"I bought this car as a 1 owner vehicle in Nov, 2010. Sure am glad I made that decision. Great driving car, very reliable, no major issues other than normal oil changes (all maintenance preformed at dealer). Replaced a sensor for one of the tires that measures air pressure, brakes all the way around and tires. I do a lot of highway driving, set the cruise at about 73 and no stress or worry. Handles the road very well, good, solid, comfortable ride without a lot of sway. A lot of big cars have the "floating" sensation, not the DTS. Reduced the road bumps to a minimum, does not beat you to death on a 500 mile trip. Personally, I think Cadillac made a huge mistake by discontinuing this model. If I wanted a mid-sized care I would buy a Lexus or BMW. Guess I will have to look at Mercedes now, not real happy about that."

"We purchased car to last thru retirement. This car went to rest before me. Dealerships said they did the work under warranty but never did. Hired a forensic expert and proved work never done. They then fixed it. Little things as well as big went wrong. My biggest complaint is that this car cost 60000 and within 3 mos had a value of 47000. If I had purchased the lexus ls 460 I looked at, there would be no trouble and the car would be worth around 20,000 without all the problems."

"Purchased this 2007 DTS in 2011 with 64k miles. I average 12k miles per year. Out of about 7 cars I've purchased in my life time this was the only one I purchased with a warranty. Good purchase. Had to use it 5 times and it saved me about $7k. I knew that Cadillacs had a rep for electrical problems from time to time. And because I purchased it used with 64k miles I thought it smart to get the warranty. But with it's problems I still like this automobile. But I had to get use to all the attention and compliments that come with it. Although I only paid $21k for it most think I paid 35k to 40k. I do have the Performance pkg which gives very good get up and go for all the weight."
