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


I am approaching the final months of my lease and my CTS with 36K miles is still fun to drive and looks great. I've noticed that in the past 3 months that the car is "loosening up". More squeaks and rattles. This also happened to my Chevy Equinox at the 2.5 year mark. I am looking for my next lease and I may avoid another GM because of this. My CTS still drives well and looks great inside and out. I avg 19-20 mph in mixed driving.

Best Features

interior design and comfort. crisp handling. decent acceleration. AWD in the winter has been excellent.

Worst Features

braking is a bit soft. slightly better gas mileage would be great. after 2.5 years, starting to hear more squeaks and rattles. inconsistent glitches with the electronics (windows, sunrooof, stereo).
