    How the car makes me feel driving it on a warm summer day after detailing it.

    Dislikes:
    Bose radio fidelity ( geezers love it, but younger music lovers want more clarity and eq control)
    Gas mileage
    Infotainment system has become a dinosaur quick. Car markers have to start considering updates for their systems like any other technology related product. I have this great big screen but the software is killing experience. Grace notes is really poor.

    Thanks for characterizing those who actually don't mind the Bose 5.1 cabin surround system as "geezers". Nice one Bobby (or was that Ryan?).

    Yeah... I'm not the biggest fan of the Bose system's sound quality either, yet I like it for a factory OEM installation. Don't think I'm a geezer yet, but I've owned enough cars to set my expectations realistically. If you expect a stereo with superb clarity that has powerful bass and crystal clear highs, warm mids, and plenty of wattage to get as loud as you like and still retains that clarity? You're looking at aftermarket replacements. Compared to at least 90% of the vehicles on the market today, this Bose 5.1 cabin surround system sounds better. In my book, that's "good".

    The dealer showed my wife how to do this. The manual is missing a step in it! So Now i can put up my AC DC tracks and REALLY DRIVE HER CRAZY!!!

    CD's...what the hell are those...lol. Two words, Satellite Radio, give it a try....
    Um, did you miss the fact that this is a Premium CTS? Of course we have Sat Radio, 2nd car with it.

    But sometimes i don't want to wait THREE DAYS for Highway to Hell to come around on the XM!!

    1: I know my music & don't need gracenotes or any equivalent.
    2: You wouldn't know good music with clarity if it hit you with one of my 16 inchers (woofers that is - let's keep this clean!)!!

    As one 'o them "geezers" (my mind is 28, my bod not so much -- although unlike Willie Nelson, I haven't yet outlived my dick) who listens mostly to classical music, jazz, and 60s/70s rock, I find the Bose system to be pretty nice -- for a car. Now, if you're one of those young punks with no sense of decency who thinks that the bass portion of music should be artificially amplified to the point of shaking the paint off the car, annoying everyone else on the road, and inducing tone deafness, then you may want to "upgrade" to one of those hineyhole (the BB's word, not mine) BOOM BOOM systems.

    Styling (rear taillights especially)
    Ride
    Sunroof

    Dislikes:
    Gas mileage
    Lack of legroom in back seat
    Sloped back removing cargo room - but I like the styling so it is a wash.

    The only real complaint I have with the car is the gas mileage.

    As soon as I turn 17, my dad says I can paint my 2010 CTS lime green and throw some badass 20s on it. I am also going to install a nitrous kit that my buddy wants to sell me. When the back seat isn't full of babes and beer, my 6 - 12" Kickers shake the braces off my teeth. I love sitting at a light and watching my fuzzy dice vibrate when I have The Wiggles cranking. If that is not enough, I got an extra large bumper sticker glued to the back bumper that says "America: Love it or leave it". When I roll into the high school parking lot, people notice. Muddy or not, I listen loud and long. I added 6 extra door speakers to impress my buddies. Got em on sale at Amazon for $15 a piece. They glow pink in rythmn to my kicking tunes. On Friday night, when I am alone in my car I watch the neon pink lighting up my burrito.... life is good.

    Yeah, well, your brain won't be fully formed for another eight years, so you can be forgiven. For now.
