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


At a time when so many new cars all look alike, this vehicle is truly distinctive in design inside and out. This car handles like a dream. Build quality is great. My average mileage is 23 mpg and on the road at legal-plus speed it is 28 mpg. A little more punch would be nice. I am considering a performance chip if I can find one. I had a problem with the radio coming on all by itself! It took a few phone call and a few months, but it was corrected. On a wet rutted road water splashing under the car on the left side makes a lot of noise.

Best Features

The design-appearance and handling are fantastic. The fit and finish are world class. The sound system is very good.

Worst Features

I would like to have an automatic headlight dimmer feature, back-up camera, more storage bins inside, better view out the rear window, pass- to-flash headlights, non-reflective driver's window to prevent reflection of dash and console lights at night, and better ground-curb clearance for the beak.
