2005 Cadillac CTS 3.6 from North America
This car was a horrible experience, and I can't wait to be rid of it
Engine blew up at 51000 miles right after the manufacturer's warranty. Cadillac would not return my calls or help me in anyway. After paying for the repairs out of pocket, a crossover pipe inside the engine has a leak. This is estimated at 1150 for repairs. The value of the car is so low, it is not worth the investment.
The car is a nightmare to drive in the snow; you cannot get traction and get stuck in the driveway with a dusting of snow. I have kept up the maintenance and repairs on this car, and nothing seems to go right. I would never buy another GM car!
The car is unreliable, expensive to maintain, and generally not safe.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

GM and Cadillac have got clever with giving potential buyers of this type of car exactly what they want in a car. Most buyers of this model Caddy have never owned a Caddy before, so they seem to think this is what a Caddy should be. Those of us who have had Fleetwoods and Broughams wouldn't look twice at a CTS because we know it's a complete farce of a Cadillac. Fleetwoods and Broughams are heavy enough in the rear, so they don't get stuck easily. A dusting of snow is nothing for them to handle. An Eldo from the 70's and early 80's is so good in snow, it may as well be a 4 wheel drive. Yet every winter I see STS and CTS stuck on 1 inch of snow.
