    If you like the CTS, you'll love ______?

    I like driving my 03 CTS, but I'm getting rid of it. Its been terribly unreliable. Just got finished replacing the crankshaft sensor at 90k miles and I see that the left rear axle seal is leaking (replaced the right rear seal under warranty at 30k miles). Have replaced the air cond. comp., the variable steering adjust solenoid, and the PCV valve system.

    So my question is, what car would be comparable to a CTS but that isn't made by Cadillac?

    if i was to get a sedan after the CTS, (not made by cadi), i'd probably consider the audi s4, charger srt8, bmw 5 series (stretch )

    Nothing compares to the CTS. Nothing else copares to Cadillac. I think you just wound up with a bad one.All makes have lemons. I would consider an STS if not the 07 CTS,just my opinion.Good luck.

    Its not even a matter of it being a lemon imo, the car has 90k+ miles on it, parts dont last forever and as the car ages more and more will need to be replaced, its only natural. I have an 03 with under 60k on it so you must be driving the sh!t out that car, even more reason for parts to start failing.

    If not a Caddy, I'd probably look very hard at a Maxima. That's a lot of car for the money. That being said, I'd rather have the '08 CTS...YAY!!! :LittleB:

    What? Is a Nissan Maxima the same as an '08 CTS?? Not hardly. The '08 is the ALL NEW CTS. Where have you been?

    Had a 96 Maxima for ten years and loved it. But rear wheel drive or AWD is where its at. So if it cant be a Caddy I'd say Audi A-4,Benz C-280 or Infiniti G Sedan

    Actually, I wouldn't have another car...but the OP was asking about cars. My next vehicle will likely be another pickup truck. No way in hell would I ever buy a Chrysler product. NFW.

    Re: If you like the CTS, you'll love ______?

    Say what you will, and i know you will, my girl just got a X-type Jag. Aside from it being smaller and a little less comforable, i like it alot. Almost got one while searchin' for my next car. X-type, C-class, 3-series and A-4's all the same price give or take. Glad i got my Caddy, but the others offer there own positives.
