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!

2013 cts coupe. Looks great but does not handle well.

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.

Unique cts wagon. Roomy and stylish.

I love my 2013 cts wagon, handles just like the cts sedan/coupe. Roomy but also not hard to park/get around. It is all wheel drive so sometimes when making sharp turns the wheels will "chatter" if you will but have been told it is a common issue and does not hurt anything. Stylish but roomy and you do not see them everywhere.

- Amanda B

Looks great but underpowered for its size.

Overall I am very happy with my Cadillac cts performance sedan. The look is stunning and the feel of the vehicle on the road is exceptional in the turns. There are only two things I feel are lacking. First, I feel it is underpowered with a 6 cylinder engine for the weight of the car. Second, the suspension is a little rough.

2013 Cadillac cts review for people on the fence.

Nearing 50, 000 miles and zero issues whatsoever. Performs great in all weather conditions & all seasons. Extremely reliable and quite a large interior compared to other cars in its class. I would highly recommend this vehicle to anyone that is looking to purchase a used vehicle.

Best caddy in the world too drive. It is very smooth to drive.

I have never had any problems with my Cadillac SUV. It is very easy to drive. There is plenty of legroom. You can haul anything in. The keyless entry is the best. The radio is very nice with plenty of speakers. It lets you know when theres a car beside you.

- Pam C

I love the smooth ride in the car!

Great car! I have no real problems with it! I change the oil, tune ups and have changed tires. No other real issues to deal with. I plan to only buy Cadillacs and may be in the market for another one at some point next year! Cadillacs are great cars!

- Joe E

Extended warranty came in handy.

I have had my car for almost two years now and the only major issue was needing a new transmission due to something within the transmission leaking and corrupting the whole thing. I also had the dashboard go completely black due to needing an update.

- Amber W

I would have to say the most important thing people should know that my cadillac is just as good if not better in all respects than a comparable luxury import like BMW or Mercedes, and definitely superior to any Japanese made automobile

It is technologically advanced for the model year. It has excellent road manners, plenty of power, and excellent agility. It is very attractive - I love the styling. And lastly I am a big man so it is just the right size for my needs .

- Bob W

My car is black with a diamond tricoat and I pay to much for it, wrecked it 2 times

My car has had tire problems and burning through them. I also have a leak in my steering fluid so I'm always putting fluid in it. I honestly can't stand this car because I feel it has a lot of maintenance and it's still low Miles

- Nicolette M

Very comfortable & reliable.

The cts coupe has an awesome & unique exterior styling. In both the winter & summer, I really enjoy the heated & ventilated seats. I find the engine very powerful. I find the cts to be quite reliable with no mechanical issues.

- David M

It really saves on gas 25 dollars and the tank is full for three days maybe four.

I have a very nice blue car. It is a very good car. It saves gas a lot. The car also has very low mileage. There are no burn marks on the seats. Ac and heat work wonderful. Brand new motor and brake pads.

- Shay C

The Cadillac CTS is a sporty 4 door sedan.

The Cadillac CTS is a very sporty looking sedan, and is very reliable. It has surprising power for a v6 engine and has very good handling. Lots of legroom in the backseat.

Love my Cadillac best smooth drive ever had.

Best car ever drove. Smooth drive love all features. Tires are expensive to replace and must buy better tires or drives with a bumping sound if not all tires same make.

Cadillac CTS Aint Bad for the Money.

Great pick up. Solidly built. Seats do not fold down which is a bummer. Ample trunk space. Not big enough for large or tall people. Great stereo.
