2008 Cadillac DTS Performance Review
Still can be labled " old person's car" but that's okay! Maybe they know something we whippersnappers don't? I believe some (NOT ALL) cars need to maintain this level of comfort over performance to whisk us over weight Americans around!
Best Old Cadillac Ever Made!!! — This Caddy is not like it's cousin Lucerne and and sisters STS and CTS! Nope it is a good old front wheel drive Float Boat! I know I've been critical of this but here in America and Canada, we drive alot. Sometimes at 1000 miles a day, and if I had to choose a vehicle to do the job it would be this no question! I love the refined plushness of the interior, the silkiness of the gearbox, the constant torque and pull of the Northstar, and the 30 mpg whilst cruising at 85 mph. I love that 4 people can go anywhere with all their golf clubs and 4 months worth of luggage and still have room for souveniers in the trunk! And unlike my loahted LS 460, it's not detatched from the driving experience. It is very much alive if you ask it to be, but just cruising there's hardly any more comfortable and economical way to do so for under 50 grand!
2008 Cadillac DTS Performance Review
Smooth ride, vast interior space, great looks.
Chugs gas like a frat boy drinks beer, poor rear visibility.
Sweet Solid Caddy — I love this car. I have rented one a couple of times and it is a sweet ride. I know it is about as PC as burning tires in the backyard but you can't drive one of these big highway cruisers without enjoying the sheer volume and smoothness of it.

Might get it stolen
2008 Cadillac DTS Luxury II Review
Excellant ride, corners great,holds the road, plenty of passing power, yet gets 19.5 mpg.
Black Leather is hot in summer if you don't use the auto start and cooling
It Looks Expensive And Is Impressive To Drive — This is my third cadallic and won't be my last, the looks and ride tells everyone it is a cadallic. The quality is in the name and looks. The only reason I am not trading it to a dealer is they want to give me $11,000. for the car and sell it for $20,000. It is too nice of a car to give it away. The blue book lists it at $18,000. my payoff is $17,000. a good deal for me and whoever buys it.
Primary Use: Family transportation

This is the 3rd DTS that we have owned and we're never disappointed when we take it anywhere. A dream to drive and experience. Awesome storage space for long travels. It has almost 50,000 miles on it ... Read More
One Of The Best Highway Cruisers Out There.

A Cloud On Wheels
This is my 5th Cadillac and by far the best one. They keep getting better every time. The seats are like butter, quite as a library and an engine with lots of get up and go and brakes that will stop ... Read More
This car has a very stately appearance as opposed to the new Cadillac XTS which is replacing the DTS this year -2013. The new model has less room for back seat passengers, compounded by the fact that ... Read More
Space, Safety And Comfort Abound.
This full sized vehicle excells at carrying people and all their luggage in serene comfort. Handling is clumsy/floaty, but DTS is about isolation and convenience, not engagement. Perfect for long trip... Read More
