I've had my 2007 STS for nearly 3 years without a single problem. Statistical data suggests the person using the term "lemon" for his STS did indeed get a very rare bad apple of the bunch. Remeber Cadillac is #1 on several customer satisfaction surveys (e.g. JD power) -- yes, even beating #2 Lexus. Ditto for quality and repair frequency. Audi, BMW & MB have far more incidents per 1,000 cars ... Read More
Buick Lucerne 8 cylinder...Great automobile: comfort, power. and LOOKS.
I traded in a 1998 Deville for a 2007 STS V8 and this first winter snow storm was a rude awakening. The car would not hardly go at all - the Deville was pretty good in the snow. The 17" Michilin tires on the STS look great for tire life, but are lacking of any lugs at all for winter. So I put on four 225/60-15" Michilin symetry tires from my ... Read More
I was thinking of my friend's 1980 Chevrolet Citation which had that stuff all over the interior - like it was fooling anybody into thinking it was real stitching. I don't think GM interiors started getting crappy until maybe the late 1960s with the increased use of plastics. Mid-sixties Pontiacs have beautiful interiors and a clearly a step up from Chevrolets. What happened? However, I think they've finally realized the error ... Read More
I haven't forgot! I still remember those wonderful Cadillacs of my youth from the 1960s through the 1980s. Funny, I just realized I owned a Cadillac from almost each decade up to the present. My high school/college girlfriend had a 1969 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham, I've had a 1975 Cadillac Sedan DeVille, 1989 Cadillac Brougham, 1994 Cadillac DeVille, a 2002 Cadillac Seville STS, and currently a 2007 Cadillac DTS Performance. I've actually ... Read More
Yes, the STS is a lemon, and GM is just not set up to sell luxury cars. Their dealerships remind me of fast food restaurants in terms of decor. Cadillacs are expensive, way too expensive considering the competition. I can tell you that I just traded my 13 month old 2007 STS V-8 with RWD for a 2008 BMW 335i sedan, and the difference in drivability, quality, features, etc is staggering. ... Read More
Wow, a lot of lucky people! I had a 1968 Buick Special Deluxe, 1975 Cadillac Sedan DeVille, 1979 Buick Park Avenue, 1979 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Regency, 1987 Chevrolet Caprice Classic, 1988 Buick Park Avenue, 1989 Cadillac Brougham, 1994 Cadillac DeVille, 2002 Cadillac Seville STS, and a 2007 Cadillac DTS Performance. We still have a fleet of four GM cars: 1988 Buick Park Avenue, 1989 Cadillac Brougham, 2005 Buick LaCrosse, and 2007 Cadillac ... Read More
In the CTS forum there are people who are having problems with V6 oil consumption. My 2002 Seville used about 4 quarts every 10000 miles, which was the oil monitor's oil change interval for me. I used Mobil 1 synthetic in it. My dealer recommended the first change at the oil monitor's 30% oil life left stage, which was at 11,500 miles. This engine requires synthetic oil for the oil monitor ... Read More
Wow! I guess I better start checking the oil between changes on my V6 STS. I hadn't heard of a V6 consumption problem on any V6's, only the Northstar V8. I have a friend that has an 02 Eldo that uses at least a quart every 1K. Don't really know if the new motors are any better. I have to ask. You performed your "first" oil change at 11K? That's not ... Read More
My 2007 SRX with the V8 does not use oil (so far) between changes. My first oil change was at 11500 miles and I had not added any oil. Some of the CTS owners are reporting V6 oil consumption rates of 1 qt in 1000 miles or so.
I found my 07 at Al Piemonte Cadillac in St. Charles. I had found a couple close to the $30K mark but they were missing the 3 big items; NAV, AWD and Moonroof. A basic RWD car didn't do the job for me regardless of price. Piemonte actually had those base cars advertised for higher than the loaded one I purchased. Don't ask me why. They were all around 6K on ... Read More
My God, what a spectacular deal. I'm looking for about 9 to 12 months out. I've kept my Maxima (bought new) for 16 years. I want to replace it with something a little plusher, hopefully under $30k. I'd still like just the faintest hint of over-the-road responsiveness. Cooled seats would be swell. Real wood, even sweller. I could love the CTS except for one fatal flaw: The console digs into my ... Read More
A lot of car for the money.....smokin' deal.
Cadillac has their Field Reps drive them, then resell them as used. Last month I bought an 07 STS, V6 AWD with Nav and a Moonroof. It was titled to General Motors, the only purpose to me was that they didn't allow the perception that you could buy a NEW STS for such a discouint. To me it was like buying a Demo. My car was in service 5 months, has ... Read More
I did see a 300C also, and I don't think the interior trim was all that much different. I own a 2007 SRX and find that it is a nice vehicle for road trips. Compared to my 2002 Seville LS (FWD), the SRX handles much better. The ride is a bit firmer as should be expected with lower profile tires rated for 150 MPH. Cadillac's are much more expensive than the ... Read More
Does anyone know what GM does to the unsold 2007 Cadillac STS?
Funny thing is, I still own one of those 1980s Cadillac "rolling bathtubs." I wouldn't call it a timeless classic, but it has a lot of sentimental value for me as it was my first new Cadillac. I had a 1975 Cadillac Sedan DeVille before that one. I've also owned a 1994 Cadillac DeVille and a 2002 Cadillac Seville STS. I currently own a 2007 Cadillac DTS Performance I bought back ...

