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


Review

I purchased this vehicle used. It was a very high mileage, but I got a steal. It has over 200k, runs like a dream. The CTS combines the luxury of a Benz with the handling and power of a BMW.


Favorite Features

Steering wheel controls, Sports handling

Review

We had this CTS since the month of December in the year of 2007 and this car still drives like new. The only problem on the car is that something is rattling under the hood whenever we take off fast or if the car is in park, but we love this car, and this car is so nice that i'll pass it down to my son for his first car. We love CTS and I recommend it to anybody who likes them.

Review

I bought this car with the money that I saved while in highschool. I first had an oldsmobile intrigue and that was a good first car but not anything amazing by any means. My family has always had plain vehicles and my dad wanted to keep it that way. He did not want me to get this car because he said i couldn't afford it for insurance and repairs. I saved up the cash and bought it outright. I love this car!!! I have had to put a thermostat....very expensive...and a coil pack on it. Repairs are very expensive but I have had no other problems and it runs very good! It drives excellent and the bose stereo is nice. I would recommend this car to anyone. I threw on some 22" rims & its still smooth


Favorite Features

Bose stereo 5 speed manual *comfort* sport tuned suspension


Suggested Improvements

Cost of repairs are quite high. Dealerships are outrageous and most parts are dealer only so even if you can do it yourself, you have to buy from them.

Review

Bought this car brand new. Within first year, rear end was replaced, water pump, radiator, and much more was replaced in first three years. Repairs on this car is extremely high. Everything but the motor and transmission has been replaced. I was hit and insurance totaled my car because it's so expensive to fix. I loved the car but not the hassle of it breaking down.


Favorite Features

The design.


Suggested Improvements

I hope they have since improved everything on this car.
