07' Quiet, comfortable, very responsive and I get 27.4mpg @ 65mph (cruise set). Instrumentation easy readout, driver oriented. No clutter, simplicity, but has all the bells and whistles. If you are looking for a great ride look no further. I will buy another one and recommend to all.

A Good Deal

by from Chicago, IL on November 2, 2007

I purchased my DTS used, so I didn't get the priviledge of eating the first years depreciation. It has the Lux I package with some other goodies, but without the Nav, and I couldn't be happier with it. The upcharge for the Nav seems ridiculous when compared to the cost of my portable GPS unit. I test drove an 05 before settling on this one and I can tell you that the 2007 seems superior in every significant way. Fit and finish appears light years beyond the 05 model. As to the old features that have been deleted, I probably would have preferred to skip the extra cost of them had I purchased the car new. I do wish the car had a six speed and a variable displacement engine, but these were not deal killers for me. The exterior styling is close to, but not on a par with, the new CTS. However, that being said, I think Cadillac did an excellent job on the upgraded style. The headlights really frame the front of the car well, and do a very good job do doing what they are supposed to do. It would have been nice to see what a derivative of the new CTS interior would look like in this car, but what it has is just fine. Things to improve: One line display on the non-nav radio; more, and better located, power outlets in front seat area; LED lighting in ashtray ; more storage area in dash and console; change pocket; Six/seven speed transmission; variable displacement engine; and above all split folding rear seats. Since I choose to purchase a gently used car instead of new, I think I received an excellent value and saved myself well over $10K. If you are looking for a good expressway cruiser (which is what I mostly drive), then this car would be a good choice.

The DTS is very tough to beat when it comes to the "ride". While the interior design is great the smooth ride is the best. I rate "performance" good and not excellent because I am not getting the gas mileage I believed I would receive. But, 22 miles per gallon on the fullest of full sized cars isn't something to take strong objection to. Oh yes, and the price for these older Caddy's are right. Get one that has really been cared for and you'll have years of driving happiness.

07 Caddy DTS

by from Philadelphia on December 24, 2012

I have owned Caddys since 59 but this is the best by far. Comfortable, reliable and I get 21 mpg in town and 27 on the road.

Great American car, Nearly 300 HP My MPG is lower than the previous Cadillac, I currently get 18.5 city and 26-28 highway, depends on how fast I drive, Not bad for a full size luxury car with a potent V8, I purchased this used with 30K on it, It was certified to 6/100 bumper to bumper warranty, Its been at the dealer 2 times in the 6 years a ball joint and head light, both covered under warranty, not bad car now has over 111K on it, My wife Loves this car she is spoiled her 2nd Cadillac and she wont drive anything else, We drover other cars and keep going back to Cadillac, a bit more money but not nearly as expensive and the repairs are not as costly.

