Best Car I Have Owned, Hands Down! — 320 HP performance, sport/manual shift option The most fun I have had driving in 30 years Very Quiet (a little more exhaust growl would be nice) All Wheel Drive is awesome Magnetic Ride Control on the fly. Sport mode really sticks to the curves. Drive it like you stole it! The Northstar loves to run.

My Dream Car — I own a 2006 Cadillac STS in white diamond with a cashmere interior. Just saying those words make me feel warm and fuzzy. This is my 'dream car'. I just recently got it, it was previously owned, and I love the car. It accelerates on the freeway perfectly, brakes well when I need it. There are no 'extra' little sounds, like squeaks or rattles, this car is built very solid. I had 28 mpg coming home from a trip to Vegas, and I was very pleased with that. So far, so good, just regular maintenance, no problems at all. I'd recommend this car to anyone who is looking for a beautiful, luxury car that will impress your friends and relatives, and make you feel good driving it!

Class all the way...

Cons

Carwash attendents don't know how to work keyless cars!

Love This Car, Very Comfortable And Has Style And Rides Smooth And Quite. — With it being a keyless, I have left my car running several times and not know it until I go back to my car and the A/C is still on...I've had to have the battery changed out a couple of times because the car has too many things on it that it overloads the battery when you start it with the fob. Other than that, I've had more compliments on my white STS then any car I've ever owned. But now the lease is about up I'm looking to find another caddy.

Great Full Size Sedan — i purchased this 2006 cadillac sts last year and was pleased to find th car had lots of room, plenty of power, nice handling with a plush ride and powerful brakes. I cant say anything bad about this car.... the maintenence costs were super reasonable and economy was fine as well. te car averaged 20 mpg combined city and highway.

Pros

Great power in acceleration but very smooth.  Love response to power when switching to manual. I call it a Power Sedan.  Great on Hwy and comfortable. Quiet engine.  Great cargo for luggage.  Rear seats are very comfortable for passengers.

Cons

A bit sluggish on handling but expected with heavy car. Premium gas required.

Pros

Nice ride with good handling.  Fuel economy is average for a car this size, not as good as a Mercedes E320 I previously owned.  In all other aspects, I like just as well as the Mercedes.

Cons

Fuel economy.  Brakes have required more service than average.

Overall, Its Been A Good Car. — These are nice cars for the money. Mine is loaded with features: navigation (which is just plain un-useable), DVD entertainment, rear heated seats, etc. The ride and handling are very good. Acceleration is Ok, not outstanding. Overall, I am very satisfied.

Pros

I like the presence of a Cadillac. The handling is amazing, as is the over quality of the ride.

Cons

Gas mileage. Obviously not a deal breaker for me. If you want a full size car with some get up and go 18 - 26 is the average in the market.

My New Baby! — The STS fits me best out of all the Cadillac s (I can afford). The CTS has nice body lines but I wanted more leg room. The DTS has more standard options and maybe a better ride for the highway driving types. But I wanted a sportier feel all around, the better gas mileage (v6 option) and AWD.
