Like our six. Very comfortable with a smooth ride. Handling is great. Sound system is very good. Air conditioning works great, vehicle cools very quickly. Have had no mechanical issues, just perform normally scheduled maintenance. V6 has plenty of power. Highway mileage is super. City mileage is not that good. I do average 19 to 20 mpg.

It's a small SUV that gets good gas mileage.

The blinkers keep shorting out and it takes about 2 hours to change the bulbs out. It's ridiculous. And because its a "luxury" vehicle I have to buy all parts at the GMC house. I will never buy a Cadillac again. I've spent approx. $300 this past year on just replacing the blinkers.

I bought my car used. I have had to put brakes on it but other then that, I have had no problems. I like the roominess it offers. The only drawback, it does not have third row seating. For the year, the mileage is ok. It had a very nice ride and has a lot of life left in it.

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.
