Wife crashed the toyota 4runner and my Honda S2000 was stolen off the drivway. So I decided to go with some class and give GM back a chance... WRONG CHOICE!!! The CTS 3.6L with Navi and 17" wheels was a good try for GM but this car still does not compare. Quality is poor as paint interior on knobs are chipping everywhere and my side skirt is loose, memory settings get messed up on the sideview mirrors. There are recalls on the CTS with the steering linkages. My alignment needs to be redone every year so far and now it is acting up with suspension noises. Brand new these cars are great, right up until you add some mileage on them. Overall,still fun to drive while looking good doing it
The performance is good just like any other nice sedan, (A6 or TL). The comfort is bar none....Hey, Its a caddy...feels like driving my couch on the road. Styling is better than most sedans and equal to high end sedans. Also, gas mileage is good on the highway.
Build a quality car thats reliable. Im going back to buying an import. Xenon lights do not brighten up the road like an Acura or BMW. Navi should be touchscreen and provide the fastest/shortest directions. All in all, build it like a Honda or Toyota!!!
