A little background on me. I am a 24 year old marketing professional, and also a bachelor. 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.
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.
Car looks great and nothing like it on the road. The ride on the CTS coupe is firm but not as bad as say a 3 series coupe. Power is so-so, cadillac needed a mid-point car between the normal cts coupe and the V coupe. Next car will be an ATS-V when they come out with it.
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.
