"This is a really great car but future owners need to understand that this a sports car which requires high cost to get it fixed ! I purchased my 05 CTS from an old man who couldn't keep up with the repairs so I took it off his hands for a very nice price below market with 70k on it. I replaced the brakes,rotors, tires, wiper motors, changed the coils, trunk lifters, and it was ready to roll and I love it. It now has 124k and I have made a couple of repairs the body module cost 1k to fix other than that the car is awesome to drive and looks very nice. It really is a great mix of luxury and sporty and handles really nice also love the cabin and the seats real nice. So to summarize great car but you must take care of it ...."

"We cannot fault the performance of this auto. Now with almost 208,000 miles, we have had only one repair! The timing chain needed to be replaced a year ago, and while this was expensive, it was the sole problem in all these years. This car has excellent pick-up, decent handling, and is comfortable for the driver and passenger. The back seat is a bit cramped, and the trunk is just average. We have performed oil changes as specified and check-ups. We have enjoyed this car, and found the Cadillac service to be very responsive, as it loaned us a car for just oil changes! Can't beat that!"
