2008 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sedan w/Direct Injection (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
After 10 months of ownership, I can say this is one of the few cars for which I have felt no regret after purchasing. Its stunning to look at, inside and out and with the FE3 package and 6speed manual, it is a true driver's car. Most importantly, it is genuinely a quality piece. The body structure is incredibly solid; even with the stiff FE3 suspension setup it feels imperturbable. The interior isnt just excellent for a car in the mid-40s, it is actually nicer than a number of more expensive cars, with great fit & finish and superb materials. The Nav/Infotainment System is the best I have ever seen or heard. The exterior features Lexus like panel gaps.
Simply fantastic ride/handling balance and great steering feel with no dead spot and quick turn-in. If you like your ride BMW sport package firm, but never as harsh, get the FE3 package. Love the styling (in and out) and the Nav/Infotainment system is second to none.
The only problem I have had is that during sub-freezing temps, the interior trim surrounding the sunroof "itches" until the interior warms up. GM should rethink the sunroof trim. The only other suggestions I have are that clutch feel could be improved a bit along with more front-seat thigh support.
