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


Faster than a BMW 545, more comfortable that an M5, and thousands less than both, this is a great value if you like to drive fast in comfort. Handles very well, sound system is great, and seats are comfortable, yet firm enough to work. This is a very good competitor to BMW 5 series, which I used to own. The interior is spartan. This is a performance car, not a a luxury car, although the creature comforts are excellent. You just don't feel like you're in an expensive luxury car. If driving is your objective, then you have to try this car. I would like a quieter, smoother transmission, that doesn't force you into 4th gear at certain speeds.

Best Features

Handling, acceleration, seats, sound system. Brakes. Price.

Worst Features

Quieter, smoother transmission. Lose the first-to-fourth feature. Very annoying. Trunk that opens when unlocked. Interior air filtration system. Hand brake, rather than foot brake. Put the hood release down further from the brake release
