    2009 Cadillac CTS

    Best Cadillac Ive owned

    Pros: To many to list

    Cons: can't think of anything that I don't like.

    My 2009 CTS is the best Cadillac I have ever owned. I've had 11 Cadillacs and this one is the best of the bunch. It is very quiet and has a lot of get up and go. I love it. I've got 12,000 miles and no trouble. It is truly a world class car.

    2006 Cadillac CTS

    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.

    2005 Cadillac CTS - w/1SA

    Pros: Steering Wheel and Radio features

    Cons: The transmission problems

    Advice: Test the car out for a few days if allowed. Then make a decision! I didn't know about my cars problem untill I had the car home!

    I just traded my 04' Toyota Scion Xa in for the 05' Cadillac 2.8L. I had a much smaller car and needed safety for my 1yr old. However all I have had is trouble with this Luxury car. It is only four days old to me now. And the car is not reading my shift modes. When I'm in drive it sometimes thinks I'm in second. The same thing with park it thinks I'm in drive and I sometimes can't get my key out... And so on! Is this a problem with all these CTS cars or do I just have bad luck? Don't know, but I do know foreign cars are definitely better for me now!

    2003 Cadillac CTS - Base

    Pros: the sound system, and style

    Cons: not alot of interior storage

    Advice: go for it!!

    Being a young woman about to head off to college, I was in desperate need of a reliable car, and I found it. For some reason I really had my heart set on an suv, but as soon as I saw the caddy cts, I had to have it. When I test drove the car, it had the best handling of any car I had ever driven. The sound system is amazing, and most of the people my age would die to have a car like mine, definately a show stopper. And I have had no problems with it.

    2003 Cadillac CTS - Base

    Pros: appearance

    Cons: lack of pick-up

    Advice: buy as long as you do not expect a great deal of speed. find a reliable services department - cadillac services is not what it use to be

    lacks power but a stable ride. nervous about reliability. i feel like the car is about to give out. however, that has never happened.

    2006 Cadillac CTS - Base w/1SB

    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 garage

    The 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.

    Great ride, there wasn't anything that I didn't like about the car.
