2006 Cadillac STS V8 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 5A)


I have had 4 major failures repairs to date. Purchased in July 06. 1. Front end rack and pinion failure- two occurences 2. Wheel bearings in both front and back 3. Park gear sensor in transmission replaced-computer does not recognize that car is in park. 4. Im afraid #3 has caused a problem with the transmission as the car does not have any "impulse" power when put in drive. 5. Overall very disappointing automobile so far. I would definitely not recommend purchasing. I certainly will not make this mistake again. BMW and Lexus much better for the money. I have owned both. Tried to go with American car maker this time around. Extremely disappointed. Good Luck.

Best Features

Good power. But not a very smooth ride.

Worst Features

I think the overall quality of the engineering is poor. I understand the desire to compete with other muscle cars, but this is not even a close imitation of the BMW M (have owned) or Benz AMG
