2008 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sedan w/Direct Injection (3.6L 6cyl 6A)

Review

Came off a lease of an Audi A4. The CTS was a new design for 08, which was appealing. Seriously considered the BMW 335xi also. Having more rear leg room and supporting an American company were the deciding factors. However, build quality of my A4 was much better than the CTS. Have already had the CTS in for steering (wheel shakes) and navigation problems. Spending 4 hours at the dealership with a two week-old $48,000 vehicle is quite discouraging. Steering feels "disconnected" from car at times, especially during aggressive driving. Fuel-injectors make a noticeable, annoying hum. Thanks go to a great stereo to mask this. Upon close inspection, my black paint has factory flaws.

Best Features

The CTS is a sharp looking car. Considering the 304 horsepower, it gets good gas mileage. Plus, no need for premium. It's great to get a lot more horsepower than my A4, and still get equivalent mileage.

Worst Features

Steering. Noise from fuel-injectors. More controls need to be illuminated. Have to feel around for many controls (homelink, vents, etc). Considering the size of the car, interior space seems small and could be better utilized (center stack takes up a lot). Don't use velcro! Did I mention steering?
