For 11 yrs old still sounds and handles brand new. And that says a lot.

2008 Cadillac CTS AWD w/1SA

I really love my vehicle. It has more modern functions then most cars from that year. It lets me know when one of the tires are low and which one. It not only tells you engine problem with the light but actually tell you what the problem is. The car handles like a dream very smooth ride. No one believes it's 11 years old. I haven't had a single problem with the car. It is very comfortable to be in for long or short rides. The seats are heated for colder days. Air conditioning and heat everyone can control their own comfort. Stereo sounds awesome came with Bose speakers and has 5 disc CD player. I haven't had any problems at all with her. I am the second owner. And I did check car facts and she hasn't been in any accidents before I bought her. When I am ready for a new car I believe I will be buying another Cadillac. They are very dependable.

My Cadillac has been very reliable and I have been very happy with my choice.

2008 Cadillac CTS AWD w/1SA

I bought my car in 2012. I love the style of the car. I have had it for over 7 years now and it has been very reliable. I have only experienced a few issues with it. I have had to replace the battery once and the daytime headlights a few times. The only thing I do not love about this car is that is has a very rough ride when driving around town. It is very smooth on The freeway but very bumpy around town. I wish it had a smoother ride.

The car looks great it runs for 10 yrs, before repairs and runs another 10 yrs.

2008 Cadillac CTS AWD w/1SA

After 10 years there are a lot of costly repairs. If you get this car you should have about $5000 to repair it because once one thing breaks like the fuel tank then so does everything else. But it's a great looking car and runs well after it has a repair done to it.
