2006 Cadillac DTS Performance 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
My vehicle is 14 months old (5,350 miles) and when driven, it's a dream. However, one day after 11 months of driving, it would not start in mid-town NY. It was then "repaired" by a dealer. One and a half months later, the same thing happened. Again, it was repaired (it took 5 days) by the same dealer. Last night, after midnight (less than 3 months from "Repair Job #2), it wouldn't start again. The motor didn't even turn over. Then, 40 minutes later, it started up! This lack of reliability is insane and is the reason that I'm getting rid of an otherwise great looking/driving automobile.
The appearance is wonderful. Also, it drives like a dream...when it drives.
Unless I simply have a "lemon," work needs to be done on this model's battery charging unit. Last night, even the On-Star feature wouldn't work!
