2004 CTS was purchased new. After 3 years, has been a great car. Love the OnStar, mileage, looks. No problems. After my '85 Caddy disaster, thought I would never buy another Caddy. Just bought a new STS last week. Most reviews are after a few weeks of ownership. After 3 years with the CTS, I bought the STS and my wife still drives the CTS. That speaks volumes.
Looks, paint, OnStar, reliability, gas mileage, turning radius.
Back up sensors or back up camera would have been nice. A place for wife to put purse if there is a passenger. Honda CRV with leather figured out how to do it.
