2005 Cadillac STS Sedan Rwd 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

This vehicle is in one word awesome. You have to drive one to believe the over all performance, comfort and whatever you would ever dream of having in a car. I have owned a few Cadillac's, they were all wonderful cars but nothing like this one. Competitors can't touch this one. I love my STS.


Best Features

Too many to name.


Worst Features

None at this time.

Review

This is the most fun car I have ever owned. The quality is exceptional and it has so many gizmos on it, it is hard to use them all.

Review

Trying to program the memory features was a real chore. It took 2 dealer techs 2 hours to get the job done. The old Seville came with VHS instructional tape and a handy card. This new STS is not user friendly in that respect. The glove compartment is next to useless, being so shallow and the return of standard cigarette lighters and ash trays is not a welcome addition. The buyer gets more "toys" than he can keep track of, so eventually forgets all but the most used features. The tires and brakes could be a little more high-performance but are only adequate as they come from the factory. The coffee cup holders have only one purpose: to hold coffee cups.


Best Features

Peppy performance and pretty good stopping ability. Exterior design is not a copy of every other car on the road, but unique and imaginative. RWD is a welcome feature. Stock interior, which is never featured in the ads, is pretty pedestrian without the wood trimmed steering wheel, but acceptable


Worst Features

Get rid of the ashtrays. Bring back the handy holder between the sunvisor and roof to clip stuff with since there's precious few places to put extra CDs, notebooks and miscellaneous need-to-have stuff. On the outside, invent paint that won't swirl and is easy to clean bird droppings.

2005 Cadillac STS Sedan Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Fun Car! The seats a little hard. Two faults: trunk very limited and glove box stinks. Missing some things that we were used to: auto trunk close; hidden accesory plug for radar detect or phone that closes down with ignition. Overload on computorized settings. (my wife is still scared to touch )


Best Features

No question: performance and style.


Worst Features

Do something about the glove box.

Review

Originally went to purchase a CTS Luxury Sport but the salesman also showed us a V6 STS Luxury pkg. For a few dollars more my wife and I got exactly what we were both looking for. I have been looking at both Japanese and European cars for the past 3 months and the STS V6 beats them all! The V6 is the perfect engine at 255 HP, coupled with a 5 speed auto trans that has sport mode as well as a manual shift option, this car not only looks great it's a blast to drive. Center stack with optional Premium upgrade gets wood trim, which makes this interior gorgeous! If thats not enough, it runs on regular gas, something all the imports can't do. Also remember it is rear wheel drive, so no torque steer.


Best Features

Engine/Trans. Firm yet comfortable ride. Great interior/exterior look. Start button and memory settings. Stock 17 inch polished wheels. Headlights that actually allow you to see the road ahead.


Worst Features

Easier way to set memory function.