Her is some interesteing data from July 2007. According to the industry examiners at CNW Research, Cadillac’s fortunes appear to be slipping away at the margins. In the firm’s July installment of their Retail Automotive Summary, their Aspirational Index (which judges a brand’s attractiveness to consumers) reveals that Cadillac’s rising star is beginning to falter. In the mid-Nineties, the marque rated only a 4 on a 10 point scale. With the ... Read More
Really? Longer lasting? I have a 1988 Buick Park Avenue with the 3.8 litre V-6 and a 1989 Cadillac Brougham with a 5.0 litre V-8. Both are pushrod engines. They're still here as are millions of older cars with pushrod engines. Most of the Japanese cars of the same vintage around here have collapsed into piles of iron oxide dust about five to ten years ago. My 2002 Cadillac Seville STS ... Read More
Isn't the rear end recall only for the "old" CTS (2007? I didn't think it applied to the new one.
but already GM has a recall on the new CTS with the rear end leaking. including the 2005-2007 Cadillac CTS and STS sedans, I believe the recall is on the old CTS, not the new. FYI, GM had lower recalls than Toyota and all the other major OEM's last year even though they had the highest volume of sales.
But lately we have noticed that some of the GM cars are looking pretty impressive, namely the Cadillac CTS, Chevy Malibu, GMC Acadia, Saturn Vue, Saturn Outlook, Saturn Aura, Buick Enclave. Also some of the Fords look good, like the Ford Edge, Ford Fusion, Lincoln MKZ, Mercury Milan. I agree completely Americans are starting to build better vehicles, The only 2 American cars that I would ever purchase would be the ... Read More
You need to read the original post again, the average buyer age data is from 2005 (the most recent that I can found) but the IS and CTS owner age breakdowns are for 2008 model. Just in Case you missed it I'll post again. JD Power Model Age Profile (all 2008 models except the Lexus LS which is 2007): Cadillac CTS: Ages 16-35 - 12% Ages 36-55 - 34% Ages 56+ ... Read More
Even BMW, with their excellent 535i, has not announced plans to abandon the 550i. I also agree with pretty much everything you say but do no wait for BMW to announce dropping the V8 in the near term. They will continue to pay gaz guzzler taxes until the tax is so high actual buyers refuse to pay it. BMW will just pay the penalties as long as consumers support them. When ... Read More
I hope you aren't talking about the new ULTRA Unfortunately yes. When I heard this I screamed at the person who told me. Not that it was their decision. BUT in looking at it and all the other stuff that is going on I can see why. I just do not like it. First the possible usage of the engine was very small volume. Pretty much Cadillac only and in only ... Read More

"I agree GM could do better in their Cadillac interiors......the XLR in particular the interior is dissapointing. " The XLR needs to be updated as does the STS to some degree. I like the CTS, DTS, Escalade and SRX interiors. They are very competitive with anything from MB or Lexus. The 2007 refresh of the SRX interior took it from worst in class to one of the best.
Since its been on sale the 2008 CTS has outsold the C class, TL, IS, A4 and G35. I would say the car s doing just fine and will continue to do so....Read some of the consumer reviews right here on this site, many owners have traded in European cars. Would you be so kind to post a link to back this up? I did a little research and this is ... Read More
"General Motors has announced the recall of 276,000 vehicles. The recall is due to a faulty pinion seal, which can cause fluid leaks. The recall affects the 2005-07 Cadillac CTS, CTS-V, SRX, STS and STS-V; 2006-07 Pontiac Solstice; and 2007 Saturn Sky. " That's the last thing they need at this crucial point. Hopefully they can get this problem fixed and it'll be the only problem for the CTS. I personally ... Read More
"We have no proof that GM has been making poor quality vehicles across the board for 30 years." Across the board? There is no evidence. We do know that GM quality wasnt as good as Toyota quality in the past but that is not the same as saying every GM product ever made in the last 30 years was junk. My personal experience and the experiences of other car owners I ... Read More
I WILL any Cadillac over a Mercedes-Benz many reasons: 1. It's a Cadillac. I have always been excited or impressed by a Caddy. Mercedes has had many BAD years over the last 15. I don't think there's been a truly great Mercedes since the very excellent W126 S-Class. If any of my Cadillacs given me the grief that my brother-in-law's S430 has given him, I'd have defected to Lexus by now. ... Read More

