Get Rid of the Bimmer
By Former M5 Owner on


2005 Cadillac CTS-V 4dr Sedan (5.7L 8cyl 6M)


As a previous Porsche Boxster and BMW M5 owner I was skeptical about an American-made CADILLAC for myself (40-year old former European-make snob) to satisfy my craving for a family sedan and performance vehicle that didn't break my kid's college fund. It blew me away on the test drive. Its 400hp matched my M5 and shifting was a breeze. Its handling is excellent. I would recommend this car to any M5 owner who is looking for an alternative.

Best Features

The handling, horsepower, exterior look, xenon headlights, and built in XM satellite radio.

Worst Features

Get rid of skip-shift feature (in first gear car skips from 1st to 4th gear to save gas)--if I wanted to save gas I would buy a Hyundai. Give additional options for more leather interior and an option for headlight washers and iPod integration.
