Bought this beautiful car with low miles (6,000 at two years old) and drove it on a long commute for a couple of years. Really enjoyed it, with the exception of the front seats being not as comfortable as they should be. All was well until I neared 100,000 miles, and then....engine issues. Leaking gasket and two quarts oil down when it shouldn't be. Pinion leak (AWD) too. Dealer wanted $2,000 for both repairs. Took it to a great local mechanic who said he had a 2009 CTS on the hoist to replace an engine, which he said he sees too frequently for this model and year. Having previously only leased cars, I'd hoped to drive this beauty for another few years. But, looks like I'll be in for some big bills unless I trade it in. Will miss driving a Cadillac.
traction control stabilitrak is a dangerous Joke on this car. I have a 2009 cts with 72,000 miles on it. Service stabilitrak light comes on and this car will lose power and jerk itself into convulsions. a scary thing to happen when merging in traffic. dealer can' t solve the problem after 3 service visits. also the sunroof leaks despite clearing the drains the trunk looks like aa bath tub after a heavy rain. annoying. these problems are posted on the internet yet the dealer cant explain or solve the riddle. ride is great I love the look but the product is a lemon. fess up Cadillac you missed it on this one and you don't seem to know it
