    This is a perfect midsize SUV with legroom in the back seats. We just returned from a road trip and I am extremely happy with its overall performance.

  • Finalists were this and MKX - 2017 Cadillac XT5
    By -

    Have been an Audi owner and drove Q5 and Q3, Lincoln MKC and MKX. Considered X3 but Ive never warmed up to BMW interiors. We loved the XT5 and now even more after having driven 1200 miles. Seats are great, back seat is too, cargo area is plenty big enough. Visibility is surprisingly good with strategic smaller side windows fore and aft. Rides great and we got 33 mpg on a drive to San Diego (per the computer). Got the Luxury trim level as the next steps was +$5k and didnt enthrall me. And dont need AWD in Southern California. Love the ride and the car. Very happy.

    My review of 2017 Cadillac XT5, I came out of a 2013 Lincoln MKX which isn’t exactly a dog. The plus sides of Cadillac XT5 it is quieter almost a eerie quiet. The ride is better, Cadillac has always had that baby buggy ride much softer than the Lincoln. XT5 electric power is the best very smooth with a short turning radius. Possibly one of the best new feathers is the new eight speed automatic transmission Smooth as glass, at eighty miles per hour tach is reading 1950 RPM about 200 less than the Lincoln MKX. Overall Cadillac has a home run on it’s hands, fast smooth and quiet and lets face it knock dead styling. Now go get one.

  • Cadillac XT5 Start/Stop Feature - 2017 Cadillac XT5
    By -

    I think that I am having troubles with the start/stop feature since the car has not turned off in almost 3 weeks and about 1000 miles of driving. I contacted the service dept. at the dealer about 2 weeks ago and the service adviser didnt even seem to know that the XT5 had a no-turn- off start/stop system so he told me to just keep driving. I then called the salesman who told me to drive the car until the weather cooled down to see if it would turn off on its own. Today I visited the dealers service department to make sure that I was not injuring the cat since it does seem to try to turn off at the same intersections that it used to. Todays service adviser printed off reasons that the system does not work and they are the same reasons that I saw long ago on the internet or in the manual. He told me to just drive the car normally and that I would get a warning from the car if something was wrong. He also assured me that there are many XT5s out here and that none has reported a start/stop problem, although he did not bother to check my car.

  • Really fun to drive - 2017 Cadillac XT5
    By -

    I upgraded from a Honda CRV (which was great). However, in this car I feel like a queen. I really like the safety features that tell me that a car or pedestrian is approaching and from where. When there is a danger, the driver seat vibrates that alerts you to look at instruments to see what the problem is. I was disappointed that there is no CD player. CDs may be on the way out, but most of us still have favorite CDs. It would be nice to be able to use them. Also, I was disappointed that no spare tire (unless it is purchased as an addition) or donut was provided. I only received a can of "stuff" to inflate my tire. However, Cadillac does provide excellent roadside assistance so I wont have to purchase that with my insurance. All in all, I am extremely pleased with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone who would like a really neat SUV.

    My previous car was a 2017 Chevy Impala LT with every possible option you could get it was 38k while a premier would be 40k, but after 3 months me and my son couldn’t take it anymore it was the most uncomfortable vehicle I’ve ever had, and I’ve had over 30 so me and my husband went looking for an SUV, we wanted a smaller suv so we looked at several vehicles including a equinox, GMC Terrain and Acadia and a Lexus 300, finally we got to this Cadillac it was the best looking suv I’ve went and looked at and it was very comfortable and all the technology packages and we couldn’t be happier, the XT5 is a very nice mid sized suv, the only thing I don’t like about it is automatic start/stop but it’s one of those things you just got to get over since there putting it on almost all cars suvs and some trucks. But I would highly recommend the XT5

  • Just an okay car, nothing special - 2017 Cadillac XT5

    THERES SOMETHING GOING ON WITH THE SUNROOF. While driving with my sunroof completely open, for some reason it does something to your ears. it feels as if pressure is in your ears. somewhat like flying on an airplane. I thought it was me, but I allowed three friends to drive the car, and they experienced the same feeling. The only way to eliminate the problem is to open a side window. That defeats the purpose of using the sunroof. Its a great looking car, but I wish I had chose something else.

    takes a little while to get used to the operation of dashboard controls after a month I think I have it down not that happy with the shift lever operation but so far I have to say I love this car the lane keeping is very handy although if you take your hands off the steering wheel it tells you do no do that.also it shows you the distance you are from the car ahead of you in seconds but over all i love it a much better car than my old lincoln MKX

  • Great ride - 2017 Cadillac XT5
    By -

    When someone starts gives you how big a seat is in inches, I kind of figure theyre a competitor and not an owner. Ive owned more than a few SUVs in my including the RX (3), Audi (1), a Highlander, an Infiniti and1 other American SUV besides a Caddy. Had a SRX which quite frankly I didnt care for. I now own an XT5 and it is a great car. Transmission is 8 speed so its moving through gears nicely. Blue tooth hookup and what I like is if the phone rings, the A/C gets quieter automatically. I like that there are now more buttons and less of that touch screen. I hated pushing the screen to increase the A/C. Now its a button. The rear view camera can be used as your rear view mirror so if there are people in the back seat, your view will not be blocked. Im 6 foot but not overweight so I find the seats very comfortable. My legs havent fallen asleep while driving. All in all, Im happy with this SUV and I believe it compares favorably with the RX.
