Audio System Atrocious

2012 Cadillac CTS Performance 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


There are lots of things to love about the Cadillac. The incentives are what got me, the design, the handling, the power...

However, ALL of that isn't worth the car for one reason and one reason only. The absolutely complete MESS of navigation and especially the phone system.
1) when you get a call, the number appears on the DASH but the CONNECT button is on the NAV SCREEN and it pops up MAYBE 25% of the time. The audio voice will instruct you to hit a button, but when you do... nothing happens and you will lose calls ALL THE TIME. It CANNOT put your iphone contact list into its system (are you kidding?) and the "hands free calling" is worse than the Prius (which was horrific).

Best Features

Style, interior craftsmanship, ride, handling, comfort, price

Worst Features

Key CONSTANTLY hitting your knee (and I'm an average 6 foot) Sound system is probably one of the single WORST I've experienced in owning cars. Hydraulic trunk that stays open!
