When this car gets over 75,000 miles there is a 50 percent chance that the headgaskets will fail and need replacement. 741 coce on the transmission, that is an intermittent or stuck off position of the shift selnoid in the transmission. $ 20.00 part $ 2000 dollar job. 171 and 174 codes . 174 most likely will be an intack leak after the throttle body. You will need to get a gasket set and replace the throttle body coupler as well. Cheap but labor intensive. You have to remove the plenum for the gaskets first taking off the Fuel rail etc etc. When you do this you will see were your starter is located. After 100,000 miles or 150, stretching it you will have to replace the double plat plugs. Front is ok to to do , the back by the firewall could be a pain in the butt. While your at it change the coils if you could afford it. You may start to develop oil leaks . Many of the O rings around the sensors dry up and start to leak slightly. The oil filter adapter leaks on these cars, usually needing a new gasket or possible new adapter and gasket. While u have that off, u might as well change the crankshaft sensors located in a tough spot right above the oil filter adapter using new o rings to stop those little oil leaks that are starting at this mileage. Also changing the crankshaft position sensors will assure you that they wont fail and leave you stranded without notice. Piece of mind. The cars are just heavey maintenance. im a mechanic that changes the oil regualrly using good sythetic oil and filter. I use my caddy, but it could be a pain in the u know what. the parts are made realy light of aluminum and these days they are not even madein the states. Many now are made in asian countries and many mechanics will tell you they are having problems with the quality and reliability of the electronic sensors etc. Even a/c delco is stamped made in China etc. Timkin Hub bearings are now made in Korea. Not bad but the old american made lasted longer. Just be ware what is going on in this industry. Be cafeful. It's not just Cadillac it's all of them. Make them cheap and light and sell them for high profit. Be well everyone good luck. Write to Gm in Detroit and tell them to make their cars here parts here putting American men and women back to work.

First of all there is more than one trim level and engine option. I have the top trim level one with the upgraded 3.6 L and the gold emblem package. Love every thing about the car I have bought other cars since this one but love it so much I kept it and still use it. Here 9 years later and about 180,000 miles she is still running strong and fun as hell to drive. I remember when I first test drove it I was in disbelief it was a caddy. I remember the devilles, sevilles, and fleetwoods, big floaty land yachts, but this is small and sporty, something I used to think wasn't in Cadillacs vocabulary.

Bought the '04 CTS Sport used in June '09. Had 86k at the time. Fun car to drive. Great performance. So far had to replace the water pump, and throttle body at about a $700 a clip. Seems to go thru tires pretty quick too. Put a new set on about 12k ago and they won't last until next inspection April '12. Overall, got a great deal on this car. Paid about $11k. Still can't believe I paid that amount for such a sweet ride. Very reliable. Have taken on long road trips and love the performance.

I purchased a new 04 cts which was my 15th new auto. It came from a Stephen King flick i think. Everything was changed out on it but the paint job and it had to be redone. I never had a car that had the instrument panel replaced before. I gave GM so much trouble they even made a monthly payment for me. Cadillac is the most overpriced car made. I would not buy another Cad at ANY PRICE. I don't have time for the problems. The dealer kept it more than i did. After 40,000 I finally justified getting rid of my problem. I traded the car from HELL. It actually made it to the new car dealer that i traded it to.

It's very fun to drive, and fast for a V6. Looks great and turns heads. Great interior. However it gets terrible mileage for a V6. I get 24 on highway if I'm lucky. It burns about a quart every 1000 miles! It is worthless in snow and ice. My transmission went out at 95,000 miles. $5000 for a new one installed at the dealership. When I step on my brakes the car shimmies and shakes back and forth. Had to replace a brake caliper at 75,000 miles $850! Basically it's a unreliable gas/oil burning expensive piece of crap that I can only use half of the year if the transmission wasn't broken! Spare yourself a headache and steer clear! Its looks ARE deceiving!

Rear Shocks went at 37K, Wheel hub bearing at 50K (900 USD to replace), timing chain at 43K (1800 usd), airflow sensor @ 62K (450 usd), uses 1quart of oil per 1000 miles. This american luxury did not impress me. No wonder consumerreports rates it at "below average". GM: please wake up

The CTS does not enjoy slippery conditions. Not a car to drive in Maine. While a great fun car to drive, it is a very expensive car to maintain. Tires will last about 24,000 miles, and don't hit a bump or you'll blow out a $650 rim. We did have significant electronic problems, which may have been due to dealer incompetence.

