Our 2008 DTS
By L. Tong on
2008 Cadillac DTS Performance 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
We owned our third Cadillac on August 31, 2008. Overall the 2008 DTS is comfortable and the engine has a lot of get up ond go. However, 2008 DTS appears to be noiser than my previous 2002 Deville. From the front of the vehicle gear noise can be heard between 25-30mph. release the accelerator and the noise is gone. Below 25 or above 30 mph the gear noise cannot be heard. Suspect the transaxel. The side seat buckles in the back seat are set down too far making it difficult or next impossible for an average size adult to connect the latch to the buckle. Question, have the car companies stopped using undercoat on vehicles?
Love the color, Black Cherry and the tan leather interior seats. It's handy to have the controls on the steering wheel.
Extend the back seat buckles about 4 inches. I hope that the dealer can eliminate the gear noise.
