2008 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sedan w/Direct Injection (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Fully optioned: AWD, black with black, DI 300hp engine. MSRP is $48,090. Which btw u cannot properly configure on Edmunds as the options they list differ somewhat then what Caddy actually will do. Without question the car draws attention. Ride is smooth & very tight though w/18" wheels expect to get plenty of road feel; which is a new experience with Caddy. I extensively test drove the BMW 5 & 3 series and this car matches them in >95% of handling characteristics. A- Trans is like silk. Extremely minor flaw in fit, but it would only be noticed by perfectionists :). Rides very quiet, except on hard accel where you hear it growl. Motortrend said motor is rough at idle, but mine is smooth

Best Features

36 preset radio stations! Nav system is best have ever seen, beats MB and BMW. Pop-up screen is ultra cool. Again, this car is quiet with regards to exterior noise. The engine is also quiet except when really pushed, but the sound is cool. Remote start, keyless access should valuable in winter.

Worst Features

I would have paid extra for a multi- contour seat. The seats are very good (about same as std BMW), but I am tall and would like the thigh support. On plus side front leg room is extraordinaty. Also, needs deeper center storage unit. Pedals should adjust and more telescope on the wheel.
