Cadillac no longer means quality.
By Hate to love my CTS on
2005 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 6M)
Bought it used in Dec 2008 with 26000 for a DEAL. 6 speed manual, limited slip diff and luxury package for under 13000! 22 in the city, over 30mpg highway even in the smokey mountains in much lower gears than necessary! The perfect car...1 week before warranty went out took it to dealership in jacksonvilel NC, they said car was in tip top shape, 2 weeks later the water pump seals blew out, water pump seized up & the synchros for 1st and reverse stopped working. GM said sorry, this happens, a cadillac that was 4 years old and had 32000 miles on it that needed over 3000 dollars worth of repairs. but the dealership offered me an extra 50 bucks on trade for my trouble.
6 speed manual in a caddie, just as fast as 1999-2004 mustang gt's gets over 30mpg easy on the highway. Awesome drift mobile
Get rid of the transmission, shifter is rubbery at times, hydraulic clutch needs to be done away with,
