Good except Halfshafts and Differential!
By Kenny Sanders on
2004 Cadillac CTS-V 4dr Sedan (5.7L 8cyl 6M)
This car is a blast to drive.Six speeds of pure satisfaction! The suede inserts of the middle portion of the seats are a very fresh look. I would love to give this car all 10's just on fun factor alone. But the build quality of the differential and halfshafts for this car is a horror show disaster waiting to happen. GM needs do some recalls to the differential/halfshafts to get this car safe. How they have the nerve to pass a V6 drivetrain into a V8 boggles me.
The NAV radio is one of the best ones yet! Heated seats. Plenty of gauge choices. G-Force meter! Advanced driving competition mode choices.
The differential is too weak. You have to have it replaced several times. 2004-2005 also have smaller 1.25" halfshafts. They will break during a spirited 1st-2nd shift. GM caught on in 2006 and increased the halfshaft size to 1.50". GM should recall all 04- 05 halfshafts. Same for the differential.
