"Fun everyday car"4.0 starson by Neutrocuted
Pros: Power, sweet transmission and plenty of control
Cons: Differential noise, wheel hop and goofy sunroof
Summary: I've had my 3.6L 2004 CTS for 2 years and have had a few problems with it. I enjoy the performance of the engine and trans combo... especially in sport mode. I switched to 18" wheels w/225-45 rubber which made a world of difference in handling and control without bouncing down the street with rock hard springs.
I was surprised with the excellent... not superior, fit and finish and have learned to enjoy the styling.
I test drove many different cars in the same price range, new and used, and found this to be the best performer out there.
I love rear drivers for performance driving, but don't let anyone tell you different... they really suck in the snow.
I had to buy Yokohama Ice Guard snow tires to mount on my original rims which helped a little, but not much.
For my dollars it was the best thing going at the time of my purchase and still love driving it.
