That isn't going to change, Caddy under priced the car, and they never seem to compare money wise, only size.....
They compared it to the 3 series.
EDMUNDSis exactly why we gathered this group of sport sedans. That is, to find out if the 2008 Cadillac CTS, 2007 Infiniti G35 Sport, 2008 Lexus IS 350 or 2008 Mercedes-Benz C350 Sport can topple the Bavarian champ — the 2007 BMW 335i. In the spirit of the segment, each car in the test is outfitted with sport package hardware — usually a stiffer suspension and bigger wheels and tires — and an automatic transmission.
MONEY CNNIt measures nearly a foot shorter, two inches narrower, and weighs several hundred pounds less.
we can ask for FINALLY: GM's said car (CTS) is better car and better buy than said Import car (insert here)That isn't going to change, Caddy under priced the car, and they never seem to compare money wise, only size.
Kinda like my buddies 98 Accord in my driveway now is super teensy tiny compared to my Impala and yet they were supposed to be the same class....
But regardless, they love it, as a GM product, what more can we ask for?
Ouch! See, this is the thing that GM cannot have happening with their new product. Even though your case may be very isolated, it's a case of bad quality. Not only did the person (or robot) installing the seals and rear window not do it correctly, the problem slipped through final quality control inspections.Not to rain on everyones parade...literally!!!!!
But my mom's 2008 CTS sprung a leak this weekend during the heavy rains we have been having on the East Coast.
Appears the leak is coming from the top of the back window.....rain has intruded the headliner, left back seat and the trunk.......NOT HAPPY!!!!
Dad will be at the Caddy Dealer first thing on Monday!!!
Otherwise they love the car....just hope it won't smell after the repair.
They should love it the CTS is an outstanding car. I only heard only one bad review and the first sentence shows the person is biased. The only thing the CTS really needs now is a more powerful engine options. The DI V6 is probably enough power for most buyers but a engine between the DI V6 and V version is needed IMO. It could be a V6 or V8 but it needs something. I just wish I could afford a CTS right now, I would buy it in an instant.I can't believe I'm saying this, but they seem to LOVE it. Just like it should be.
It's better then having every review point out that Cadillac has no 3-series competitor. That they have ignored the largest volume car in each of their competitor's portfolios.The problem is simple and plain that the CTS is the STS replacement, but until it actually takes the spot, or a smaller car come in under it... DUMB-ass Media Types are gonna use it's comparisons in performance test as a way of belittling it.
A 3-Series competitor is coming from Cadillac. The CTS is designed to compete with the 5-series but for now to cover the gaps until the lower end Cadillac comes, it's priced closer to a 3-Series.Why can't Cadillac just take a 3, style it as a Cadillac inside and now and tune the steering to be lighter? Thats what the media and buying public wants, why can't GM deliver?
