    Cadillac or Other manufacturers

    Lets just take a gander at what people really think about Cadillac Vs the leading competitors foreign or domestic. Lets discuss the pros and cons of owning a cadillac vs owning a LEXUS ect ect. I for one am partial to cadillac myself since I own one and have had not very many problems out of mine. I've taken care of my just like the owners manual, may cost a little more but I guess in the long run I have saved myself quite a bit of money. I hear all the time about how great lexus, infinity, ect ect are so much better than cadillac but I dont know why people feel this way. This gives us a chance to express our views on both sides. This should make for a good sometimes heated converstaion. But it should be interesting. So lets get rolling with this, In my view I see that Cadillac should be rated #1 not only by the cars design, the engine proformance, and overall luxury. I also think that Cadillac has done many technogical advances far ahead of their time. Tell me another car that you can self diagnose without taking it to the dealer. They may be out there, you tell me. Anyhow just something to get the blood flowing. It should be interesting.

    The only thing I can see from the other companies that I used to wish Cadillac had was a 2 dr coupe like Lexus and Infinity. And my prayers been answered with the XLR.

    Ouch for the maintenance. Cadillac has the luxury lineage all right. And the name is certainly known all over the world for the ultimate in luxury.

    Since i'm a good handling loving guy i'm going to have to go with bmw. Auto leveling suspension on 7 series sounds really awesome so my vote goes for bmw. Sorry kc.

    Also sal, in inline performance, mercedes kills bmws anytime, anywhere. Even their s600 sedan straight from the showroom is running mid 12s in 1/4mi

    e55 amg uses same supercharged 5.5l v8 from amg s55 irc.

    493 hp @ 6,100 rpm
    516 lb-ft @ 2,750 - 4,000 rpm

    That's prolly why bmw is planning on using a 500hp v10 in their next m5

    I wonder when the v-series sts is going to roll out and compete with those guys

    also cadillac might have lexus in performance dept with the new 320hp northstar engine. We will see when the first xlr gets reviewed

    If I were to buy a new luxury vehicle today my choices would be, in no particular order:

    Cadillac CTS-V
    Infiniti G35 Coupe
    Audi S4 Avant
    BMW M3
    Infiniti FX35


    Mercedes isn't on the list because of their addiction to slush boxes which most of know make a stock car slower.

    Lexus isn't on the list because they have boring looking designs.

    Acura isn't on my list because FWD for a performance vehicle is wrong.

    I think Acura has the most boring designs of all. The NSX is great - but everything else is boring.. The Legend was great...

    Yes, Lexus designs ARE boring... Very... The interiors - on the other hand - are quite appealing...

    I like Mercedes, the one problem being the only one I like is the S-Class, and even the 430 is in the low 70's

    Only coupe Mercedes is car - others are taxis (well, in Europe).
    If we talk about luxury cars, then they are Rolls Royce, Bentley, Cadillac ... long empty place.... and then Mercedes and BMW.
    If we talk about luxury, then we dont speak nothing about Audi
    No hard feelings Audi fans

    Since 1996, Acuras have been kind of like Japanese Buicks. Very bland, weak performance, just quiet, slushy, comfortable. Nothing to really distinguish it from the crowd other than the price.