I've had this car for about 2 and a half months and this is absolutely amazing. I have the 3.6 L engine and acceleration is great and handling is also quite sharp, not to mention the turning radius on the car is one of the best out there. This car is super smooth at fast highway speeds and is a good looking car. When you compare it to other European cars in its class, this is hands down the best bang for the buck. This sure isn't just an old man's Cadillac. I'm in college and I love it. This is proof that Americans can make superb quality cars. The newer generation models look 10 times as amazing. The CTS is definitely the greatest American car on the market today.

So excited to buy my first Cadillac. Certified pre-owned and have had regular oil changes. Manual says nothing about replacing this chain for the 3.6 engine, but does so for the 3.1. Just out of warranty, and paid off early. Chain broke with no warning whatsoever. Research and mechanics have said this should not have happened at this mileage. In the shop right now and we're up to $2100 and counting. Anyone else had a problem with timing chain? It's just wrong! Dealer is not wanting to make any adjustments, passing me off to corporate office.....very unhappy with my decision to purchase this american car. Between brake and shock problems, it's a regret.

I have had my CTS for two years, and had read several reviews before my purchase. I saw that there were several complaints about the batteries dying on this vehicle. I also had this problem, not because of a faulty wiring system like many of the reviews said, but because of the bose sound system. When i bought the car i knew bose made a cheap product and expected this to happen, due to the lack of a remote wire on their amp. I replaced the amp and speakers (the bose speakers are made of cardboard) with a better product and it fixed the issue. This car has great handling and plenty of power.

Wife crashed the toyota 4runner and my Honda S2000 was stolen off the drivway. So I decided to go with some class and give GM back a chance... WRONG CHOICE!!! The CTS 3.6L with Navi and 17" wheels was a good try for GM but this car still does not compare. Quality is poor as paint interior on knobs are chipping everywhere and my side skirt is loose, memory settings get messed up on the sideview mirrors. There are recalls on the CTS with the steering linkages. My alignment needs to be redone every year so far and now it is acting up with suspension noises. Brand new these cars are great, right up until you add some mileage on them. Overall,still fun to drive while looking good doing it

It handles great in dry conditions, but not in snow, which is miserable. Fuel economy is disappointing for a V6 with VVT. The transmission makes a whinning noise, and the car is known to have issues with trannies. Comfortable, stylish, and fun, but not quality, reliable, or practical. Overall a decent value IF you get it at a cheap price, but I'll never buy another caddy again- HIGH maintenance costs, and not great quality. Get an Acura- 10x the quality for about the same price. Do not even consider if you drive in winter conditions.

After shopping used CTS's for about 1 year- I finally purchased a Pearl 04' CTS (w/black leather). The reviews have been great on this vehicle and the craftsmanship is extraordinary. I bought my Caddy with 60K on it but paid about 4K under blue book. So far, so good. I previously drove a Jeep Wrangler so this is an entirely different experience.

I love driving this car. When purchasing I opted for the 3.6 liter engine, in part, because it has timing chains that are supposed to survive the life of the car, as opposed to the 3.2 which the owner's manual suggests replacing at 100k miles. The owners manual even states that if you don't replace the timing belt on the 3.2 liter you risk severe engine damage. Well the timing chain broke on my 3.6 CTS at 70K miles and the dealership estimates that the repair costs will be about $2500. Dealership also told me they had another 3.6 CTS in at the same time, for the same problem.

This car is fun to drive, with the 5 speed manual and the 3.2 liter dohc v6 makes a fair amount of power. The interior is comfortable but is a little boring and kind of cheaply made. I am very disappointed with the stabilatrack which has gone haywire on me after 45000 miles and a rattle coming from the engine somewhere, after about 30,000 miles. other than that the car is wonderful, turns on a dime, good acceleration, handles good, and brakes good.

