2008 Cadillac DTSCaddy Man - South Carolina07/06/2011
This car is awsome. The only thing I regret is waiting so long to finally purchase it. The ride is as smooth as any other Cadillac I've owned. The cooled seats are definitely a plus while battling this summer heat in the southern region our the U.S.. The BOSE sound system has a real crisp sound and you shouldn't have to upgrade your system at all. I just recently returned from a road trip that totaled up to 3k miles in a week and I must say that I'm totally impressed with this vehicles performance.
I guess I'll start by comparing this car to my old 2001 DeVille. I thought this was going to be a slightly updated version of the same car, but when Cadillac redesigned this car in 2006, they made significant changes. First, the handling is much improved. This big boat handles like a sports car. Ride is somewhat stiffer, but after getting used to it, I like it better. It really absorbs big bumps that were very upsetting to the old DeVille. Similar inside, but the dash is much improved. Well designed and better built than the old car. This car seems to have more power, even thought the engine is exactly the same. I suspect some tweaking to the engine computer. My old car used some oil, typical of these engines. I've learned that the piston rings were redesigned in 2006. So far, this car has used almost no oil. The heated and cooled seats are fantastic. Well worth getting. The 2000-2005 DeVilles had some reliability problems. Nothing major, but small,irritating problems. The DTS is much improved. I think reliability is now first rate. For people not familiar with these cars, check them out. I don't think there's a better deal anywhere than a clean, used Cadillac. By the way, gas mileage is running 22-25 mpg. Not bad for a big, comfortable car. The only problem is the jicky Firestone tires that are on the car. A new set of Michelins and this car will be perfect.
Good Deal !
