Traded my 530I

2008 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 6M)
Baby boomer who's never owned a new American built car (or any American car other than the old Pontiac I had in high school). Owned 2 BMW 530i's and a C280 Mercedes before that. Happy to see that there's an American car that finally measures up. Is it perfect - no? Probably the only car in its class not to have bluetooth, but OnStar is GM's baby so I can live with my bluetooth earpiece and use the OnStar when needed. What I am impressed with is the styling, performace, and functionality. Got the 3.6DI with 304 horses and its definitely quicker than the 530i. The audio with XM and 40GB hard drive and centerpoint surround sound is sweet. Escalade-like styling makes it.
Escalade-like styling. 304 horsepower performance. NAV with XM and 40GB hard drive. Overall, an American car that actually competes with Beemers and Benzes and doesn't look or drive like my dad's Caddy.
Needs bluetooth and a moonroof shade that isn't see- through. Also, limitations on NAV need to be improved.
