2005 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 6M)

Review

Our CTS has been mostly reliable save for the electronic dash that seems to go black every so often. Shutting off the car for a few minutes brings it back. Check engine light came on once. Dealer could not find the fault. Reset and been ok since. A car of this price should have more than an ugly black plastic dash. (something GM changed in 2008) Minus? Depreciation. The worst I ever experienced. This 3 year old car is not even worth 40% of what it cost new. Seat belts are awful. No passenger grab handle. Quite an omission in a $45,000 car. Overall the CTS is a very fine $25-30k automobile. But $45K? Forget it.

Favorite Features

XM Radio, handling and performance, good looks. Competitive warranty.

Suggested Improvements

Better looking dashboard, adjustable seat belts, grab handle for passenger. Don't get a sunroof if you are over 6'. Changing the rear tail light bulbs is a major hassle.
