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


Review

The only problem with this car was the mirror on drivers side had locating problems.This was fixed.otherwise great experience.Put 20s on and looks great.Rough riding due to the low profiles and all the mechanisms in the seats, but wonderful vehicle experience.


Favorite Features

air/heat seats.ahhhhh sound system is beautiful.has alot of torque when I need it.Feels very luxurious.


Suggested Improvements

I would like to be able to put car seat cover in the back seat. It could use a little more padding in the front seats. we need a (protection sheild) around nice cars to keep shopping carts and kids away.Its like a maget to them.

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


Review

I bought my used with 45k on it, I love the way the car drives and handles, I put a set of 22 inch wheels on it,that makes it very unique, I love the way my car looks. I wish it had a bigger trunk and more space in the glove box. I did had some problems with the car making some noise coming from the ac vents, it sounded like someone was passing gas (upps) other than that, I love my car, I wish I had bought the V8 AWD


Favorite Features

The car design, interior and the performance


Suggested Improvements

Fix that trunk make it bigger. I hate the resale value, I got a good deal on my but i'm still upside down on it, I can't believe it has lost more than 60 percent of the value in 3 years

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


Review

owning and especially driving this beauty are an absolute pleasure, yea there is the odd glitch here and there such as the interior shud be a bit more prestigous. the 320 hp is awesome they shud have made it a 360hp or so but the 320hp is superfine. sound system is beyond prestige. it handles like a sports car born on the track. what a sweet ride u built it right this time caddy, the headlight and light system mated to the front fascia is a designers showpiece.


Favorite Features

the power, handling and the sound system,also the power moonroof,fairly nice leather, that sports car feel, never tire of driving this first class car, nice fairly quiet ride


Suggested Improvements

a little bit plasticy interior,nice wood trim tho, rain sense wipers a waste of an option who needs it, steering could be a bit tighter shud have come with a six speed in 05, bigger fuel tank body seams shud be tighter/closer

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


Review

I've loved this car since we got it new back in 04. And now I'm purchasing it from my parents, thanks to luxury cars' famous depreciation. This AWD car replaced our beloved 2003 Audi A6 and surpassed it in almost every way (gas mileage being one of the only exceptions [minor]). The car is built as well if not better, has AWD, is incredibly fast for a heavy 4-door, looks fantastic in every angle-inside and out, fun to drive (handles well), and the stereo wipes out every other car stereo I've ever heard-standard or aftermarket. 97k miles on it and has been absolutely reliable. My parents have now bought a new CTS-V and will probably stick with Cadillacs forever. I will likely do the same.


Favorite Features

Northstar V8, AWD, Bose 5.1 sound, exterior appearance, interior lay-out and quality (still my favorite design ever), magnetic ride control (handles well & can be smooth if you want it to be), great interior and has held up well, keyless system, lights, auxiliary input on a 2005 car, fun! etc


Suggested Improvements

Leg room maybe? Oh yeah! glove box is kind of hard to access with a passenger.

Bigger truck and glove box.
