A used Cadillac CTS is a good choice for someone seeking a mid size sports sedan with ample luxury appointments. The Cadillac CTS first premiered in 2001 and was updated for 2008. Available trims include the Base, Luxury, AWD, Performance, Premium, V, and the discontinued Eco Lux. The 2.8 liter V6 base engine on earlier models provides 210 horsepower and 194 lb-ft torque. Optional engines include a 255 horsepower 3.6 liter V6 and a 400 horsepower 6.2 liter V8. The 2.8 liter V6 was replaced by a 270 horsepower 3.0 liter V6, while other engines received a gain in horsepower on newer models. Transmission choices include a 5-speed automatic overdrive transmission, 6-speed manual overdrive transmission, and on some models, a 6-speed automatic overdrive transmission. Air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, cruise control, tilt wheel, and power seats are standard, while optional leather and wood trim are just some of the many available convenience items. Driver and passenger airbags, antilock brakes, traction control, stability control, and OnStar are some of the many standard safety features. At 191.60 inches in length and 72.50 inches in width, there is plenty of interior space for 5 passengers and their cargo. 17-inch wheels are standard with 18-inch wheels available on some models. MPG ranges from 12-27 depending on the engine and transmission choices; the standard V6 providing the best overall gas mileage. Reliability has been excellent with few reported problems, which is another good reason to buy a used Cadillac CTS. Newer models also have the 60 month/100,000 mile powertrain warranty.
