ReviewThe levels of engine and road noise are still excessive in the current DTS, especially when compared to the Town Car, Mercedes Benz, and Lexus models. There is still too much NVH feedback through the steering wheel. A couple of times, when making a sharp U-turn, it felt as if the drive belt slipped resulting in the temporary failure of the power steering. Another annoyance is a squeak caused by the front seat back rubbing against the stationary center armrest console when encountering bumps. Get the bench seat option if you hate squeaks. Cadillac knows of the problem since the side of the seat bottom cushion contacting the console is covered in fabric. I will consider another DTS in '09.
Best FeaturesDealer actually found me one in my favorite decades-old Cotillion White (now supposedly offered only with the livery package) with Shale leather. Excellent sound system. Nicely cooled seats on hot days, though the seat back should also include cooling--probably won't use the seat heating feature.
Worst FeaturesBring back a full-size rwd Fleetwood. Door armrests could be mounted slightly higher. Reduce NVH levels. Bring back the telescoping steering wheel, fuel door lock, hood ornament, and auto parking brake release. MP3 player plug should have a charging function. Shifter too notchy; 6 speed trans.
