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.

It is dark grey. 20' rims. Low to the ground in the front. It is beautiful.

2003 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sdn

Well it is quite an old car. I bought it brand new in 2003. It is still in extremely good condition. But with Cadillac's you just have to make sure you can afford the upkeep in order to have your Cadillac run like it is brand new. Some issues I have it the gas tank light comes on and sometimes I fix the problem but it doesn't go off. I've had to replace the driver's side window because it started to leak. But it had been a very good car I've had to buy one battery but that's expected.

It had continuous problems due to leaking when it rains

2003 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sdn

The car leaks when it rains, water gets into the trunk and the doors and had to be drained. Now the car has electrical problems due to the water leak and the mechanic is unable to locate the source of the wiring issue. The car is rear wheel drive and is awful in the snow and/or rain because the traction control prevents it from moving when the road is wet. It is also not very good on gas.

Why should you own a 2003 Cadillac cts?

2003 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sdn

The Cadillac cts is a modern yet sleek vehicle to drive. There's plenty of legroom in the front and back, and super spacious trunk for those groceries and whatever else you need to carry. It's great on gas and only costs $50 to fill it up. It fits my family of 4 perfectly with extra space. She drives smooth and light like a feather. That's why you should get an 2003 Cadillac cts.

Seat warmers, great on gas, all leather dream ride.

2003 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sdn

I love my car what I like most is that the car will shut off and not allow itself to overheat and will shut down to cool off if there is a problem. The car rides smooth and is very lovely on the inside full leather. It also has seat warmers for them cold winter mornings, great on gas and it's just a all around great car.

My midnight blue car with woodgrain dash and security system

2003 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sdn

Great 4 door vehicle midnight blue has a dent on the side door but a nice sunroof. I got it for 2500 but I wouldn't trade it for the world. It has black alloy wheels and a super nice stereo system. 2.6l engine and barely needs work. The interior is sand brown with wood grain on the dash and steering wheel

- Jon J

The Cadillac cts is a great small family car.

2003 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sdn

This is a great driving car. The gas mileage on it is not that great around town, but highway mileage is pretty good. Very comfortable and plenty of backseat legroom. Fits 5 adults comfortably and 2 adults and three car seats. The maintenance is a little on the expensive side but parts last.

- Cody M

so interesting and does not take long to load and it does not spend a lot of gas

2003 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sdn

My car is nice and I love it. I love how I can drive it on the road, I feel comfortable and always I find it real. It does not spend more fuel so is going to be good in long distance travels. So I feel anyone beside me will like it so much and give it a try.
