How to mess up a great car
By Grumpy1 on


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


Without a doubt this is one of the finest autos I have ever driven. But, I cannot understand why so many details were installed hastily just so that they could hurriedly put the car into production. The glove box for instance is no comparison to my old '02. Most of the interior is plastic. This is not what you would expect in a $50,000 car. The consol is about useless. There is no longer a light under the hood. Mine has a heated stearing wheel that does not heat. It has so many buttons to press that after three months I do not know what many of them are for. The easy exit seat is easy exit but not easy entrance. The doors dificult to close. Also, amazingly this car does not have a locking gas door.

Best Features

Stearing wheel telescope and driver's seat movement.

Worst Features

Change the easy exit feature so that you have equal exit and entrance such as on the '02 model. Reinstall the light under the hood. Remove some of the useless gadgets. Redo the glovebox and consol storage.
