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