  • damn filling out this survey made me realize that i love my car even though it's been through 6 servicings and i havent had it for more than 7 months.. scary
  • The CTS is a great car. As a gearhead who loves to work on F-bodies, it's nice to have a practical daily driver that's just as fun to drive as my project car... even if it's not as fast ;-)
  • Gm needs to seriously fix the rearend and drivetrain capabilities on these cars. Love it otherwise
  • poor gas milage should have bought the V milage is about the same but tired of shifting gears. i traded a corvette in on this. big mistake.
  • Still have issues with the quality of the audio, despite the Bose system. Especially on the XM and CD. Had the stereo replaced after much arguing with Cadillac Service, but it still has an "air noise". Too bad, otherwise it would be 10s all the way across.
  • Just wish the manual tranny gear shift lever shifted smoothly. very notchy.

    Thanks to all who filled out the survey. If you want more information which I did not post, feel free to e-mail me at
