You'll Like The 2007 Cadillac DTS If...

Drivers of any age who place comfort and luxury over sportiness and performance might be well-satisfied behind the wheel of a DTS, even if they couldn't quite bring themselves to buy one. Mature shoppers -- those who aren't worried about being pigeonholed by their choices of vehicles -- are most likely to appreciate the DTS's many available comforts and amenities.

Cadillac's are great vehicles.

I really love my Cadillac CTS. It is almost like riding on air as you drive down the road. I never thought I would own a Cadillac but I am so glad that I do now! I would definitely recommend this car for anyone looking for a luxury type vehicle. The performance of this vehicles are absolutely amazing!

Beautiful pearl white paint, all leather, luxury ride!

It is a luxury ride. Heated and cooled seat. Heated steering wheel, navigation, sun shade. What can I say, it is loaded and floats down the road. It is a v8, so it is not great on fuel, but it is easy to sacrifice that with all of the options. Cadillac's are one of my favorite vehicles.

Most comfortable car I have ever owned.

No problems out of my car. Very comfortable seats with all of the seats in the car heated. Ac stays freezing in august. Lots of trunk space. Rides smoothly especially down our bumpy interstate. Back and forth 30 miles to school every day with no problems. Very reliable.

Safety Recalls (2)

Electrical System Jun 23, 2014
Report Receipt Date:
Jun 23, 2014
NHTSA Campaign:
14V355000
Summary:
This defect can affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2005-2009 Buick LaCrosse, 2006-2011 Buick Lucerne, 2000-2005 Cadillac DeVille, 2006-2011 Cadillac DTS, 2006-2014 Chevrolet Impala, and 2006-2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the weight on the key ring and road conditions or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine.
Consequence:
If the key is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy if the vehicle is involved in a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Additionally, a key knocked out of the run position could cause loss of engine power, power steering, and power braking, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.
Remedy:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will install two 13mm key rings and key insert into the vehicle's ignition keys, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact General Motors customer service at 1-800-521-7300 (Buick), 1-800-458-8006 (Cadillac), and 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet). GM's number for this recall is 14299.
