Raelly nice Car
Cons: fuel economyAll good!
A lot of problems
Pros: The comfort of the vehicle.
Cons: The quality and performance should have gotten the 3.6.I am on a lease with this vehicle. Got it new in 2005. Since then it's had a new transmission, new radiator, new water pump. Just two months ago had to spend $400.00 as the Caddy place said I got some bad gas and had to have the injectors cleaned and all filters replaced. Even though I use Chevron fuel which is what they recommended. I just haven't been happy with the quality of the vehicle. We'll be getting rid of it in December. Thank God all the major repairs were covered under warranty.
Very Nice car
Pros: Turning radius
Cons: Very poor treadlife on the stock tires.We bought the black-on-black 3.6 VVT w/6 speed manual transmission and the full Luxuary option was included. I added the 3M rock chip film protector and exterior/interior protection option. We also upgraded the floor mats and the trunk mat. The Boze 6 CD stereo w/ Navigation system was replaced at the dealership due to an electrical problem.
Pros: Appearance - nice size and very sharp looks
Cons: Major mechanical defects - Cadillac should be ashamed to have an engine fail at 1500 miles
Advice: Avoid this vehicle unless you like having your car in the shop more than in your garageThe quality control on our 2007 CTS was very poor. The electrical system failed twice in the first month of ownership and an engine cylinder failed at less than 1500 miles under normal operating conditions on a busy interstate highway -- very scary. Cadillac replaced the engine but the dealer in Denver acted like it was no big deal for any of this to happen.
Pros: Performance and handling
Cons: Windshield wiper control location
Advice: Get the 3.6 and all the options.Great ride, there wasn't anything that I didn't like about the car.
