Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: The ability to set/control personal preferences and the overall LOOK of the car.
Cons: Glove box too small.
Advice: Test drive it and you'll buy one....no doubt.This is what a luxury sport sedan should be! The look is SHARP and the amenities are numerous, even in the base model. I've had it for a month and I still can't get over the outstanding comfort and precise handling. Acceleration is very competent and the automatic transmission is flawless. Just a great car. I'll be buying GM stock !
Pros: DVD entertainment system with Bose stereo system
Cons: No wheel well protection (stylish mud flaps)
Advice: Purchase this vechicle!!!Unbelievable handling and ride for a truck of this size. I have the all wheel drive. Absolutely no wind or road noise. Finally an American maufacturer that built (in my opinion) the finest SUV in the world.
Pros: Build quality
Cons: Needs more power!
Advice: Research the car you are buying. Take your time.Smooth, quiet, powerful. Finally I have the car I have always lusted after in my driveway. The build quality is very good. The DTS even has side air bags in the back seat! Dual climate control, great XM radio, seats that can fit anyone. Styling is great! Front wheel drive for the snowy day. And the remaining Cadillac warranty transfered at no cost.
Pros: sound system
Cons: Color (black) Clear coat scratches easily.
Advice: Try it.Good sound system. The ride is quiet. Powerful car that looks good. I drove a 1998 CATERA before this one and was suprised at the difference in handling and turning radius.
Pros: It's Handeling
Cons: Small Glove box
Advice: Buy the luxury modelI've owned other Cadillac and Infinity's and this car is by far light years ahead of them all... The performance is better then I thought and the more you drive it the better it feels..... I was mostly impressed with the comfort of the seating. Truly a great car for the money. Features in the CTS are missing in more expensive cars but standard with the CTS.. GREAT CAR!!!!!!
Cons: Dashboard looks too much like lesser GM SUVs/lack of Low-Range
Advice: Be prepared for gas-pump shock, but otherwise BUY IT, won't regret it.This was the smoothest, quickest full-size SUV I've ever had the pleasure of driving. It's by far the most striking in appearance, and its no-apologies 345hp and throaty induction sound made even the most mundane errands seem exciting.
Pros: radio vloume control wheel on steeringwheel
Cons: A pillar location takes some getting use to
Advice: buy onehandles extremly well. needs a little more power, but the 220 hp is enough to pass most other vehicles and it gets good gas mileage.
