A wonderful automobile. I like to have something new every four years; just my thing. The XTS remains a great car; in fact, one of my sons wants to buy it from me and I would not have any problems selling it to him.

This is my 3rd Cadillac and is the best so far I don't know why everyone complains about the CUE yes it could react faster but it works great a little learning curve and away you go the ride is all Cadillac with great handling and stopping acceleration is a little sluggish at first hard hit of the throttle but after that it flies. I call it techno overload with all the features love the instrument cluster it is awesome.

Very Nice Ride

Warranty claims include the following: A/C - has been "fixed" 5 times HEATED SEATS - 2 times (once where they won't turn off, and now they just don't work) TIRE LEAKAGE - too many times to count. And, NO, not when it's only cold outside - ALWAYS SUNROOF - has dislodged twice and been repaired LIGHTS - Exterior failure REMOTE START - fail SHUT OFF ENGINE - fail Outside mirrors - fail GLOVEBOX - yes, even the glovebox. Drops out of its place and lands on floor (3X has been repaired) **** These are just a few warranty claims. There are others. In addition, the cue system sucks. Navigation sucks. Falls out of sync with phone. Have BEGGED dealership to take me out of lease. Not happening. I tell EVERYONE WHO WILL LISTEN to run from Cadillac... RUN!

After purchasing Toyotas for years we decided to buy American. We are very pleased with the luxury of the XTS. It is by far the most comfortable vehicle we have ever owned. This is a great car for "empty nesters" and receives plenty of compliments wherever we take it. We did not by the XTS for performance and although it does not have the horsepower to launch at intersections, I am pleasantly surprised at how well the XTS corners and steers. This introductory model had a couple recalls when we first bought it as I would expect any new model would have. Since then, the XTS has been wonderful. The four year bumper to bumper warranty is awesome. If you are in your middle age years and want to buy American then this vehicle is the one to buy. The CUE system took some time to get use to since I was used to knobs and buttons on all my previous cars. The voice recognition software works well for a truly hands free entertainment control. Load up your SD disk and insert it into the slot and you have all the music you ever need for a road trip. The best feature of all the electronic marvels this car has is the back up camera with motion prediction. This is awesome in parallel parking. Just put it in reverse, turn the steering wheel to line up your path and back into your spot. If you want American luxury at its best, convenience, and reliability (especially with the warranty) this is the car to purchase.

CUE the chorus, "We Love Our XTS VSport Platinum!"

The XTS VSport Platinum impresses everyone insight or it. It has the fuel economy on the highway(32.2 mpg, two way average for 6 hours each direction with cruise set at 65 mph), beautiful ride, but firm enough to throw it into a turn and the hydraulic steering holds the intended course. The power is phenomenal and always available when you need it. The amenities are the cherry on the cake, including the flawless CUE. Currently working on an ecu tune close to 550 lb-ft through it's AWD. The fiancé says, "it just goes!". ------- Not much new to report. A new set of 18" wheels with set of Pilot snow tires and shutting off the stability control has a new meaning on snow covered roads. The torque vectoring does wonders in rotating the VSport with the throttle on the white stuff. Over all, even with the lighter 18" wheels, the ride is stiff. The in-laws come out of 10-15 year old Toyota's with clapped out suspensions find the ride too sporty. But they find the rear heated seats inviting when they can figure out the touch screen controls. I'm thinking it needs more bark to match the 550+ lbs bite. So maybe a rear nmuffler upgrade.

Please see my email below. While I will never argue this is not a beautiful car, I must give it poor marks for reliability. For the third time, the rear suspension has collapsed. While my local service department is helpful and sympathetic, this is a defective car. I'm hoping Cadillac does the right thing and relieves me of the remaining months on my lease and takes the 2013 XTS Luxury edition back. Cadillac, please do the right thing.

Great Car!

