A great first Cadillac. A sporty design, smooth ride, amazing on gas.

2010 Cadillac CTS Luxury Sedan

It has a lovely design, looks sporty which is awesome. The traction control is amazing in the winter. It cuts right through the snow with little effort. Gas mileage is also very good. The interior has a very modern sleek look. As for a couple negatives the steering is pretty tight it isn't as easy to make fast turns. The sound system also could use an update. I have been in newer Cadillacs and there sound system has great bass and is so loud and clear. My vehicle has little to no base and the music seems a little quiet. I also would like a wireless Bluetooth connection for music. The car does have Bluetooth but it only works for phone calls.

My silver wagon with black leather.

2010 Cadillac CTS

For a Cadillac, as a young woman, I love it. I feel that it is powerful, it's a cute car and has a lot of character. I like that my car is not brand new but still has a new feel to it inside with black leather, an updated dash, black carpet and the fake carbon fiber look rather than the mahogany wood commonly found in them. The seats are comfortable and overall its very spacious in the back seat which is a plus. I am constantly getting compliments on my wagon which makes me like the car even more. The telescopic headlights are a cool touch that definitely turn heads.

My car is both luxurious and affordable. It makes a big statement when it's on the road, but since I bought it used, it was an economical choice for me.

2010 Cadillac CTS

I like how classy my vehicle looks; it has a custom grill on the front and attracts a lot of attention. I also like all the luxury features it has inside, like heated leather seats and built-in navigation. The only thing I can think of that I really dislike about it is how low to the ground it feels; it's sometimes tricky to go over speed bumps or even up/down my own driveway without having to angle the car so it doesn't "scrub" against the slope.
