Don't Bother w/ STS-V
By ThurstyDog on
2006 Cadillac STS-V 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl S/C 6A)
The engine is fantastic. The Brembo brakes are the best I have ever owned. I have had M3s in the past and was looking for a sedan and got a good deal (or so I thought). The car has been the shop for 8 weeks in the first 16 months. Not just for small stuff either, but for items like the transmission shifting to 3rd gear at hwy speeds (that will get your attention and of those behind you). Power steering pump exploding and too many others to count. I have contacted Cadlliac numerous times and they refuse to help. For a $70+k car you would think that they would give some service consideration, but so far they have disappointed all along. So this will be my 1st and last Caddy.
Engine and brakes.
Transmission hunts and pecks for gear and the lag in manual shifting mode are too long. Seats are goofy and sometimes slip some on the rails in hard cornering which is frightening. Reliability is shoddy.
