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


The cts is absolutely the sexiest car I've ever driven. Bought it used w/ 35k - certified. Styling, comfort and handling were outstanding. Consistently 30 mpg hgwy! I drive 30k a year, but I baby my cars... Many annoying little things (costly w/o warranty): oil leak, sunroof Glass, loose interior panels, tie rods all before 60k. Worse off at 90k: 2 thermostats. As soon as the warranty ended (a month later): coolant check valves and hoses, head gaskets, rear bearings, etc. "certified" is the best! Buy this car because it's excellent... Trade it before the warranty is up... I took a $12k loss and went back to Japanese quality. FYI even the base model accord offers the same options as a CTS.

Best Features

great gas mileage. great factory tire/brake life. exceptionally fun to drive. tilt passenger mirror! sexy inside and out. tons of programmable gadgets and monitors.

Worst Features

performance severely dampens with mileage. build a better/less complex cooling system.
