Dependable-great car. I plan on buying another

2009 Cadillac DTS w/1SE

Dependable, reliable. Heated and cooled seats. Large engine to ensure longevity of car. This car is a workhorse. It's not. A fuel efficient car but has very few repairs and safer car. Has all the bells and whistles but really enjoy the smooth ride. This helps with the commute. I do not feel beat up when I get home.

Problems. I would say the major one was the oil leak and water pump.

2009 Cadillac DTS

My vehicle has had a oil leak. It also had a water pump replaced. It was all under warranty and they replaced it. Other than that my vehicle runs wonderful. It also had a problem with the tire and brake problems. We had to replace the batteries and windshield wipers.

It is very reliable and will last long as long as it is taken care of!.

2009 Cadillac DTS

The cadillac is very reliable for an older model. The car rides very smoothly. The 2009 body is built to last, after almost 10 years it looks good!.
