    07 CTS vs. 07 DTS

    Which one should I rent? I'm picking up one of either from Enterprise this afternoon and taking it 300 miles to Nashville and back. I know the DTS has an MP3 jack, I assume the CTS does as well.

    How is the CTS compared to DTS in terms of quiet, comfort, and ride?

    The only thing they have in common is that they have a Cadillac Wreath & Crest on them. The CTS is nice for around town, the DTS for touring.

    Re: 07 CTS vs. 07 DTS

    I've had both as loaners more than once, and milked every second of having them.

    DTS Pros:
    Cavernous inside
    High quality interior
    Badass exhaust note
    Excellent ride

    DTS Cons:
    Waaay too much body roll through turns, even slight ones
    Slow-ish

    CTS Pros:
    Fun to drive
    DSC is neat
    Awesome handling
    RWD
    2.8L isn't that slow

    CTS Cons:
    Transmission takes awhile to downshift into lower gear
    Some plastics you would expect to find in a Cavalier

    Re: 07 CTS vs. 07 DTS

    Obviously moot at this point, but yes Id suggest the DTS if you wanted a good highway cruiser. And since MP3 jack was important, more reason to go with the DTS.

    Just to comment. The new DTS is pretty even from a roll with a CTS 3.6L. The 2.8L is slow...

    Ian is picking me up from the airport and then we're taking his brother's new toy. You'll see it.
