Honest review of a Cadillac cts from a current owner.

I love it. It's a beautiful car. It is a very comfortable and very reliable ride. I get compliments all the time. The performance is great it's pretty decent on mileage. The only issue with the design is the windshield frame slants in such a way that it could create a blind spot when trying to make left or right hand turns. The size of the vehicle is also not conducive for a large family or hauling more than 4 large grocery bags in the trunk. (ok I am exaggerating a bit but the point is, its not designed to fit a lot of bags and boxes). The features are top of the line with the back up camera, Bluetooth, Bose speakers, navigation, heated seats, dual ac and heating. It's a very good car and I will definitely recommend this vehicle!

I love the look of the car. There’s nothing on the road that looks like it for the price. It is very sporty and nice. The interior is very comfortable. This car makes terrible U-turns and I have had many mechanical issues with it. I have had two oil leaks and for some reason I have to have the breaks worked on every few months.

Recall Oct 1, 2014
Report Receipt Date:
Oct 1, 2014
NHTSA Campaign:
14V614000
Summary:
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 Cadillac CTS, Escalade, Escalade ESV, Chevrolet Suburban, Tahoe, GMC Yukon, and Yukon XL, and 2014 Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Express, Impala, Silverado HD, Traverse, GMC Acadia, Savana, and Sierra HD vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the chassis electronic module may be internally contaminated, resulting in an electrical short.
Consequence:
If the module experiences an electrical short, the vehicle could stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the chassis electronic module, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact GM customer service at 1-800-521-7300 (Buick), 1-800-458-8006 (Cadillac), 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet), and 1-800-462-8782 (GMC). GM's number for this recall is 14515.

Recall Jul 2, 2014
Report Receipt Date:
Jul 2, 2014
NHTSA Campaign:
14V394000
Summary:
This defect can affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. General Motors LLC (GM) notified the agency on July 2, 2014 that they are recalling 554,328 model year 2003-2014 Cadillac CTS vehicles manufactured August 16, 2001, to April 28, 2014, and 2004-2006 Cadillac SRX vehicles manufactured March 20, 2003, to August 11, 2006. In these models, the weight on the key ring and/or road conditions or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine.
Consequence:
If the key is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy if the vehicle is involved in a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Remedy:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will provide two replacement key rings, and vehicles with slotted keys will receive key inserts, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006. GM's number for this recall is 14172.
