Cadillac was once the "Standard of the World," which was more than an advertising slogan. The competition is much deeper, wider and stronger today, but if you would like an unassailable ...

It is as smooth as glass I love it.

I own a 2008 Cadillac cts v6 direct-injection. I love my car I has 130 thousand miles on it never had a problem. Interesting enough this is the only car I have owned that you do not have to rotate the tires they all wear the same always. Only parts I had to buy for is driver's and passenger disc brake rotors. And driver's side door lock solenoid. I have never had any other problems. Oh and a tune-up spark plugs air filter that is it. When I purchase the vehicle had 78000 miles on it.

Great car to drive and very reliable. Also looks cool.

There has been very few problems with my car. It is a very comfortable drive and can handle long distances whether its 2 hours or 21 hours. The car runs smoothly with only a few minor issues. The timing chain wore down and needed to be fixed which was very pricy. I also would prefer a car with more leg room for the backseat since passengers are usually squished. Huge trunk though. Very slick car to drive.

Caddy review great car for the past 10 years.

It is a good car have not really had any problems with it except for leaking in trunk and interior, I also do not like that you have to open trunk through the back seat, if you have stuff or a person is sitting there then you have to move everything thing in order to pull the seat down and pull the clasp to open it up, but other than that there have been 0 problems in 10 years.
