I decided to purchase the Cadillac to come back and purchase a car made in America that is as good if not better than the German cars. I switched from my 750i BMW to this car. Before the BMW I had an AMG E55 Mercedes and both those cars were great. I drove the new E63 AMG and the M5 before deciding on the Caddy. I have put 2000 miles on the car and it really is a great car. Everything works, the car looks great, nice fit and finish. The engine just has a nice rumble and everything works with no drama. Just press the gas pedal and hang on! Handling reminds of my Porsche, just a tight nice ride and it loves the hills. A GREAT value for such a world class car. No regrets at all.
I recently put my second CTS on the road. 26 mpg mixed highway and in-town driving. Excellent. I am a very good driver and no heavy foot driving. 2010 CTS is 200 lbs heavier apparently, and to me the weight difference was noticable immediately. Handles well, good steering, good traction. Lacking head room; interior roof line is low. I like to drive sitting quite high so as to overlook the front end, but a tall person could have difficulty. Also the curvature of the top of the door line at the frame means I have to duck well to avoid hitting my head. So far that is my only complaint. I am a REALTOR so I have to know my vehicle is reliable. This is my fifth Cadillac since 1985.
If 556 HP, numerous features, 14 way Recaro seats, leather and luxury is desired, this is a vehicle to consider. Driven everyday as a daily driver, but has the capability to be taken very seriously on a track or closed high speed course. Think of it as a 4 door Corvette with a back seat and trunk. The Magnetic Ride Control suspension and selectable Comfort/Sport and (4) StabiliTrack settings work like a dream. BMW owners with Sport Packages would likely keep it set to Sport mode and not notice any harsh or bumpy ride. Designed by GM Performance group and utilizes many Corvette ZR-1 parts.

This is the easiest-to-drive car Iíve ever driven or owned. Itís so powerful! Not just fast, itís powerful. Itís a dream to handle in part because itís impressively powerful. It speeds up, slows down, turns corners and does everything very, very well, and of course, itís very powerful. Itís better than any of the pony cars Iíve owned or the ĎVetts or the imported sports cars. Itís better than the BMW it replaced. Itís gorgeous inside and out. It looks good and feels good and it impresses even me. It is the 23rd new car Iíve treated myself to since I graduated college and it is the unqualified best ever. Oh, and itís very powerful, too.
I recently purchased the CTS-V 2010 and every where I went someone wanted to know is that the new "V" and was very impressed by the look, interior style and sound. The ride is plush, with a rocket for a motor and acceleration is just awesome. I purchased a 2006 SRT 10 Ram "Viper powered" new and added aftermarket products. Although the truck is awesome for acceleration and handling, it has nothing on the CTS-V. Both are eye catchers but the CTS-V is a head taller. Ride, comfort, interior design, music, performance is just outstanding in the V. If you are ready for the ride of your life, buy one or make friends with someone who has a CTS-V because any seat is the ride of your life.
