The old adage of "never buy a first
model year" holds true with this car.
I feel that I have spent more time
driving the car to the dealership for
repairs than enjoying it on the road.
From noising transmission (which was
replaced) to a faulty engine cooling
system (which took 3+ weeks to repair)
and other problems have kept me from
enjoying this car. Although Cadillac
hit a home run with the CTS's style and
looks, they still need to work on
engineering and reliability to truly
compete with their foreign
Style. Five-speed manual transmision
adds fun to the drive.
I ordered my CTS in Dec. 2002 and took
delivery in Jan. 2003. This is my
first Cadillac and probably won't be my
last. The CTS is a fun car to drive
and will definetly turn heads on the
street. I ordered my CTS with just
about every option. The upgraded Bose
stereo / DVD Navigation is awesome. I
would strongly suggest the Sport
Package for those who enjoying driving
