Consumers Reports has described this as a car as one to avoid. And now the subsequent CTS model is beginning to show the same reliability shortcomings. I've owned Honda and Toyotas in the past, and the difference in reliability is a stark contrast. Unless you have unlimited funds and patience, I'd suggest you avoid this car at all cost. This car is a perfect example of why GM is on the verge of bankrupcy, and why it's best that the American taxpayer should not be responsible for bailing them out!
The cruise control design is the best I've used.
Give Toyota or Honda the taxpayer bailout funds so they can buy GM, fire the management and union, and introduce quality/cost control and improve product reliability!
