I love the look of this car and driving it is great. The car really has lots of get up and go when you need it. However, now that it's a few years old (30K miles), everything is starting to rattle on it. I wanted to buy a newer model, but now I don't think I would buy another one. They cost too much to be such rattle traps, especially so soon.
The powerful motor and quick acceleration. The car looks sharp and handles great.
Quality needs to be improved. At 30,000 miles the car should not be rattling and squeaking.
At 20,000 miles started using oil, approx. 2 quarts every 1000 miles, returned car to dealer, was told 1 quart every 700 miles is normal according to Cadillac. Are they serious? Yes they are read owners manual. Cannot wait for lease to end.
Bought the car in '06 and loved it from the start, until the first snow hit and I realized how much rear wheel drive stinks. I was all over the place, must have had a few mini heart attacks on the commute home from work. The worst was a few weeks ago, I was rear ended and sandwiched between 2 cars. No air bag deployment and my seatbelt brought me up to the steering wheel, then decided to kick in and pull me back, the car just broke apart. I was sad, but will definitely go with something else now, with better fuel mileage and NO REAR WHEEL DRIVE!!!!
This is one of the best cars I've owned. The power train is smooth and powerful. It handles like a sports car. I love the crisp angular styling. It is very comfortable for long trips. The driver's seat is supremely comfortable (on the other hand the front passenger seat is uncomfortable). The car has been totally reliable except for a sun shade that came loose. The interior has too much plastic and doesn't give a luxurious impression. The car is priced like a small BMW or Mercedes but has the interior room of their larger 500 and E series. One of the most endearing features is the extremely small turning radius. The car is very nimble and easy to park as a result.
Performance, nimble handling, driver's seat comfort, styling, reliability. Great gas mileage on the road (34 mpg).
Improve the quality of the interior materials. Needs a more luxurious interior.
I leased this about 18 months ago and it has been a very reliable car. It handles poorly with just the smallest amount of snow or wintry precip on the ground. The gas mileage is around 23 mpg with all highway driving.

Interior is not as luxurious as you would expect in a caddy. Plastic trim on the doors is not appealing at all.
