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


Review

Would not start AGAIN. This is the 3rd time since we bought it. It goes back to the dealer and on the 1st time he said we left something on. According to the owner's manual everything is supposed to shut down after 10 minutes. 2nd time they could find nothing. They still have it for the 3rd. time today. It remains to be seen what the problem may or may not be. Also lots of luck calling 1 800 Cadillac to get it started. The first 2 times they sent a qualified starting service, not today. This guy was not equipped to start a car that was still in the garage.


Best Features

Great fuel economy. I sometimes get over 29 mpg.


Worst Features

Get it to be dependable

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


Review

It is a real pleasure driving this vehicle. The battery burned out recently and a new one was purchased. It is equipped with OnStar, which had come in handy in several occasions. The sensors make it easy to park in tight places. The low mileage is a result of not taking any long trips.


Best Features

Very comfortable and a pleasure to drive. It also has a fast pick-up.


Worst Features

None that I can think of.

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
