    A Great Car! — Sleek & Stylist! - When this particular Cadillac CTS model was first shown, I recall being "wowed" and in awe. What's not to like? It's bold, stealth-like angular lines remind me of the F117 Fighter Jet! The squatty front end giving way to the crisp symmetrical lines running from fore to aft. The view from behind show cases the widened stance cleverly concealed within the flawlessly flared fenders as the trademark taillights bookend the patented tapered CTS rear end! Whether sitting still, rolling down a country road or making it's mark on an open California freeway, this car is a thing of beauty and an engineering masterpiece! The CTS was destined for greatness!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: A well built and attractive auto.  When the Cadillac CTS was first revealed, I was in awe of the CTS.  With the bold and stealth-like angular lines coupled with it's squatty front end.  With the crisp fore to aft beauty, it was evident that this car would be popular!  

    Cons: No navigation.

    Cadillac Cts Worth The Price — I bought this car used and put roughly 15-20k miles on it. I have two children and they fit with plenty of room so the seats wouldn't be kicked. The trunk is HUGE - you could almost fit 3 sets of golf clubs. Used this as a grocery getter many times as opposed to using our Yukon. This car was definitely worth the investment.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Enough power in the engine to be fun and fuel efficient but still leave the room for excitement. Huge back seat and trunk area.

    Cons: Not Great in the snow without snow tires.

    Fun To Drive — When I saw this car for the first time i LOVED it! I had great acceleration very comfortable ride and fun to drive as well with the music up high! The only negative i can think of for this car would be the cost to maintain, It must be taken to the dealers for best upkeep, which makes it costly!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Luxurious car, awesome seats for driver, great sound from speakers heated seats are great.

    Cons: No leg room in the back seats, not alot of trunk space, needs spare tire, pricey to maintain.

    Never Had Any Problems Out Of This Car Until Now — I really enjoyed this vehicle until the timing chain gave out with no prewarning. Vehicle shut down on beltway while I was on my way to get a new water pump installed. Unfortunately, I am not able to invest in the labor cost to repair the timing chain.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great Car

    Cons: No warning of timing chain breakdown

    I Love My Cts. Great Car! — I got my 2006 CTS used with 3,800 miles in perfect condition. The car is very attractive, solid, sturdy, heavy, comfortable, safe, also for the kids in the back (6 airbags). No repairs needed, good cost of ownership, good gas mileage. This car is fun to drive under any conditions and has great traction and steering. I only wished I had the 3.6L engine instead of the 2.8L engine, but performance of the 2.8L engine is still ok.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Very solid car, smooth drive, great handling

    Cons: Interior could more appealing

    An Excellent Car — An excellent car. About the best you can possibly expect from any V6 sport sedan. Acceleration is extremely strong for a naturally-aspirated V6. Handling is phenomenal. Comfort is wonderful. Build quality is very good. Overall it is an exceptionally good car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Looks, performance, comfort, style, satisfaction

    Cons: Nothing

    2006 Cadillac Cts 3.6-manual — Looks great. Feels great(a bit heavy). The drivers seat is the place to be especially with a 6 speed std. Drove it at night and the guages are perfect and envigorating. You feel sensible yet rich when driving this car. The controls are simple and the mileage is pretty good too!

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

    Pros: Perfect, stylish, smart, build quality, space, driving feel

    Cons: Automatic feels heavy-get the standard!
