2006 Cadillac DTS Luxury I 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

worst car ever, I'v had my car for 2 years.12 times back in dealer for all kinds of electrical problems, transmission, drive train, suspension was out at 30000 miles and dealership manager said that everything is normal, same was with transmission at 5K miles car was jerking ,the gear change was wery rough, and again I was told by the service manager ,everything is normal, it took 6 trips to the dealer and and 40K miles later to make the dealer look at the problem again and finally figure it out.My advice for potential cadilac DTS buyer: If you are planning to buy the car for driving ,not sitting in a garage, please buy different car , You'll save yourself a lot of nerves,honestly!!!!

2006 Cadillac DTS Luxury III 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Great solid car. Good value. Rides like a Cadillac. Plenty of power. Economy is competitive to much smaller cars, and regular gas is a plus. Well designed interior. Everything fits and is comfortable. Quiet ride.


Best Features

XM radio. Nav system. Front and rear warning device.

Review

This is my 4th Caddy and it has more omph that any of the previous 3. Great color -Ice Blue. Got better mileage with the '03 but this still gets 25-27 mpg on the road. Love the extra toys - heated steering wheel, OnStar, etc.


Best Features

Comfortable seats


Worst Features

Console should be longer, to rest your arm more comfortably

Review

I thoroughly enjoy the car in almost every aspect. It has lots of zip and yet is classy. The interior is nicely laid out with plenty of room. The seats are comfortable. I don't use the remote start much, but in the winter it is nice to have. I thoroughly enjoy the XM radio. Like drugs, it is extremely addictive. I cannot live without it now. I have since installed it in my second car and when I replace that, I will get XM radio in the new car.


Best Features

My favorite features are XM radio, heated steering wheel and seats, and headlights are super great on a dark and rainy night.


Worst Features

The doors open very wide. It would be nice if some way they could have a button to return them 1/2 way and then one could grab on to the door handle much more easily.

2006 Cadillac DTS Performance 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Awsome vehicle very comfortable with performance and great handling. The Performance edition with the larger engine gives a little extra punch, the ride is much better with the enhanced suspension and ride package, takes bumps and railroad tracks with ease. Brakes very well stops on a dime while holding the road. Navagation system combined with onstar is easy to use and very accurate. Bose soundsystem with centerpoint sounds awsome especially with XM or a CD in play. I am very comfortable in my driver seat for a long drive thanks to 8 way power seats with memory and the cooling and massage features.


Best Features

Cooled driver and front passenger seats. Front passenger massaging seats. Navagation system. Ultrasonic parking assist. Bose centerpoint sound system.


Worst Features

Turning radius is comprimised with the front wheel drive.
