Fun Car To Drive — As stated pro / cons. The car I got to have more room from my two door and my daughter to see out from her car seat much better. Love driving the car and she loves it. Had replaced few things on the car that is normal for them and lots of information can be found on the forums

Pros

Comfortable drive even on long cross country trips. I got better fuel economy than a Subaru legacy wagon on the highway and I had the cruise control set at 70!

Cons

none

The Last Model I Will Ever Own — Power and performance wrapped in luxury. I must pay off my Dodge pick up so I can save up to buy a new 2011 CTS-V. This has been the most wonderful car I have ever owned. I am completely spoiled on the Vseries cars. Even with all that power and performance, I got good enough mileage to outweigh the cost of fuel. I looked at it like this, I could drive a high fuel mileage econo-box but at this point in my life WHY! I chose power, luxury and performance. Do the math! at 20 mpg for my commute it cost me on average an extra 10 to 15 dollars a week to drive this dream car. well worth it in my book.

Pros

Fast. Handles very well. Minimal problems. Looks great. Did I mention how fast it is :)

Cons

Pretty obvious when your driving a 5.7 liter V8....fuel consumption. Gotta pay to play!

Great Car!!! — As the original Cadillac ad asks,"When you turn on your car, does it return the favor?". My answer...Absolutely!! Runs VERY well and it's extremely fun to drive. This is a very powerful car and not for the "feint of heart". The 5.7 liter V-8 produces 400hp (0-60 mph in 4.3 sec and top speed of 166 mph) I've never enjoyed a car as much as this one and I hate to sell it but it's time for me to buy the new model CTS-V.

Pros

Fast. Handles very well. Reliable. Great engine sound. Body style combined with Raven Black paint looks beautiful. The list of pros is too long. Did I mention how fast this car is???

Cons

Only one...gas mileage. But you gotta pay to play!

I Absolutely Love This Car!! — This is by far and away the most favorite car I have ever owned without question. It's a true American muscle car with it's shear power and throaty V-8 sounds (unlike the high whining sounds of European sports cars). I couldn't give it higher recommendations. I can't wait to get my 2012!

The Coolest, Badest-ass Car I've Ever Owned. The Gnx Of My Generation. — 400hp, 396trq., 6-spd MT, NAV, what else is there to say besides its a CADILLAC on top of that!?!. Car is definetely high maintenance, lots of little quirks. Gearheads and weekend warriors dream come true...smallblock 350ci...lol. At less than 3000 made per year, this car is a keeper IMO.

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

Not Your Daddy's Caddy — Love the speed, hate the gas mileage although it could be worse. Handles well all year, but winter snow tires are a must.
