Not Good
By Jim Hastings on


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


During my first month of ownership the radio had to be replaced. The keyless entry quit working after 6 months. Also, a "thud" noise when applying the brakes had to be fixed - I am still not sure what that was. The design is too low to the ground, maybe reason that the "plastic" front strip became lose and I ran it over it. The engine has power but it is not equally distrubuted the over wheel base thus the reason for the "black" soot on my chrome wheels. It makes the car look like it hasn't been cleaned in months. I thought the car looked really good but it is definitely not worth the money for all the little quirks that need to be worked out. This is the last GM that I'll buy.

Worst Features

The interior is tight and the console seems too large for the size of the car.
