Reviews for Cadillac DTS
07 Cadillac DTS Performance Pkg.
This is the 48th car I have owned since I started driving in 1971. It is by far the nicest car I have had to date, and those include BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi and other Cadillacs. It's not just one thing in particular about the DTS, it's the entire package. It is powerful, rides extremely well, handles very well, is sublimely comfortable and quiet, and it gets pretty decent fuel economy considering it is a fairly heavy car with a powerful 292 hp V-8 engine. (A recent ride in the country resulted 24 mpg). Genuine wood on the dash, console and steering wheel as well as supple air-conditioned, massaging leather seats are other luxury items that I think are awesome. The Cadillac also has, in my opinion, a presence on the road and history that few other cars can match. It is a car one can be very proud to own, and I also like the fact that it is made right here in the USA! And as far as what you get for the price, the Cadillac is a "bargain" when you consider the price-point of other luxury cars. I am looking forward to many miles of motoring pleasure in my newly acquired Cadillac DTS.
Its a Caddy
My first car was a 1955 Cadillac. The car had been in my family since it was new and I was its 4th owner. That was 1966. I always wanted another one. The car is luxury on wheels. It is powerful and it is beautiful. By today's standards, it probably is a bit of a gas guzzler but I don't think it is. I will be using it mostly for highway driving and usually get 25+ miles per gallon on regular gas. I highly recommend the car to anyone who wants or needs a large car.
Luxury and Quality at a Reasonable Price
I have a 2007 DTS with Luxury III package. Northstar V-8 pulls strong and provides reasonable mileage on the highway. Handling is fine for such a big car. Very safe car for road trips with a family of four plus all of our gear. Rear seat room is great, and trunk is huge. Enjoying all the luxury features such as auto-dimming high beams, heated/cooled seats, rear sunshade, power folding side mirrors, rear vanity mirrors, heated rear seats, satellite radio, etc. This car looks great and runs well. I paid 35% of sticker price for a 4 year old car that is indistinguishable from a 2011 DTS. Would I buy a new Cadillac? No, but I'm happy to buy a used one and save $35k by letting someone else take the depreciation hit for the first few years.
