    Apparently you haven't checked out the new Malibu. WTF were they thinking.

    At least it's consistent. Last in all of the recent comparos.

    Sad.

    I agree with some of you regarding the styling. To me I think the front end looks really beautiful, I like the big grill and the almost CIEL front headlamps and fascia. I 100% agree about the rear of the car, it's really plain and boring. The XTS's rear is more stylish than the CTS's. it seams like they have all the styling statements up front and seams to taper off to boring in the back.

    If they are watering down their styling there is a risk, at least for me, that my CTS will be my first and last Cadillac.
    Gohawks, we've had very similar experiences in the types of cars we bought and the timing as well, and once again, I agree completely with your post. My average time of ownership is between 3-6 years so when I'm ready for the next car, I'm afraid I'll be looking elsewhere (unless the ELR price is less than anticipated; at least I'll give Cadillac kudos on the styling of that vehicle). Don't know if I'll just be holding onto my CTS coupe longer or looking at something like I was originally interested in until I was swayed by the CTS styling: the A5. Either way, this may also be my first and last Cadillac. Judging by the thousands of views this has gotten on the short time this post has been on here, I sure hope Cadillac is paying serious attention.

    ***NEWSFLASH***
    Feb 9, 2013
    Bowing to intense pressure, GM announced today they will ditch the controversial rear end styling on the upcoming 2014 CTS and proceed with their runner-up design. Specifics weren't provided, however a tipster within GM provided an updated spy image (see below).
    Look for the full reveal of the all-new '14 CTS at the 2013 New York International Auto Show in March.

    You cannot believe that GM could F up that bad. They wrote the book on f...ing up. Actually it's not the size of a book as it is more like the size of a set of encyclopiedias.

    I'd much rather see a couple of nice exhaust tips.

    Re: 2014 Cadillac CTS: This Is It

    I have a 2012 CTS and the seats won't heat up during a remote start and taking it out on the highway makes me feel like I'm driving in a bubble/wind tunnel. By the looks of things, I'm stuck with this "loaf", unless or until I can get help or purchase something else. So, even though the looks of the 2014 are a turnoff, I'd certainly consider it - if they could fix what they build!

    Yes they do under a certain temperature. The indicator won't light up but seat begins to warm up. The heating element will heat up much faster once your behind puts pressure on the seat. Do some searching this has been discussed many times.

    Re: 2014 Cadillac CTS: This Is It

    Wow....you really expected them to totally retool the CTS to be different from the ATS and XTS? You have no idea of the interior appointments, and your ready to throw the baby out with the bath water. Quite frankly, the CTS sedan design is old and outdated and needed a change...perhaps you guys are more set in your ways than you think. Those sharp angle designs are ANCIENT!! I love the ATS design and dumped my 2008 STS just to buy it, I was so impressed. The handling, performance, interiors, engines, CUE, etc, are such a jump ahead of the older STS and CTS models. I remember having work done on my STS, and I had a CTS loaner.....what a horrible car! The interior was cheap and old fashioned, and the handling was rough and uncomfortable; could hardly wait to get the STS back. Even though i preferred the ATS over the XTS, I think these models are some of the most beautifully designed Cadillacs to date....believe me, other happy Cadillac customers bear this out! CTS sales have slipped for a reason. To each his own.
