2003 Cadillac CTS: When it's running, it's great. Not for the faint of wallet.

2003 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sdn

The performance of the 3.2-liter v6 engine is quite impressive. The comfort I would say could be improved, as the stock seats, leather and design feel rather rigid. The features are quite nice, as it has buttons on the steering wheel to control quite several things on the car. The reliability I wish I could say was better, as I find this car to be extremely finicky when it comes to this subject. The battery has very strict voltage requirements, and if it's only a few tenths of a volt lower than it should be, it will start to act crazy! I have had a few problems dealing with this car that also are a detriment to its reliability factor. For example, this vehicle always has something going on within the electrical system, regardless of what it is complaining about has been repaired. The fuel pump is an absolute nightmare to change out, as one has to lift the rear end of the vehicle, lower the subframe almost 2 feet, and then remove around eight or nine oddly placed bolts. The labor in replacing the gas tank alone is rated at 10 hours. This car is not for someone who is scared to spend some money. Overall, I feel this vehicle has had its ups and downs, but there are worse out there at the same time. If one can afford the upkeep, and take good care of the vehicle, they make for one of the smoothest rides on the road.

CTS Luxury sports sedan. Quick, responsive and stylish.

2003 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sdn

The CTS is a great car. It was my introduction to the Luxury Sports Sedan market and I am hooked. I am the second owner of this car. It handles very well, turning is responsive and easy. The accelerator is sensitive and the car can fly. I have no trouble merging onto busy highways and can keep up with the traffic easily. It's quiet from inside and you can't tell the difference from 45 - 65 mph. The cabin is a 5 seater and seats 4 adults comfortably. The seats feel great driver and passenger seats are fully adjustable, seat heaters are really nice in the winter. The dual climate control is great and easy to navigate. The sunroof control is a simple dial, you can go with preset positions or whatever in between. Also the information center is clear, bright and easy to use. I can't wait to purchase a newer model. I will continue to own CTS models.

My 03 Cadillac cts keeps heads turning and making me look like a million bucks!

2003 Cadillac CTS

If your looking for a car with great performance, great mpg and style, then the 2003 Cadillac cts is for you. On a winding road look to be impressed with the way it handles tight corners. Seats five people, features 5 speed transmission with manual w/overdrive. I like the fact you can change your music station from the steering wheel. Not really a family car, and I do not like the rear wheel drive. Living in northern Minnesota it is not something you want to drive in the winter. All in all I do like my 2003 Cadillac cts, it is a fun car to drive.
