Review of the 2004 Cadillac CTS

  • More power and a less offensive interior make the CTS considerably more attractive, but it still can't match the class leaders when it comes to overall execution and fun behind the wheel.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Excellent handling, spacious cabin, alternative look.

  • Cons

    Interior still can't match the class leaders, larger size keeps it from providing nimble feel of its competitors, fussy controls when you add the navigation system.

  • What's New for 2004

    For 2004, the CTS adds a more powerful 3.6-liter V6 in addition to the standard 3.2-liter motor. The base suspension has been modified…

Awesome car

Vehicle: 2004 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5M)

First of all there is more than one trim level and engine option. I have the top trim level one with the upgraded 3.6 L and all wheel drive with the gold emblem package. Love every thing about the car I have bought other cars since this one but love it so much I kept it and still use it. Here 9 years later and about 180,000 miles she is still running strong and fun as hell to drive. I remember when I first test drove it I was in disbelief it was a caddy. Ive owned and remember the devilles, sevilles, and fleetwoods big floaty land yachts, but this is small and sporty, something I used to think wasn't in Cadillacs vocabulary.

I'm very happy with this car! The V6 the 5-speed is a blast. Everyone who rides in it is surprised with the style, ride and sportiness. Driving is fun again

Vehicle: 2004 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5M)

Bought the '04 CTS Sport used in June '09. Had 86k at the time. Fun car to drive. Great performance. So far had to replace the water pump, and throttle body at about a $700 a clip. Seems to go thru tires pretty quick too. Put a new set on about 12k ago and they won't last until next inspection April '12. Overall, got a great deal on this car. Paid about $11k. Still can't believe I paid that amount for such a sweet ride. Very reliable. Have taken on long road trips and love the performance.

What's New for 2004

For 2004, the CTS adds a more powerful 3.6-liter V6 in addition to the standard 3.2-liter motor. The base suspension has been modified with new shocks, while the Sport package is now available on all models. The interior receives a slight refresh in the form of a color-keyed center console, additional chrome trim and white lighting. Lastly, an engine water temperature gauge replaces the clock on the dash.
