ls430

  1. Bought my 2004 a month ago, I feel so stupid for buying it.

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I need to vent. I sold my Lexus LS430 because in my heart I wanted something that drove like a sports car. I'm crying now for getting rid of such a great car for such a piece of junk. Not only does my V not feel like a sports car, my Lexus driveline was more solid than this car. What kind of...

  3. 2008 CTS 50K Service - Need Advice - Bad pick-up

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    Hi all, My 2008 CTS Premium w/ AWD is at about 48k miles and coming up on that oh so fun 50k mile mark. I don't like getting ripped off at the dealer (and don't mind servicing it elsewhere if you think it's better) but I really want to know what to do. Last time I did my oil change, I changed...
  4. Getting more and more frustrated with my cts.

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    $50,000, '09 CTS, only 3300 miles on the odometer and I'm beginning to get really frustrated with this car. You would think for that price, things would operate correctly each and every time, especially this early on. First of all, my entry/exit settings. Set them up the way I wanted and they...
  5. LS430 - Out of Rehab

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    I decided to buy an 05 or 06 Lexus LS430 for my next daily driver. (It is the best sedan I've ever used to transfer my wife from her wheelchair.) My target vehicle was a custom luxury level (all the goodies except back seat upgrades and air suspension), about 30K miles, in gray (flint mica) or...

  8. Caddilac regional for powertrain/catastrophic issues

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    Has anyone dealt with Cadillac regional regarding powertrain issues beyond the warranty period? Story is below. My Grandmother passed away last fall and owned a 1999 Seville STS. This was new Cadillac number 9 for her. Car was garaged and senior citizen/lady driven for its entire existence...
  9. Your next car?

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    I'm trying to think if we had a thread about this before, but I searched and found nothing, so here goes... What do you see yourself buying next? I really like the idea of an E46 3 Series Sedan....just as long as it's the AWD version...I'd prefer the 330Xi, but the 325Xi would do fine too...
  10. dealer lied about AWD!

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    Hey Everyone. I just bought an 06 SRX, 13,000 miles. Shockingly enough, The dealer lied about it having AWD!! I didn't check it out myself (my bad), and now I'm pretty angry. I have 2 questions. 1. What, if anything can I do with the dealer? Anyone have any experience with this situation? 2. How...
  11. New Daily Driver Coming

    The Cadillac Allante Lounge
    I considered a DTS, Lucerne, and MKS, but the LS430 proved to have the best ergonomics for transferring my wife from a wheelchair and transporting her. I located the car in Washington State, had it checked by a Lexus enthusiast and a local Lexus mechanic, and am having it shipped. The car has...
  12. Alas, no DTS for Me

    Cadillac DTS Forum 2006 through 2012
    The LS430 proved to have the best ergonomics for transferring my wife from a wheelchair and transporting her. Also, the heated seat controls on the door of the DTS were too hard for either of us to reach on her side. I located this 05 LS430 custom luxury in Washington State. It met my target...

    Recently came across some '60's Cadillac Concepts cars. Apparently they were trying to re-ignite the multi-cylinder war of the '30's. ^1963 concept of a V-12 or V-16 Hardtop Coupe. It was only produced in a small scale model. ^1963-'65 Cadillac XP-840 "Experimental" V-16 concept. It...

  15. Pumping Gas?

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum 2010-2016
    Is anyone else having issues when pumping gas into their SRX? My fiance told me that every time she would fill it up she would have to hold the pump up at an angle and could not set the automatic lever. For convenience it is nice to set the pump and stand around without holding the pump or even...
  16. Choose your all time favorite car.

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    If you could only have one car for the next five years what would it be? At my age my automotive requirements have greatly narrowed so it is relatively easy for me to pick one car I would want to live with over the next five years. So if you didn't have to consider maintenance costs or initial...
  17. Reliability of the newer DTS

    Cadillac DTS Forum 2006 through 2012
    I am just soooo glad that I decided to replace my older 2000 DTS (which I loved) with a newer, what I thought would be more reliable 2008 model (which I hate). This morning I was on my way to a doctors appointment when all of a sudden I lost almost all power on the car and the dash started...
  18. This car has to be the worst piece of junk I have ever owned

    Cadillac STS Forum 2005 through 2012
    The longer I own it, the more I HATE this F***ING piece of SH**. Liked for about 3 days after buying :banghead: but that wore away quickly. As mentioned before harsh ride, poor mileage, cramped cockpit. Even though it is a small car it is harder to park than my mid size Roadmaster. Tried to...

    Cadillac STS Forum 2005 through 2012
    I did a quick search with no luck. I know there must have been a discussion at some point , so I appoligize for what I am sure will be a repetitive question: I am looking at possibly getting a CPO 07/08 AWD V8 STS (1SG or 1SF). I know that the 08s have the new front clip, fender vents, the...

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    I know, it's no ESV, but wow. The flat black looks amazing. the grille is from eBay, it was gloss black, now it is flat. The headlights are from eBay too, they look awesome, but they are worse than a solar flash light at night. I want him to Joey mod his oem lights, but he won't. All of the...
