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.

Comfortable, classy and love the colors inside and out.

I have had no problems with my car but have only had it for about 6 months. It handles and drives great. I have heated seats they are great and also the heated steering wheel which I didn't even think I would like and now love. It is extremely comfortable and has automatic adjustable seats that me and husband love. Also has the lumbar which is great because I take long 2 hour trips to pick my grandson up from his college about once a month and this seats make it bearable because I have a bad back. The gas mileage is okay but it wish it was better does not get as good as I would like on the expressway but gets better than I thought in the city stop and go driving.

Easy and comfortable driving.

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.
