2009 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sedan AWD w/Direct Injection (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

The first day out of the dealership an ignition coil failed and had to be replaced. Once fixed the car has been amazing. The road holding, acceleration and ride are on par with many sport sedans. The all wheel drive works flawlessly in snow, rain, etc. The drivers handle failed (antenna would not respond to the transmitter) last month and had to be replaced. The optional blue tint coat paint gets rave reviews where ever I go. The gas mileage averages 20.5 (80% road, 20% city).


Best Features

Slick NAV screen. Road handling. Design and Optional Paint job.


Worst Features

Electronics need improvement still not on par with Lexus. Heads up display would be a great option.

2009 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sedan AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

gas guzzler; squealing brakes; oil consumption problem; rumbling in engine when climbing hills; replacement of brake brackets and pad at 4500 miles! Nothing but problems. Shorted out wire; car broke down within 12 hrs. of pick from dealership; had to be flat-bedded back - a big red flag from day one! Gorgeous looking car but many problems! Hard to believe that there is no "low engine" light on the dash board - what were these engineers thinking?


Best Features

Love the exterior lines of the car; fabulous color; comfortable interior; handles great on highway


Worst Features

Installation of oil light on dash board - very important; the installation of a camera when backing up; some sight distance problem; the rear-view mirror could be larger to give driver better view.

Review

i love this car. Have been a japanese fan for over 30 years becuase they built better cars but i can say that this car is built better than my Lexus. No problems to report after 9 months. I'm real happy about that:)


Best Features

I love the looks inside and out. Everything is placed in the right spot. I got a lot of compliments about this car.


Worst Features

a little more storage up front would be nice.

Review

My first American car in 30 years and I finally have a car I'm happy to say is as good as my Lexus, BMW and Mercedes I've had in the past. I hope GM keeps up the good work.


Best Features

I love the design and detail of both the interior and exterior of this car.


Worst Features

Could use some more storage space.

Review

Nimble handling and tight steering. Quick response. Smooth shifting transmission. Power engine sound. What more can you want? Handling, horsepower, responsive, sounds great, looks great, and still 27 mpg. Hands down -- best buy on luxury sports sedan out there....
