2008 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sedan w/Direct Injection (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
We bought this loaded 2008 CTS to replace our base model 2004 CTS. What a huge step up! Ours is exactly like the Crystal Red CTS4 seen in all of the ads. This car draws a great deal of attention when we are out in it. An 800 mile road trip in the first week of ownership proved to be a most pleasurable drive. The car handles like a sports cars and the 304 HP V6 sure feels like a V8. The ride is Cadillac quality but with a nice sporty road feedback. All of the chatter about the sunroof letting in too much light proved to be a non- issue. Even with the light Cashmere interior the sun shade blocked out the sun's rays just fine. This is a truely great car to own!
The navigation and 10 speaker Bose sound system are great. We love the heated and cooled seats along with the remote starting. Also the HID lights are superb! Our biggest issue with the 04 CTS was poor handling in snow but now with AWD the CTS is the perfect luxury/sports car to own!
Yes Bluetooth would have been nice but we can live without it. There is a slight color mismatch between the bumber covers and the body panels in the Crystal Red but it still is a great color. I miss having a auto- dimming left side mirror like in my 2003 Anniversary Corvette.
