My mother-in-law purchased this car used (1-2 years old 8k miles). She is a senior citizen and wanted a reliable car for her remaining years. She had several Cadillacs in the past and always liked them. From the beginning it seems like this car was always in the shop with electrical and emissions issues costing my mother-in-law a lot of money (fixed income). She has maintained this car perfectly and always brings it to the Cadillac dealership for all work including oil changes. She has just turned over 80,000 miles and after hearing a "knock" brought the car in yet again and was told (by 2 mechanics) the low end of the motor is ready to blow! The dealership wants $6,600 to replace the motor. Wow.... really? It doesn't even have 100k on it.... What a hunk of junk! I personally will never purchase a Cadillac after her experience. If 0 stars was an option, that's what I'd give!
I previously owned a 2005 CTS and loved it. Lease was up so I purchased a used 2.8 with low mileage. Exterior and interior appearance is great as well as the comfort ride, however I just hate the 2.8L engine. I will be planning to get another CTS 3.6 as soon as I can.
I've owned the 05' and newer Accords and Camrys and the CTS is a far better vehicle for the money. It is a beautiful car and not just another "SEDAN". It's sporty and I love it. Not a single problem. Father in-law owns a 2006 and has never had any trouble. So, I decided it was my turn to have one.
Seats fit me like a glove but softer. XM radio with great features, Onstar has saved me twice after locking my keys in the car. Thanks Guys!!!
I haven't had a very good experience with my CTS, I have had major repairs and the car is only 1 yr and 5 months. I love the look of the car and the features, But would like to try another CTS because I think I ended up with a defective model.
My favorite features is the onstar service and also XM radio i love it I can't live without it.
The Cadillac CTS should include heated seats,automatic key entry and it would be nice if the engine was quiet.
