2012 Cadillac CTS Coupe Coupe Premium 2dr Coupe AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
Typical coupe, difficult enter/exit of rear seats. However, very nice features, performance, comfort for a sport/luxury coupe and great design. Had the vehicle since new and hate to trade it in for the more bland(er) newer Caddy's.

Don't expect anyone to get into or ride in the back seat. Nearly impossible to sit up as adult and thus should consider this car a "two seater" and 3/4 only in emergency or children (w/o childseat...it is very hard to get it in and kids head will hit ceiling!). Golf clubs will NOT fit widthwise: sure the car is wide enough, but GM Engineers (in their infinate wisdom) made the trunk supports so they come down in the trunk and squish anything taller than 4" tall for at least 6" from each side. And the best engineering feat? Do NOT let your key fob go dead or low. To get into car (there are NO key holes in either door) you have to open the trunk (the key hole is 3" above license plate top...hidden. Once trunk is open, there is a plastic pull tab under rear window deck (if you are over 5' tall, you cannot see it without leaning into trunk). Pulling opens driver door. You now are in the car-but fob is only way to start it-so you are sunk. Don't get me wrong, I love this car-but you had better know idiosyncracies before buying it!

Don't buy a CTS coupe if you have difficulty getting in/out of a car, or are looking for a roomy rear seat compartment for adults. Do buy the car if you appreciate a solid, responsive and capable road experience. I bought the RWD because I preferred a smoother drive compared to the AWD CTS's I tested, and have so far experienced very good traction on interstate travel in downpours. Doubt I will want to drive the CTS during major snowstorms, but I bought it already having a car for extreme winter weather. I think the car looks great and garners respect from other vehicles. I have read about CTS owners who experience a 'shudder' in low speeds before the transmission moves into a higher gear. I have experienced this one or two times at very low speeds, but during normal driving acceleration it has not been noticed. I wanted a comfortable touring car with a lot of attitude, and this is what I've found the car to have. Less than 40,000 miles and runs like new.
