Fast But Not Gonna Get Any Faster — The car is not to expensive and it really gets up and goes when u need it to. Fairly good gas mileage. The interior is very nice as well as the sound system hits pretty good. I believe it has a 10-12" sub in the back that really its when u crank it up

Pros: Speed

Cons: Not very customizable

2004 Cadillac Cts — Well this car was an impulse buy. Like so many of mine. I really like the power of the V6, 263 horsepower. The handling is amazing. I love the interior. The outside is cool, but it would be better to have a two door. The mileage could be better. 23.5 average and 26 highway. For a V6 it could be better. I love the black. The winter driving in this car sucks. I wish It had all wheel drive, and heater seats. Overall I like the car, but I wish I had a cheaper sports car instead.

Pros: Handling, performance for a V6, styling, interior

Cons: mileage, winter driving, expensive, not a camaro

Illinois Cts Fan — The performance of my 2004CTS is outstanding. It provides a tight responsive drive feel and is without a doubt , dollar for dollar a great value. My only negative comment is on the paint. The front of the vehicle is showing signs of the road. Rock chips seem to multiple quickly.

Owner for 1 years, 5 months

Miles Driven per Year:60,000

Pros: exceptional styling, responsive road feel, excellent fuel mileage

Cons: exterior finish lacks durability

Great Performance --- A Wolf In Sheeps Clothing. — An amazing balance --- very quick, yet runs on regular and gets 27 mpg highway at 70 mph. Finally some engineering from the US (and GM yet) which is world class --- the automatic transmission has no delay in shifts, and yet is very smooth. Handling is excellent in spite of slightly soft shocks and OEM tires. Seats are great for long trips too.

Owner for 3 years, 9 months

Miles Driven per Year:8,000

Pros: Excellent Engineering & Performance

Cons: Suspension is mite soft

Great Little Sports Sedan — This one is really a family car, but at one point it was mine, and all my friends on here have probably seen me driving this as much as anything... The car has the 3.6 vvt and as Chris Wirth on here will say it would keep up with his 06 mustang quite well until 65ish. Handling is decent, good feedback, but the tires we have on it right now are weaksauce, that and theres a touch to much body roll for a "sport" package car. The Bose system however is great, and it is a comfy way to get around town. The problems (all covered under warrenty) included a whining rear end, and brakes that warp to easily (been resurfaced at the dealer three times in 50k miles). Really its a nice low key cruiser with some unexpected pep.

Pros: Mid 14 second car(ours is a factory freak, most are high 14 cars). Comfy and nice looking in my opinion.

Cons: Not as solid feeling as a comparable BMW, but with more get up and go.

Luxury, Performance In A 6 Cylinder Car — I love this car and really can't believe how quick it is. I've tied six Mustang GT's in drag racing. It has great styling. I love the wood grain shifter and steering wheel. It was soft in the corners before I added aftermarket front and rear sway bays.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 3,42:1 Rear end and 4 valves per cylinder 3.6L make a very fast 6 cyl car.  Sport mode makes real world changes.

Cons: Needed after market anti-sway bars.
