2008 Cadillac CTS Long Term Road Test

2008 Cadillac CTS: Squeak Squeak Squeak Senora

March 05, 2009


The Cadillac CTS has a visually arresting interior with excellent materials. It had a stitched dashtop long before the new $82,000 BMW 7 Series did. I'm not sure if I'm completely sold on the electronics lay-out, but I could certainly live with it. In other words, the CTS should be a perfect place to spend hours on the road.

Except that it squeaks more than a flock of mice that wandered into a River Dance rehearsal. It drives me nuts. Watch the video.

The second squeak is my left leg moving left and right. The first CTS short-term car' we had would squeak when going aggressively around corners. Now after 26,000 miles, our CTS does it all the freakin' time.
