Talking Cars with Consumer Reports #27: Models to Avoid
When you're spending your hard-earned money on a car, we think you deserve a good one - and some models are better than others. This episode focuses on those models we think you should avoid, presented by category. Don't confuse this with a list of the "worst cars." Cars like the BMW 7-Series and Ford Taurus certainly aren't among the worst cars out there, but they are bad choices within their respective market segments. As with the other shows, this episode will also be available through the iTunes store and SoundCloud.

Audi A8 review | Consumer Reports
Satisfying to drive, the A8 combines a luxurious interior, sure-footed handling, and high-tech features. Fuel economy is surprisingly good. Free Fuel Economy Guide: http://bit.ly/MFvMbL





2013 Ford Taurus SHO first drive from Consumer Reports
The sporty Ford Taurus SHO packs a twin-turbo punch and has different suspension tuning than the regular Taurus. Too bad it suffers from Taurus shortcomings, with a cramped interior and complicated controls.

2014 Cadillac XTS Vsport Test Drive Video Review - 410 HP Twin-Turbo 3.6 Liter V-6
http://www.autobytel.com/cadillac/xts/2014/?id=32972 The Vsport is the hot-rod version of the 2014 Cadillac XTS but you wouldn't know it just by looking at the car. The real magic lives under the hood though with a twin-turbo V-6 engine on hand that produces 410 horsepower. Base price on the 2014 Cadillac XTS Vsport is $62,095. On the inside the interior of the XTS Vsport is one of the nicest interiors Cadillac has ever done. The soft-touch materials are great and the fit and finish is light years beyond the Cadillac cars of old. In the center stack is Cadillac's CUE screen which is one of the best infotainment systems on the market. The backseat is giant and quite comfortable. The driving experience is just ok. The power is there but the suspension is not up to par. The XTS does have the Magnetic Controlled Suspension but this does not make for an exciting driving experience. The 2014 Cadillac XTS Vsport is just a big car with mediocre handling. See More Car Videos http://www.autobytel.com/car-videos/?id=32972 Join Our Facebook Page http://www.facebook.com/autobytel





2014 Cadillac CTS 2.0T Review and Road Test
Check out more videos: http://vid.io/xqoB Upcoming reviews: http://vid.io/xqxl Best cars in 2014: http://vid.io/xqxe It's been decades since Cadillac produced the "Cadillac" of anything. However, when car buffs dismiss the only American luxury brand left, they fail to see Cadillac's march forward. 2002 brought the first RWD Cadillac since the Fleetwoood. A year later the XLR roadster hit, followed in 2004 by Cadillac's first 5-Series fighter, the STS. Not everything was rosy. The original CTS drove like a BMW but lacked charm and luxury fittings. The XLR was based on a Corvette, which made for excellent road manners, but the Northstar engine didn't have the oomph. The STS sounded like a good idea, but the half-step CTS wasn't much smaller and ultimately shoppers weren't interested in a bargain option. That brings us to the new ATS and CTS. Ditching the "more car for less money" mantra, the ATS has been created to fight the C/3/IS leaving the CTS free to battle the E/5/GS head-on. Can Caddy's sensible new strategy deliver the one-two punch fans have hoped for? I snagged a CTS 2.0T for a week to find out. I found the outgoing CTS a little discordant, but 2014 brings an elegant more aggressive refresh. GM's Art and Science theme has matured from "cubism gone wrong" to shapes that flow and jibe with a larger grille and softer creases. The 5-Series continues to go for elegant and restrained, I find the XF and A6′s design a mixture of plain-Jane and snazzy headlamps while the Infiniti Q5o and Lexus GS are going for flowing elegance. The demur side profile continues with a simple character line to draw your eye from front to rear. One thing you'll notice during that eye-movement is the distinct RWD proportions that separate the CTS, E, 5, GS, XF and Q50 from the long-nosed Audi A6 and near-luxury FWD options. Out back the CTS' rump is a bit less exciting but employs all the latest luxury cues from hidden Exhaust tops to light piped tail lamps. I was hoping Caddy's fins would be further resurrected, but the "proto fins" on the XTS are absent. Pity. Obvious from every angle is an attention to build quality absent from earlier generations with perfect panel gaps and seams. Unfortunately, the first thing you'll notice out on the road is the coarse sound from under the hood. GM's 2.0L engine is no less refined than BMW or Mercedes' four-bangers, but the difference is you can hear the engine in the CTS. In fact, based on the overall quietness of the cabin (a competitive 67 dB at 50 MPH), I can only conclude that Cadillac designed the engine to be heard. I don't mind hearing the 3.6L V6, but most luxury shoppers would prefer not to be reminded they chose the rational engine every time they get on the freeway. On the bright side, because GM does not offer start/stop tech, shoppers are spared the inelegant starts and stops that characterize 528i city driving. While I'm picking nits, the 6-speed found in the 2.0T and most 3.6 models lacks the ratio spread and shift smoothness of the ZF 8-speed automatic found in most of the competition. The reason I label those flaws as mere nits is because of how the CTS accomplishes every other task on the road. Acceleration to 60 happens a 4/10ths faster than an E350, a half-second faster than the 528i, a full second faster than a GS350, and practically years ahead of the A6 2.0T. Part of this has to do with the engine's superior torque curve and higher horsepower numbers, but plenty has to do with curb weight. At 3,616 lbs, the CTS 2.oT is 200lbs lighter than the BMW or Lexus, 400lbs lighter than an E350. The comparable Audi A6 would be the front-wheel-drive 2.0T model with the CVT at 3,726. If you think that's an unfair comparison, the 2.0T with Quattro is 3,900lbs and does little to correct the A6′s front-heavy weight balance.





