Why the 2008 Cadillac CTS?

Exterior styling

I love how aggressive it looks. It definitely stands out and is noticeable.

Interior styling

It is just beautifully and uniquely designed. I like the shape of the dash and the accent lighting.

Materials & workmanship

It is very nice, with leather trimmed dash, and soft materials. The chairs have a solid feeling to them. It is a first class appointed interior.


The CTS drives like a sports car, yet retains that typical Cadillac quite ride.

Powertrain performance

The engine is powerful enough and has that grunt that it needs when you redline it. It can also be a smooth cruiser when you want it to be.

Why Not the 2008 Cadillac CTS?

Driving position & visibility

The rear corner beams are very thick and it is very hard to see around you when backing up. This car should have standard backup sensors.

Dealer practices

The dealership I went to was really unprofessional. They were to bring a RWD CTS from another dealer, with my specific options, yet failed to. I ended up getting an AWD CTS that was missing a few features that I wanted, but was of the color I wanted.

Feature availability

There too many options. They should just make 3-4 packages and nothing else. It took a while to find a CTS I had wanted. Cause one was missing X feature, and the other had Y feature. It was a mess.

Price or payments


Rear seat room & comfort

The rear seats are a little snug, but bareable. However, if someone is pretty tall they might bump their head on the ceiling.
