2012 Cadillac CTS Expert Review
Cadillac cts: sporty stylish American luxury.
My 2012 Cadillac cts is classic and stylish, sporty and luxurious without being ostentatious. It drives like a dream and is very comfortable. I love the supportive, bolstered leather seats. If you like plush, cushy seats, this is not the car for you. Do not get me wrong, the seats are very comfortable. I needed the support and this fit the bill. The premium model has many creature comforts. I am kicking myself for forgetting the air cooled seats during this recent summer! What a cool feature! I love that I can just get in and go since there is a key fob and everything is set it and forget it. Power seats that remember your positioning, automatic lights and windshield wipers. Like I said, I just get in and go. Then I park and go about my business. I never have to hunt for my keys in my purse. Love it! The cts 3. 6 has a lot of power, I recommend that over the lower level luxury model. I never want for power entering the highway or taking off. I hit the gas and go! I have no fear. You can use premium or regular gas; she'll run on either with pretty much imperceptible impact to performance. Of course premium is best, but you will not miss much if you do not use it all the time. Just add it once in a while. Baby loves to roar and she does seem to perform a tiny bit better on premium. She's not a gas guzzler but she's no lightweight either. Mileage is somewhere around 25-26 mpg highway. The cts has been amazingly reliable. I bought mine used with less than 25k miles on it. Best car purchase ever! I highly recommend it!
My car is a 4 door Cadillac. Year 2012. It is a six cylinder vehicle.
The seats are not as comfortable as other Cadillac's I have owned. There is too much road noise. I have never had road noise in a Cadillac. I can not see out of it very well. There are too many blind spots. The car handles very well and responds to command very well. I am not satisfied with the gas mileage. I only get 14. 6 miles per gallon. This is a six cylinder car. I realize it is a larger car but still think I should get better mileage. For a luxury car it is too low to the ground. It is also hard to get in and out of. I do like the look of the car. I love the sleek look of the back end.
You can set the lights on auto.
It drives really good on the highway but if anything goes wrong with the car the parts and labor are expensive!! It's not all that bad on gas either but we use it everyday because it's our only vehicle. It's got heated seats and you can even set the driver's seat the drivers side mirror and your favorite radio station with the push of a button! It's definitely not a car you want to cruise around in. Its fast! Faster than I expected!
