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


I have oened 1983 and 1989 Cadillac Fleetwoods
and a 1999 Cadilac Deville The CTS isn't as nice as
any of them, luxury-wise. I also have a 2000 Mazda
2k Miata LS. The CTS isn't even as sporty as the Miata.\
Well, maybe it can keep pace with it on a
straightaway but the Miata would kill
it in the curves. Make no mistake the
CTS is NOT an all weather Corvette.

THE GOOD: The new CTS has great
looking sheet metal, ergonomic steering
wheel and console controls; shiftable
automatic transmission w/sport and snow
options. It does have a trip computer.
It’s a dry pavement 0-100 monster.

THE BAD: It felt drifty on the highway
at first-feeling passed. It needed to have an
alignment before 5,000 miles. The dealer couldn't do
it the same day and the fix cost me $50 at an alignment

Best Features

I prefer the Pontiac Bonneville or Acura the TL/TSX to this car because they all have more HP.

Worst Features

IMPROVEMENTS: Bring back Tape Deck so that I can use it as an imput for my IPOD is. A Bluetooth interface phone (Acura) seems superior to OnStar’s personal calling. An IPOD interface (BMW) would beat XM radio. We already have phones and CD’s. Cadillac needs to focus more on what people have and on subscriptions.
