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.

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!

Sts — This is one of the best Cadillac has put out in years. The V6 gives all the power needed and the comfort that it does not have the mechanical issues related with the Northstar V8. This is my kind of comfort.

Pros

All the creature comforts of home and if you have the optional Bose system, the sound quality will blow you away.  It will get 28.5 MPG on the open road with the A/C on.  I have sold this car to buy a 2011 STS.  Exact same car, I almost don't feel like a bought new car.  I can honestly say that the STS is the best "all around" car that I have ever owned.  If yuo can buy one "certified", that is a huge plus.

Cons

The voice recognition system is terrible.  They shouldn't have it as an option.  I have had it in my 05, 08 and 2011 STS and they all are terrible.  Actually, shameful.  Since I have had problems in 3 different cars, it is them not the car.

Best "all Around" Car That I Have Ever Owned — I actually get people to turn their head and look at the car. In Black, it looks nice. I love driving the car and so do my kids. When my son dated his girl friend (who became his wife) for the first time and wanted to impress her, he took the Caddy. My other kids when they are going out to dinner, borrow the Caddy. Everyone loves to drive the car. On trips, it is a pleasure to drive and at about 28 MPG on the highway, it is fairly economical.

Pros

This is a soild Americam automible. The build quality is superb along with handling. Ride quality is unmatched at this price point.

Cons

The only thing I did not like about the car is when it rained you could not open the window.

I Love This Car For Its Comfort, Driveability And Power. — This is a true American icon. It is sexy enough for a night on the town and powerful enough to let you know you are driving a luxury sports car. For the money you can't do better than the Cadillac STS V8.

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.)

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!
