Use the owner's manual to find the CTS jacking points and this video to see additional jacking tips to help minimize the risk of injury. The best way to avoid injury is to never get under your vehicle while it is jacked up, especially if you don't have jack stands positioned in the jack stand points on your CTS. Remember also, that even if your car is jacked up properly, another car could hit it and knock it over; therefore, be sure to give careful consideration to your environment before raising your car.
