Pros

Spacious; luxurious; quiet and technology laden with available all-wheel drive


Model Highlights

Cadillac is obviously banking on the myriad of technological features available on the XTS to sell the cars. The interior is the largest benefactor of this technology with Cadillac choosing to introduce its CUE information and media control module on the brand new car. CUE, which stands for "Cadillac User Experience" features an 8 inch touch screen set in the center stack that functions similarly to an iPad. It is able to respond to touch gestures as well as voice commands and utilizes much of the same technology as the before mentioned iPad. In fact so close is the association, that Cadillac is giving every customer who purchases a 2013 XTS a complementary iPad as part of the deal. Cadillac has even gone so far as to design a CUE app for the iPad, further integrating it into the car.

Also unique among luxury sedans is Cadillac's magnetic dampening system. Normally seen on much more exotic sports cars, magnetic dampening uses magnets in conjunction with tiny pieces of metal in the shock absorbers to adjust shock stiffness and ride on the fly, producing both a quiet ride and surprisingly good handling for a luxury car.

The Cadillac XTS is available in four different trims: Standard, Luxury, Premium and top of the line Platinum. All-wheel drive is available on any of the top three models and adds a couple of thousand dollars to the price of the vehicle.

Though the base model XTS has to make do with being labeled the "standard" edition, it is still very well equipped, with a long list of standard items. This list includes exterior details such as 19-inch wheels, HID xenon headlights and a roof mounted antenna, as well as interior accoutrements like an 8 speaker Bose sound system, parking assist, leather seating and a 10-way power adjustable driver's seat.

Stepping up to the luxury edition will net several improvements and open up the option of having all-wheel drive. Lighting is improved with daytime running lights and improved interior lighting, while the front seats now feature thigh adjustments. A rear view back up camera and nicer 19-inch wheels round out the important differences between the Standard and Luxury trim.

The Premium edition adds a navigation system, an uprated 14-speaker Bose sound system and a trick LCD instrument cluster that can be reconfigured and customized to the buyers' tastes.

The top of the line Platinum edition adds 20-inch wheels, a power sunroof and sunshades for back seat occupants. The front fascia of the Platinum edition car has also been subtly modified to set it apart from lesser versions of the XTS.

The XTS is a thoroughly modern car, and the safety features speak for themselves. The standard host of anti-lock brakes, traction control and stability control are all present, as are dual stage front airbags, side impact airbags, curtain airbags and knee airbags. A driver awareness package is also available, which includes features like Lane Departure Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Side Blind Zone alert. The Driver Assist Package takes things one step further adding adaptive cruise control and Automatic Collision Preparation, to the list of safety features.


Model News

The XTS is a brand new car for 2013. It is big and roomy, rides wonderfully and has technology to spare. It is designed to carry five passengers and their luggage in quiet comfort for long periods of time. Though it's not a sports sedan, modern technology still allows the XTS to handle well and deliver good performance from its V6 engine.


Value Writeup

Starting at just under $45,000, the XTS competes with midsized luxury sedans from European manufacturers like BMW, Audi and Mercedes. Though there is some price overlap with Cadillac's own CTS, the cars are very different in character, with the CTS being significantly more performance oriented. In contrast the XTS offers more interior room and cargo space, both than the CTS and its European competitors. Available all-wheel drive across all model lines increases practicality and fits well with all the other new technologies available on the XTS.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 Cadillac XTS vehicles manufactured February 14, 2012, through March 7, 2014. In the affected vehicles, a cavity plug on the brake booster pump connector may dislodge allowing corrosion of the brake booster pump relay connector.

Consequence
The corrosion of the brake booster pump relay connector may cause a resistive short and melt the connector, increasing the risk of a fire.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will apply sealant to the connector cavity plugs, re-route the vacuum pump vent hose and replace the front body wiring harnesses as needed, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Cadillac at 1-866-982-2339. GM's number for this recall is 14062.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2013-2015 Cadillac XTS vehicles manufactured February 14, 2012, to August 22, 2014, and 2014-2015 Chevrolet Impala vehicles manufactured November 5, 2012, to September 2, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the electronic parking brake piston actuation arm may not fully retract causing the brake pads to stay partially engaged.

Consequence
Brake pads that remain partially engaged with the rotors may cause excessive brake heat that may result in a fire.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will update the electronic parking brake software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in September 2014. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, or Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006. GM's number for this recall is 14471.

Summary
General Motors is recalling certain model year 2013 Cadillac XTS vehicles manufactured from October 12, 2011, through August 30, 2012, for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 202, "Head Restraints."
