Consumer Reports tested the CTS

Recommended Posts

I just skimmed through my copy of Consumer Reports last night and I saw a real nice photo of a CTS. CR tested entry level luxury cars in their most recent issue.

The first page of the review where they put the overall ratings, Consumer Reports decided to write this half page long caveat about how great the Cadillac is and other recent GM offerings, but how poor the reliability is on GM cars.

The score for the CTS puts it in second behind an Infiniti but the CTS has the worst reliability out of all the cars in the entry level luxury class. The primary complaints that make the car way below average are "squeaky brakes" and "squeeks and rattles in the interior."

Bird cage lining ?

Fish scaling wrapper ?

Something to 'fill out' the garbage can load so you can feel better about maximizing the garbage truck's efficiency (more bulk/weight per can per stop) ??

If CR came out with a full recommendation of an American car, they'd run the risk of offending the purchases of their predominently-import buyer subscribers, who dote on the getting that reaffirmation of their decision with every auto issue. Ahh, the quandry for CR.....
