GREAT CAR

THE VEHICLE IS THE TYPE OF CAR FOR MY LIFESTYLE, HOWEVER, I AM CONSIDERING TO TRADE IT IN FOR A 4 DOOR.

Pros

  • Power: THE POWER FOR ACCELERATION
  • Dashboard: ABLE TO SEE ALL THAT IS INCLUDED IN THE VEHICLE
  • Braking: IT STOPS WHEN IT IS EXPECTED

Cons

  • Cabin Noise: OUTSIDE NOISE IS HEARD
  • Interior Space: ONLY ENOUGH SPACE FOR 2 PEOPLE
  • Seat Comfort: DUE TO THE PRIOR USAGE OF THE VEHICLE, THE SEATS ARE NOT AS COMFORTABLE AS EXPECTED

- RENNELL KNOX, 2012 Cadillac CTS

Wonderful car at great price!

The car drives and feels like the luxury car it is. Every aspect is top notch: the comfort, the handling, the features, etc. One whiny complaint: the features are high tech, but the owner manual is terrible - very confusing.

Pros

  • Weather Versatility: The 4WD is a dream in bad weather.
  • Technology and Entertainment: Awesome sound system! though it took a while to figure out how to play music from my iPhone (missing an adapter that would normally come with a new car and obviously not with a used car - and was a bit of a nuisance to locate, but worth it in the end!)

Cons

  • Fuel Economy: Fuel economy is terrible - even road-trip highway driving it doesn't get above 20 mph.
  • Cost to Maintain: An oil change is $65 because of the special oil it uses. Tires are $250. But it is a luxury car, so it goes with the territory.

Obsolete infotainment

Infotainment software cannot be upgraded.

Pros

  • Styling:

Cons

  • Technology and Entertainment: Software is not upgradable making the maps obsolete. Phone operation is very limited and wonky with no other bluetooth capabilities.
