My 2005 Cadillac STS is a nice car but the front end rattles excessively at speeds of 35 MPH or under. To date, Cadillac has been unable to fix the problem. So far, they have replaced a control arm but that still has not fixed the problem. If I had it to do over again I would have purchased the Infinit M35 or BMW 530i. This will be the last time I buy an American luxury car!
Suspension leaves something to be desired. Fix the rattles and noises.
Fantastic car with tons of cool gizmos and gadgets that are so fun to play with. Great power with the V8, and handling with the magnetic suspension is the best that I have driven. I really like the remote start, cools it down inside. If only it would come pick me up. The black exterior and the chrome lines make it my little Batmoblie.
Northstar engine, super smooth 5-speed transmission. Upscale materials, the custom grill I put in that I bought from the Caddy dealer. All the bluetooth gadgets.
The glove box is way too small. Otherwise, nothing.
We have had our 2005 Cadillac STS for less than two months but so far really love it except for the small glove box. This is our fourth one and we really love it. We had some problems with the carpet but my dealer and Cadillac renewed it. We hope to buy another one in a couple of years.
The navigation system and the looks of the car.
The glove box and front seat storage need to be larger as they do not hold anything.
The Cadillac STS is a great road car. Fuel mileage (overall) 21 mpg but engine not yet broken in with 1,000 miles. Leather seats could be softer but quality is good. Only dissatisfaction is with glove box which is rediculously designed and much too small. Good storage between seats helps. Previous 3 cars were Acura TLs which were great cars, but just as satisfied with STS.
Re-design the glove box and they have a perfect automobile.
I own both a 2004 BMW M3 and a 2000 BMW M5. Due to poor reliability (the M5 spent more time in the shop than on the road) I decided to try an American car and bought a Cadillac STS. Although the handling is not as tight as the BMW. The ride and technology in the STS is superior. The STS holds it's own in performance.
Technology - WOW! Styling - Not your daddy's caddy. Performance.