I bought this car to replace my 2004 Acura TL that got totaled, and the Caddy really leaves you with a better impression. It drives very much like a Mercedes E-class; very solid and confident. The torquey 3.6 L engine accelerates with ease, never feels stressed, and is perfect for hour-plus highway trips, if not for the less- than-stellar fuel economy (at least it takes regular gas). The dash design is a bit homely, to be honest, but the interior is otherwise very pleasant and the seats are really comfortable (although at first it was tricky adjusting it to a comfy position). Polished metal plates on the door sills would be nice, like in other luxury cars.

2004 CTS was purchased new. After 3 years, has been a great car. Love the OnStar, mileage, looks. No problems. After my '85 Caddy disaster, thought I would never buy another Caddy. Just bought a new STS last week. Most reviews are after a few weeks of ownership. After 3 years with the CTS, I bought the STS and my wife still drives the CTS. That speaks volumes.

The CTS is attractive, but the engine seems strained at times while accelerating. I have been frustrated with several recalls and other parts that wore out, like the starter. I have also had defective memory seating that is supposed to remember your previous setting. That had to be replaced. I did not find the dealership to be attentive to my service requests and had to make several trips for the same complaint to be repaired. The back seat is tight in leg room and should definitely be larger. I traded in a BMW 740iLl to buy this car and will be going back to another BMW. The CTS doesn't hold a candle to the BMW 7-Series.

I'm retired. Other than local driving, I take long trips with one or no passengers. My CTS's sport suspension, Stabilitrack, traction control, 17" Wheels, etc. make it handle great on Interstates and secondary roads. The seats allow comfort for 8 - 10 hours behind the wheel. I drive from Prescott, Arizona to both Southern and Northern California often. I have enjoyed separate drives to: the Canadian Rockies, Branson MO, Durango and Salida CO, Washington, D.C., Roswell NM, and Tombstone, AZ. I have installed a dashboard mounted GPS Navigation Unit that has proven invaluable. The fold-down rear seat-backs allow me to carry my Mountain Bike to nearby bike trails. It does what I want it to!

I was warned about buying a Cadilac but I read so much about what GM had done recently and that the plant that the car is built in had won numerous awards when competting with all the manufacturers so I bought American! Well, I can not be more happy. I have let friends with BMWs and other cars drive it and all you have to do is look at thier faces after they get out of the car. They know what I now know.

Obviously, most positive reviews are looks and fun. It does look good, but is only fun in optimal driving conditions. If sliding (from a stop at slow acceleration) on slightly wet pavement is is fun, it's fun. I've driven in Illinois winters for sixteen years; this is the only car I've ever slid off the road in. Interior looks good for awhile, but black finish on control buttons has chipped off. Interior lights dim off and on, and the cruise control has been disengaging--it only has 18,000 miles on the car. To this date, it has had three recalls. Don't waste money on a tired name when there are car quality companies producing luxury vehicles built with the driver in mind.

Think twice before purchasing a 2004 Cadillac CTS. Due the fact that front and rear tire sizes vary, it is not possible to rotate the tires. Consequently, the tires will feather (cup) and produce an irritating, noisey ride. According to several tire dealers, plan on replacing tires after approximately 15,000 miles. I would seriously question any rave reviews on the fun aspect of driving this vehicle, or any vehicle, whose tires remain in place without proper periodic rotation.

The Cadillac CTS with both the luxury and sport packages is a very cool and fun car to drive. You have more quick acceleration than you need and with the addition of chrome wheels and a spoiler...you have the looks. The CTS does not have the real soft ride of the DeVille, but the DVville cannot turn on a dime nor accelerate like the CTS can.

I posted about my Cadillac CTS back in early 2005. I raved about this car. I loved it. Until October 2005 a seal broke in the trunk and it took all of the 3 inches of rain from the sky into my interior. Everything was totaled inside. Since then Caddy installed a new interior. Every week I get a new rattle along with panels falling off the interior. It sounds like a Yellow school bus when you drive it. I reached out to service reps and GM in Detroit. All on deaf ears. As long I pay GMAC nobody cares. I strongly recommend you choose wisely. For the first time in my life after 25 years of driving Cadillac, I have to try other waters (foreign). What a shame!

