2007 Cadillac DTS Luxury I 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
The ride, comfort and convenience are what the DTS is about. Handling is soft and imprecise, but secure. This was purchased to be a highway cruiser, and as such it excels. This is our 4th caddy and 2nd DTS, the previous DTS was an '03 and was basically run to the ground. The '03 was plagued with electrical problems, which were addressed with the '06 upgrade. Thoughtful touches include the cooled seats, remote start and heated steering wheel. The white led instrument-interior lighting is clear and attractive, the sweep of the dash modern with intuitive controls. Seat belts are difficult to latch though, and the lack of an outside trunk lock a strange omission.
Styling, 6 passenger seating, simple climate and radio controls, heated and cooled seating, large trunk, great visibility, powerful engine and quiet cabin.
Upgrade transmission to 6 gears, restore outside trunk lock, improve gas mileage, replace dated outside door handles with pull type, amber turn signals on edge of outside mirrors for safety.
