Love my car! Used to have an El Dorado, but this car is a great upgrade.

The heated lumbar seats are great, and the performance is everything I would expect from a Cadillac, despite the v6 engine! Problems have been minimal.

- Molly W

The one most important thing other should know about my car is that it's fast.

The car is very good. It runs a LS based engine, which has good horsepower and good torque. I haven't really experienced any problems.

- Dan D

It is a very reliable vehicle.

The smooth ride, the technology, the comfy seats, the reliability. Overall, I love this car. The color is unique.

- Cynthia M
