At 46K miles on my 2005 3.6L CTS the water pump slowly leaked water and i caught it before it could overheat the motor. I also changed the cap for the radiator overflow water bottle. Stayin on top of it with oil changes and intricate transmission oil change.
Exterior design and billet grill. the older ladies and gents give you looks!
after having the car for 2 years, it started burning oil. I have taken it to 3 different dealers and because the warranty was almost up. Nobody cared to help get the warrenty company to pay for any repairs as they all told me there was nothing wrong even though I was going thru almost 5 quarts of oil every 3000 miles. other than that I love the car although the airbag sensor and the passenger seat went out right after the warranty was up.
This is my first Cadillac since 1989 and I love this car. Paid dealer too much for it as a certified used car, need to repaint front bumper, but I love the way it runs and feels. Very, very sporty feel for a sedan.
Engine & transmission very responsive for a V-6. Seats are comfortable. Ride is firm but comfortable. Like the tight steering.
Had problems with stability control, fixed under warranty. Lots of people complain of these problems.
I really enjoyed my CTS for approximately one year. After that I have had recurrent problems with the check engine light, especially recently, coming on nearly every two months. I have had the timing chain replaced three times in less than a year. Each time, I have had to wait at least a month for the part which causes high rental car fees. I have been extremely disappointed. This is the first and last Cadillac I will ever buy.
My 2 neighbors have the CTS. They are both very pleased with the performance. I purchased 1 month ago and driven the car another 2,000 miles! My car had 22,674 miles on it. The drive is smooth and quiet. I traded a Toyota Solara. I can't believe the ride difference. I also have a 2005 Acura TL. The Cadillac's ride, feel and quality so far are better than the Acura! The gas mileage is the same as the Acura at 23 to 25 mpg combined highway and city. The steering wheel controls are excellent. The car is tight and looks brand new! I have the Navigation with Bose system and XM. Wow it has fantastic sound. The two tone seats and wood trim, make the car stand out!
Peppy (3.6L) from the gate! XM and navigation! Luxury package with memory seats!
Trunk heavy, hard to lift up for my wife. Locking gas cap, handles on side of the roof where driver and passenger side windows meet. Acura has it as well as many foreign cars! Helps to get in or out and take corners and turns. Otherwise car is perfect!
