Think Twice about the XTS

This is my seconds XTS. The first 2013 XTS was so problematic that with 9000 miles GM bought it back and put me in a 2014. This one doesn't fare much better with ongoing problems with the CUE System that controls everything in the car, and not very well. The XTS with it's "Magnetic Ride" is terrible. You will experience a very harsh ride and feel every bump and dip in the road. Cadillac used the cheapest Good Year tires and the road noise transfers into the cabin on every street or highway you drive. You'll also get to know the dealer's Service Dept. well. I've owned a lot of new Cadillac's over the years, and had very few if any problems. If you like a Corvette ride, and the feel of every bump as you drive, you'll love this car, otherwise...think twice before buying!

I was hoping to find a car as comfortable as my 2007 Cadillac DTS, but no one seems to make that anymore. The "soft" ride, which i loved has been replaced by a tighter suspension- not as good for people with back problems. But, the XTS definitely handles better. As soon as i learn all of the computer functions, I know I will enjoy driving it. (I just need a lot of soft cushions for comfort sake.)

I had a 2013 XTS that rattled all over especially the dash. I traded for the 2014 and could not be happier. The dealer did try to fix three times but could not. This proves you should never buy the first year of a new design.

The "Car Of A Lifetime"

So much to write about - virtually everything positive. I could not believe my XTS Premium was priced similarly to a CTS. there really is no comparison in my mind. The XTS is roomier & smoother than any CTS. I avoided driving the XTS Twin-Turbo only beause I would have put myself in a $70,000 hole. The one I leased has every feature imaginable and some you've never imagined. Appearance-wise it kind of looks like a large Acura TL, only more elegant. The door handles, rear tailights, front lights and mirrors all light up at night when you pop the door locks. The inerior doors, dashboad and door handles all include illuminated "light-bars" - dring this thing at night is an unforgettable experience. The ride on this car is OUTSTANDING - BETTER than my uncle's 1973 Sedan DeVille (which really WAS the Standard Of The World). Performace is excellent for a car of this weight. It will never outrun my SRT8 Charger - but that's not why I picked this car. On the highway this car is as capable as any car on the road - it's smooth, powerful, and agile. The ergomonics ar a little difficult at first until you become accustomed to sliding your finger across the contrls rather than pressing down on buttons. Bluetooth automatically connects to your cell phone and you play any stored music thought the car's Bose stereo system. In fact - when you restart the car - the car re-links to your phone and remembers the last song you played - Automatically - you don't have to a thing. Heated seats, air-conditiioned seats, full-panorama sunroof, 19" wheels.... The list goes on and on. If you're like me and bust your tail for EVERYONE ELSE ON THIS PLANET - you owe this one to YOURSELF.

My new(2 weeks and 700 miles) XTS has proven to be one of the roughest riding automobiles I have every owned.It is almost as if GM failed to put shocks on this car.My 2010 Chevy Silverado truck has a smoother ride without feeling every small bump in the road than the XTS .If you are contemplating buying a XTS you should test drive it on some fairly rough streets or roads first. The rest of the car is great. Ed Nine Lexington,S.C.

XTS has the best interior for the price!

I picked a used XTS Vsport Platinum and cannot say enough positives about the car. With 40,000 miles you would never know it. The Vsport with it's more sport oriented ride can be a bit stiff on rough roads, but the magnetic shocks and supportive, cooled seats leave the driver in comfort. On a 12 hour round trip at a cruise controlled 65 MPH I saw 32.2 mpg! This 4,200 lbs, twin turbocharge V6 with AWD seeing almost mid-30 mpg on 20" wheels

I had purchased a earlier year CTS model and was not pleased with the trunk space, the hard ride or the back sear leg room as well as the features. After one year I decided to trade the CTS for the XTS which is more like the past DTS and Deville models I had owned. The features are wonderful, fully equipped and the ride is superior to the CTS. I like everything about the car, average mileage is 22.8 mpg at approx. 8000 miles, better than the CTS was getting. If its in your price range, test drive one and you will want to buy one.

Top of the line large American luxury

The Cadillac XTS sets the benchmark for a large American luxury sedan in many ways. Its back seat legroom is best-in-class. Its trunk space is outstanding. Its front seats feel like a shiatsu massage (though they apparently may pinch larger owners than my wife and me). Its top-line available safety features and heads-up display also lead the pack. The performance of the XTS is very good for the gas mileage it attains. Even on base-models, there's a capable magnetic-ride suspension which delivers a luxurious ride but lets you feel that the road is still there. There's a Camaro engine under the hood with over 300 HP and yet nearly 30 MHG highway. If you're like me, you'll enjoy the paddle shifters, which deliver quite a good response without harsh shifts (except from 2nd to 1st for aggressive engine braking). Further, for a large car, the XTS feels like a "driver's car," tracking well in moderately hard turns and demanding subtle inputs at high speeds. To complete the performance available even on the base models, the car has Brembo brakes, and you'll notice them; its stopping power is extraordinary for its weight (see for yourself against the German and Asian competition in any published comparison test). And finally, there's CUE and natural voice recognition. If you spend a few minutes understanding what Cadillac has accomplished here, you'll appreciate the options you've been given to control every facet of your entertainment and comfort experience in the car. The XTS doesn't get near enough recognition for being a beautiful, luxurious, and satisfying car for an individual, couple or family that likes to live large. Anyone considering such a car would be advised to take a close look at the minor negatives being parroted by the automotive press and think for themselves.

Im not sure what the detractors are talking about with this car. I love it! I used to own a GMC Yukon XL Denali thought that it was luxury. This my friends is luxury and a pleasure to drive. It handles the road great and has great eye appeal. While doing comparisons I found this to be the best value of the E-Class, and the 5 Series BMW. Im a former football player. Im 6'3" and about 275lbs. I found this car to be the most comfortable with more than ample leg and headroom. What I notice was that the ride has changed. I was expecting the old Cadillac floating ride. That part has changed, while it handles the road with grace you can definitely feel the bumps. Other than that its great. It handles like a sports car, and has the look of pure class. It also has the best warranty in its class. I originally went to purchase a CTS but when sitting in the vehicle I felt very cramped. I do like the sporty look of the CTS, I could not deal with the cramped quarters. Do yourself a favor and check this car for yourself and then form your own opinion. You'll be glad you did.

I owned Cadillacs for some time , and have found no other car compare too or is as safe as the caddy . We own two a SRX for the wife, because i want to know that when she out there on these crazy highways she is safe,and a XTS for me . Safety come first and the proformance on these vehicle are awesome. The service plan is one of the best out there. Please folk before you go out and buy a car that you may be sorry for down the road.Try a Caddy. You won't be sorry.
