Great Car If I Did Not Need Suv. — I loved this car, went out of town a lot and great on the road. This car is always a head turner and has the smoothest ride. Great boss stereo system can hear everything with those tweeters. Smoothest ride I have ever had!!

Pros

great interior space; and solid vehicle. i like the suspension; the smoothest ride i ever felt.  I haven't test driven many cars but compared to the 2003 bmw 325i suspension; the interior was better; the automatic seat adjustment; i get in car. hit the button and the seat moves me to the steering weel; auto matic temp save; 1 or 2 custom settings;

Cons

however, sinc e i bought used. the stereo is disappointing since im a techy guy;  i planned on replacing it when i test drove it.  sounds good tho; 6+ speakers; crisp; but no bluetooth support and on star doesn't work. car runs through gas  and carries small tank. (15 gallons is small for me) i'm at poump more often. compared to saab car i had.

Decent; Solid; Semi Unique But Not A Show Stopper. — initally, i should have went home and thought twice; the engine pulls alittle, but maybe it needs to be serviced. Cadallac is still an old man's car (as far reputation) so,people respect it but if your under 30; no kids; look else where. the car does impress and since im considering face to face sales. i wanted to look the part. It'll do for now, but I'm going to be trading .

Very Impressed It's My First Cadillac And Won't Be The Last — We've had it for two years and have not had a single problem with it. It's only needed normal maintenance (oil/filter changes) and I had to change a bulb :D Great looking and super reliably vehicle. I recommend it to anyone!

Good Car To Drive And Have But If You Don't Have The Money To Upkeep It Then Avoid It. — Very enjoyable car. Gets close to 25 mpg on the interstate. Very quick car and also drives very smooth. Tops out at 140 and has a sporting mode on it. The interior is nice black leather and is very well maintained.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
