2005 Cadillac STS V8 AWDReview

Stellar Deliciousness — Northstar V8 LH2 320hp / 315lb-ft AWD 5 speed auto (2005) 4200lbs 17/24mpg 0-60 under 6 seconds Bose 5.1 Studio Surround (14 speakers) Only disappointment in the interior is the somewhat creaky plastic trim between the two front seats.. everywhere else is spectacular.

Pros: Delicious looks, great engine (4200lb luxo rice burner), plush interior with lots and lots of features: heat/cool seats, 14 speaker Bose 5.1 Studio Surround, Nav, one-touch windows all around, almost everything you could ask for.

Cons: AWD trans needs reflashed after 20k miles for jerking (only once and cheap), glove-box.

Powerful, Nimble, Yet Smooth. — This car looks awesome, and rides the same. Comforts and Conveniences are everywhere. I feel surrounded by luxury and power. Excellent car and style. I am not thrilled with the lack of leg room for rear passengers, but as long as they are children it can be overlooked.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The looks are Awesome. The styling is sleek and ageless.  This sporty design is a great addition to the stereotypical Caddy sedans.

Cons: The rear seating is smaller than a grown adult would like.  Storage is minimal in this car.

Sweet Ride! — Nice looking, great driving; no real problems, burn a bit of oil but knew that upon buying her... still very happy and love the drive. One more thing if needing a paint job, being 3 stage paint process it becomes expensive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: fashionable, comfortable, affordable.

Cons: Poor turning ratio.

I love my 2005 STS because of the e Northstar V8. It is fast, and powerful, and safe. I am about to buy a 2004 Crossfire. I read reviews and specs. This drove like a Wolf in Sheeps clothing. It is fast, pretty, and safer than many cars on the road 2 or 4 doors.
