Ron's Stealth Gray/Cashmere STS
By Ron on
2006 Cadillac STS V6 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 5A)
This is a good car with great incentives to buy or lease. The ride is firm and quiet. If you want the cushy ride of yesteryear move on. It's quiet and feels good at highway speeds. The V6 is quite impressive, smooth and fast off the line or for passing. It is quieter than the noisy Northstar V8. Its gas mileage is fair, but it's regular gas so deal with it! I have the cashmere interior with lighter wood trim and steering wheel...awesome look. The electronics are a challenge, but good. The voice recognition needs improvement. I'm not disappointed at all.
The Bose surround sound, nice to look at and feel interior, cool memory setting system, navigation with touch screen, the heated seats and steering wheel. quiet solid ride, and feel especially at highway cruising, and rear park assist.
I don't care for the sound of the V6 engine, it sounds like my mother-in-law's 6 in her Buick Regal! The electronics are plenty and too challenging. Work on the voice recognition system...it could be fun and useful if more it was consistent.
