    Love The Car, And Its Engine... — I love the engine. It goes 0-60 in just 4.7 secs. Its also a v6 which does mean it has good mileage. It gives about 18 to 22 mpg, so its nice and affordable. I've had the best time in my life when I drove it for the first time. I would definitely recommend this car to a friend not only because of luxury and affordability, but also because I love it...

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: does not have a navigation system

    I Love My Caddi — It is so cool. It's a pleasure to drive or be a passenger in. People take notice. Its roomy enough for us, our kids and all of our shopping. Didn't think of myself as the Cadillac type but now I can't see us driving any thing else!!! wow! I really don't know how much more I could say.

    Pros: Its cool

    Cons: haven't found any yet!

    Fun, Super-quiet, Sporty Sedan — Love the performance and experience. I especially enjoy driving this car in traffic or on the freeway, as the ride is so smooth and effortless. This car is not for those with large families, as the back seat does not provide a ton of space, but still can seat 4 quite comfortably. I would recommend this for those who want to have a car that gets from A to B with some flair.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Excellent handling, performance, acceleration, driving experience

    Cons: gas mileage, backseat capacity

    Smooth — I like this car and the only thing I have had to do to this car is change the oil. It is a bit expensive being only synthetic oil. The water pump is leaking lightly, but still going strong. I like this car but I could use some more room. I have put over 30k on it in two years and nothing has gone wrong. It runs like a top. The parts are very expensive to replace!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Nice ride, classy look,

    Cons: tire rods creak now and then, water pump needs changed already with only 50k, not good in the snow, not much room.  If you like roomy cars go with the DTS

    Everything I Want, Besides The 556hp Cts-v Engine. :p — I like how all the windows are automatic going down, and the front two are going up as well. ;) I have driven from the east coast to the mid-west, 1500 Miles, and It was a very easy, comfortable ride, my legs weren't stiff, I enjoyed being in the car more than out, except for sight seeing, and I averaged high 20's 25-29MPG throughout the trip. Once it got flat I started getting 30+. Love this car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: CAN get 34 MPG on the Highway, when you hit the sport button, it gets up and moves.
    It handles amazing with the sport tires, good to look at, and is super comfortable

    Cons: It does only get about 15MPG in the city, and the maintenance isn't as cheap as my other cars. But I have only had old beaters that I've worked on myself, like a Crown-Vic.

    And dear lord is it hot inside when it gets above 90. The leather makes it terrible. But cools down pretty quick.

    I purchased this car over the other two because it's a mix of the luxury style of the BMW and the American muscle of the Dodge.
