Bruce Nunnally Posted March 28, 2005 Report Share Posted March 28, 2005 Traded my 2004 CTS w/20k miles for a 2005 CTS Friday. Had it back to the Dealer on Saturday to be "readied for customer"/detailed. Base 1SB package, so 3.6L V6 with only automatic transmission and XM radio as options, similar to my 2004. Light Platinum ext, Light neutral interior as before. I like the new wheel design, which has smaller center caps reminiscent of the 98+ STS wheels. The dash gauge layout has been updated a bit on the new car. I like the change. Tinted windows improve the visual appeal of the car. The dealer put on a stripe pattern, which am neutral on. Nice touch that it has a Cadillac crest in the stripe along the fender. New combined antenna looks better than the old antenna did. The XM radio is fun. 176 or so channels. Car comes with 3 month subscription. A yearly subscription is $9/month or so. Rates going up this week, so may subscribe ahead. We like the Folk Music channel, dedicated channels for several of the college sports conferences, comedy channels, and my Wife's favorite, Broadway music channel. Also CNN and other national news, although it should be noted that some of these are audio feeds off their TV program. Otherwise not much to report. Obviously an evolutionary year for the CTS 3.6L, so main changes were offerring new colors, etc. Bruce 2016 Cadillac ATS-V gray/black Follow me on: Twitter Instagram Youtube Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
