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


I owned the CTS4 with every option since new. (as well as many many other vehicles) I was generally happy with it, especially how it ran in the snow. You can't beat AWD. For a V6, it can move pretty well. The navigation and Bose sound system is probably its best point. It seemed to do everything well, but nothing stands out. I love our country, but the Germans really are on top in the quality department. On the surface, the interior looks nice, but the leather is thin, and everything else is just cheap plastic.
The drivers seat broke. They wanted 1200 to fix it. It came with "heated windshield washers" but they disengaged it due to failure after 1 year. With no fix possible.

Best Features

The look is good. The audio is superb.

Worst Features

Get rid of the cheap plastic look and feel. Look at the competition as far as general workmanship is concerned. The key fob is super cheap, and it won't last long.
