You'll Like The 2011 Cadillac DTS If...

If your idea of a great driving car includes complete isolation from the road while being cocooned in a shroud of silence, the DTS is the car for you.

That it drives smooth and the motor is one of the best.

I like that it has an 8 cylinder motor. Good when trying to get out in traffic. Like that It's a luxury car. Like the satellite radio. So many stations to choose from.

- Joyce L

I have experienced a number of fluid leak repairs. Seem to replace front tires and brakes more often than other vehicles I have owned.

The vehicle is great as far as luxury and has many comfort features. I like the seats for cushion and adjustments. The v8 engine is very powerful.

- Len G

It is impressive and comfortable but expensive to repair.

I like the size and stability. I don't like the cost of repair. It is impossible to fix without a computer.