The 2004 Cadillac CTS is a blast to drive. Its turning radius and power gives you a sense of dominance. It seems to turn heads with its short but big reputation. The big brother V doesn't hurt. One hundred thirty MPH is the fastest I've gone, but want to go One hundred forty five. For the price it gives you speed, dynamic handling, some luxury, and a lot of fun.

I had a 1985 DeVille that was an engineering disaster. I never thought I would own another GM car let alone a Cadillac. However after test driving the CTS plus the great deal, I took a chance. I was thinking about a top end Camry or Ford 500. My CTS was in the same price range but in another class when it comes to performance. The mileage was the biggest surprise. I get between 28 mpg to 31 mpg on the road. Where we live we have a lot of twisty two lanes road that we have to use, a real pain except when I use the CTS. So far I really love this car.

I have been having problems with my 2004 Cadillac CTS since 7/2005 with the car dying out while driving on three occasions and I have had to have the battery changed twice. My car has been in the dealership for roughly one month while they are trying to figure out what is going on. They are not having much luck. They are only working on the dead battery problem. They gave up on finding out why the car dies out while driving. After my experience with the service level of the dealership and the Cadillac corporate people I would never buy another Cadillc. Buyer beware.

My 2004 Cadillac CTS becomes more fun to drive each time I take it out. The sport luxury package w/17 inch wheels, is smooth accelerating and handling. I just love this car. I also tested an Acura TL, but for some reason, I just wasn't that impressed.

I am only 24 years old, and I just want to say I am very impressed with my new 2004 Cadillac CTS. I am picking it up tomorrow, because thats when they will have it ready for me. So I don't have much experience with it except for taking it for a test drive, but boy am I impressed. I simply love the futuristic exterior, the whole outer body of this vehicle. Inside my car has an all black interior and is equipped with many updated features such as XM satellite radio, a wood trim steering wheel, an auto theft deterrent device, and the new stabilitc control system. Also, the lumbar cushioned seat is fantastic. I am similarly impreseed with the memory drivers seat. The car handles very smoothly like I am floating on air. And it is as quiet as a mouse.

I love my CTS! It is so easy to drive and park. Visibility is good. I have the Luxury Sport package with the 255 HP engine, Bose sound system, and the 17 inch wheels. This is a very practical and comfortable family car and gets excellent gas mileage. My only issues with this car is the door height from the inside (I always have to open the door when I am at the drive-up ATM) the fact that the car can easily be accidentally shifted into neutral from drive if my passenger crosses legs or shifts and bumps the shifter, and that the blower for the climate controls is VERY loud. A loaner CTS I recently drove with fewer options was not as enjoyable. Get upgrades on this car.

My 2004 Cadillac CTS is smooth and fast. It is a total joy to drive. When hitting a headwind or crosswind, you can hardly tell. It has no road noise and is a real head-turner. I have had absolutely no maintenance issues. Just change the oil every 10,000 miles w/Mobil 1, put in the gas and go.

When I was in the market for a new car, I was looking extensiviley for the best midsize luxury sedan, and did not care one bit about brand or price if I felt that the car was a good value. I ended up purchasing a 2004 Cadillac CTS. The best car to me means, in the highest 5% class of all cars made for safety, comfort, drivablity, performance, reliabilty, operating cost, and total value. Spending months investigating automotive publications and internet reviews, comparing detailed specification data, and driving many of the cars that met my stringent requirements, only two cars remained out of all the competitors. They were the BMW 5-series and the CTS. The one area that seperated the cars by a wide margin was CTS's high value/lower price for the better overall offering.

I tried everything from an Audi to a Lincoln in this syle and class. For the price, it is a value. The only thing I don't like is the 16" rims. I asked the dealer for an upgrade to 17" or 18", (whatever is on the cts-v) and they told me it was not available but I could purchase the tires, rims and the equipment after I bought the car for $900.00 each rim and $200 each tire. I did not even want to know about the other stuff I needed after that. It is a great car but looks much better with larger tires and rims. I do like it better than my Audi S4 except for the speed of the S4 was unreal!

