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


Bought the CTS after owning 3 Maximas.
Thought I would be getting another
Maxima (2005), but after test driving
the CTS, I ran to the dealer and put my
money down on the table. Love the car--
great looks, great drive. Still
somewhat paranoid about buying an
American car, but with the 4 yr/ 50,000
mile warranty, I feel less so. The JD
Powers recent review of Cadillac also
ups my confidence level in the car. My
last American car was a 1974 Vega-
Fiasco. Hoping that the CTS lasts me 7-
8 years, my usual time of ownership for
a car.

Best Features

Classy innovative and out-of-the- ordinary looks; handling; relatively tight construction.

Worst Features

Tidy up the dash; in general, I like it, but can't get past the desktop computer CPU sticking out in the middle of the dash. Also,(really picky)I hate the sound of the turnsignal indicator- hollow and cheap sounding. Do away with the foot-pedal parking brake!
