New to Cadillac with a 2013 XTS

Hello all,

New to the Caddy family. I just purchased a 2013 XTS Premium (Crystal Red tintcoat) with 90k miles.

I came from a 2012 Volvo S60 T5. I went into the dealership looking for something with a better driving experience. The dealer showed me the XTS and I was surprised. I had never looked at Cadillac before (Im in my mid 30s) as they just never appealed to me but the XTS was intriguing. The interior was one of the nicest I've ever seen in a GM product and the technology is what really got me.

The car is a bit underpowered (Or should I say the powerband could be adjusted for more low end power.) but it drives really well for what it is.

Is there anything I should watch out for with these cars? I havent owned a GM product since I was 16 so it's been awhile.

Welcome to the forums, dpatrickv! Glad to hear of your new XTS purchase. I'd just echo what Raven said, if you're looking for a full-size luxury sedan, you've got one of the best on your hands in terms of being as problem-free as possible. Raven hit all the well-known issues on the head.

Also, and maybe of no consequence (but just curious), what was that GM product you had when you were 16? My first car was a 1998 Olds Cutlass, I loved that thing even though nothing worked except the drivetrain lol (no heat/ac, suspension components constantly breaking, brakes always wearing out, electronics eternally having issues, etc). Memories!
