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

2005 Cts-v — I love my car! It is the first car I have ever owned that didn't involve some kind of compromise. To the untrained eye it may look like a normal CTS, but it has the same powertrain as a Corvette. That means it has a 6.0 L LS 2 V8 that produces 400 BHP with a 6 speed manual transmission. If Thurston Howell III and Mad Max built a car, this would be it! Debbie Downer says: The Interior finish is short-sighted, with the black finish flaking off of the radio controls. GM added a computer chip to the transmission that forces you to shift from 1st to 4th under "normal" acceleration, in order to be compliant with Federal MPG mandate. It does not engage if you are accelerating hard of short shifting. You can replace the chip for about $20.00, but if you get caught you will likely forfeit any warranty protection.

Pros: Power, Luxury, Classic American Badge

Cons: Interior finish, Transmission

A Great Car All Around — This is by far the most fun car i've ever owned. It has the performance of a sports car with the luxory of a sedan. This car has a little over 400 horses and will do 0 to 60 in 4.1 seconds. This is a very fun car to drive and will give me the gas mileage i need. I love this car

Pros: fun and has plenty of room

Cons: hard to find 20" wheels to fit this car

Its An Old Persons Car With A Hammer Under The Bonit — Finally America has made a good all around car. Its fast, reliable, HANDLES WELL( FINALLY), practicale and fairly priced. I only drove it for about 10 min but I was very impressed. The only good Cadillac ever made. solid car, 400bhp v8 motor. 0-60 in 4.8 sec, 160mph top speed. just as fast as an Audi A6

Pros: Handling, shows great, speed, comfort, warrenty is great, corvette motor

Cons: It bons everytime you( take seatbelt off, turn the key, open the door) that gets every annoying.

Stick Out Like A Sore Thumb... — The worst part about own this car is sticking out. The best part about owning this car is sticking out :) In a world of BMWs and Audis this is a bargain. Mental acceleration, strong brakes, and distinctive styling, and all the amenities a luxury car should have, the worst part about owning this car is having to say, "I drive a Cadillac."

Pros: Crisp handling, respectable ride quality, very strong brakes, distinctive styling, tolerable fuel economy, 400-horsepower

Cons: Expensive materials that look cheap, stiff ride makes for some rattles over rough roads, poor city fuel mileage.

Blows Me Away Every Time I Step On The Gas. — I love just about everything about this car. From the power to the appearance, it is just the most bang for your buck you can get. To top it off, it's a Cadillac so people automatically associate that with classy.

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

Pros: This car is pretty amazing.  It has ridiculous power for a Cadillac and handles even better.  It's also really good looking.

Cons: Pedal E-brake.  A hand E-brake would be a bit funner.

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
