Best Car Ever!!!! — This is one of the best cars I have ever owned/drove! (and I have driven many!) It is fun to drive, handles, great, is very reliable, and looks great! I love this car! Cadillac is back and this is the best car they have made!

Pros: Everything!!

Cons: They could have just a little nicer interior, but it is still great for the first car they made like this.

Gorgeous! — I love love love this car. The only problem I've ever really had with it is that if something goes wrong with it computer wise, it really sucks. One little thing can totally screw you. Everything seems so high tech, which means expensive to fix. And hardly any mechanic in Iowa knows how to work on one!

Pros: Its beautiful and has a lot of little gagets and fun extras.

Cons: Too high tech. They should've kept it simple, stupid.

Modern, Fun, "american Bmw". —

Great driving car, we had the 5 speed manual, which was hard to find. The cts is easy to live with, and dependable. Sporty handling, great sound and dual climate systems. The traction control, along with tight suspension, made twisty roads desirable. The engine is powerful runs on regular, with just the right amount of growl entering the quiet cabin. Nicely contoured leather seats w/2 tone inserts look sharp. Real wood on chunky steering wheel is nice touch, accenting attractive roomy cabin. Heated seats in front and thick carpet give a pampered feel. Tires wear fast with spirited driving, and brake dust coats wheels quickly and is tedious to remove from alloy wheels. Pull up door handles break ladies fingernails, a minor thing. Neon 3rd brake light broke repeatedly cost $600 to replace. Condensation from A/C flooded car 1st trip to FL, dealer provided loaner, repaired A/C replaced carpet, an example of new model bugs to follow. Not a user friendly car to work on with baffles and covers galore-had to visit dealer to replace fog light bulb for example. Overall a great car with a european feel, we had full options except HID headlamps. Replaced it with the 08 redesign and hated it, not as engaging as the original. Too bad.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great driving car, slick manual transmission, dealer service, 4 doors, trunkspace.

Cons: Confusing controls, weird orange display lighting, need manual to set clock, horrible in snow w/all season tires, lots of bugs in 1st year-dealer fixed all.

Mob Moblie — It's the first year for the CTS still looks good, handles good a few electric issues also did not hold it's value to good but it's all mine and paid for but you can't beat the overall handling and spunk

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great car if you need to get somewhere in a hurry
you can carry 3 bodies in the trunk

Cons: Nothing worst then a Caddy going bad ....
when the electrics start to act up they are bad

Cadillac Cts — It is crude and querky like me! A lot of fun to drive. I have had no problems. Mileage is suprisingly good. It has all the options except navigation. Very low mileage - just passed emission test with flying colours! The third brake light is LED and only the dealer can fix it.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Really nice looking

Cons: Just had front brakes & rotors changed at 71,000km - not good. Third brake light is over $1,000 to fix - will never happen.
