2005 Cadillac STS Sedan Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I bought my used with 45k on it, I love the way the car drives and handles, I put a set of 22 inch wheels on it,that makes it very unique, I love the way my car looks. I wish it had a bigger trunk and more space in the glove box. I did had some problems with the car making some noise coming from the ac vents, it sounded like someone was passing gas (upps) other than that, I love my car, I wish I had bought the V8 AWD


Best Features

The car design, interior and the performance


Worst Features

Fix that trunk make it bigger. I hate the resale value, I got a good deal on my but i'm still upside down on it, I can't believe it has lost more than 60 percent of the value in 3 years

2005 Cadillac STS Sedan Rwd 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

owning and especially driving this beauty are an absolute pleasure, yea there is the odd glitch here and there such as the interior shud be a bit more prestigous. the 320 hp is awesome they shud have made it a 360hp or so but the 320hp is superfine. sound system is beyond prestige. it handles like a sports car born on the track. what a sweet ride u built it right this time caddy, the headlight and light system mated to the front fascia is a designers showpiece.


Best Features

the power, handling and the sound system,also the power moonroof,fairly nice leather, that sports car feel, never tire of driving this first class car, nice fairly quiet ride


Worst Features

a little bit plasticy interior,nice wood trim tho, rain sense wipers a waste of an option who needs it, steering could be a bit tighter shud have come with a six speed in 05, bigger fuel tank body seams shud be tighter/closer

2005 Cadillac STS Sedan Rwd 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I've loved this car since we got it new back in 04. And now I'm purchasing it from my parents, thanks to luxury cars' famous depreciation. This AWD car replaced our beloved 2003 Audi A6 and surpassed it in almost every way (gas mileage being one of the only exceptions [minor]). The car is built as well if not better, has AWD, is incredibly fast for a heavy 4-door, looks fantastic in every angle-inside and out, fun to drive (handles well), and the stereo wipes out every other car stereo I've ever heard-standard or aftermarket. 97k miles on it and has been absolutely reliable. My parents have now bought a new CTS-V and will probably stick with Cadillacs forever. I will likely do the same.


Best Features

Northstar V8, AWD, Bose 5.1 sound, exterior appearance, interior lay-out and quality (still my favorite design ever), magnetic ride control (handles well & can be smooth if you want it to be), great interior and has held up well, keyless system, lights, auxiliary input on a 2005 car, fun! etc


Worst Features

Leg room maybe? Oh yeah! glove box is kind of hard to access with a passenger.

Bigger truck and glove box.

Review

I keep a number of cars- for business, fun, performance and some just to look at. The STS is meant for business appts and really fits the category. Picking a client up in a $100k car or a $1k car sends a message. It's great for taking my hottie out on the town. No worries about the elements or parking lots. Don't settle for less then a fully optioned vehicle. Get the heads up display, V8, navi, sunroof, 15 speaker bose, adaptive cruise, 18 inch wheels. Reliability is an issue along with finding knowledgeable, competent and confident service.


Best Features

American V8 torque. Love the 5spd auto with the passing gear. Good car for heavy mileage, depreciation figured in. Not as quick as my old 540 6spd, but it's less then 1/3 THE PRICE! Beamer's are not good in the weather and you always worry about parking lot shananagans.


Worst Features

What happened to Cadillac's superior seats? My F250 is more comfy. The buttons wear, the pdl's failed. Can't make a BT call while the veh is moving. Use handsfree. PITA. Clear coat is cheap, stone chips and pitting from water marks. XM going through hard times. CC should be on the st wheel.
