i can see why the CTS was "motor trends" car of the year for 2008. i've owned mine for about 3 months and have 2500 miles on the odo. so far the car has exceeded my expectations. the 6 speed automatic is silky smooth with the 3.0 liter producing plenty of power - acceleration is quick and smooth. the ride is a bit stiffer than my 2004 Chrysler Concorde limited but yet smooth and controlled. i like the ride and appreciate the quietness. the exterior and interior styling and workmanship are superior - just what a Cadillac should be. the variable assist power steering is spot on. and it's nice to get back to a rear wheel drive after several decades of front wheel drive. so far so good!
steering, rear wheel drive, engine power, xm radio, option to set transmission to normal or sport mode. informative and well executed instrumentation, overall interior comfort, design and styling. exterior styling and color (radiant silver). smooth and quiet ride, wheels. and just plain fun to drive
softer seats ,easier access to oil dip stick. a remote opener with more range - i can unlock my Concorde from a football field away, need to be much closer to open my CTS. cabin air filter should be std on all trims, as well as fog lights, HID lamps and spare tire - after all it's a Cadillac!
