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!

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.

It's A Caddy — Cadillac did get away from the tail fins which was their amazing trait, but now they have moved on to newer and definitely more luxurious and powerful. When it comes to cars, you can't lose with a cadillac.

2008 Cad Dts — It's comfortable, love the ride on long trips. Mileage is okay for a large V8 (avg 22.5 highway/city). Great acceleration. GREAT storage space in the truck. Only time in the shop is during scheduled service. I plan to keep this car for years to come.

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.
