: 2004 vs. 2005

04-13-06, 12:33 AM
Hello All,

I have a 2001 Catera that is at the end of its warranty this November. I am thinking of picking up a used 2004 CTS-V.

The Cateras had a ton of problems, especially with the early models. Things got better with the 2000s and 2001s. But, even those model years had their issues.

After owning a Catera, I am a little concerned about Cadillac reliability.

How reliable is the 2004 CTS-V?

Are there any issues with the 2004 CTS-V that would justify paying more for the 2005 CTS-V? In other words, were many of the bugs in the 2004 worked out with the 2005 model?

I thank you for your time and your comments.

'04 and '05 are basically the same car. no differences really to speak of both mechanical and visual. go to reed's cadillac.faq site for specifics.
