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


Review

Just over 46K on this car and it needs a new engine! There was no warning that it had burned all the oil up. After reading more reviews I'm not the only one. I was just out of my warranty, but GM did try to help saying they would pay for 50% of the replacement. Not so fast! Turns out they have to replace the motor the "GM" way, the dealer wouldn't even quote me a price. After asking again he said that it could run more than just putting in a new motor. Thanks, but no thanks! I'll put in a new motor, how's that for BILLIONS of bailout money? I'm sure our kids/grandkids are very happy with our investment. GM should have DIED, don't buy a Caddy.


Worst Features

Build something that works and lasts.

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


Review

worst car i have ever owned, not worth the money, leather cracked and peeling at 3 yrs old. the interior is poorly constructed with very little space. the service is poor at the dealership. i was informed that my exhaust system needs to be replaced because i must have hit sometime underneath because there is a small scratch on it but no scratch on the rear bumper, how is that possible. poor service and poorly constructed car. car was cheap, with a high price tag

Review

At 46K miles on my 2005 3.6L CTS the water pump slowly leaked water and i caught it before it could overheat the motor. I also changed the cap for the radiator overflow water bottle. Stayin on top of it with oil changes and intricate transmission oil change.

Review

after having the car for 2 years, it started burning oil. I have taken it to 3 different dealers and because the warranty was almost up. Nobody cared to help get the warrenty company to pay for any repairs as they all told me there was nothing wrong even though I was going thru almost 5 quarts of oil every 3000 miles. other than that I love the car although the airbag sensor and the passenger seat went out right after the warranty was up.


Best Features

I love the shape of the car


Worst Features

figure out what is wrong with it burning oil

Review

This is my first Cadillac since 1989 and I love this car. Paid dealer too much for it as a certified used car, need to repaint front bumper, but I love the way it runs and feels. Very, very sporty feel for a sedan.


Best Features

Engine & transmission very responsive for a V-6. Seats are comfortable. Ride is firm but comfortable. Like the tight steering.


Worst Features

Had problems with stability control, fixed under warranty. Lots of people complain of these problems.
