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!

What A Look — Love the CTS. Only problem? It's not a CTS-V! Also love the 09's solution to the rather small interior. Now I have to save my money, since GM's come up with a new V... Handles and looks like an entry-level lux-touring-sporty car. Wish there was more aftermarket tuner stuff. Gas mileage for the V6 has been respectable. It would be better if I didn't drive it like I stole it all the time... I've had 3 warranty repairs so far. In my book that's a little higher than average.

Pros: Performance, looks

Cons: 3 warranty repairs and a recall...not a good record.

Be Distinguished — The CTS is one of the greatest American designs. It has lots of character and it stands out. Interior is nice and special although the car misses some equipments like a telescopic steering, but hey, once you have everything, you'll lack one very important thing and hat is: DREAMS. Performance is great and reliability is good. Well, in few words: you feel distinguished once behind its wheel and with half the price of its German siblings. I added the front grille. A sportier front bumper and a rear apron are on the way ;)

Pros: Great design inside out, good performance, fair price, free service for 100000 kms... What would you want more... for the time being?

Cons: No accessories (I installed the CTS-V mesh grille which I bought via internet). Wind noise is a bit high when on highways and that's about it.

Sporty And Luxurious — This car is really a good solid car that gives BMW 3-series and Mercedes C-class a run for their money. Being from Europe I'm spolied with great cars, so it's refreshing to see a great competitive car come from the U.S.

Pros: Comfortable, good handling, stable, silent, good power

Cons: Base prices is ok, but as soon as you put some extra features in the car the price goes way up.

Car Has Strong Acceleration And A Smooth Ride, Phenomanel Braking. — It is my grandmas car but she let me drive it today. I have to say the car is amazing. From the sharp looks on the outside, to the leather interior, to the strong engine the car is a beauty. I've always loved Cadillac's and this was the first one I've driven. I was impressed with the smooth quiet acceleration and the impressive engine power. I found that the brakes performed exceptionally well at higher speeds. The ride itself is a smooth one. I recommend this car to any Cadillac lover, although I would take the CTS-V over this model but either way its an amazing car.

Pros: Braking, Accelration, Interior, On-Star

Cons: None that I could tell

Cheap Interior, Average Acceleration And Handling, Not Worth The Ticket. —

I recently had the opportunity to test-drive a 2006 Cadillac CTS with the 2.8L V-6 engine and automatic transmission. The vehicle looked very nice, and the interior leather seats were comfortable, although they lacked a full range of adjustment to fit a taller guy like myself. The dash and door panels were an awful black plastic with a cross-hatch pattern that looked like a faux carbon-fiber -- felt very cheap and looked cheap as well. The XM Satellite Radio display was very low-tech and reminded me of the digital climate control displays from the 1980s Buick Reattas. Compared to, for example, the full-color, computer-like display on a 2006 Dodge Charger satellite radio, this one was monochrome orange on a black background. The vehicle test-drove OK -- not fantastic, acceleration was acceptable, but nothing out of the ordinary. I feel that my 2.5L Chrysler Sebring V-6 does a better job of accelerating from a stop. The Cadillac just didn't seem to be worth the $34,000 asking price, even as a base model with no sunroof and few other options. I am a long-time Cadillac fan who has owned Caddies ranging from 1968-1982, and I was really hoping to find the CTS as something I could get excited about. I found it lacking and I don't think that I will go back for another test-drive. Years ago, the Cadillac was the penultimate symbol that you had "arrived" and could afford a luxurious car that catered to your style and personality. The new Cadillacs just don't make the same statement in my mind.

Miles Driven per Year:0

Pros: Nice leather interior, sharp-looking exterior, handling good

Cons: Acceleration so-so, interior plastic parts looked very cheap, antiquated satellite radio digital display.

Beautiful Cadillac Cts Inside And Out. This Car Is Pampered And Washed Very Often. — This is by far the best car i have ever owned. When you are driving this car you always look like your riding in style. It is a great safe and fun family car. This car always looks its best with the car freshly washed, black paint just sparkles and shines in the sun.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Rides in style with great handling and safety. Great family car.

Cons: Hate to get rid of it, its a great car, but I drive too much for work.
