It's a little early to give a real in depth review, but so far, so good. This is my third wagon, the first being a BMW 3 and the most recent a loaded Magnum HEMI. I never imagined driving a Caddy until I saw this beauty. The interior quality is excellent and so is the ride. Fit, finish and touch are exactly what I was looking for and are better than BMW. BMW has been stuck in a time warp for far too long. You can't really compare this to the Magnum HEMI quality wise, but HEMI wins the need for speed any day. The Caddy is no HEMI (unless you get the CTS-V). I had owned it less than 30 minutes before I got my first compliment. It's a pleasure to drive fun to drive.
I bought this 2010 Premium model three months ago with $13,000 discount. The Performance and Fun to Drive factors are the best I have ever owned. Previously I have had Mercedes, Lincoln, and Chrysler models. A comparison with BMW, Mercedes, Audi proves that this car is superior in every respect. Cadillac has truly taken the lead According to my Diagnostic Report I won't have the change the oil for 11,000 miles and it uses regular fuel. I get 17mpg around town and 28mpg on the highway.
I've been VERY impressed by the Premium AWD 3.6 CTS wagon. It's such a refined, tasteful, fun to drive automobile. The interior is really well done--leather stitched dash, real wood--nice tactile touches. The exterior styling is beautiful and unique. It drives as nicely as any car I've driven--precise handling, smooth quiet ride and a lot of power. I have the thunder gray finish-- it's gorgeous. The sound system is top shelf--I use a usb thumb drive and I have all the music I need without having to bring the ipod with me. I'm proud that an American company made such a great vehicle!
Just bought it and love it. I also have a 2005 CTS-V and compare the handling of this car favorably to the - V. I find power ample but not breathtaking. I note that some car mags complain about the tranny Sport mode logic, but I find it doing just about the same thing, at the same time, as I'd be doing with my -V manual Tremec. I'm 6'1" and find the seating a bit cramped at the knees but still quite comfortable touring. I'll have a hard time chosing between the wagon or the -V for a trip.
