    Transmission: Automatic Color: Gray Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.286 (21 reviews) "I purchased this Cadillac CTS with less that 7,000 miles on it. So far I can share mixed reviews. I traded in a 2009 Lincoln MKS with 50,000 miles on it and this review will mostly compare the 2. The good: It's ride is especially smooth, especially cornering. The suspension feels tighter, less vibration from the road. I think it looks nicer, however that is subjective. The premium sound compares well with the premium Lincoln sound system. The Cadillac Warranty (completely transferable) covers the power train (Motor and transmission) for 100,000 ,miles and covers bumper to bumper for 4 years 50,000 miles. Lincoln covered 4 years 48,000 bumper to bumper and no extension for motor, transmission. Services- Cadillac covers normal services- oil changes, tire rotation and balancing while the care is under the bumper to bumper warrant at no cost. Neutral: I have not had any mechanical issues with either car, except for a power window issue. The not so good: The estimated MPG is a high estimation. I averaged 2 full MPG more with the Lincoln MKS than I do with this car over the same roads and conditions. This car is smaller, and there is less room in this car. Adding after market pop up navigation is not recommended as it is price prohibitive (I was told over $4000 because of codes and errors). If you want built in navigation, make sure the model you are buying has it. The paint on the Lincoln help up against scratches better, the Cadillac scratches easily."

I got a great job out of school, and wanted a car to reflect my personality. If you live where I live in Southern California, every other car on the road is a BMW, or a Mercedes. I wanted something professional, fast, and that separated me from the heard so to speak. The V is perfect. You can pretty much smoke any car on the road, looks professional, and does not draw a lot of police attention. If you have some money to blow, and don't care about gas mileage. Just get this car! Not a bad thing to say."

I can say that all of the research was correct and then some. This is not my first luxury or high performance car but it is my first Cadillac and I have to say I am impressed. The car is much better looking, has a much nicer and more comfortable interior and it performs even better than I thought it would. I always take the articles in magazines with a grain of salt and have been disappointed more than once but I have to say this one exceeded my expectations. The only drawback that I have found thus far is the small fuel tank. It is probably designed for the 3.6 liter V6 but is inadequate for the V. Otherwise I love this thing!"

CTS 2012 coupe

2012 Cadillac CTS Cadillac Man - , 07/19/2013

I really don't like to write reviews. In opinion they fixed and cheeze. Here is my 2 cents. For 20 years I was a Fan of big cars. Escalate ESV,EXT.... Hauling kids arounds and their friends. I'm 45 years old 6'4". I have been looking for a car that I could feel comfortable yet I didn't want to look like that guy In Florida with the virtual reality glasses. Ya the one that is standing in line for early bird special. This car is winner all away around. Gadgets galore. Unbelievable handling. Great gas mileage. I used pay $80 to $100 a week in gas. Now I spend $50 every two week. Driving same distance. Savings around $300 bucks a month. Yes, I know what you are thinking that's impossible. Better believe it. I highly recommend this car. This review is for Cadilac CTS coupe V 6. Charlotte, NC.

2012 Cadillac CTS Overview

The Cadillac CTS is an entry-level luxury sport sedan that offers a great driving experience. It also has a wide variety of customization options, including three body styles, two engine types, and both rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. With a variety of trim options and feature packages, it will be easy to find a 2012 Cadillac CTS that fits your own style and taste.

2012 Cadillac CTS History

The CTS was tweaked only slightly in the 2012 edition. Cadillac added a bit of depth to the CTS by integrating a more vertical design for the front grille, and subtly changed the Cadillac logo.

  • The 2012 Cadillac CTS is a part of the second generation of the lineup.
  • The first generation of Cadillac CTS vehicles was introduced in 2003.

How It Drives

Though the Cadillac CTS has many configuration options and combinations, some of its traits are universal. Specifically, it has crisp steering. Ride quality feels precise and easy to control. Though it has many features, it never feels busy or stretched thin. All engine options make for a nimble ride, and the car is plenty fuel efficient.

Used 2012 Cadillac CTS Value

The Cadillac CTS is full of surprises - the second-generation CTS is able to compete with the likes of the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Audi A4, and other entry-level sports sedans. It may actually be the most unique and attractive of the lot - it's recognizable for its sharp features and graceful shape. It is equipped with features ahead of its class and a top-notch interior. With its dynamic style and comfortable ride, it's clear that Cadillac stuffed the 2012 CTS with a lot of value. The body styles and other configuration options ensure the lineup has many combinations to fit a specific driver's style.

Design & Performance

The second-generation Cadillac CTS has an attractive design that looks notably distinct on the road with unmistakably sharp features and details. Additionally, the 2012 CTS is fairly easy to customize toward your tastes. You have two engine options, a choice of manual or automatic transmission, three body styles, and all-wheel drive to swap in.

The second-generation Cadillac CTS comes in four trim levels:

  • The Cadillac CTS Base
  • The Cadillac CTS Luxury
  • The Cadillac CTS Performance
  • The Cadillac CTS Premium

Not a brand to waste time on titles, each trim level name mimics the features available to it.

Powertrain & Engine

The CTS has two engine options: the 3.0L V6 and the 3.6L V6. While the former is cheaper and overall brisk enough, the latter is much more powerful and much faster. Both feel sporty and quick, but the 3.6L V6 also has more horsepower, ensuring acceleration is no issue. Each can be paired with either manual transmission or paddle-shifted automatic transmissions. The six-speed manual is mostly offered on base-level sedans and coupes, though the automatic is likely to be a better fit for anyone interested in driving a sports car. All trim levels and body styles have access to all-wheel drive as a swap-in.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

The Cadillac CTS has a graceful shape with many distinctive features. Its details are memorable, with upswept headlamps, bladelike fenders, and lack of chrome. It may be held back by the lack of space in the car; the cabin is comfortable, just a little snug.

  • The leather upholstery could be improved, especially compared to the other cars in its class.
  • The entertainment system has a hard drive for music storage.
  • Bluetooth connectivity is standard for all trim levels.
  • Almost all of its technology and audio features have upgrades available.

The Cadillac CTS also has coupe and wagon models available.