My SRX's (a 2007) interior is OK, but for the money I think it could have been, and should have been, better. But it is a utility vehicle, so perhaps it is more or less what it ought to be. I would expect the STS interior to be much nicer. The CTS is probably OK. As far as the CTS's handling goes, Road and Track does not think it is nearly ... Read More
I would like to see that also. Here is a link that says otherwize but it may be just an assumption on the reporters part. This came from an interview by Automotive News with Jim Taylor, GM of Cadillac. http://caddyedge.com/news/2007/09/17/cadillac-confirms-unified-stsdts-and-strong- ly-hints-at-sub-cts-model/ First of all, in response to what they are terming ‘shrinkage’ in the segments occupied by the current STS and DTS, Taylor admitted that “we don’t need two entries there ...

I had my Seville STS at the Cadillac dealer for an oil change this morning. The CTS is RED HOT! They only had one left and it was a demo. They sold out of them over the weekend. The interior of the CTS alone is worth the price of admission. I don't think I've seen that nice an interior in a Cadillac since the early 1960s. It puts the other cars ... Read More
Cadillac will do best to market cars that are not direct competition with BMW or Mercedes. If Cadillac can build something different, but American, then it should sell. Cadillac will not be able to sell something very expensive. The XLR does not sell like the Mercedes SL's. = = = While I agree with statements 1 & 2, I disagree with #3. If Caddy does build something unique & American, I ... Read More
Cadillac should have reviewed the ad more critically. The DI 3.6 CTS is supposed to get better mileage than the base 3.6 did. The new rating for the 2007 CTS are 16/25 while the 2008 is 17/26. What is not clear is whether this is for the new engine or not. The STS has similar ratings and it has the DI standard. GM's website rates both engines at 26 highway.
Greetings leaseman2. You never mentioned the selling price of the STS that you are interested in leasing. This is an important number for you as a consumer to know for two reasons. First, the selling prices of leased vehicles can be negotiated, just as if you were paying cash for them. Without knowing the price of the car that you want to lease you don't know how good a price you ... Read More
It was on June 4th 2007 when it happened. I was in a 2006 Cadillac STS by myself doing approx. 70 mph with a temperature of 74 degrees outside and an inside temp set at 72 degrees.

There is an additional $1,500 cash incentive on top of the above customer cash for units that have been in dealer inventory since January 5th or earlier, which all '06 and some ... Read More

“First resale may be one of the best reasons to buy a Cadillac. You can get great deals on a year old low mileage model with Certified warranty. If you think any luxury car has great resale, try trading it in after a year.” Very true. In fact, I see that the ( now relative few, near where I live ) left over NEW 2006s carry an $8,000 rebate.

Hi patrey. GMAC's current base lease rate and residual value for a 39 month lease of a 2007 Cadillac STS V6 with 10,000 miles per year are 3.95% and 59%, respectively.

Well, as a BMW owner of the last 20 years I went out and drove a STS, 2007 and took delivery on March 3, 2007. See my review in the review group.

I don't find my refrigerator or stove uninteresting. I sleep in front of my dishwasher and refrigerator cause I like the noise they make.

I was going to rent a Cadillac STS last weekend for a drive to San Diego but there were none available. So I rented a Chevrolet Impala with 6,000 miles on it.

