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.
