Never Had Any Problems Out Of This Car Until Now — I really enjoyed this vehicle until the timing chain gave out with no prewarning. Vehicle shut down on beltway while I was on my way to get a new water pump installed. Unfortunately, I am not able to invest in the labor cost to repair the timing chain.

I Love My Cts. Great Car! — I got my 2006 CTS used with 3,800 miles in perfect condition. The car is very attractive, solid, sturdy, heavy, comfortable, safe, also for the kids in the back (6 airbags). No repairs needed, good cost of ownership, good gas mileage. This car is fun to drive under any conditions and has great traction and steering. I only wished I had the 3.6L engine instead of the 2.8L engine, but performance of the 2.8L engine is still ok.

An Excellent Car — An excellent car. About the best you can possibly expect from any V6 sport sedan. Acceleration is extremely strong for a naturally-aspirated V6. Handling is phenomenal. Comfort is wonderful. Build quality is very good. Overall it is an exceptionally good car.

Beautiful Cadillac Cts Inside And Out. This Car Is Pampered And Washed Very Often. — This is by far the best car i have ever owned. When you are driving this car you always look like your riding in style. It is a great safe and fun family car. This car always looks its best with the car freshly washed, black paint just sparkles and shines in the sun.

Great Ride — Great ride with comfort, handles good, fuel mileage good, parts are priced like a Cadillac. I do a lot of highway miles with this vehicle and like the overall looks, ride, fuel mileage, comfort, and handling. I would recomend it.

2006 Cadillac Cts 3.6-manual — Looks great. Feels great(a bit heavy). The drivers seat is the place to be especially with a 6 speed std. Drove it at night and the guages are perfect and envigorating. You feel sensible yet rich when driving this car. The controls are simple and the mileage is pretty good too!

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

Performance, looks

3 warranty repairs and a recall...not a good record.

What A Look — Love the CTS. Only problem? It's not a CTS-V! Also love the 09's solution to the rather small interior. Now I have to save my money, since GM's come up with a new V... Handles and looks like an entry-level lux-touring-sporty car. Wish there was more aftermarket tuner stuff. Gas mileage for the V6 has been respectable. It would be better if I didn't drive it like I stole it all the time... I've had 3 warranty repairs so far. In my book that's a little higher than average.

Pros

Great design inside out, good performance, fair price, free service for 100000 kms... What would you want more... for the time being?

Cons

No accessories (I installed the CTS-V mesh grille which I bought via internet). Wind noise is a bit high when on highways and that's about it.

Be Distinguished — The CTS is one of the greatest American designs. It has lots of character and it stands out. Interior is nice and special although the car misses some equipments like a telescopic steering, but hey, once you have everything, you'll lack one very important thing and hat is: DREAMS. Performance is great and reliability is good. Well, in few words: you feel distinguished once behind its wheel and with half the price of its German siblings. I added the front grille. A sportier front bumper and a rear apron are on the way ;)

Comfortable, good handling, stable, silent, good power

Cons

Base prices is ok, but as soon as you put some extra features in the car the price goes way up.

Sporty And Luxurious — This car is really a good solid car that gives BMW 3-series and Mercedes C-class a run for their money. Being from Europe I'm spolied with great cars, so it's refreshing to see a great competitive car come from the U.S.

Car Has Strong Acceleration And A Smooth Ride, Phenomanel Braking. — It is my grandmas car but she let me drive it today. I have to say the car is amazing. From the sharp looks on the outside, to the leather interior, to the strong engine the car is a beauty. I've always loved Cadillac's and this was the first one I've driven. I was impressed with the smooth quiet acceleration and the impressive engine power. I found that the brakes performed exceptionally well at higher speeds. The ride itself is a smooth one. I recommend this car to any Cadillac lover, although I would take the CTS-V over this model but either way its an amazing car.
