2004 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5M)
It handles great in dry conditions, but not in snow, which is miserable. Fuel economy is disappointing for a V6 with VVT. The transmission makes a whinning noise, and the car is known to have issues with trannies. Comfortable, stylish, and fun, but not quality, reliable, or practical. Overall a decent value IF you get it at a cheap price, but I'll never buy another caddy again- HIGH maintenance costs, and not great quality. Get an Acura- 10x the quality for about the same price. Do not even consider if you drive in winter conditions.
Heated memory seats, decent stereo (I dont have the Bose package), quick and fun to drive (in dry weather).
Quality- I suppose I've been spoiled by owning a number of Japanese cars that last 200k miles before you even question whether or not you'll have an issue. Not the case at all here, and maintenance fees are high.
