My previous model ESV 2004, had features that I felt made it a luxury vehicle. The 2008 seats are hard, do not hold you in position when cornering. The sun visor is poor. Previous model had more flexibility. Headrest ability to bend forward is now seriously lacking. I happened apparently to be one of the few people that used the disc changer system under random ALL. Since the addition of the backup camera this feature has been removed. This last item damed near stopped the purchase. I now wish that I had purchased a Mercedes GL 550. Which at this point in time will be my next purchase; and most likely sooner than later. This is my 10th new Cadillac purchase in a row.
No Favorites with this model. The people that are allowed to design these vehicles do not own them, it is very obvious. The 2004 had superior ride and better amenities.
Get rid of those lousy seats. My wifes 2006 STS AWD had similar seats and we swapped for a DTS. This is SUPPOSED to be a luxury vehicle.
