Gorgeous, Great Ride, Sporty — There is nothing to dislike about this car, I just seem to be a SUV person. Great ride in turns, hugs the road, great moon roof panoramic view. All the bells and whistles, kuxury without breaking the bank. This car is on par with much costlier cars.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great ride, comfort, quiet

Cons: None

This Is A Very Good Looking Car That Is Totally Reliable And Stylish. — For pure good looks and reliability this is a good buy. You don't have high performance here but you can if you want it up the line. It is economical, comfortable, and the silver is looks good almost always. It has some miles on it now, but now it doesn't round trip it 600 miles to Cincinnati 8 times a year. We like the AWD and think it compares nicely to a BMW 5 series x drive for a lot less money or worry. Not in power and performance, but in AWD comfort, style, and safety.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Nice looking economy level Cadillac.  Like the looks, the AWD, and warranty.  GM treats you well.  No problems ever, we ran it way more miles than anticipated.

Cons: A little tight on entry/exit for a big guy, but it is really ever driven by my wife.  There are more gadgets and goodies to be had, but this is fine.

What Else Can I Say..."it's A Cadillac Man" — Performance - I was surprised that a little 3.0 liter V-6 direct injection had this much power but, that said I'm not looking for a Hot Rod Caddy. Handles well for luxury car and the braking is very good. Quality - Cadillac being GM's luxury brand they put a little more attention to the details of fit, finish and the materials used. No repairs or problems since it's purchase. Appearance - The wife has loved the looks of the CTS since it's inception but, every one has difference of opinion of what they like. Cost of ownership - Cadillac takes care of all the maintenance for the first four years. The fuel mileage is about 28 mpg on the road at 1k I expect it to improve some as it rolls up a few more miles. Fun Factor - I like driving it because of the smooth and quite ride making a road trip less tiring and with the gadgets on it you stay entertained.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Nice car and would likely purchase another one.

Cons: I think the price is a little steep for what you get. you could buy a Buick La Crosse for about the same price with many more options than the CTS but, what are going to do when she' s got her heart set on the Caddy.
