I have never owned a pontiac, but i love this car!!!!!!! All cars have downsides be it maintenance, gas or whatever. I've owned mostly ford mustang gt`s, but i bought a 94 caddy 3 yrs ago and i was transformed into a gm man. My wife has a 2003 caddy cts under 28,000 miles, and this car rides as good as this minus the toys;" she also agrees". Power is better than her 3.2 2003 Cts. This car is a sleeper. I have the base model. But its more than adequate; see for yourself. Also before i forget; the caddy has been in the shop for little annoying things, and as of today her powersteering pump is leaking and the car is acting funny; dealer said they are going to fix it, luckily.
