A Great Car

by from Jackson, Tn on March 21, 2010

Good room for a guy over 6 ft. Sits comfortably. Drives easily. I hear more road noise than I did in my Mercedez. Cruise control does not govern speed downhill, have to use breaks. Otherwise, comfort ...
Good room for a guy over 6 ft. Sits comfortably. Drives easily. I hear more road noise than I did in my Mercedez. Cruise control does not govern speed downhill, have to use breaks. Otherwise, comfort and value excellent.

We purchased a 06 DTS Performance package, loaded with heated & cooled / memory seats /bose 6-cd changer /sun roof/ power sun shade/ Performance package has only 17 more H/P than the other DTS however it really shows, the large 18" chrome wheels and wide tires handles very well. and plenty of power this car is so smooth on the highway you glide at 85 MPH and this car does not float with body roll, Solid car beautiful looks and comfort, watch the speed as this car easily rolls at 80+ mph and you dont realize it, very quiet no road or outside noise my neighbor has a 07 Lexus and admits he likes this car much better and will likely trade to a Cadillac, his Lexus looks like a fancy Camry. My DTS Performance dont look like a fancy impala this car is the best car we have over owned 1-trip to the dealer for warranty item and that was tire pressure monitor thats it in 44,382 miles.

I've owned many luxury cars over the years, but for the money, the DTS tops them all. It has incredible luxury, great performance, quality workmanship and PHENOMENAL gas mileage! I routinely get 25 MPG on the road. Detroit is NOT what it used to be... and that's GOOD!!!

Comfort,ride,handling,features,room,visibility and power are just some of the quality that the DTS oozes.What a great value compared to the competetion.Who knew that Cadillac had truly reinvented itself.What an unbelievable driving and ownership experience.This coming from a person with an eagle eye and high standards. This Cadillac is what you expect from GM,the best of the best. Good job!P.S. Love Onstar and hands free phone too.Makes me feel safe.

People that jump in imports without looking at what GM has accomplished with this vehicle are making a huge mistake. Excellent driver - tremendous value - great performance - super quality. Just a great all around car that does so many things well. Engineers are going to be challenged to improve so they'll probably just re-style the body and add some electronic gadgets. Do yourself a favor and test drive.

My wife loves it. Cadillac's 4.6-liter Northstar V-8 comes in a choice of two configurations in the DTS. The L37 edition produces an estimated 291 horsepower at 5,600 rpm, while the LD8 is rated at 275 hp at 5,200 rpm. The L37 is designed to rev higher, while the LD8 emphasizes quick launches and has greater peak torque. Both engines work with a four-speed-automatic transmission

Like the heated & cooled seats. Love the Remote start & the fact that it turns on the seats,either hot or cold depending on temp. The adaptive cruse control works great, & if you just turn it on but don't set the speed, it acts as a crash avoidence sys. The massaging seats up front are always on, we love them. HID lights are what we need in the winter up here. The heated steering wheel heats up fast & feels great, just wish the whole wheel,(360*) would heat up. Not just about 30* around 9AM, & 3PM. Wish the Nav system would work in Alaska. Wish there was a 6 disk CD changer w/ the Nav sys. The DVD works great.
