Not your Grandfathers Cadillac

As close to a Cadillac sports car as you get without going to the expense of the "V" series., Very distinctive styling but lacking in trunk space. Averaging 19 mpg around town and I find that acceptable for the performance and handling it has.


  • Ride and Handling: Cadillac ride with sports car handling
  • Power: More than adequate.
  • Styling: Distinctive and modern. A head turner!


  • Interior Space: Low slung seating takes some getting used to.
  • Cargo Space: Deceptive as the hinges make useable space VERY much a premium.
  • Visibility: Poor side/rear visibility due to the C pillar.

Too many issues

This 2013 has too many issues... problems I can’t live with. Seats and ride are not comfortable. Transmission clunks and hesitates when downshifting. Lots of suspension noises. Not as quiet an interior than our 2004 CTS


  • Styling:
  • Power:


  • Ride and Handling: Much rougher ride than my 2004
  • Seat Comfort: Terrible seats. Our 2004 has plush wraparound seats. This one is a bench seat with no comfort

2013 Cadillac CTS WAGON base model 3.0

Ride and Handling Cadillac ride with sports car handling in a station wagon! Wish Cadillac would put this wagon back on the assembly line! This is Cadillac’s best looking car. In 40 years, anyway. Cargo area is spacious.


  • Ride and Handling: Smooth ride & handles great as you would expect a Cadillac should.
  • Power: Even the base model 3.0 accelerates well in traffic.
  • Cargo Space: Because it is a wagon, it has roomy cargo space.


  • Fuel Economy: low end of fuel economy spectrum
  • Visibility: The rear window deck sits high, causing bad visibility and Poor side/rear visibility due to the C pillar.
  • Styling: Low slung seating takes some getting used to.
