Most comfortable car I've ever owned

I now understand why people buy Cadillacs. There is really nothing else that compares in comfort. I'm in the transportation business and have driven numerous vehicles and can not find one as comfortable. We travel a lot and have some back issues and this vehicle is perfect with its lumbar support. The design and interior quality is excellent. The base 14 speaker sound system is phenomenal. Big easy to use Cadillac que system is great. More power than its competitors and better gas mileage. I get 27 mpg on the highway and 23 mpg in town out of a larger suv. The gear shifter takes about 2 minutes to get used to. The lane assist is great and not annoying like most foreign vehicles. The only negative I have is depreciation. If you are looking to trade in after a couple of years you will be very frustrated. This is my second one and I lost 60% of the value in 3 years on the first one. Not good. However, you can get a great deal on one as a leftover or even used with low miles it's worth it for me. If I wanted something that doesn't depreciate and not nearly as comfortable I would have bought a Toyota. However, I value comfort and style at this stage in my life.

This car is more spacious than X3 and at a lesser price. I really like the comfortable ride, spacious interiors and the price which is lower than other luxury cars.

The locks dont work. you either get locked out or locked in. There is no way to open the car, not via onstar not even manually, the car stays like that for hours and days at a time. When you go to the dealer they cant find what is wrong with it. It is an intermittent problem, but even when you arrive at the dealer and they duplicate the problem, they dont fix it. GM tells you you are on your own, to go to service to get it fix. Not a good car, not a good company, do not recommend it at all. Buy from another make.

I hunted around for months for 2018-2019 Lincoln MKX or XT5. I drove many and simply found the XT5 a far better value here's why. As a mechanic I know alot about turbos and hte problems that happen as the turbo ages. We tend to keep our vehicles for 5-6 years so this is a huge problem for us. Turbos fail folks.... It is horribly expensive to repair a turbo. There is also a common problem with a part of the turbo called a turbo wastgate. This has a huge fail rate as well. Imho - a naturally aspirated engine is far more reliable long term. The XT5 v6 is a superb engine. Its very reliable. This matter. The upside of a turbo engine is you get power immediately at most parts of the power range. XT5 V6 has parts of the power band that don;t punch like the the turbo engines of others. But its not important to us. Its got tons of overall power. Where the XT5 really rocks is on the highway. What a great ride, dead quiet and super comfortable. It took a day to get used to the tranny stick. Super easy Start stop is far more useful and a nuisance. Don;t drive like a jerk and you wont even notice the delay of the line. The only people who hate this feature are road demons in a hurry. You need to chill and all will be provided..

This xt5 is replacing an 80,000 mile 2013 srx which was very reliable. This the reason for purchasing another Cadillac. Reliability, comfort, and safety behind the wheel.

Great comfortable ride and little noise. Lots of get up and go with 310 HP. Only complaint would be the feature that shuts the engine off at stops to save fuel and no option to bypass. Very pleased so far.