I have oened 1983 and 1989 Cadillac Fleetwoods and a 1999 Cadilac Deville The CTS isn't as nice as any of them, luxury-wise. I also have a 2000 Mazda 2k Miata LS. The CTS isn't even as sporty as the Miata.\ Well, maybe it can keep pace with it on a straightaway but the Miata would kill it in the curves. Make no mistake the CTS is NOT an all weather Corvette. THE GOOD: The new CTS has great looking sheet metal, ergonomic steering wheel and console controls; shiftable automatic transmission w/sport and snow options. It does have a trip computer. It’s a dry pavement 0-100 monster. THE BAD: It felt drifty on the highway at first-feeling passed. It needed to have an alignment before 5,000 miles. The dealer couldn't do it the same day and the fix cost me $50 at an alignment shop.

I just took my CTS out for the weekend. It performed just as I'd hoped. Fun, fast, and classy. Great handling and speed and decent gas mileage. Lots of interior and trunk space. The On-star system is nice but I have to think about the later costs of maintaining it. Original looks/design. Everyone who wants to complain about the outsourcing of jobs etc. should think of the foreign cars that they drive.

I love the look, the drive, and I'm very pleased. Prior to this purchase, I had owned 3 SUVs, but I do like the change. The only negative I can think of is lack of my storage space on the dashboard.

What's it really like? Never before have I had a car to get so much attention. Additionally it handles well, drives almost as smooth as a heavier car. We tried the volvo, lexus and many other cars in its category and found cts to offer more.

I went from an Oldsmobile Bravada (SUV) to the CTS--I've put 11,000+ miles on it in 4 months & thus far all is well. Once I got used to the rear-wheel drive, I found the CTS has terrific handling and cornering capability. It has killer acceleration & a smooth ride--but there's also the unnerving factor of finding yourself driving far faster than you intended. My CTS gets around 25-27 mpg on the highway, driving 80-85mph on average (!) The only problem encountered so far is having a bent rim (probably from a *&^ MI pothole.) Overall, the quality of this car is excellent. It's not illegal or "wrong" to have this much fun driving is it? :

Gas mileage is poor.

The screen is so poorly shielded that the sun will cause a blinding light in the driver's eyes when it hits the screen in the moring or evening and reflects to the driver. I almost wrecked the first time this happened to me. I have since had the back windshield tinted very dark. My dealer and Cadillac ignorned my problem and complaints.

Cadillac has a truely fine entry-lux car with the CTS. If you are looking at BMW, Audi, Saab, Lincoln LS or Lexus-give the CTS a test drive, you will be pleasantly surprised! The CTS handling/drive is very impressive- feels like a sport sedan should.

This is one of the most exciting automobiles that I have ever had the pleasure of owning.I've had a few minor problems,one with the cumputer system and a power window connector loose. This car handles very well a all speeds and I just came up from Fla. to Mass and at an average speed of 75/80 mph I was getting 27.1 mph with the A/C on.I do find the controls confusing as some people have said. I don't care which car you get into today thare all scarey when you look at the electronics.

A real nice surprise

I bought a CTS with the 3.6L engine and automatic. The ride is much quieter and the road imperfections get absorbed very well, but there is a slight sense of disconnect compared to my previous car (2003 Tiburon). However, the car handles (even w/o the Sport pkg) extremely well. Body lean is negligible, and steering is precise. I don't consider the interior to be luxury oriented as much as techncially sumptuous. It's definitely upscale looking and wood belongs in furniture and buildings, not cars. It's great to feel good about owning a "reward" car that's made in the USA. Way to go GM and all you Lansing plant workers! Great job!!

A very nice looking car. As a previous cadillac holder, I expected a more luxurious interior with more amenities.Had to purchase the available packages but it appears stripped with a lower price to attract new younger purchasers. Car is small inside but very enjoyable to drive. Not really the best sedan for company in the rear as it is cramped.Nevertheless,very enjoyable in the city and to park.

Cool Car

I got this car with every option and I have been extremely impressed. The look and drive are excellent. I have had BMWs and this car replaced a Mercedes SLK. It is as good as these vehicles. It is much larger inside then the 330 which I considered before this purchase. The road noise is almost non-existence in the car. I was a little concerned about the quality but have been pleasantly surprised. This car is rocket with 260 horsepower. It really is responsive to drive input.

Cadillac & GM should be very pleased!!

