I can find very little to complain about since it is a fantastic car. The audio system is good except for difficulty arranging music on the hard drive. Unless you can move the front passenger seat forward or lay it back the headrest creates a large blindspot. I have had irritating check engine lights caused by emission sensors of different systems. Most recently a module of some sort failed leaving steering wheel controls cruise, radio, paddle shifter inoperable. It was an expensive and time consuming repair. As the problems became completely determined, they were eliminated and the car has been trouble free for more than a year. In this small to medium sized town this car gets lots of looks and admiring comments. One guy at local car wash, while doing detailing, had another taking pictures and told me that he was showing his wife what he put on his bucket list.
Super Car performance in a Beautiful, Confortable package that can be driven everyday with ease
I was just surprised with a new 2012 Cadillac CTS-V sedan from my wife. The car is stunning! I have owned several luxury and performance automobiles such as Porsches, Corvettes, Infiniti, Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar and have driven many others. The CTS-V and the other autos mentioned above are cars that the average person will never own, let alone drive in their lifetime. If you are lucky to own one of these automobiles consider yourself lucky and blessed. The CTS-V is simply the "Best Bang for the Buck"...period. You can find very few luxury-performance sedans that are faster, such as the Porsche Panamera Turbo(S) but you have to pay a huge premium for minimal performance gains.
