little tight on room

My Ninth Cadillac — Handles like a foreign sports car at half the cost. V6 engine is very responsive and powers up quickly. Cost-wise with the extras I added make it around $49,500.00. Fun car to drive with instant acceleration and positive braking. About the only disadvantage , its a bit tight on room but you learn to adapt. I would absolutely recommend to all!

Pros

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!

2008 Cts 3.6 Di — Performance - this car will not disappoint you in this department. Build quality - this is the best built Cadillac GM has ever made. Appearance - the most stunning cadillac has ever made inside and out Fun Factor - this car is tons of fun and you get a lot of complements from folks. You simply have to go drive it if you've never driven one. I recommend this car to everyone.

Pros

Awesome power and handling and great looks for a perfomance luxury sedan!! and all at regular unleaded gas!!! Premuim BOSE HDD stereo is awesome with rocking hard pounding bass!! can even pause and rewind any radio station!

Cons

Center Stack consol goes dead about twice a year for about 2 days,,, then comes on all by itself like nothing is wrong...

Awesome American Made Performance Luxury Sedan!! — The ride is quiet and VERY responsive, It takes hard corners like it is on rails!! The Direct Injected 3.6L V6 has plenty of power to set u back in the seat and passing power is awesome all while driving in the confines of a Luxury sedan and all this with "regular unleaded" something the Europeans have yet to grasp!!,,, I think the looks has also increased my already sex appeal by at least 22.5%...what else would you want? Not bad for an American made car!

Pros

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.

2008 Cts 3.6 Di — When you turn on your, does it return the favor? The CTS is plenty fast. Has 304 horsepower coming from a Direct Injected V6. Braking and handling is awesome. It has a 40GB Hard drive, 8 inch touchscreen, light piping around the interior of the car, and a ultra view moonroof. Puts a smile on my face everytime I drive it. =D

2008 Cts — The best car I have ever owned....and will probably be the first car to get me a ticket! Seriously, the performance is bar none...and it takes regular gas! It was worth the 8 months I waited to get it. Road trip anyone? :)

2008 Cadillac Cts Test-drive — This car is the best Cadillac ever. It looks sleek and modern, yet definitely still feels like a Caddy. The interior is top notch and the one I drove didn't even have the top-of-the-line interior. The one I drove had the smaller sub300hp V6 but I could imagine the 300hp V6. This car rocks! Definitely a winner for Cadillac!