I'm a 28 year old bachelor, never in a million years did I think I'd be driving a Caddy. Thank you GM for making your products competitive in a crowded market, it feels good to get behind the wheel of an American car. As for the vehicle, tons of value for the money over BMW's and Audi's. Fast, nimble and has a great purr when you throttle it.

First drove in 2003 with the 3.2 V6 engine. I liked the car but a little underpowered with AT. Glad I waited for the 2004 with 3.6 V6 with variable valve timing and 255 HP. Great acceleration, very quiet and decent gas mileage. The 5 speed AT is the smoothest I have ever used. I purchased this over another BMW, although I didn't trade the Bimmer.

This is my first step into the Luxury/Sport Car calss, and I couldn't be happier. I drove the C-Class Mercedes, the 525i BMW and the Audi A4. For the price and features the CTS was the best value. Unless you can afford to make the step into an E- Class Benz, a 500 Series BMW or the A6, the CTS gives you the best "bang" for the buck. It is smooth, powerful, and responsive, a real pleasure to drive.

I entered the Cadillac marketin 1998 with a Catera. It was fun to drive, but not too dependable. I traded it for the CTS in 2002. the CTS was even more fun to drive and has been a very dependable performer so far. I really like this car. I have owned about 15 new cars over the years and this one is up there among the best.

The automotive press is missing the boat on this one. The styling is distinctive and different and I like that a lot considering the sea of boring imports out there. The CTS has great power, gets good gas mileage, is comfortable, has a ton of storage and overall is a ball to drive. It has a great turning radius and is a snap to parallel park in the city. What more could you want? The best parts of my day are driving to and from work in this gem.

My first Cadillac was the Catera in 2001 which I thought was a very well- built car. The new CTS leaves the Catera in the dust! Wonderful handling on the open road, and when you use the cruise control, you get a cruising range of 400+! The seats are extremely comfortable (both front and rear), and the temperature controls make riding in extreme heat or cold a non-issue. I am 'floored' that this is not in the top ten list of "Best of..." cars. One drive will convince you.

The car is a joy to drive. I have driven it for approximately 8300 miles with any trouble. Prior to owning this car I drove a Honda Accord, primarily because of the Honda's reliability record. However, the Cadillac has been trouble free and more fun to drive. This is my first Cadillac and I'd buy another without hesitation.

I was a non GM owner before i purchased MeAmour (2004 CTS). My intentions was to buy a Lexus, but after GM introduced MeAmour to the world, i was mezmerized with the bodystyle and determined to have the hottest looking vehicle on the road. It is chic and suave, and it handles really smooth yet approaches like a panther. That's why i call it MeAmour (english and french for 'my love')IT IS AWESOME

To buy this car, I had to sacrifice some options to keep the price down. I'm overjoyed at how amazing this car is still. I bought an '04 CTS with only one option... the engine upgrade/auto trans. The car literally floors me with it's bold styling and performance. I thought I'd regret dropping the options, and although I'd rather have a V or a loaded model, I'm extremely satisfied. I do not feel that the editor's rating on Edmund's gives this car justice at all.

Bought this as a return to Cadillac after 10 years of Mercedes. Still have one but thought I would give the CTS a try. I am very pleased with the handling and performance of this vehicle. I do not have enough miles to give a reliability rating but it finally feels like Caddy got this right. It wanders a little more than a real german car at high speeds and does not feel quite as solidly stuck to the ground, but for 40 grand I am so far pleased.

My first Caddy, a 2004 CTS, had it for 5 months now. I have the 1SB package (bigger engine, auto trans, memory seats, and other stuff) and the sport package. I like the smooth power and smooth but sporty ride and the firm, responsive handling (Sport Package). Unless you must have manual transmission, I highly recommend the larger V6 engine. Interesting note: the font style of the gauges (speedo, tach, etc) is the same as in the Corvette.

The Cadillac CTS says 'drive me', and that is exactly what I did when I went hunting for a car in the spring of 2003. Cadillac was getting a lot of buzz, being that the XLR and SRX were getting ready to roll into the dealers, and that the CTs has been getting a lot of buzz. I checked out a loaded CTS and test-drived. I bought it that day, at the dealership, right there, right then. My Cadillac has a 220 hp V-6, but I will be getting either a V-Series or something else soon. I love the vehicle.

