2010 Cadillac STS V6 Luxury 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I bought a Diamond White Platinum Series STS. It is an outstanding car: exceedingly comfortable; quick response; OUTSTANDING fuel economy (city 21 -highway 25+ at 80MPH!). Superb seating and sound system. Overly complicated navigation system as I do not find it to be intuitive – I liked Chrysler’s system much better. Voice Recognition software is problematic - but I'm learning to deal with it - ticks me off though. The “CTS” navigation software is used in the STS, which results in technical glitches. So far Cadillac has not fixed this issue. Styling is strikingly stunning – it gets a LOT of looks. Road handling is outstanding. I feel very safe driving I’m very happy to drive this car.


Best Features

Style, color, comfort, fuel economy.


Worst Features

Fix the damn navigation software! Do a recall NOW!

2010 Cadillac STS V6 Premium 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I heard such a lot of good things about this car. But, Summary: very nice looking car. Good quality. Awfully complicated controls and navigation system ( what where they thinking !) try to change the hour on the clock. It will take you time and studying the manual! Heavy - it gives you the impression you are in an electric train. If you push it hard it responds. But you are better off with a v8, clearly. It has a ridiculously small gas tank. What were they thinking !). Seats are very hard. Lights are not very good. Great music system not an agile car ( again, needs a v8, also)


Best Features

Great looks. Solid. Good quality. Very good steering feel. Decent brakes (not fantastic)


Worst Features

Extra room for storage. Have the V8 (shame on Edmunds saying that no need to get the V8 since the V6 is similar, it is not). Increase size of gas tank!. Simplify navigation system and OVERALL controls. Better gas mileage in the city. More comfortable seats. What a pity, such a nice looking car..

2010 Cadillac STS V6 Luxury 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Being a long time BMW owner, I did not pay any attention to this Cadillac until I test drove all the major mid-luxury cars in the same course in the GM test drive event. BMW naturally emerged as the winner because I was used with it. But what a surprise, the Caddy STS was as good as the Bimmer 5! It handled in good composure; was fast and smooth. It felt a bit lighter and easier to drive than the BMW (for daily commute). I'd say this car is an athlete in suits. I can zoom pass many muscle cars without making a sound. It's very smooth and quiet. I got 25 mpg in city driving; quite remarkable for a car this powerful. The Bose audio system is the best I've heard in any cars.


Best Features

Powerful DI V6 engine; smooth and quiet ride; secure handling; good fuel economy on regular gas; excellent sound system; handsome looks


Worst Features

Some interior material could be better; rear door entry should be easier

Review

I originally wanted the performance of the 8 cyl.Northstar but with $3.00 gas, I settled for the 302hp DI 6 cylinder. I generally don't like anything with less than 8 cylinders but this STS motor is remarkable. It accelerates like an 8, sounds good and delivers exceptional gas mileage. I thought the trip computer was broken when I averaged 31mpg on a 300 mile highway trip but it was true. The sport gears work well if you want drive aggressively and so far I have had no maintenance issues.The handling is good for 4100lb luxury car but I must admit that I lean towards more agile cars that have suspension treatmentlike the V-series.STS price (after the deal) is alot less than E350 and 530.


Best Features

Direct Injected engine (performance and mileage), seat comfort, keyless entry,bose system


Worst Features

Should offer sport suspension including brembo style brakes, larger wheels/tires, that are designed by GM for the car...aftermarket options for a caddy or any luxury car makes it look like a pimpmobile.
