I have (and do) owned BMW's for years. I am a member of BMWCCA and really appreciate these cars but I was ready for something different. I love this CTS as does my wife who is not a "car person." I have not had any type of problem in these first 9 months. My car is black with all options made plus numerous dealer extras, rear spoiler, back-up light louvers, grill, custom ss exhaust system, cold air intake, complete interior wood and more. Often people stop me to say it is beautiful and ask more about it. I am a car nut and not easy to please but this one has done it. Style is of course a matter of taste but I think this has it all. I have heard some negatives on the interior but do not agree.
The engine with varible valve timing producing excellent power at any RPM range or speed. The navigation system, satelite radio, and OnStar are great. It drives very solid with excellent brakes and handling.
