2010 Cadillac DTS Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I've found my Town Car superior to the DTS in almost every way except: pedal position, ride, brake feel, and power (DOHC in DTS vs SOHC 4.6 L in TC). DTS engine is noisy and expansion joints cause booming throughout the structure. TC's body on frame is quieter with much less road noise. DTS steering is too firm making small corrections difficult without yanking the wheel. DTS: no locking fuel filler door; no trunk lid pull down; no trumpet horn; FWD; occupants sit too low; seems like a mid-sized car when compared to the TC. Town Car: rides too firmly; accelerator and brake pedals too close together and too far to the right; engine not as responsive as in DTS; RWD.


Best Features

Power; ride; brakes.


Worst Features

Quietness; steering effort; higher seating position; fuel economy; 6 or 7 speed auto.

2010 Cadillac DTS Sedan Premium 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I've had the DTS for 3 months now. I love everything about it except the build quality. Ride is spectacular. Interior build is just good. Inside window molding is lose and has a gap where you can see the edge of the window. The outside is where the build quality looks bad. Trim on doors does not line up. Doors themselves do not line up. Doors either hang higher or lower than the front or rear doors. Trim inside the trunk fell off as it was never snapped on. Transmission leak at 1000 miles (Bolts had to be sealed). GM just doesn't care about the DTS as they are doing away with it. Well guess what. I'm doing away with GM. Cadillac is NOT the standard of the world as they claim.


Best Features

Nav, Heated/Cooled Seats, Remote Start, Comfortable.


Worst Features

Better build quality. The build quality bad on my DTS.

2010 Cadillac DTS Sedan Premium 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I had a 2009 Cadillac DTS and the driver side windshield washer would not wet down the upper windshield and deposited the water in bulk right in front of the driver view through the windshield. The passenger side washer/wiper worked perfectly. Cadillacs replaced two wiper arms to no avail. I reported this to Cadillac and in 6 months I was told an engineer would call me. still waiting after the case was closed twice and reopened. I test 6 new 09 and 2010 DTS Cadillac and they all do not work . Traded the Cadillac DTS for a Lincoln MKs. got three time more features, more luxury and a better driving automobile. no more Cadillacs in my garage.


Best Features

looks


Worst Features

fix the driver side windshield washer and the shifting feeling in high wind or behind a semi truck

2010 Cadillac DTS Sedan Platinum 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I just returned from a trip to Long Island,N.Y. The car was a dream to drive and the air conditioned seats made the ride in ninety degree temp a real pleasure.The radar to keep you alert to the fact that you are in the center of the lane is also a good feature. Onstar GPS makes getting to your destination an absolute pleasure. The ride with magna traction shocks is as great as it is on my Corvette.


Best Features

The ride is one of the DTS great features. The handling is super for a car of it's size. The shocks and low profile tires are really a great asset.


Worst Features

It's a shame the DTS is no longer going to be in the Cadillac line up this car looks like a baby Bentley.

Review

Just picked up an 08 DTS, I was driving a Dodge Ram. I've always had Trucks because I'm a big guy (6'5" 270lbs), so I need a lot of leg room. The bouncy, loud and overpowering ride of the trucks had to go. The DTS offers plenty of room, power, comfort, and it's just a nice looking car. If I had to compare ride of the DTS. Think if you spent 30 year sleeping on the floor, and you just got a top of the line pillow top (King Koil Matress). You sleep would never be the same you wouldn't want to get out of bed. That's what driving the DTS feels like. Comfort and smooth ride like you wouldn't believe. A++


Best Features

The Ride, Comfortable Seats, Large Trunk, Superb Headlights, V-8 Power, Interior Design, Quiet Ride, Great Sound System, Style


Worst Features

Needs more interior storage space. You can only open the trunk with the Key Fob.
