2003 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5M)


Review

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.


Best Features

The sports button in the automatic model adds a lot of fun to the ride.


Worst Features

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.

2003 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I purchased my CTS in February. I
actually came out an Escalade 2002 for
this vehicle. I love the design, the
feel and most of all the brakes.


Best Features

What I like best is the seating and leg room. This is the first vehicle I have owned where I can sit and both my shoulders and neck are comfortable when my head is against the headrest. As a matter of fact this is the first time I have been able to use the headrest with out difficulty.


Worst Features

Add more installation to hear less road noise. more leg room for backseat passengers

Review

I had to order my CTS from the
dealership,It took 3 months for my car
to arrive and I tell you once I
recieved my phone call from Capitol
Cadillac I rushed over and my CTS was
ready for me to take her home. It was
well worth the wait, I had so many
people come to me asking can they look
inside,that they couldn't beleive it
was made by Cadillac.This car is very
powerful it looks intimidating yet
classy I am sold with Cadillac's
forever just to think that I wanted a
Mercedes C-class when I testdrove one I
was not sold,then I saw a picture of
the CTS I told my dad this is the car I
want I didnt have to test drive it!!!
lol.


Best Features

my favorite feature would be the exterior, the comfortable leather seats,and the nav.system and the air bags


Worst Features

I wasnt too crazy about the buttons and knobs it look pretty cheap it could've had more wood grain around the stereo/control area and the door panel look cheap.

Review

I have had a Jag XJ6 in 92-94, Lexus
ES300, BMW 5 Series and this CTS is by
far the most fun and turns the most
heads when driving.

Great performance and FUN!


Best Features

The interior and the dash.


Worst Features

Memory on the drivers seat should be part of the basic package.

Review

I have owned a number of cars,
including a baby BMW, but this is the
car that is most fun to drive. I have
to wrestle the keys from my 16 year old
daughter who says everyone thinks she
looks hot in it. Gave a ride to my
son's 15 year old friend and could be
rich if I had a dime for every time he
said "this car is so cool".
I have always wanted to be an American
car owner...now I am without regret and
without sacrifice


Best Features

love the looks and the driving pleasure. I added an after market wood trim kit softening the interior...lots of complements of that. The seats are great, very comfortable and rich.


Worst Features

More Power...pin me to the seats!!!
