Hot Ride — Great Car overall, I would not have any complaints or downsides to this vehicle. It has great power and is great on gas. I love the Red color with the Tan interior. The chrome accent package adds more luxury and beauty. Cadillac is Truly a top of the line car!

Timeless Style With An Enjoyable Ride. — The car has a timeless style supported by low fuel cost and a response engine. The ride is smooth and the maintenance on the vehicle has been minimal, just routine oil changes. This is not your grandfather's caddie, but just as smooth riding. What I prefer is a larger back seat.

Great Performance — Love the way the car looks, how handles and how it performs. It has a great sound system and the XM radio is great for short or long trips. No major issues with the car. I prefer a larger back seat, I have children.

Caddy — This is a good ride no problems. the gas mileage could have been better but the next one will be since they are now more fuel efficient. My next car will be a cadillac I have always enjoyed them and it's elegant.

9 Out Of 10 — Long trips in the car are no problem very comfortable plenty of power. Due to the extra option i choose of dbl sunroof it has a slight bit of road noise to it whether its in town or on highway. Only using premium gas can be a drag but that comes with driving a luxury car.

If you want a current looking luxury car with all of the bells and whistles, look for a used CTS like mine, you won't regret it.

Cons

There isn't a thing I can knock this car for.

Cadillac Cts A Bargain For A Sport/luxury Driven Owner. — So much Luxury for so very little money. I bought this instead of a 2011 Chevrolet Cruze LTZ, because it was cheaper. Performance is great for a this size of vehicle, especially with the sport suspension package. This car gets a lot of attention, has room for the family, and is amazing in the snow (AWD). I bought it 4 years old, with 40k on the odometer and only had to fix the passenger seat switch. Fuel economy is a little below what I'd expect but thats the trade off for an AWD sedan powered by a V6.

Gm Stepped Up With This One! — I love this car! It's been great very little issues, and nothing that wasn't covered under warranty. The back seats lack space, but are comfy. the front seats are awesome. It's a sports sedan! It's got great power and handling. the fuel economy is great, especially on the high with the cruise on!

Great looks and performance.  Best American Car on the road.

Cons

Can get pricey with desireable options.

The New Standard Of The World — Handling and braking are superb. Always feel sure-footed in the corners, wet or dry. Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires are amazing. Gas, maintenance and other operating costs are fairly low. Top marks for Cadillac service. Build quality is top notch. Almost no issues with mechanical or electrical systems, or interior trim pieces. The car is an absolute stunner to see on the street. After 3 years with the car, I still get compliments on it regularly.
