    No contender @ 65,000. 06 DTS bought 11 months ago. 1 headlight bulb @ $300, ouch, 1 oil change sevice in 11,000 mi. Uses no oil to speak of.
    Love my Caddy.

    How about the lowest? 7k miles. Biggest fix was the 3rd brake light strip which had to get fixed due to one of the bulbs going out.

    Re: Who here has the most miles on their DTS?

    Last time I checked I was 92500 and I bought it at at 72000 in Sept 2010.

    I've had to replace the tires, Ballest on the head lights, Left parking light, 3rd break light and Front Grille.

    Next I have to have the front two heated seats repaired and possibly the computer because the passenger window controls and locks dont work for some reason. Then 10 minutes later they work again ?????

    I had the same problem - software update fixed the problem back in 2007 and never happened since.

    150K - in three years I have put 110k, nothing too major~! oil pressure switch, regular tune up (belt's, water pump pulley, plugs and valve cover on one side) hub and bearing along with calipers in the rear, shoe pads, OEM tires at 77k, going to purchase them again soon, and of course all the fluid changes at proper intervals. that's about it... Hate the pitting on the chrome of the rims...

    I would venture to guess less than $100 at the dealer. Give a dealer a call for a rough estimate.
    Maybe they could do a complete update of all systems with the current software releases. It may be more economical that way.

    Re: Who here has the most miles on their DTS?

    181,878 on my 2006 DTS. Went through 1 transmission (still has a minor leak somewhere that I have to find), valve cover gasket closest to firewall is sweating a bit, HID replacement on Driver side is currently in process (went for the bulb, but it looks like the ballast is bad too so I'm waiting on that) and every now and then I see a little coolant under the car when it hasn't been driven in a week or so. Been through a lot of tires and on the last install the TPMS is now telling me it needs service. Other than that, it runs like a charm, I get around 19mpg per tank with a combination of highway and city driving (17mpg when my wife drives it) and everything on the inside still works (love the cooled seats here in Florida).

    Re: Who here has the most miles on their DTS?

    Just rolled over 101,000 on my 06 DTS. Got it with 56k miles on it. Ive replaced both HID headlamps because one went bad. Replaced the thermostat. Replaced the belt as well for no reason at all. Figured I might as well while I was working on it. The old one didn't look horrible. Replaced the brakes and tires. That is all that I can think of. Everything works like a champ.
