I've had my XTS for about a month. Yesterday a young man about 30 years old stopped me as I walked away from my car at Target and asked me how I liked the car and told me how nice it looked. I agreed and thanked him. I told him how much I like all the technology. Another time I was at Costco getting gas and a 40 somthing man driving an SUV asked if that was the new Cadillac and said how nice it looked. I've been driving Cadillacs sincd 2000 and this is the first time I've had people admire the car.

Kudos to Cadillac for designing such an attractive car that is getting attention from a younger group of people. Compliments to the marketing people who are getting the word out about the XTS so it gets noticed.

Has anyone else here gotten feedback on their new car?

Have had my XTS Premium for a couple of months now and have had several such incidences.
My car is Crystal Red and I got the standard 19" wheels chrome plated and put in a E&G Dual Mesh chrome grille.
It looks stunning and does get a lot of looks.

My silver XTS4 Platinum gets compliments all the time.

Yesterday the garage door service man commented on it, right before he hit me with a bill.

Diversionary tactic, I suspected. :)

SilverFox (my Platinum XTS) does receive a lot more unsolicited positive comments than any of my previous STSs. Also have found that 'car enthusiasts' at our Vegas Cars and Coffee Saturday shows are very surprised at how large the interior space and trunk space are, and always impressed with the overall fit and finish. Brings a big smile to my face for sure :cool2:

I'm kind of jealous myself of the new XTS. This is a nice looking vehicle. I absolutely love it. I have a black raven SRX but I would not mine having a black raven XTS. I love my SRX though. Well done Cadillac well done!

Which dealer did you use in Vegas? Any comments about the dealer? I live in NLV and wondering who is the best.

Which dealer did you use in Vegas? Any comments about the dealer? I live in NLV and wondering who is the best. I bought my XTS from Findlay (Gibson Road, Henderson). I have used them since moving to Vegas and been very pleased with their service department (on both my STS and XTS) as well as their sales team. If you need any further details please feel free to PM me. :cool2:

I get comments and compliments all the time on the XTS. The color, the interior, the lighting both inside and out. Also, get alot of comments on my CTS-V coupe.

I bought my car at Morrie's Cadillac in Minneapolis. The dealership is very nice and they offer free carwashes for as long as you own the car. It's winter here and I've been taking my car in nearly every Saturday for a wash. Today the wash was out of order so he sent me to the Morries Ford dealership about a mile away. I pulled into the service bay told them what I wanted and the service runner took my car thorugh the wash. As he brought it back he gave me the key fob and told me what a beautiful car I had. I thanked him and smiled. Yes, another unsoliced compliment.

That is a doubly nice @jeffpaletz: the fact that your dealer gives you free car washes and receiving the compliment!:cool2:

I get compliments all the time - but they're always from men over 60. No problem with that, just giving the full story.
