Cadillac does not disappoint.

I absolutely love the Cadillac xt5. The reliability has been great, and the only performance issues I have had in the first year are related to the tires. I am not a fan of the white and grey interior. I thought I would prefer it to the darker interior, but I was wrong. In my opinion, one of my biggest issues with the Cadillacs is the upgraded technology each year. I would like to be able to upgrade my car's technology software much like we upgrade our computer platforms each year. It is unfair to think that someone could trade in a vehicle every year, but you would have to in order to take advantage of these upgrades. I also really like the switch from the srx to the xt5. I prefer the shorter nose and wheel base to the srx, although I have noticed a slightly less powerful engine in this one.

So far no problems, very comfortable even on very long drives - seats are easy to adjust with many different settings, lots of room for lugging stuff - was great for camping, great pick up on hills and the highway, lots of safety features that make me feel I have an extra pair of eyes, the in car GPS can be a little tricky at times but is great once it is set, the voice commands are sometimes a bit difficult - it does not always understand what is being said so it wants to give you something completely different, and the mpg has been better than expected pretty much 20. 9 city and 36 highway.

I have really enjoyed driving the xt5, it's a very comfortable vehicle with great safety features. My dash always had a display of current tire pressure, oil life, avg. Mpg information. It's nice to always have the oil life in particular displayed plain and clear. Another great feature is a red light accompanied by a jolt in the actual driver seat to notify driver if the car in front of you has suddenly put on their brakes! Another feature that is nice is the car is Wi-Fi enabled, so long trips with kids is a breeze; put a movie on a tablet and you're on your way no complaints!
