2008 Cadillac STS Review

A full-size luxury sedan, the 2008 Cadillac STS has a legacy that extends back to its flagship ancestor, the Cadillac Seville. While the STS is offered in three trim levels, the Performance, Luxury, and Platinum editions, most owners choose the rear-wheel-drive 3.6 L V6 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. An AWD 4.6Liter 320hp Northstar V8 is available for more performance-oriented owners.

With all of its great standard features, the 2008 Cadillac STS competes well with its European and Japanese stablemates. A 300 Watt Bose audio unit with MP3 adaptor, rich natural trim, alloy finish edging on the center instrument array attest to the effort that Cadillac has put into crafting a fine luxury automobile. The STS lacks little in the eyes of its owners, but if the inclination arises, you could opt for a heads-up driver information display, or a navigation system.

Technology is a key feature for Cadillac, and the STS employs it in safety features such as a lane drift alert system, a blind spot compensation system, and a more comprehensive skid control system. With the new Cadillac STS Platinum Series, more attention than ever is paid to craftsmanship and quality materials used in the interior. However you drive the STS, its ride, acceleration, and stability are hard to beat. Enjoy all that the road has to offer without appreciable sway, road noise, or difficulty in handling.

2008 Cadillac STS has new exterior features that emulate the Escalade in its large size chrome grille and vertical headlights. You can opt for 18-inch wheels or stick with the 17s. Overall, the STS is a well- engineered automobile that has evolved into a technologically sophisticated, sensible luxury sedan.
