2008 Cadillac STS Review Ratings
2008 Cadillac STS V8 Luxury Review
speed, handling, luxurious ride
quality of some materials
Elegant Beauty With A Downhill Skier's Soul. — Bought it used a couple of months ago totally on impulse. I think it may have been a rental previously. Who else would neglect such a car? Car had lots of cosmetic issues with broken vanity mirror switches, leather coming loose from the backs of seats, trim broken on front bumper and was missing the plastic thing under the bumper in front. It also had a bad coil that was causing it to misfire. But I had the warranty intact so I left it in the hands of the dealer here and they handed me back a totally fixed up dream car. And I mean DREAM car. It's like, everywhere I go, I get there too fast because I wanna spend more time in the car. I can TRUST this car when I need to get by other traffic, merging. It GOES when I need it to. I don't buy the 'German argument'. The Cadillac gives you all the quality and service but costs less to maintain and insure and I personally think they are more beautiful. I'm proud to be driving an American beauty and 4 months after buying it, I still sneak peaks at it as I walk away.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
2008 Cadillac STS V6 Luxury Performance Review
Gorgeous. comfortable and good gas mileage
what could be negative about this car?
It Ain't Your Granddaddy's Cadillac Anymore! — Come on, it's a Caddy!! Accelerates well, rides smooth, but not too smooth, I like to feel the road. It's well built, solid and comfortable. It's gorgeous to look at and even better to drive, gets decent gas mileage for a car it's size (and my driving habits). Maintenance is not an issue, if it isn't under warranty, my hubby is fixing it! Can't say a Caddy is fun, more than granddaddy's Cadillac was for sure, but very satisfying. Get's lots of looks for it's good looks and oh so comfy inside. Heated & air conditioned seats that are adjustable six ways from Sunday make sure of that!

Great ride! This car handles really well.
I really don't have any complaints about this car. Only one recall since I've had it.
Beauty — This car has a great ride. The brakes are good, it accelerates fine, and handles good. This car is small to me but, I guess because I ride in the BMW the most. This is the car I drive mainly when I am by myself. I did drive it up north a few weeks ago and it was a comfortable ride.
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
2008 Cadillac STS V8 Luxury Performance Review
Comfort, Speed, Styling everything a grown man needs!
Just missed the German bar of standards!
Another Great Car, But Is That All? — Yes.... I think so! The Northstar V8 is great, the bose is unparalleled, and it looks pretty good. BUT for the money I'd have a hard time justifying it over a 5 series! It's hard to describe, but the total interior feel just isn't that of a BMW or higher end Mercedes. The V car is superb too just not Stellar, like the german rivals and that makes this car hard to love because that is the main competition that they want to go after. I will say, that in time this could be what Cadillac used to stand for, and with time could rise to unbelievable greatness. This car, though, just isn't it!

Fast And Sexy
I enjoyed owning and driving the car immensely. The car is not suited to be driven on a ranch with dirt / rough roads. It is a joy in the city and on the highway. You can ride in it for hours and y... Read More
It is a beautiful car, beautiful engine, with no need for more horses. Easy to do over 90 in and reckless if new driver because of power. Throttle lacks response time, 2 second delay between petal to ... Read More
The Other "ultimate Driving Machine"
While the CTS does a better job of competing with the imports on build quality, I refuse to echo the complaints of most automotive journalist. The STS is a wonderful blend of comfort, sport and Americ... Read More

With V8 power , rear wheel drive and surprisingly good fuel economy it's a shame Cadillac has discontinued this model . From the inside you feel like you're in a large car with lots of space, yet when... Read More
Great Drive To And From Work. Sit Back And Enjoy The Ride!
Ultimately, the Cadillac enjoys driving fast. It preforms at high speed; lowering to the ground and hugging turns. It is a fun car to drive; I enjoy my ride to and from work each day. Bose audio syste... Read More
Wished we would have bought the larger V-8 for higher cruise at 80-85. Love it for long trips. Really like the cooled ac seats. and the fan on your butt for sure. The sun visor could be longer. T... Read More

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... Read More
