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


Review

I have (and do) owned BMW's for years. I am a member of BMWCCA and really appreciate these cars but I was ready for something different. I love this CTS as does my wife who is not a "car person." I have not had any type of problem in these first 9 months. My car is black with all options made plus numerous dealer extras, rear spoiler, back-up light louvers, grill, custom ss exhaust system, cold air intake, complete interior wood and more. Often people stop me to say it is beautiful and ask more about it. I am a car nut and not easy to please but this one has done it. Style is of course a matter of taste but I think this has it all. I have heard some negatives on the interior but do not agree.


Best Features

The engine with varible valve timing producing excellent power at any RPM range or speed. The navigation system, satelite radio, and OnStar are great. It drives very solid with excellent brakes and handling.


Worst Features

I do not know of anything at this time.

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


Review

This is my fourth Cadillac of this ilk: two Cateras and now two CTS. Obviously I have been highly satisfied with all, despite critics who bemoaned the "unreliability" of the Cateras (not true) and the "lack of information" on the '03 CTS. My experience is that the latest CTS is a great car: fine performance, wonderful design and absolutely no trouble.


Best Features

Design, nice acceleration, precision steering and body solidity.

Review

The power is exhilarating! The road maneverabilty is great. It corners very well and it turns around "on a dime". I highly recommend the CTS to everyone.


Best Features

The satellite radio and everything about the car. The styling is great! We especially like the lines; it's not a square box or a rounded box like every other car.


Worst Features

We can't think of any at this time, maybe we haven't had the car long enough, but we are thrilled with the car in every way.

Review

Have not had any problems. Fun car to drive not only the accelerating but it hangs to the road with a small turning radius.


Best Features

Acceleration and turning radius.


Worst Features

None to speak of at this time.
