2006 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This is my first ever owned luxury car and I am in some ways, very disappointed. It isn't as luxurious as expected for the base model CTS. It has a very underpowered 2.8L v6 engine in it, and the gas mileage is bad (i average with conservative driving about 16.5 MPG city.)It hasn't given me any problems though, it is comfortable to drive in, I like the exterior design and I get alot of respect just because I drive a cadillac.


Best Features

The ability to be able to customize your own settings in the car. Climate control and The comfortable seats.


Worst Features

Gas mileage (very bad for a weak v6 engine) The power of the 2.8L v6 engine and the lack of luxurious appeal mto the base model cts.

2006 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

recently i bought a 2006 CTS 2.8L i'm a mechanic for GM and i love this car!!. and 2.8L does compete with the 3.6L, there is hardly any chance of feeling the 60hp difference other than racing purposes. which buy the CTS-v not the 3.6L or 2.8L. they are poor in the snow if not treated properly (drive for the conditions) I have a corvette as well and people who compare 3.6L and 2.8L engine clearly don't know what a real sports car feels like. or are that ignorant, to do these type of comparisons. thank you to all the people who took the car for what it is made for and not blow it out of proportion, remember it is a four door sedan with a V6 either of them 3.6L or 2.8L. all an all beautiful car


Best Features

ride smootheness and exceptional handling. also both 3.6L and 2.8L exceptional engines very similar and the 2.8L is not dis-continued it is still offered in europe!. It's a caddy not a honda or a acura .


Worst Features

the only improvement for this car in my opinion would be to put a little more thought to the interior and not so plastic

2006 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I bought my first new Cadillac in 2006 and was pretty excited. But, now after 60,000 miles I've had coils replaced, wheel bearings, tie rods, rear seals, and now told oil usage of a quart per 2000 miles is acceptable. If luxury cars by GM are produced to this quality level, I can see why they need bailing out!


Best Features

Heated seats to stay warm while waiting for tow truck


Worst Features

Quality and durability

Review

The Cadillac CTS is very comfortable, has power when you need it and has an overall sexy appearance. I have been quickly sold on Cadillac since purchasing this vehicle. I bought my Cadillac CTS with 32,000 miles on it. It was a leased vehicle and I purchased it as a certified pre- owned. The heated leather seats, wood trimmed steering/console and plush pile carpeting add a luxurious coponent to the superb handling. My only complaint is the plastic grill on the front but I believe they have addressed this in the 2008 and 2009 models. As they say on the commercial...."when you turn your car on does it return the favor?"...the answer is a resounding YES! I LOVE THIS CAR!


Best Features

Overall appearance, interior wood trim, heated leather seats, split rear seat, two tone leather.


Worst Features

Replace the plastic grill on the front with chrome. The Cadillac name warrants something other than plastic.
