Always looking for the next car to buy, Dale Stewart, the bassist for South African rock band Seether, bought his used 2010 Cadillac CTS-V in 2011, and it’s his favorite car to date.

“It’s my first American car,” says the South African-born Stewart, who rates the car an 8. “I think it’s probably the one I enjoy most out of everything and the most practical at the same time. I had a Maserati GranSport before, and the car itself was finicky — I always felt like I was going to break or damage something — so I wanted something I could almost not feel sorry for, a real workhorse.”

Stewart also wanted a car that was still fun but more practical and had trunk space. “I love that giant V-8. It sounds like a monster. I love the way it drives. I love the two personalities — it’s like Jekyll and Hyde. You can cruise along with the AC and the radio on in complete comfort, and then you can go into the mountains and put it in Sport mode and it becomes a sports car. It’s really the best of both worlds for me.”

There are only a few things he dislikes about the car. “On the steering wheel I think they could have paddles on there,” he says. “They could have put a start button instead of this weird key thing because it’s got the electronic key, but that’s just nitpicky. I’m actually incredibly pleased with the car. I’ve been looking around for a long time. This is the longest I’ve ever owned a car.”