2013 Cadillac XTS Review
Huge luxury without the huge price tag, XTS wows with technology http://www.autoguide.com/manufacturer/cadillac/2013-cadillac-xts-review-vid eo-2027.html Cadillac's return to large luxury comes with an inherent gamble, that Americans want to buy, and will continue to want to buy, large luxury machines. With compact cars now outselling mid-size ones, there seems to be no evidence to support this plan. Then again, perhaps the luxury segment is different.

2013 Cadillac XTS Walkaround Car Review Video with Lead Designer Christine Park
Autobytel spent an afternoon with Cadillac Lead Designer Christine Park who is responsible for the brilliant interior design featured on the XTS. The 2013 Cadillac XTS is an all new full size luxury sedan from the American luxury brand. The XTS is poised to wear the crown as the most technologically sophisticated vehicle in the Cadillac stable. Besides an array of advanced features; the XTS offers tons of interior room, luxury amenities, dynamic performance, and an elegant exterior design. The new Cadillac XTS will be replacing the outdated STS and DTS full-size sedans. The 2013 Cadillac XTS is positioned one level about the current CTS in terms of size and price. The XTS is built upon the General Motors Epsilon II platform. The driver compartment has a sleek elongated look that not only looks great but allows for a large amount of interior space. The overall shape of the XTS is crisp and tailored and the character lines down the sides look stunning. Up front there is a bold chrome grille that screams Cadillac as it grabs your attention. The wheels are 19-inch chrome pieces with 20-inch wheels offered on the Platinum Edition. The 2013 Cadillac XTS will come in 3 different trim levels: Luxury, Premium, and Platinum. The interior of the XST is not only spacious as previously mentioned but down right beautiful. Cadillac customers demand a very high level of luxury and quality and the XTS continues that tradition. The XTS will be the first vehicle equipped with the revolutionary CUE infotainment center. See more info on the CUE below. The XTS features leather trim and wood accents everywhere. The Head-Up Display features color readouts. The music chores are carried out by a top of the line Bose Studio surround sound system. Besides the vast amount of luxury features and options, the XTS is packed with the latest safety technology.

2013 Cadillac XTS: 4 Guys In A Car review
Yup, it's the new Cadillac flagship. Or is it? Well, we had a bit of an argument—is the biggest Cadillac the flagship, or is it more than that now? That said, tech has been poured into the XTS, and it can do some amazing things. We liked it.
