Dissappointed, and surprised
By Jamie K on


2008 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


Disappointed, and surprised. Others don't agree. My father picked up the newly redesigned CTS last year as his third Cadillac. As I am a huge BMW fan, the 2008 CTS falls way behind. First, big improvement over the embarrassing interior design of the first CTS, but the looks deceived me. When I drove the car, I was disappointed in many things. The driver's seat is too tight and not appropriate for a luxury car. The dashboard looks beautiful, but its functionality is poor, and again too tight a fit. Acceleration is typical GM, jumpy with an intense torque if you don't have a gentle-minded foot. The dealer-installed rear bumper proximity beeper is downright annoying.

Worst Features

This car needs a dashboard that’s as clever to use as it looks. The passenger side front suspension had to be replaced in less than a year. The steering wheel is cheap. No auto- up/down window buttons on every door says this car IS cheap. Heated seats/buttons are poor. Very little justifies the price