Gosh I love this car! This is one of the best cars I have owned and I have owned everything from a Chevrolet, Honda, Nissan, Lexus, Mercedes, Volvo, BMW and so on. The overall style and ergonomics really fit what I was looking for and I looked at many cars to compare for this purchase from Lexus, Mercedes, BMW, Audi and Lincoln. I read all the reviews and while some I agree with and some i disagree with, that is why they make so many brands and models. As far as the CUE system, it took a little time to get the hang of it, but when you do it works great! Some critics say the car is under powered and they need to get a life, you want that much power, buy a sports car, this is luxury!

This car has a beautiful design inside and out. I have had problems. The car came without wheel locks which led to my rims being stolen 3 months into my lease. On two occasions the rear suspension has dropped, literally bottomed out. The local dealer was kind but not equipped with the training to deal this problem. Third time, they replaced rear compressor which seems to have done the trick. At 24,000 miles, one of the battery cables became completely corroded. Is technology taxing the battery too much? Great car on the road, but leaving someone stranded three times in less than 18 months won't win reliability points. I hope the kinks are out in 2014. Nothing rides like a Cadillac.

I have two Cadillac's a 2010 SRX cap gas tank and a 2013 XTS a cap less design and yet I can't fill them both up at the same gas station because the nozzle repeatedly clicks off. After I contacted the dealer, and GM TAC I was told that it's operating as designed. Dealer and GM smart guys say it's the station pump pressure and the vapor bellows on the nozzle and go to other gas stations .. real nice solution! Update: It's a nozzles issue. When I go to my local station (tested with the owner present) we noticed that two different pump nozzles resulted in two different results. A nozzle without the black rubber boot ... it clicked off .. a nozzle with the boot .. filled up fine ... since then all the nozzles have been changed at this station.... a learning experience for us both. I try to fill up only at my local station now, but those times when I have to use another and the boots not there .. it clicks off repeatedly. I try to avoid those odd named gas stations .. I use Shell gas.

I love to drive this car. It is just the right size to give comfort while being small enough to be able to maneuver. The vehicle is great. The CUE electronics are horrible, however. Why is it that some engineer decided that a sleek touch pad appearance trumped function? I have learned, after difficulty with the touch, that the system (like an Ipad) does not respond well to fingertip touch but instead needed a finger pad touch. Okay on an Ipad, but awkward at best while driving. Certain things, like climate control and radio controls, just are easier with knobs. Also, voice recognition is terrible. I was told the noise canceling system interferes.

Purchased new in Ohio while on vacation and drove back to Las Vegas. Averaged 28 MPG for the entire trip and was impressed with the long range comfort and handling. It won't burn off the 20" tires but lots more available acceleration than what was needed. All of the interior appointments are top quality and once you get used to the electronics, easy to adjust through the CUE system. After three months, had glove box closure issue and the dealer just replaced the entire mechanical and electronic component to repair.

purchased 2013 xts premium 500 miles ago, so far so good. inside all materials are of premium quality. cue system was a little tough, now very user friendly, very quiet and stable ride, and i feel it has plenty of power, i don't see where you would need more performance. it really gets up and goes, and am getting 28-30 mpg highway. have had many new vehicles in past 5 years, and this is as good or better than any hi line import vehicle including mercedes or audi. technology is far better than any, and the price for what it is, is a real bargain hands down. if you are looking for a great deal best car in the segment, drove all competitors.

This is the most uncomfortable full size Cadillac I have ever owned. The ride is stiff and hard and the seats are not comfortable. I owned four large Cadillacs previously which I really enjoyed. This new XTS is terrible. I will ever buy another Cadillac. Ergonomics need much improvement. The CUE system is cumbersome and you must take your eyes off the road too frequently.

after sitting for 4-6 days the battery goes completely dead. dealer says nothing wrong . after returning from a 7 day vacation the battery goes completely dead. I have no faith in this car and am afraid to park for a few days . the dealer charges the battery, I could do that. gm is still the leader in unreliability ,don't buy this car until they come up with a fix for the cue. I believe this is a lemon

