2008 Cadillac CTSDennis N - Woodstock, GA09/30/2015
After 120K miles, no breakdowns or mechanical problems of any kind. I can get up to 25 MPG on the highway, but average about 22 combined. It's a quiet and composed ride. It handles very well for a car of its size.
The car has started to use some oil, but it hasn't been much of a worry. The timing chain can rattle a bit at startup if the oil level is too low.
Most maintenance is very easy for DIY folks, especially oil changes. The only exception to this is for headlight bulb replacement. It's not a simple DIY job, but can be done in your garage if you've got some skills. Spark plugs look difficult, but should only take an hour if you know what you're doing.
This is the best performing and handling car I've ever owned. I was surprised when I watched all the reviews online of the CTS-V Sport and how incredibly it handled and performed on the track. 4.4 second 0-60 is stunning performance and will dust all these Mustang GT's out there. With all the tech, heads-up display, adjustable headlights, magnetic damping suspension, etc. there is no better car at this price.
Great great car
2008 Cadillac CTSJeffrey - West Palm Beach, FL08/26/2014
Stylish, comfortable, great visibility through rear windshield [other cars have rear head rests which block], wide side view mirrors, wonderful handling ability enhanced with AWD, mileage better than when websites predict, great displays on dash, sunroof with optional shade, seat heaters/coolers, trunk not large but not much smaller than the 2004 Deville I had, excellent acceleration with the 3.6L, maneuverable, parking much easier than that 04 Deville, easy access to radio/onstar/navigation controls, displays are prominent
When Cadillac first rolled out its CTS in 2003, the car’s combination of high performance and luxury features had everyone taking notice. It is now, as it was then, a mid-size sedan out to eat BMW’s and Audi’s lunches. The CTS targets both the enthusiast and luxury market at the same time.
There are cars that do the job, and there are cars that get the job done with style. The Cadillac CTS and Audi A6 are two examples of the latter. They’re the kind of cars you can treat yourself to as a reward for hard work, or perhaps as an indulgence. If you’re fortunate to shop for a car like this, it can be mighty hard to choose between the two. Here’s a CarMax comparison to help, whether you’re searching for a used Audi or a used Cadillac for sale.
Luxury cars come in all shapes and sizes, but they are all expected to look good and perform well. One advantage of buying a used luxury car is that you get the luxury look-and-feel that you want at a more affordable price.
