My Third STS
By mike h on


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


Seems that with each model, Cadillac moves the STS across the scale: away from luxury, closer to sporty This car is fun to drive, but not as comfortable as a luxury car should be. There are some human factors issues to be worked out in: programming features, use of radio from steering column, no room for driver's lower body parts; wind tunnel testing to get rid of a lot of noise.

Best Features

Power and pickup -- this car has more of each than either the '94 or '98 STS. Handling -- a significant improvement over the '94 and '98, neither of which were bad -- really hugs the road. Looks -- very sporty looking, especially in black.

Worst Features

Owner's manual -- written by a team of lawyers and first graders. Wind noise -- sounds like a ford at 70 mph. Cramped drivers area -- windows are at shoulder level, instead of armpit level; no room for legs/knees on long trips; seats not as comfortable as they should be. Radio - no presets on steering wheel.
