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

Review

Just a word to the wise. Cadillac patented all parts for this car right down to the battery. There is a microchip in the battery that ensures you buy an AC delco. I had to have some repairs done on the head gasket seals and the power steering had a leak, and the repairs cost over $2,300 just for those two. If you are thinking about buying a CTS and expect to "trick" the car by buying other parts, just look for a different car because I had the battery replaced with a non-AC Delco battery and the car didn't detect the microchip and told OnStar I stole the vehicle and they disabled the car until I replaced it with good old AC Delco. If you are rich, this is a good car for you.

Performance. Fuel ecomomy

Suggested Improvements

Ride stinks. Small trunk Tires followed ruts made by semi trucks. Front seat has to be all the way forward to fit a car seat in back with the growth on the back of the front seats
