    No Regrets — Love how it corners like if it is on tracks. The power is amazing for a six cylinder. I get about 25 MPG on hywy and that is averaging 78 MPH. Love the quiteness of the ride to. Buy with no regrets

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great style and handling and very quiet ride. Also requires only 87 octane since it is direct injected.. awesome Bose premium stereo sound and built in HDD and can pause, Rewind/FF radio

    Cons: Rear leg room, rear trunk lid/opening is limited in height opening size.

    Timeless Style With An Enjoyable Ride. — The car has a timeless style supported by low fuel cost and a response engine. The ride is smooth and the maintenance on the vehicle has been minimal, just routine oil changes. This is not your grandfather's caddie, but just as smooth riding. What I prefer is a larger back seat.

    Pros: Low maintenance, handles well, sharp looking, a dream to drive.

    Cons: I prefer a larger back seat.

    Great Performance — Love the way the car looks, how handles and how it performs. It has a great sound system and the XM radio is great for short or long trips. No major issues with the car. I prefer a larger back seat, I have children.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Smooth ride handles well no major problems

    Cons: I prefer a larger back seat

    Caddy — This is a good ride no problems. the gas mileage could have been better but the next one will be since they are now more fuel efficient. My next car will be a cadillac I have always enjoyed them and it's elegant.

    Pros: it's classy

    Cons: gas mileage

    9 Out Of 10 — Long trips in the car are no problem very comfortable plenty of power. Due to the extra option i choose of dbl sunroof it has a slight bit of road noise to it whether its in town or on highway. Only using premium gas can be a drag but that comes with driving a luxury car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Just about everything in this car is great, I've had no issues what so ever.

    Cons: Can run only on premium gas, pricey new.

    Cadillac Cts A Bargain For A Sport/luxury Driven Owner. — So much Luxury for so very little money. I bought this instead of a 2011 Chevrolet Cruze LTZ, because it was cheaper. Performance is great for a this size of vehicle, especially with the sport suspension package. This car gets a lot of attention, has room for the family, and is amazing in the snow (AWD). I bought it 4 years old, with 40k on the odometer and only had to fix the passenger seat switch. Fuel economy is a little below what I'd expect but thats the trade off for an AWD sedan powered by a V6.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: If you want a current looking luxury car with all of the bells and whistles, look for a used CTS like mine, you won't regret it.

    Cons: There isn't a thing I can knock this car for.

    Gm Stepped Up With This One! — I love this car! It's been great very little issues, and nothing that wasn't covered under warranty. The back seats lack space, but are comfy. the front seats are awesome. It's a sports sedan! It's got great power and handling. the fuel economy is great, especially on the high with the cruise on!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Beautifully designed car with plenty of power, great handling, surprising fuel economy, and comfortable ride, especially in long trips.

    Cons: back seats lack space but are comfy, needs 60/40 rear seat. trunk is small

    The New Standard Of The World — Handling and braking are superb. Always feel sure-footed in the corners, wet or dry. Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires are amazing. Gas, maintenance and other operating costs are fairly low. Top marks for Cadillac service. Build quality is top notch. Almost no issues with mechanical or electrical systems, or interior trim pieces. The car is an absolute stunner to see on the street. After 3 years with the car, I still get compliments on it regularly.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great looks and performance.  Best American Car on the road.

    Cons: Can get pricey with desireable options.

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

    Pros: looks,interior and power...oh did i mention looks?

    Cons: can't handle being the center of attention
