2008 Cadillac CTS: A Long Way

November 17, 2008

Let's consider the smallest Caddy's path to greatness...OK, that's enough. Cadillac, you've come a long way baby - the CTS is great looking, fun to drive and loaded with tech features that are both useful and cool. By the way, when I drove a V6 powered Cimarron, I don't recall totally hating it - was I bonked in the head since rendering my memory unreliable? Things...getting...dark - voices... distant....


Thankfully, I'm clear as a bell when it comes to the CTS.

To avoid another day of So Cal smoke along with coughing and sore throat, my family bolted for the CTS and drove about an hour and a half down the coast to get some fresh air. The CTS is an excellent highway car, the rear seat is big enough for kiddie seats and/or adults, the stereo is good and XM's Nav Traffic helped us avoid closed freeways. I'm looking for something to dislike but so far I can't find a deal breaker.
