I have owned over 100 cars in my time and typically go for the Muscle Cars and the Fast Cars. I have owned a handful of Caddy's and have never been disappointed with any of them. This CTS is a beautiful vehicle. The Styling is remarkable both inside and out. Powered by a 3.6 liter V-6 that could be easily mistaken for it's bigger cousin the V-8. The 335 Horsepower engine leaves nothing to the imagination when called upon to get you where you want to go when you want to go there. When searching for a new car, it was initially the Lincoln MKZ I was looking at. Afraid the Caddy would put too big of a dent in my wallet, I was pleasantly surprised to have gotten mine with only 17k on the clock for $27,900.00. Quite a difference from a new one wearing a sticker of $54,000.00. Bottom Line - Very Happy with this Car... Pro's - Cadillac treats their customers (even the ones that buy used) as Preferred Customers.. Free Oi Changes, Free Cabin Air Filters, Great Coffee while waiting. Con's - I'll let you know when I find one.

I have not owned this vehicle 🚗 long enough

This vehicle was delivered to me with On Star not working and still not working It will be repaired when I get back home. At least I hope that it will be repaired

Only Owned a Month--Good So Far

I am pleased overall. I wish there were a larger middle console for storage. That compartment is quite small. I have a Hyundai Sonata that has more useable inside storage than this CTS. No good place to set phone or sunglasses other than cup holders in front of center console. While glove compartment is a nice size, not convenient for driver storage. My trunk space is also slightly smaller than Sonata. Other than that, I love this car. Seats and headrest are comfortable plus both front seats can be adjusted which is super nice. The car also rides so smoothly and love the Bose speaker system. Right now I am quite pleased with the purchase and buying a low mileage one-year old car is a tremendous deal over buying new. Still have half of new car warranty in effect so feel fairly comfortable with the purchase. I suppose time will tell but we are counting on this being positive.

2018 Cadillac CTS Overview

The 2018 Cadillac CTS is a compact luxury sedan that competes with the Lincoln MKX, BMW 3 Series, and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Five trims are available: the base model, Luxury, Premium Luxury, V-Sport, and V-Sport Premium Luxury.

Under the hood, the CTS has three engine options. The base model is powered by a standard 268-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder, while the 335-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 is optional. V-Sport models get a 420-hp, twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V-6. An 8-speed automatic is the only transmission option. Rear-wheel drive is standard, with all-wheel drive optional. Also available is the Magnetic Ride Control adaptive suspension, which offers adjustable modes and helps keep the CTS flat under sharp cornering.
