This is my first venture into the
luxury market and the CTS is a real
nice blend of luxury and performance.
The size is just right and the
features are great for a personal
car. A 6 CD dash-mounted player,
satellite radio and OnStar handle all
the entertainment and the 3.6L engine
is strong enough for quick driving (I
couldn't justify getting the more expensive
V-series and it's potential for speeding tickets).
My only complaint is an amplifier that
has not performed a few times,
rendering the radio silent. It was diagnosed
and will soon be fixed when I get the
time. I got the redline color and the
17 inch chrome wheels. It is a
beautiful car, although I may lose it
to my wife.
Satellite radio, strong engine, great
ride. Styling has yet to get dated,
in fact the new Chrysler 300 and Honda
Accord look similar.
A little more flash on the dash. The
dark color of the dashboard is too
stark of a contrast with the light tan
interior. A 5-speed trans with the 3.6L engine.
