2003 Cadillac CTS Sedan 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This car was in the shop all the time I lost count. Literally on the road for no more than 6 months straight before the next repair, timing belt, radiator, transmission work, water pump these are the ones I remember. Love the look and handle of the car but its not worth the headache!


Best Features

Look, comfort


Worst Features

Better quality inside

2003 Cadillac CTS Sedan 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Car purchased with 9000 miles It was not titled until I purchased it Exec.car. We put over 14000 miles a year car now has 81000 on it. G.M replaced 3 of 4 Good Year tires and didn't help much. Put 4 Bridgestone Pole positions and the car went like it was on rails. Wonderful This car has the Sport Suspension on it ant the wife and I love the way it handles and rides. We drive it hard on long trips and regularly get near 28 miles per gallon.Large trunk with amazing space. Navigation system is not user friendly but gives you lots of other features related to the car. We found a great 2009 CTS and will pick it up in a couple of days. Would have liked to keep it in the family


Best Features

Handling,style,trunk space,ride, comfort.A good one like this one would only bring about 10 to $11000 a great buy if it has been taken care of by the owner


Worst Features

Navigation system requires numerous expensive cd's to cover several states and is not user friendly although it gives you other helpful features related to the car mechanics.Also this year CTS was able to be updated to the later digital ON Star system.

Review

I bought this certified pre-own (34K miles)car as a lease turn in and have been regreting it ever since.After 50k miles the car fell apart I've spent over $6k in repairs on this piece of junk and it only has 110k miles on it and it is currently broke down now. The brake lines in the rear rusted out with a repair cost of $1100.The oil pump started leaking at 75k miles. Take my advice STAY AWAY from Cadillac they will screw you in the end and to top it off they issue no recalls for this car at all and they know it has major issues! I REALLY HATE THIS CAR it like a bad marriage and I want OUT!!!
