My 08 CTS is about 7 weeks old, has less than 1,500 miles and the driver's beige leather seat has a large wrinkle, the leather is kind of loose. It looks similar to that in the Cadillac forums website:
I didn't have any other problem with the car; I donít know if that loose leather seat problem worth the trip to the dealer. I wonder if GM would replace the seat; I new from past experience if they try to fix it they'll make it less durable.
Anybody experiences loose driver's leather seat?

I had the same thing happen to me, also from a black belt. I had to take the car to an upholstery shop to try to remove the stains. This again, is why I just bought a CTS with a black interior. I don't want to have to woryy about what I am wearing.

It is very common for the seat cushion leather to stretch out on Cadillacs. It happened on my '04 CTS and my '06 STS. Both times I was told this was normal. Cadillac will not replace it. It doesn't look good and it shouldn't happen.

Since the modified EPA estimates are lower, my "spread" should be increasing, not decreasing.
#2660 of 2880 Cadillac CTS TV ads with price
Oct 20, 2008 (12:45 pm)
These ads show $42,850 and $30,995 and seem to represent prices after all rebates, incentives, etc. for a well equipped model and a strictly base model. Doesn't indicate 2008 or 09 and no MSRP. What are they really saying? How do these compare to "employee pricing" featured a few weeks back?

not sure about the ad.....I purchased an 09 CTS during the employee pricing plan offering....it was fully loaded...less AWD and I chose the base engine vice the DI engine.....MSRP was over 49K and my price was just at 42K before tax title and tags.....hope this helps

Just read an article that mentioned that GM was scrapping the introduction of the CTS coupe to save money. Also delaying the new Buick Lacrosse from this year to sometime next year to save money.

Later similar ads list CTS MSRP as $37,165 with Employee price as $33,681 less fact discount of $2,686 for sale price of $30,995. That is an attractive discount on what must be very basic car; but local Sacto dlrs have low inventory of 09s, none with the 300hp 6 and none with MSRP below 42K

This discount is only on the 1SA model. It is not availble with the DI engine. I just bought it and the car is great. The 263hp engine has more than enough power and is very smooth. There are big additional discounts if you are coming out of a lease, and you can use your GM card rewards. All dealers in South Florida have these in stock and they are heavily advertising them in the local newspapers.
#2665 of 2880 CTS Coupe Delay
Oct 25, 2008 (12:13 pm)
I cannot believe that after all the hoopla and spy shots Cadillac is delaying the intro of the CTS Coupe. I've been waiting almost two years (since they first hinted there would be a coupe) . Now I'm very concerned that GM may truly be having the kind of financial problems that could put them under. It doesn't make sense to me that a maker of luxury automobiles would delay an introduction based solely on the economy, there must be more to it. I'm affected by the economy but I was going to buy that car no matter what, now I'm not so sure.