After driving that piece of junk they call the ... Read More
I'm looking at leasing a 2007 STS with 1SB package and Navi. I have got the price of the car to 44K. They are quoting me a $450 month payment at 10K/year and 39 month lease with 4500 down. Sounds like the MF is to high and the residual to low. Does anyone know the current MF and residual on a 2007 STS. Thyanks
Hey Wayne. A base 2007 Cadillac STS V6 has a spread of around $2,750 between its full MSRP and its dealer invoice price. You were given a $4,195 discount on your car. After the $1,500 lease cash that is currently available on it is taken into account, you were sold this car for right around dealer invoice which is a very good deal. Furthermore, when the the money factor that you ... Read More
What? Since when is a Cadillac a "blue collar worker's car"? It should be the boss's car. It is supposed to be the "Standard of the World" and not a Chevy or Pontiac! Your view has been GM's problem with this car: GM went after the mass market while Lexus went up-market and has a several month waiting list for 2007 LS's. Right now, it is not exclusive enough and the ... Read More
i'm looking at a 2007 Suburban LTZ loaded...they are citing for 36 months, 15k, a 59% residual and 6.9% APR. does that sound right? The money factor seems really high.

Hi BeamerMan. General Motors is currently providing $1,250 lease cash on GMAC leases of 2007 Cadillac STS V8 and $1,500 on GMAC leases of '07 STS V6 models.

Cadillac and any other of GM's cars will never be "Standard of the World" for several reasons. The following reasons are listed below. 1. The only people who think they ever were standard of the world were those that were of adult age in the 1950's and 60's. At that time Cadillac only sold "luxoboat" sized cars; which makes me question the "standard of the world" question, because standard of the ... Read More
I have uncles that still won't buy anything but a Cadillac, but lucky for them Cadillac really does make something worth buying in 2007. It has to be a "hog". Really, Merc. The STS-V without bluetooth - the STS without an engine...the Escalade without folding rear seats, the CTS without - pretty much everything, the DTS without a driveshaft, the SRX without a theme or the XLR, well, that one isn't ...

I think that a CTS wagon would take sales away from the SRX, especially if the CTS has AWD. However, a CTS wagon could be the new SRX. i think the SRX will be short lived. For 2007 they have redone the interior but not the exterior which will give it legs for a few more years. I read somewhere that Cadillac will get a CUV based on Theta. This will, ... Read More

The Audi system works well, in fact it works very well. But, it is woefully inadequate. You can say "navigation" and then "navigate to _____________ (name tag.)" You can also tell it to show you "everywhere" you have ever been and anything you have stored in the address book. You cannot tell it to find Cincinnati, Ohio, Main Street and Walnut -- unless it is a previous desitnation. I had put ... Read More
I do have a fondness for the German cars we talk about here. It is somewhat confusing that they do seem to follow (in some respects) rather than lead in the HP (and more importantly but hardly ever mentioned torque) contest (I almost said "war.") The M comes out with 280HP whilst BMW has the 225HP -- and while Audi does have a 265HP V6 bi-turbo (which was at that moment ... Read More
I am leaseing a 2005 STS, the lease ends April 2007. Because of illness, i am putting very few miles on the car. (so far 9,000).

I have also done some Excel Calculatin’ ( cypherin’ ? ) regarding the gearing. If I need to buy a 1SG in order to have the final drive ratio I want ( whatever that turns out to be ) and several other items that I consider necessary to make the STS a very sporting Sedan, then I will not be happy. The 3.42 was previously only available with 1SG RWD. The ... Read More
I think that the Ford GM six speed design was for FWDs, although I think the design is modular, so the six speed RWD design is probably related. However, putting the FWD six speed into the DTS and Lucerne will require some design changes for both the FWD northstar and the DTS/Lucerne transaxle. The question is whether the cost of doing this is worthwhile for the remaining production. As I said, ... Read More
I think that the FWD platform was designed for 300 lb-ft of torque and 300 horsepower. The 2007 DTS will not get the six speed automatic. I also think that both the Lucerne and DTS are the last of the big FWD G-platform cars. They will probably remain in production only until a suitable replacement is put into production. The DTS is not a performance car, it is a large medium ... Read More
Though I am also very curious about what other changes will occur for 2007, I have never seen anything from GM to indicate that the six speed automatic in the C6 Corvette does a “rev match on downshift”, though various sources report that it does. I have seen nothing in any 2006 C6 Press Release, the on line order guide or the Owner’s Manual to indicate that it does. I have ... Read More
Those sales numbers are very interesting. There is a lot of talk about the CLS taking E-Class sales on the German car boards eleswhere. Between the CLS and the fact that every other car in the class is newer the E will have a long hard year. In 2004 MB moved 58K Es, I doubt they'll hit 40K this year. Ouch. That 2007 model year facelift can't come soon enough. BMW ... Read More
A fully loaded CTS (luxury/sport) will run about $44,000. A luxury V6 STS with premium package (includes wood trim) will run near $45,000. A sunroof will run the STS price up more.
