I wanted to buy American but haved owned Mercedes, BMW, and Audi in the past. I shopped all those but purchased 3.6 CTS with the sport and lux package. What a great car! The center stack is a little odd, but truly functional. The stereo needs autospeed adjustment. Those are the two little problems that I have with this car, other than that it is great. It's quiet, firm, and has a good ride at speed and around town. Its edgy looks and Cadillac emblem now command interest among all ages. I wish it had external speakers so it could broadcast Led Zep while driving down road. Good job Cadillac and GM! Don't be surprised, this car uses synthetic oil.
This is a great car. It is hard to pick a favorite feature. The interior instrument illumination is good, the headlights are good, the brakes and power delivery are good, and the trunk is nicely finished. The seats are comfortable and supportive.
Add speed sensitive audio volume, fold down rear seats, greater availability of models equipped with manual transmissions, a little more tint on the windows especially at the top of the windshield, pull outs in the sun visors, and double visors (like Suburban).
