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.
Cons: low quality materials inside and changing a light bulb is too complicatedNice looking car, handles well, interior trim not special and Cadillac maintenance is outrageously expensive.
Pros: Basically it's a comfortable sports car
Cons: Maintenance cost (Cadillac pricing)Good car, fast but excellent ride and handling
Pros: It's hard to say what my favorite feature is. I like the power seats, with heat; the Bose stereo and CD player and the steering wheel/column easy controls,. I LOVE that it is dependable and safe!
Cons: I regret that the maintainence/upkeep is so expensive. The oil is expensive and when I replaced the windshield wipers I had price shock.Now that a couple of things have been taken care of, I love my car. There was a problem with water in the back floorboard after any heavy rain; the car is parked on a driveway, not a garage. Everyone thought it was coming from the moon roof but an astute worker took the car apart and found the leaking came from the back windshield. It was replaced and there has been no more leaking. The other minor problem was the air conditioner vent on the passenger side. It didn't work! They fixed it and now it works fine.
Pros: Heated seats.
Cons: Navigation system.I recently passed 50,000 miles and have never had the car in for anything other than routine maintenance. No rattles, squeaks or strange sounds. Fit and function are perfect. Only complaint is the navigation system is overly complicated and costs way too much for annual updates.
Pros: Remote Start
Cons: Car Phone jack in ash tray
Advice: Test Drive one and you'll be hooked!I've had many cars and this is the best to date by far. Speed, Comfort and Style it has it all. I compared many before I decided on the STS. The keyless start, ventilated seats, 15 speaker surround sound stereo, GPS screen is big and easy, the console gadgets are very easy to use, all are excellent...I don't think I can do without these gadgets going forward. I'm completely satisfied with my STS.
Pros: fun to drive
Cons: tiny glove box
Advice: drive itWe have had this car for 4 months and 4000 miles. It is a quiet, easy and fun to drive car. It is great on the highway. We just finished a 1800 mile trip and got 24.9 MPG overall. Top was 26.9 MPG on one tankful on a 75 MPH interstate - not too shabby. The keyless feature is great as are so many other features.
Pros: Keyless entry and remote start.
Cons: Seat memory settings are in the computer instead of set on door buttons.
Advice: Bought it based on priceGoing from an Acura to a Cadillac was a real mental challange. The first 3,000 miles have been great. The computer system is too complex (includes a 2.5 hour cd) but I love the MP3 player. GM has some kinks to iron out. Keyless fob, I love it! At first I thought it was a gimmick, but now I am hooked. Living on the edge of the Rocky Mountains, the V-6 is outstanding on the drive from Denver to Summitt County, particularly on the steep approach to the tunnel on I-70. Downside is milage, 19-20 in town and 22 expressway. And that is conservative driving. I love the car, but as with all the new cars it is so complex, I would be afraid to keep it beyond waranty.
