Never buy again
By Shay on


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


I liked the looks of this car when it first came out so I bought one. I should have waited until they figured out the problems. I had instant problems with the check engine light. It took 5 trips back to the dealer before they figured out that it was the thermostat and had to reset the sensors every time. Now it dies when you come to a stop. The final kicker was the headlamp. It went out so I looked in the manual on how to replace it. Of course it said see dealer. They quoted me $1100 to replace it. How stupid is the design team at GM? I will never buy another GM car.

Best Features


Worst Features

A head light that the owner can replace. Smother over bumps. Dash is too close to the passenger. More reliable engine.
