Question New Cadillac CTS --Great! or Horrible!--



Just curious what your opinions are

i personally dont think it looks like a caddy
it just doesn't have that long wheelbase anymore

the front end is a little radical, but i'm starting to like it a bit.
i'll have to soon enough , since all newer cars are starting to look more radical, and ''concept''ish in design.

I don't think any amount of mods could make that car look any better. That car needs to be in front of this along with the people responsible for making that car

I like the way the car looks in person, unlike anything on the road. It is a welcome departure from the overly busy design of many caddys. I also lie the fact that it is availiable with a stick and according to the road tests I have read, it drives really well.

I duno how many times I've said it, but I admire the direction Caddy is taking. They've found their own unique design that will stand out from the rest..

I bet most people dont mind the Escalade, well, the CTS runs the same design lines..


I say its a sure winner.

i dont mind it at all,, like gamite said i also like the direction caddy's going in,, the only problem is that the car feels like a saturn!,,everything feels really cheap and light,,at the car show we were closing the door and it sounded and felt like tin!,,i asked the guy why it felt like a saturn and he said all car companies are trying to use the dent resistant technology,,,,,

You folks should start getting used to stuff like this. This car was once a concept car. Notice how a lot of the new cars are beginning to look like things we only saw in movies years ago?? Welcome to the future horrible as it may seem. In a few years, your (gasp) BMW may begin to look like this. It's already headed in that direction with the 7 series.
