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.

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.

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.

CRAMPED interior space for a guy my size!

Not A Car For Tall People! — I rented this car on a recent business trip and loved, the handling, performance, design, and the interior. I HATED with a PASSION, the limited cramped space! The interior lights up! And I mean as Nelson, he rode with me, the thing LIGHTS UP!

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.

acceleration , braking , handlilng

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!

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.
