Fastert 400hp On The Road — I love this car. It is very very fast and more response even to the the cts-v 2009-2015 automatic cars. The interior is in very good shape. I have installed an all aluminum performance radiator. This is a wonderful car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very nice

Cons: consumes gas

This Is A 4 Door Corvette — This 2005 CTS-V is nothing more than a 4 door Corvette. Straight-line acceleration is a real thrill and seat crusher and handling is remarkably good for a vehicle of this weight. I am selling to get a newer model (2009-2012) that has even more power.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Awesome Power and Handling, Very sharp looks.

Cons: Gas mileage of 18-22 is average

A True American Muscle Car Wrapped In Luxury Styling. — This is the kind of car that most people don't see coming. Most people have zero idea just how powerful this Cadillac is and are very surprised when they see it accelerate past them. If you have ever wanted a sports car without sacrificing comfort and size, this is the car for you.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Incredible power and acceleration.  Great looks and comfort.  

Cons: This is not the easiest manual to drive.  There is so much torque in the first two gears that it can be a little jerky.  Cruise control is a little too sensitive.

One Of My Best — well after owning a couple other fast cars this one is by far my favorite very fast, acceleration and top end but what do you expect with 405hp stk. the color isnt my favorite for this car but i got a good deal on it so i went for it and now i have no regrets

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: everything, comfort and performance

Cons: could use a little more power and a sloppy shifter

Caddy V — this car is cool because it is such a sleeper. most people dont know what the cts-v is. most dont expect a Z06 engine in a cadillac. when i first brought it to work (a gm dealer mind you) the old timers were all blown away that the car was a 6 speed. then they found out how fast it was and all tried to buy it from me.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: 6 speed, pretty quick

Cons: CAGS, wheelhop

Killer Brakes, Killer Engine, Killer Trans With A Shifter Upgrade. — It's very fast, holds 5 people and gets acceptable mileage if I can keep my foot out of it. It has been totally reliable. The best thing is that it's stealthy. Few people know what it is. Most people think it a regular CTS...but it aint!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 400 horsepower, available only with a manual. Poseurs need not apply

Cons: Because this one is mine.

2005 Cts-v — It's faster than yours! Aggresive acceleration, fade free braking, sticks like flypaper. Room for 5 big trunk and can beat all but the most expensive supercars on the street. Takes premium fuel but it's so much fun I just don't care!

Pros: Crushing acceleration, sweet sleeper

Cons: Premium fuel, tires very costly

Cadillac Has Outdone Themselves This Time — acceleration is great. no internal repairs. sleek, black, beautiful. funnest car i've been in. I would totaly recommend this great car to either my friends or anyone else who would have an interest in this fantastic machine. I hope to see tem make newer models soon, the only way the car could be better is if the mileage would increase.

Pros: on board computer, speed, beautiful

Cons: gas mileage,high insurance

Amazing, well-rounded car. The CTS-V is packed with performance, but can be surprisingly tamed if the driver chooses to do so. The car is relatively quiet in tour mode, and is very comfortable, even w... Read More

Review By GlennVA

This car is awesome. Many a family had no choice of a sports car with four doors. Cadillac has a winner with the 2014 CTS-V, but only if the new owner specifies a 6 speed manual transmission. Read More
