/the styling is outstanding, but the ride is noisy and rough. There is a lot of engine and road noise and a tremendous transmission of road roughness to the passenger compartment. The interior is cheap looking--lots of plastic and short on "luxury" features.
The Red Cadillac CTS
2010 Cadillac CTSBD - Tinley Park, Illinois03/13/2012
This car is fun to drive and nice to be seen in. The accessories work well and easy to use. Examples are the cruise control located on the steering wheel...and it works! You can change speeds one mile per hour at a time. The radio system works well and supports AUX input for the iPhone's music.
Engine and transmission work as they should, smooth and powerful. The ride is a little harsh, but it instills confidence in handling. Having driven a 2007 CTS, I do appreciate 4WD. I would recommend getting this option if at all possible. The old CTS was very skittish in wet and icy weather.
The ride in the 2010 is much quieter and smoother than the older model, a definite improvement.
I get reasonable mileage: around 28 mpg at 65 on level road, and in middle teens in the city.

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.
