2004 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5M)


Obviously, most positive reviews are looks and fun. It does look good, but is only fun in optimal driving conditions. If sliding (from a stop at slow acceleration) on slightly wet pavement is is fun, it's fun. I've driven in Illinois winters for sixteen years; this is the only car I've ever slid off the road in. Interior looks good for awhile, but black finish on control buttons has chipped off. Interior lights dim off and on, and the cruise control has been disengaging--it only has 18,000 miles on the car. To this date, it has had three recalls. Don't waste money on a tired name when there are car quality companies producing luxury vehicles built with the driver in mind.