baby turns heads - 5stars*****

. The black interior/exterior is the best color combination, especially with tented windows. My '07 DTS was the last year you could get a black interior with a black headliner. now the black exterior/interior has a beige headliner. . Do think the carpet is cheap. Previous car was 2001 deville. both caddys are the same length but the 07 DTS is not as wide as my 01 Deville. . Also feel that the deville suspension was better on highway driving but the dts is better in city driving. Dts is very quiet but did immediately notice that a passing car on the highways was noisier than 01 deville.love a/c & heated seats. Remote start is a must Do wish that a/c seats would stay on after car was turned on and restarted. More pros than cons with this car. Another con is the stereo display. It is angled and sometimes the sunlight hits it and u cannot read it easily, even with my tinted windows. . Dealer had2replace new brake pads.but after doing so and during multipoint inspection realized the motor mounts needed 2B replaced. During the repair i recieved Escalade loaner and strongly felt my DTS was a smoother, quieter, ride. The escalade is a truck and drives like one when compared to the DTS. . another issue was waking up 2x’s to a dead battery. dealer tested battery and both times test revealed battery was fine. the dead battery has never happened again. Some paint colors do look odd given the bright red colored lens on bumper. Luv the led tail lights. Never have to worry bout the dreaded bulb going out since there are something like 50 led lights on the back of the car including the lighted brake light strip on trunk lid. Luv the way they redesigned the trunk/bumper/back of car and dropped the license plate to the bottom of the bumper as opposed to the deville which had the license plate in the middle area of trunk lid. . Also like the way they choose to display the DTS letters. . The designers really did thier homework when redesigning the new DTS. The DTS is better built than the previous model/Deville. The quality of materials, craftsmenship, and durabilty of the DTS is refreshing to see in a Cadillac. Sad to see it go, along with the northstar engine. Oh also noticed windshield is not as thick as the old one and will chip easier from rocks on the highway.Could also be the angle of the windshild since the Dts is more aerodynamic than the deville. the DTS weighs the same as ‘01Deville, Gas mileage was improved by a few gallons by shortening the width and changing the angle of the windshield. Also the frame on body has changed.. I just love driving hwy speeds with a little rain and not having to turn on windshield wipers cause the aerodynamics push the rain right off of windshield. Do miss my rear wheel drive deville. The dts having front wheel drive has definitely effected the turning radius of this car. Deville was a wider car but had a smaller turning radius due to it being a rear wheel drive. Maybe after cadillac sees the lack of intrest in the XTS (due to replace the STS/Deville in spring 2012) they will redesign the XTS and bring back a DTS thats not based on the XTS platform. Something about Cadillac and size satisfy my hunger. The XTS being smaller than the current DTS is a turnoff to me. AS you can read i love my Caddy and know my black beauty very well. Great car, turns heads, small minor issues, nothing that ever makes me want to trade her in. Still on the fence about the DTS replacement. Between the big three luxury brands i say Cadillac DTS all the way. ANd contrary to what i have read on reviews about cars, my dts was a rental/fleet vehicle. Some people run from these cars. The DTS is built to last. People need to remember that rental/fleet vehicles undergo extensive maintanence and are kept for a very short time before being sold to the public. Being a rental/fleet vehicle is a testiment to the durabiliy of the Cadillac DTS. cha-ching$!$!$!$!

OK, I've owned a few different cars and trucks. This time round, I went for the 2007 Cadillac DTS with the Luxury 1 package. Good rebates, good price. Dealership treated me well. They say it's tailored to the older driver, well, I think GM has done a good thing here, and it also attracts the younger 30 something driver as well. It's not a boat any more - it oozes luxury as well as a surprising performance package. Handles well, I'm seeing 27MPG at 80MPH on the freeway - every day. Much better than my last vehicle, and this one is way nicer. Seats are very comfortable. My wife and son both love the car - in fact I think I'm in danger of losing it at times!!! Touch screen in front dash is a must. Great for XM, CD, Radio etc. Complaints - AC in seats is not very powerful - I live in Arizona. Come on guys, fix that problem.... Also, drivers seat is just a little bit too far from the door to rest your arm comfortably on the arm rest. Auxilliary 12V power - not enough accessible outlets. Figure cell phone, radar detector, plus one other, and I'm one of those smokers - need more outlets. Cup holders - can't hold a big gulp - and I don't want to stain the nice leather. Overall, great car. Next time, I'll get the best one available though with all the goodies.

If fuel economy is your ownly concern, discontinue looking at Cadillac. BUT, make no mistake, the Northstar V-8 does very well thank you! Our non-interstate driving averages 20-22 and at 75 mph on the "big road" we average 26 (take or give a couple of tenths). Like most Cadillacs, the ride is TREMENDOUSLY SMOOTH (we are not in to high speed cornering so can't talk about that) with plenty of room even for individuals such as myself who are a bit more "portly" than I should be. Interior detail is strong on quality and eye appealing. Flexability in using the heated & cooled seating (or both at the same time!) is a comfort feature no car should be without! Windshield and side window design allows for superior visibility - nice safety feature. We could go on but I think you get the picture. Yes, we purchased used (Certified) but honestly feel the quality in our DTS matches the midsized SUV models new we had been looking at. Do not make the mistake of overlooking Cadillac as a viable option. Finally, if more than one individual is to drive your Cadillac on a regular basis, make certain your unit has memory seats. What a wonderful feature!
