Guide: 5=Perfect; 3=Good; 1=Poor
Pros: What do you like about 2007 Cadillac CTS?
Handling is excellent for such a large, comfortable vehicle.
Highway road feel is excellent, up to speeds above 100mph.
Solid luxury feel with sporty handling and ride-don't feel like car is floating, but isn't a rough rider, either.
Seats are extremely comfortable.
Auto HVAC works perfectly and rarely needs adjusting.
Overall build quality is very good.
Good fit for tall drivers.
Emergency handling is impressive for such a heavy car.
New units price out close to higher-rated Euro competition.
Used car value is amazing and far better than anything on the market.
Cons: How would you improve 2007 Cadillac CTS?
Passenger front seat back jerks during heavy braking and can't be fixed by dealer.
City gas mileage is very bad (10 mpg).
Several squeaks and annoying rattles that dealer doesn't know how, or want, to deal with.
No stability control on base model. (What were they thinking?)
No turn signal lamps on side view mirrors.
Auto-dimming rear view mirror takes too long to dim.
High deck makes backing up difficult-needs backup camera or sensors.
Road noise at high speeds.
2007 Cadillac CTS Review:
Purchased a 2007 CTS base model with 39K miles for $15K last October. Amazing value for the money and has restored my faith in American cars. This being said after owning a total of 16 cars over 25 years, including Mercedes, BMW, Honda, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo.
If you are looking for the best performing and handling car you can buy, get a BMW. If you are looking for the quietest, best luxury car, get Lexus. However, if you want the best crossover of the two, the CTS is a great choice. Like this car enough to buy another new, or newer, one next go around.
