One problem after another

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


This car is fast in a straight line, but that's about it. The differential is a poorly designed component that can't handle the power the motor puts out. I had the car a little over a year, and had to have it replaced once, and serviced for leaking twice. The suspension is OK, but it still drives like a large car. A lot of other things had to be repaired/replaced under warranty. Do not buy this car if the warranty is close to running out!

Best Features

Power on demand! The motor is very strong in this car. That is about the only thing I liked about the car.

Worst Features

Reliability! All things were fixed under warranty, but it was just at the dealer too many times in a 1 year period.