I received the Cadillac CTS as a company car and it has been the most impressive company car that I've ever driven. In the past I have had Volvo, Sabb and various General Motors, Fords and Chrysler's. I really like the firm suspension without being considered bumpy. After driving the sob 9-5 I was surprised that he used more gas but I guess that's what you have to give up for the performance. The styling of the car is really progressive and is like nothing else on the highway. For those who enjoy being different this is just what they're looking for.

This car is a constant pleasure to drive. Outstanding driving feel, beautiful new engine,(the 3.6L), and high content for the dollar. Interior materials feel better than they look, no Altima-like hard plastics... Everything feels high quality, perhaps it is the light shine coating GM put on everything that takes away from the look. Cant say enough about the new engine and transmission, I have never felt a more seamless auto in my life, this includes overrated BMW and MB. Couple small gripes--loose carpet near the driver right foot, but the dealer/GM will fix it no charge. Cant beat the domestics on rebates either. EXCELLENT first effort by GM here.

The Bose system and XM make a great combination. We just had a snow and ice storm and for a rear wheel drive vehicle it handled extremely well in the snow mode with traction control on.

I have never bought a Caddy, but knowing this car was designed to compete with European cars made me take a closer look. Even though I do not have the sport suspension, it still handles quite well. I also do not have the Bose stereo, but it still cranks out the sound. What I do not like is the cheap boom box center stack. GM just can't seem to figure it out. The climate control is also poorly designed. They used the same controls that was in a Buick I rented last summer. Guess it was a cost saving thing.. but if you want to compete with the real sport sedans.... The info center is also hard to read and the controls are poorly laid out.

I picked this CTS in Michigan and drove it to Seattle. Averaged 27 MPG at 85+. Drove about 1,000 miles in the snow and it handled perfect.

The CTS performs with little hesitation when you press on the gas pedal. The 1SC package with engine, suspension and cabin upgrade was a good addition. Stabilitrac keeps the car from rolling in turns. The cabin is very comfortable. The exterior is built to very tight tolerances. I looked at the Acura TL, Infiniti G35, BMW 525i and Audi A6. The CTS is simply more fun.

Before the 2004 CTS, we owned two Catera's. The first one had a few problems, the second virtually none. We shopped around and drove other cars in the same class. We ended up with the CTS, Cadillac's owner loyalty incentive was the financial clincher. We love the way the car drives. With the new, larger V-6 and less weight than the Catera, combined with the 5- speed automatic, it is very quick. The handling is very tight and precise. It is fun to drive!

I've owned a lot of German iron over the years - seven BMWs, a Porsche, three M-Bs, five VWs, and two Audis, Even an NSU Ro80, for those of you that know what that is! And, as noted, we own a new 3-Series and an E-Class right now. This car can stand proud with any of those. Is it as good as a 2004 BMW 330i? No. But it's oh-so-close, and the price differential is substantial (in the Cadillac's favor) when equipped the same way - loaded with automatic transmission. And, I like the looks of the CTS better.

we are very happy with the car and the performance. It has a sport suspension but does not ride to harsh. The styling is what orignally grabed our attention, however the interior styling is not in line with the $41,000 window sticker.It looks like it belongs in a Chevy Caviler, not a Cadillic. Jeff Wylers' staff treated us poorly when we bought the car.They told us that the financing was changed, that they went through a different bank (after we signed the paperwork) and we had to resign new papers. they jacked the orignal rate up charging us an additional $1800.

On August 9, 2003, I purchased a new 2004 CTS. In September, on a short road trip, the master cylinder failed and I had no brakes. It was replaced after 11 days under warranty. On October 26, on a longer trip, the engine died while doing 70 mph on the interstate. The car was towed to a Cadillac dealer and he could find no errors in the cars computer, but tweaked some things and said the car was fine. On November 1, the car again died on the interstate and was towed to the nearest dealer where we left the car for good! After three dangerous failures in this car, we are now driving a Lexus, after receiving our money back from Cadillac.

No car I have ever driven has received so much attention as my CTS. I have been stopped at least twice a week since I got the car with people providing favorable feedback. If you don't want attention, don't drive this car. It is extremely confortable for the long haul and has the acceleration, handling, and braking to mix it up in traffic. Glad I got it.

