If you haven't already, look at the top of this page for "What is this discussion about" and click on the "Cadillac CTS" link. There are several topics related to the CTS that you might find useful, but the one not to miss is "CTS Engine Problems."
Lots of people really love their CTSs, but a significant number are having "issues related to sudden excessive oil consumption and resulting engine failure.

I have had an '05 and an '09 CTS. I have enjoyed both of them. I drove the '05 50,000 and I have driven the '09 30,000. Don't buy it. It is not a car that you want to drive with that many miles. Your Lexus is one thing, but the Cadillac is a different one. You are headed for engine problems and who knows what else.

I just purchased a 2012 Cadillac CTS without Navigation. I'm fairly good with new technology, but can't seem to find anyway to download my HTC Droid Smartphone's phonebook to the cars bluetooth. I manually entered 30 telephone numbers, but that doesen't satisfy me. My Volvo (which is behind in technology compared to the Caddy) instantly downloaded the phonebook. Any suggestions?

on the CTS, how did you manually enter, via a keypad or via voice-command ?
and how is it done on the Volvo. Just via keypad somehow, without any audio capability of speaking the numbers, right?
A reason I ask is:
(it's no caddy, but on my 2011 chevy cruze no-nav, I enter them via voice-command - there's no way for the car to know how my voice speaks the numbers without me programming the name for each one audibly.)

I used voice command on CTS - there is no keypad. On the Volvo the phone book is instantly downloaded and I can use the keypad from the radio to retrieve any number.

thanks.. sounds identical to the base/no-nav setup on my 2011 cruze. i too would like the feature you mentioned that your volvo has. i've actually kept the onstar subscription since it provides the turn-by-turn nav without the nav option. evidently all new GM cars have the turn-by-turn nav software, whether or not you order the nav option.
#6593 of 6595 CTS V elec. issues and seat stuck

I purchased a new 2012 CTS V and love it , however, seems to have electrical issues. The dashboard shut off and car would not start for 10 min. Took to dealer and NPF and has not happened again. However, the drive seat is stuck all the way back and will not move. This was intermittent from day 1 and now stuck for a month. Will take to dealer tomorrow.
I was wondering if anyone else w/a newer CTS V has had similar issues?

I have been around a lot of V's in my time and I have not seen anything quite like you are describing. Hopefully your Cadillac dealership can diagnose and fix the problem (I am assuming it is still under warranty being a 2012). Keep us updated.
