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


I have had my CTS for two years, and had read several reviews before my purchase. I saw that there were several complaints about the batteries dying on this vehicle. I also had this problem, not because of a faulty wiring system like many of the reviews said, but because of the bose sound system. When i bought the car i knew bose made a cheap product and expected this to happen, due to the lack of a remote wire on their amp. I replaced the amp and speakers (the bose speakers are made of cardboard) with a better product and it fixed the issue. This car has great handling and plenty of power.

Favorite Features

Looks, quality of the ride, silent on the road, enough power to have a fun drive, the interior is very comfortable for long drives, this car has 65,000 miles on it and still has tight steering and a comfortabble ride, no rattles, and still has that nice new car smell even though its 5 years old

Suggested Improvements

The cheap Bose product, this has given people the impression that GM has a terrible electrical engineering issue. The bose amp just stays on when the car is off killing the battery. I would also like to see a CTS offered in an AWD vehicle. IF YOU BUY THIS CAR GET RID OF THE BOSE SOUND SYSTEM!!