Over the yrs.I owned 14 different cars and am now on my 2nd Cad. The 1st Cad was a '76 S as it broke from the "old people" look of it's day with what was then the "Euro Look". Then in the 80's the Cad S started looking like the "old people" look again & I changed. Now the new CTS model of the Cad has a youth look to it & even though I am now "old", I like the new looks of it. The 2004 CTS "goes" when you need it and is fantastic on the turns. In the 50's we tried to make those old cars do what the CTS does today. So if you want comfort, performance, good fuel efficiency and fun with a car, try a CTS. You will love it.

We test drove the competition, Audi, BMW and the Lexus. The CTS has them all beat for value and quality. The craftsmanship is excellent. I have examined the car inside and out and the fit and finish is as good or better than the much higher priced German and Japanese cars. We thought the Japanese interiors and to a less of a degree the Europeans, were a bit on the "tacky" side. Their interiors reminded us of a Las Vegas Casino, just "too" much. The CTS interior is very tasteful, clean and very pleasing to the eyes. It is not so cluttered with the tacky plastic-looking-wood trim that you'll find in the Lexus.

This car handles like a dream. It has plenty of acceleration to stay out of trouble when passing, or getting into trouble on the open road. Gas mileage suffers a little for a 6 cylinder engine, however, I am not sure that the fun acceleration (which entices a heavy foot if you have one)is more the culprit. The 2004 with the increased hp will truly make this car a world-class contender with such cars as BMW, Accura, Infinity and Lexis.

Lots of power and speed, its almost too quick, in passing it will get to 90+ before you know it and it feels so good at that speed you don't want to slow down. I have had 43 cars in my 47 years of driving and this is by far the very best. I drove the BMW, Volvo R and several others before I bought and I liked the CTS best. Its size made the difference over the BMW. Lots more room. And it will outrun it. Can't say anything bad about it yet!!!

Best car I ever had.

Had the car for three weeks. The CTS is replacing a Taurus SHO V8. Thought the SHO was a great car, but the CTS feels more European in character. Drives more like a BMW than a Caddy. Love the eveness of the vehicle during hard cornering or braking, you can really feel the 50%/50% front to rear weight distribution. I am used to the nose-heavy Taurus which is a great car, but no Cadillac.

Great Value, Lots of Fun

Have 1st 04 delivered in SW Florida. 3.6vvt is OUTSTANDING(plus it takes regular fuel). Sport package is stellar, ride firm but compliant. Lumbar support for 04 is welcome. The 48th new car I've owned, this is the best overall for fun to drive plus luxury. Fit and Finish perfect. Quiet and solid. New(for 04)Mirror polished Sport Wheels are awesome. Traded a 2001 Aurora (that I liked VERY much)but the 04 CTS is in a different class entirely.Unqualified recommendation to anyone shopping this category.Great value.

Love this car!!!

i am suprised how well this car handles and operates, I traded an aurora (2001) for this car and so far it was a good decision. My only compaint is that the nob for the radio on the steering wheel should be recess a little more. I keep hit it when I turn the steering wheel using one finger. It might be that my fingers a too large?

I like the 04

Mine is Smoke Gray with dark tinited windows. Looks great. Very very quick from 0-60. Steering is wonderful and seems without effort. Handeling is tight and responsive. Sound system is clear and easy to specialize. Enough space for 4 adults to ride in solid comfort.

You will not want any other car once a CTS spoils you. Only downside: so high-tech/state-of- the-art that it will take you awhile to learn all fancy features.

Great Car

Have been driving my CTS for 3000 miles and loved every one of them. Great styling and a comfortable interior. People stare everywhere I go. Lately, BMW 3-series and like bellybullons (everybody has one). I also test drove a 330i (Lately, BMW 3-series and like bellybullons, everybody has one, a C320 and an A4. For the money, the CTS beat them all hands-down.

What a great suprise

I came home after getting a raise to tell my wife I wanted to get her an Escalade for her birthday. To my surprise, she said that she had been driving SUV's for 13 years and since our kids were driving she wanted something fun. This has proven to be a big hit - solid construction, great looking and FUN to drive. This is a big step in the right direction for Cadillac.
