I have the luxury sport model with NAV.
Overall the car is fun to drive but has
been in the shop many times for (3
coolant leak which they cant seem to
find, and just recently I was 200 miles
away from home and the check engine
light came on and the car wouldnt go
over 55 mph. So I called onstar
through the safe and sound deal in the
car and they diagnosed it over the
phone while I was driving. It turned
out to be a fuel pump sensor failure.
It wasn't recognizing the speed of the
engine to supply the right amount of
fuel to the engine. The onboard
computer finally compensated the
problem and I made it home.
ONSTAR is a wonderful tool for everyday
driving that you know things can be
done through the satelite system and do
a diagnostic check of the vehicle while
you are driving. Great feature!!!!
Also the styling is awesome with the
retro look of it.
More legroom, and perhaps better use of
plastic moldings(little to cheap
looking), Maybe some more wood trim on
the dash. Next model a big V8
I am finding that the vehicle consumes
an extraordinary amount of gasoline on
routine trips. I find myself at the
gas pump twice a week.
Change the rims. That's really the
only feature about the car that I don't
like. I also feel that in order to
accomplish the "look" of a Cadillac
LUXURY vehicle, too many of the
accoutrements are a la carte which
drives the price up higher than I
really wanted to spend.
FRIST THIS CAR TURNS HEADS AND HAS
FOLKS ASKING QUESTIONS ALL THE TIME. I
HAVE THE COPPER-SUNBRUST (A COLOR I
HEAR THEY HAVE DISCONTINUED-GREAT FOR
ME MAKES MINE A "LIMITED EDITION").
SECOND I LOVE THE SOUND OF THE POWER
WHEN YOU OPEN IT UP-ITS THE SOUND OF
LIONS LET LOOSE!
I HAVE NOT HAD ANY PROBLEMS THUS FAR
EXCEPT FOR A BROKEN A/C DIRECTIONAL
KNOB-THESE ARE MADE ON THE CHEAP SIDE
FOR SUCH A FINE CAR. IF YOU WANT A
SMOOTHER RIDE FORGET THE SPORTS PACK
WITH THE 17" WHEELS. HOWEVER ON FLAT
LAND THE SPORT PACK HANDLING IS
AWESOME.THE CAR IS
WONDERFUL,FAST,NIMPLE AND WONDERFUL TO
LOOK AT. (DON'T KNOW IF ITS JUST ME BUT
THERE SEEMS TO BE A LOT OF BRAKE DUST)
NAVIGATION SYSTEM. THE
RADIO/CD SYSTEM-BOSE IS GREAT. I LOVE
THE VOICE COMMAND SYSTEM TO CHANGE
STATIONS. THE SEATS ARE GREAT.I LOVE
USING THE DVD-NAV. SYSTEM TO PLAY DVD
MOIVES. THE TAPE RECORDING SYSTEM IS
GREAT IN THE SUN-VISOR-I LOVE MY CAR
AND FIND REASONS TO DRIVE IT!
AUTO STARTING WINDSHEID WIPERS. A/C AND
HEAT CONTROLS AND VENTS FOR THE REAR
SEAT SECTION.TELESCOPING STEERING-WHEEL
PUT THE ICING ON THE CAKE. AND LAST BUT
NOT LEAST MORE LIGHTING INSIDE.
The car is really fun to drive, but the
cabin is extremely noisy. Noises are
everywhere- dashboard, seats, windows,
doors, you name it! Within the first
three weeks I had the car, I had to
send it back to the dealer for service.
Other than these "little" problems, the
car has a comfortable ride (although
the rear has very little leg room),
performance is fine, and the engine is
really powerful. The dashboard controls
are very easy to access, too, sompared
to similar models.
The sports button in the automatic
model adds a lot of fun to the ride.
More leg room in the rear, the gas and
break pedals are somewhat hard and
after a while the right foot and leg
get really tired and sore.
