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


Review

This is one of the most exciting
automobiles that I have ever had the
pleasure of owning.I've had a few minor
problems,one with the cumputer system
and a power window connector loose.
This car handles very well a all speeds
and I just came up from Fla. to Mass
and at an average speed of 75/80 mph I
was getting 27.1 mph with the A/C on.I
do find the controls confusing as some
people have said. I don't care which
car you get into today thare all scarey
when you look at the electronics.


Best Features

The design is just a step into the future.


Worst Features

More trunk space or deck lid carrier

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


Review

I bought a CTS with the 3.6L engine and
automatic. The ride is much quieter and
the road imperfections get absorbed
very well, but there is a slight sense
of disconnect compared to my previous
car (2003 Tiburon). However, the car
handles (even w/o
the Sport pkg) extremely well. Body
lean is negligible, and steering is
precise. I don't consider the interior
to be luxury oriented as much as
techncially sumptuous. It's definitely
upscale looking and wood belongs in
furniture and buildings, not cars.
It's great to feel good about owning
a "reward" car that's made in the USA.
Way to go GM and all you Lansing plant
workers! Great job!!


Best Features

Strong engine, smooth shifting and variable mode transmission, soft interior textures, seats are firm but not too soft, great driving position and instrumentation. I can read the information center screen even in bright sun!


Worst Features

A place to put my cell phone in the console, more storage bins in the trunk, a locking fuel cover, an overhead sunglass compartment, manual shift option on auto and a larger glove box. All piddling complaints.

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


Review

A very nice looking car. As a previous
cadillac holder, I expected a more
luxurious interior with more
amenities.Had to purchase the available
packages but it appears stripped with a
lower price to attract new younger
purchasers. Car is small inside but
very enjoyable to drive. Not really the
best sedan for company in the rear as
it is cramped.Nevertheless,very
enjoyable in the city and to park.


Best Features

The car handles beautifully and has an attractive exterior.


Worst Features

Make the car wider and with more room in the back.

Review

I got this car with every option and I
have been extremely impressed. The
look and drive are excellent. I have
had BMWs and this car replaced a
Mercedes SLK. It is as good as these
vehicles. It is much larger inside
then the 330 which I considered before
this purchase. The road noise is
almost non-existence in the car. I
was a little concerned about the
quality but have been pleasantly
surprised. This car is rocket with
260 horsepower. It really is
responsive to drive input.


Best Features

The navigation system is awesome and I would never buy another car without XM radio again. The ability to command the car by voice is pretty cool to. I really like the climate control as compared to Mercedes. The technology in this car is world class.


Worst Features

A better feel to door when closing. Crome exhaust tips. More wood on the dash, for $44,000 the interior could look more sophisticate. Over all this car is very impressive.
