    Lightbulb purchased new 2014 Cadillac CTS Premium

    I just bought a White Diamond Tricoat 2014 Cadillac CTS Premium RWD (3.6L V6) with Kona Brown (Jet Black Accent) interior.

    This is my first Cadillac and I'm pretty happy with how this thing drives. Its fairly athletic and has a smooth ride.

    I test drove the Jaguar XF, a Mercedes E-Class, and the Lexus GS, and it was down to between the Lexus and the Cadillac and I'm happy with what I chose. The Mercedes felt heavy and laborious to drive which then the Jaguar didn't have the same amount of interior space and was louder overall, felt like it was missing sound proofing vs the others.

    I had a Lexus IS before this and I think the CTS is an upgrade in almost every way possible. Its quieter, has more power, and the adaptive cruise control feature is pretty neat. It just follows the car ahead and maintains distance without any drama. The seats are also very comfortable and the self tensioning seat belt does take a little getting used to.

    My only complain with this car is the 8-speed automatic transmission feels a little sluggish and doesn't quite shift the way I think it should.


    I took these pictures of the car yesterday afternoon:

    Congrats on the new CTS.

    And it goes to show how much transmission tuning is important as the 8 speed in the CTS is the same Aisin unit in the GS. Wonder if that behavior will change when GM switches over to their own 8 speed auto.

    Same car as mine--except I have AWD, being in the northeast. Great combo. Congrats!

    Re: More pictures!

    Seriously beautiful car. Some of those pics look like Cadillac brochure pics. From the sunny sky it looks like you are in the part of the country where white is the smartest option. CTS is beautiful in white. Spend some time in the CUE manual. It is the favorite part of my CTS. Don't get in an accident the first month while you're staring at CUE too much! Enjoy.

    superchargedCTS, The car looks great. I am sure that you will be happy with it. It is interesting that you picked the CTS over the others. Personally, I think you made the right choice.

    As an aside, it is nice to know that Laura from Cadillac Customer Care is monitoring this site. I have not seen one of her posts before, so from me, Welcome Laura. It is good to have you here.

    Are you still trying to do all the customization and personalization? Nice to see an interior other than cashmere or black.

    ----------

    Laura,
    If I give you my VIN can you tell me where in transit it is? I can check with dealer but was curious if you had this info. Mine was built on April 15 and is still in transit.
    Thanks.

    Wow, that color looks amazing. The White Knight! For most every car I see, I like Black or Titanium, but this new CTS seems to look better with the lighter colors. Some website has pictures of a blue one they reviewed and it looks amazing also.
