Im doing a marketing policy and problems case on the cadillac CTS for my Marketing capping class at Marist College.

I need some info from those of you who bought a CTS.

I was wondering:

1. Why did you buy it?
2. Who are you? age? sex? income? occupation? location?
3. What other cars were you considering?
4. What made you choose the CTS? TV add? Print add?
5. Have you had any reliability issues/problems with your car?
6. On a scale on 1-10, how satisfied are you withy your CTS? 1 being least, 10 being most.

this is a very important project. I would appreciate any comments you have and as much info as you can give me. You can private message me the anwers or email them to [email protected] if you do not want to post personal data on here. All information will be confidential.

1. I bought it because i was looking for a smooth quiet ride with a very appealing look that makes people stop and stare at my car
2. I am ASIAN! WOOO!!!! College student, Male, income is 45k a year, supervisor , MD
3. I looked at the Lexus IS250AWD and Infiniti G35x and the Lincoln MKZ but LOVED the CTS more
4. I chose the CTS cause it had a very appealing look and not many people around here have it :)
5. when i first bought it i had brake problems and some dents but it wasnt a major problem still drives like a champion
6. 9.0 on satisfied could use more stock HP and a slightly smoother ride but overall its very good

does that answer your question?

1. Why did you buy it? Because i wanted RWD, luxury , comfortable, sporty 4dr vehicle, that looked great from factory so i wouldnt mod(but i modded it....)
2. Who are you? age? sex? income? occupation? location? Male, 27, canada, i am your teacher and i told you to keep away from my cadillac, i wont let you drive it!!!
3. What other cars were you considering? looked at the G35 and G35X,but nothing elase really interested me at the time, but did almost buy a Envoy SLT, but it sold on my way to get it, then went back to buy the Yukon SLT and it sold while i was trying to get the envoy... i guess it worked out for the best. but i still want a bigger truck for winter
4. What made you choose the CTS? TV add? Print add? none of those reasons...it was just the car,although if it was the identical car and parts but made by toyota i wouldnt have given it a second look.
5. Have you had any reliability issues/problems with your car?every car has its quirks , some things GM should have recalled like the tranny lines, headlight housings...but overall a great car.
6. On a scale on 1-10, how satisfied are you withy your CTS? 1 being least, 10 being most. i would say about 8 or 9... theres nothing else im interested in having in this class of vehicle, but there is always room for improvement
