers and breaks. The car is beautiful inside and out. I stand 6'3 and friends have a hard time sitting directly behind me. Sound system is great. Only complaint is that I should have gone AWD for the snow I get. Overall, I would buy a Caddy again.


Great Value

Loving this car. All the comforts of luxury. Drives like a dream. Tremendous value for a used car. Love the drive and pickup on the highway.