I took delivery of my XTS Platinum FWD in Sapphire Blue Metallic on May 11. I must say that I become more pleased with the vehicle everyday. I have owned a Lexus LS, a Jaguar XJ and a Mercedes CLS and the XTS compares very favorably with each of those luxury vehicles. GM has finally met the challenge of the German and Japanese luxury vehicles with interior materials, fit and finish and technology second to none. I seriously evaluated 11 other cars and SUVs before this purchase and could not escape from the fact that dollar for dollar the XTS was the best value in its class. It is a pleasure to drive, performs beautifully and has that head-turning quotient.

9 trips back to the dealer since July. The cue system seams to have problems that GM doesn't have fixes for, they should have worked all the gremlins out of the system before releasing this car.

I have a very bad back so I always drive a big heavy car. The XTS has coach work 2nd to none. The problem is I've had the car back to the dealer nine times. Service is supposed to be available at your preferred dealer. But if you have a legitimate problem, and the dealer doesn't have a fix they will blow you off because you aren't going to give them a perfect survey. I'm currently on my 3rd dealer. Getting Cadillac involved doesn't help they tell you dealers can refuse service if they choose to. I bought my car in July, and to date the vehicle will unlock the doors at least 25% of the time. When you are trying to get out the power seats, and mirrors will start moving. No heat, at times. Bad

I like to wait until I have driven a new car for a thousand miles before I review it. I must say that this car is a dreamboat! It has been written about as the new definition of the American luxury car, and I think that that is apt. It is not an attempt at a European or Japanese clone. It's its own thing, and I like it a lot. It's big enough to feel luxurious but not so big it feels clunky on the road. It's great to drive. I traded my 2012 BMW X5 for this ( I hated the electronic shifter in the BMW) and before that I had a Lexus LS460. I like this Cadillac far better than either of these.

We bought the Platinum AWD in Diamond White. It's beautiful both inside and out. The safety features are awesome. The ride is wonderful. The CUE is absolutely fabulous. The XTS is truly a new chapter for Cadillac. This car will appeal to both the traditional Cadillac owner and the younger generation. All it needs is a V8.

We bought the platinum edition, liked the different grille and wheels. As the salesman was showing my wife how to operate all the features all of the sudden the radio went to full volume. The salesman tried to turn it down but as soon as he removed his finger from the button it would return to full volume. They said it needed a software update and took it to the shop. An hour later he returned and proceeded with the demonstration and it did it again, not only did the volume increase on its own you can't turn it off. Well today it is making its 3rd trip back for the same issue plus some other electronic problems such as the seat memory won't work, Bluetooth connection is often lost and so on.

Purchased a White Diamond exterior with Carmel/Black interior Premium FWD XTS in July after considering a BMW or Mercedes. After 3,300 miles in it, the more I drive it the more I love it. Outstanding ride quality and interior finish is top notch. So glad Cadillac did not abandon the smooth ride to chase the BMW/Mercedes performance (extremely hard ride) model. This car provides a perfect blend of cushion & performance handling. Big car ride with midsize handling. The spirited V6 provides excellent power while returning great gas mileage. CUE system definitely requires a dedicated learning period to familiarize yourself with the many features.

I recently purchased the new Cadillac XTS and was completely thrilled!!, I had been waiting for the release of this vehicle for quite some time now and was glad to see it was finally released. I had been working through one of Cadillac’s finest representatives (Mr. Chris Ferren at Crestview Cadillac), who had been working on this vehicle with me for several months, Chris was very diligent in keeping me posted on the XTS and periodically sent me supportive media to help me make my final decision. Finally, Chris actually brought the vehicle to my residence (can you believe that!) we then finished the paperwork and spent several hours going through the details of the XTS such that I could get completely familiar with all the new gadgets. Chris is an excellent person to work with and I highly recommend him to anyone that is in the market to purchase a new Cadillac, regardless of the make or model, he’ll definitely do a great job for you.
