Not ready for prime time
By Chris on


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


This is my fifth STS. Great performance and style other than the added spoiler. Poor fit on the rear doors & trim. Bluetooth phone still not functional, traction contol is disengaged under sport shift - no solution yet. Various other glitches (remote start did not supply fuel, transmission stumble at low speeds). Trunk is quite bit smaller than the outgoing model. A potentially great car introduced before it was debugged.

Best Features

Keyless entry, push button start, Northstar power, interior design, huge DVD screen, overall style is modern yet elegant, awd traction, more of a driver's car than the old model.

Worst Features

Debug and improve the quality of the subsystems, need GM database solutions of reported problems, improve fit on doors / trim, integrate the rear spioler if they must have one, redesign the rear of the car - frumpy.
