It's great on the highway very fast if step on!!!!! Light blubs are very high & oil changes but other than that it's a great fast car. A eye blower when driving on the road. GM's best !!!!!!!!! Summer time when top down it's great treat to yourself. A Man's older car that score points in driving.

Beautiful car!!! Lines on it are awesome. Gets sooo many looks it's unreal. Several guys have approached me about my "bat-mobile." A worthwhile car that doesn't beat you up. Ride is decent to pretty nice depending upon your subjective likes/dislikes. Softer than a corvette for sure and much quieter. ALL leather interior makes a HUGE difference. Not only for sound but also looks! Corners very, very well. I've taken a 90 degree turn at 45, no problem...better hang on though. Tires are very wide. All 4 tires are the same size. Acceleration is okay...engine roar is more exciting. 325hp does get up and go. If you stay out of it, 29-30 mpg is possible on the hwy. In the city, 12-14mpg. Semi-auto with manual on the stick is subpar. If you've ever driven a Porsche or a BMW, the Caddy cannot hang with the aforementioned's pattle shifting capabilities. I would peg a Corvette to be the same as the XLR in this sense. Top is really easy to operate. Press a button and hold it down for 20-30 seconds and presto...you're ready to go. Road noise with top down is surprisingly quiet. With the windows up, you can have a conversation and be understood. No yelling or having to raise your voice. Great car. Replacement parts are expensive b/c it's a Caddy. Have had the care for 8 months and only 1 major mechanical problem. Gear shift stuck in park. Got a clever work around though. Other than that, car purrs. Mines black and it's awesome! Enjoy!

Very fun! Great looks! Fabulous car! Suspension is softer and more comfortable than the non-luxury rival. More quiet too. All leather interior! Push-button start...very bueno! I loved walking up to the car and opening the door; walking away and the car locking itself. Very efficient and easy! All of the wheels are the same size, you can actually rotate tires. They are quite wide and make it possible to take a 90 degree turn going 45mph! Car is not the the fastest in the world, but the 325hp definitely takes off. No problem merging onto the hwy and very comfortable at 80mph. MPG: it's great on the hwy 28-29 and not great in the city 11-13...depending on how you drive it. Grade of gasoline does make a difference. I'm very picky and can tell how different the car acts with 87, 89, and 93. With 93, car operated smooth as glass and you had instant take off. With 87, car was smooth, but you could tell engine wasn't as fine. Take off wasn't great...however, once you hit 2K rpms...the car takes off no matter what kind of grade of gasoline. Parts are not cheap! Can't find used. Maintenance isn't bad at all...oil change and air filter. However, top can act up on occasion as can a blinker or the adaptive cruise control. Heated/cooled seats are so-so...there again, they had just been introduced. My was a 2004. Navigation was on-target evey time! A different grille makes a world of difference! Stock grille is cheapo plastic ....get a billet, honeycomb, or any chrome replacement. Not to mention, get rid of the front license plate..... Just my two cents. If you get one, or, are thinking about getting one... 1. Figure out how much you want to allocate/save/set aside for potential repairs/check-ups. 2. Decide what your price point is and go shoppin! Take your time. It took 3 weeks of internet browsing....all the websites and another 2 before I closed my deal. It was well worth the wait! Enjoy.

Very Quick. Great styling

by from Scottsdale, AZ on January 9, 2012

Very responsive, having problems with the power steering, very hard to steer but no other problems. Would trade for a low mileage V series.
