2005 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Before I got my CTS this year I was driving a 2003 Cadillac Catera, which the CTS replaced. The Catera was a poor attempt to compete with the other luxury automakers who had made entry level automobiles. The CTS though is a vast improvement that not only looks better, but drives better, and comes with much more standard equipment and even better options. This has been one of the best cars that Cadillac has made so far. I would guess that the CTS is probably one of Cadillac's most successful vehicles since the STS, which also took the same form as the CTS when they were remaking the Sevilles. It is just a little larger but for the most part it is the same car. The CTS is also nicely priced.


Best Features

My favorite features about this car are the sport shift which allows me to drive it as if it was a manual, the adapative cruise control which allows me to speed up and also slow down without having to push the gas or the break, and the power moonroof.


Worst Features

Well to compete with it's similar vehicles in its class, such as Lexus and BMW I would sugguest that the CTS has the new tehcnology of push start which is in the STS. I would also sugguest that they have run flat tires like the BMW so that it looks more sporty. This is a feature that is in demand.

2005 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This is my first Cadillac - I was considering my first non-American purchase since buying a used Honda from a family member several years ago. My father has had several and purchased an STS in the past couple of months in black - which was the color I thought I wanted. When I put my feature list together, the dealer could DX the car in silver, white or red. I love the red! People make a point to tell me they like the car.


Best Features

Complete air bag system - may I never have to use it, but I feel safe in this car. Bose stereo - set for driver's side, nice! Great manuvering. I drive it 100 miles every day I go to work - on the Beltway it is great.


Worst Features

A glove box that fits more than the owners manual. But really, if I get more passenger legroom and a safer airbag configuration, that is worth it.

2005 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I bought this car based on the style and a friend's enthusiastic endorsement. It's a good riding car, but the engine runs much rougher than my Honda's ever did. I am kind of disappointed with all the plastic in the interior and with the low gas mileage. The cigarette lighter hasn't worked since I drove it off the lot. But...everyone loves the styling.


Best Features

Styling and electronics.


Worst Features

Add a fold down rear seat. Less plastic in the interior. Re-designed ashtray with a light. Bigger glove compartment.
