A very nice luxury sort sedan
January 28, 2019
06 STS4, V8 Northstar, 5 speed auto, all the options. Just bought the car a couple days ago. I love it so far. Has 86,000 miles on it, owned by a doctor, one owner dealer maintained car. 98% perfect in all areas. Has power everything, HUD, all kinds of tech stuff to play with, great sounding 15 speaker radio system, navigation, on and on. Engine has 320 hp, car weighs over 4,000 lbs, still moves it quick with 3.23 rear gears. It is AWD so will not spin tires. Transmission shifter can be set in auto or if slipped over to the right, used as a manual automatic trans by moving shifter either up or down to pick the gear you want. Car handles really well for its huge size. It has 18 inch rims, low profile tires, electronically controlled suspension, and stability control to keep it from sliding off the road. Navigation is functional but any newer cell phone has better performance. This navigation requires updated cd to keep it current. Has Satellite radio, am/fm, aux, bluetooth, 6 cd changer, weather radio, and can play movies on DVD. Not able to use MP3 players or memory sticks, no USB ports. Too old for those. Radio sounds great though. Interior has nice quality leather, nice plastics, real wood trim inside, heated/cooled seats, heated rear seats. I always liked the German brands, BMW and Mercedes, which may be better handlers and maybe faster, but for a lot less money to buy and much less to maintain, the Caddy is better. You get 95% of the car but twice the value over the long run. Less prone to breakdown than the Germans. Still love the German cars though. Never even thought of Cadillac until they switched to RWD. Was looking at Infinity G or M series cars used, had little luck. Saw the caddy listed on FB, thought it wouldnt hurt to at least check it out just to see how it drove if anything. Fiance was needing a car, she wasnt too interested at first but went with me to test drive it. She ended up liking it more than the Infinity(which are very nice cars, but owners were liars or flakes) so we got it. It really is a fun car to drive with the AWD, sticks to the road, only downside is no burnouts or donuts, lol.
