Cadillac considers the STS the best luxury sedan they’ve ever made-- and they’re not wrong. Traditional Caddy buyers will be pleased with their new whip. But any Cadillac exec that thinks the STS’ has enough ride, handling or comfort to lure buyers out of their bombing Bimmers, massive Mercs and liquid Lexi did too many mind-altering substances in the 70’s. More worryingly, the STS lacks sufficient sizzle to delight the Brothers. If Caddy wants to maintain its current momentum, they need to stop chasing Eurostyle and, like Chrysler did with their gangsta-rrific 300C, get down with their bad selves.

What a joke! They obviously "got into" that car with the notion and stereotype that they hated it anyway. The STS would be my first choice for a new car that one could afford for a luxury car. Perhaps they should talk about Mercedes Benz electronics, or the sludge problem in certain Totota/Lexus.

Cadillac was criticized when they didn't make handling cars like the Europeans, and they are still criticized when they do put out competitive product. Go figure! :helpless:

Like they did with the Bently? That is the dumbest more ignorant comment on the 300c i'v ever herd.

"Ironically, the bangin’ V8 actually makes the STS experience slightly worse. By eliminating the constant sense of wonder at the V6 engine’s lack of grunt, you’re free to contemplate the STS’ full monotony. It’s like taking a stone out of your shoe and finding yourself in a paper clip museum. Or, even worse, a very expensive rental car. "

wow...v8 too powerful, v6 not enough,

this guy cannot be pleased by anything whatsoever



wait nevermind i guess a pt cruiser can please him more than a sts

What a wanker!!!

He talks about European styling,...well...I'm European and I've never seen anything like the new STS or CTS over here!!!!

I believe Cadillac are on the right track, their latest cars handle like European cars but still remain distinctively American

This author/reviewer should not be taken seriously. " The brothers won't like the car". Come on !

The STS is a world class car that does in fact " Break Through" with its wonderfully original style that no other car in the world can match. I personally feel for real world driving the STS is the best luxury /sport sedan on the market.

:thumbsup:

I'm offended by this dude's comments about what the brothers want. This ******* doesn't have a clue what brothers or any other race of people want. In fact his dum ass should not have brought it up in the first place. Because I'm a brother and loving my STS along with all the rest of the brothers where I live wanting one.

Gee whiz, I'm white as they come and thought this review was racist..."what the brother' wants"..."gang bangers" What is this guy thinking? and where does he get off speaking about what appeals to the brothers?

I'm wondering if he ever even drove the car? Journalist...what a joke. To be a journalist, one needs to be objective. He founded the site. Rates every single car he's reviewed higher than the STS.

I said this in another post...I'll say it again...of all the caddies I've owned I have never gotten more compliments from young men 16-22 range, than I have with my 05 STS. In fact I have gotten more in the first three months with this car than I have with the other 7 combined, one of which is an Escalade! This I report with surprise...and objectivity!

Its no secret that Cadillac uses the Hip/Hop community and Movie starts to help make there vehicles appeal to the masses. You can read any major review and they always have private shows for Hollywoods heavy hitters. They are smart, cause they throw it in a music video and ever kid wants one and points them out to there parents like it going out of style.

If you do not agree then why is Cadillac Escalade offered with 22 from the factory now and with the option of aftermarket fabrics? They want to remove the aftermarket and offer it direct from the factory.
