    2009 DTS platinum edition

    I just bought a 2009 DTS PLATINUM EDITION
    BLACK RAVEN WITH EBONY TEHAMA LEATHER, side blind zone alert, lane departure warning AND ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL, 37,000 miles, full original factory warranty 4 yr 50k still in effect. I paid $26,450. My son and I drove it 2,000 miles in 4 nights, 5 days back to my home in Fullerton, CA, noproblem.
    I brought it to the Cadillac dealer to perform a certified pre owned inspection. Cadillac replaced the 2 front struts and 2 rear shocks total warranty free cost $2,300 (magnetic ridecontrol) no charge to me. The ride is smooth, the performance shift algorithm kicks down crisply and its all so amazing now. We are so lucky and blessed. Everything works and checked out A OK.
    For pictures please use google search for "2009 Cadillac DTS PLATINUM EDITION SALE BROWN DEER WISCONSIN"
    Then click images the first series of Pictures are my car it should be the ones from north shore Audi the dealer where I bought the car.
    I will post the pics once I get on my windows PC. Thanks for all the replies.

    The original factory sticker was in the trunk with the owners manuals and the extra key in the leather pouch! The MSRP was $62,000!!!

    The Tehama leather is unique. The leather aroma is immediately noticeable when the doors are opened. There is an original factory Tehama leather tag still hanging on the back seat with cleaning instructions. Apparently all that's needed is a wipe down with a damp lint free cloth. Cleaners and leather polishers are prohibited. HOW COOL!! I almost bought some lexol!

    The only disappoment was the mats!! The mats are missing. The original factory mats are rare and no longer available!! Sucks! They were thick pile Berber cashmere mats from the factory. Expensive!! The original platinum edition interior mats were unique, plush and reversible too!!

    This original cargo mat for the Platinum edition had the "DTS PLATINUM EDITION" logo, was also thick pile cashmere Berber and reversible.

    The only issue we had was easily fixed. The tire pressure monitors were not matched to the wheel. The factory GM recommended cold tire pressure is ONLY 30 psi!! So the dealer had to reset and rematch the sensors to the correct wheel displayed on the driver information center!!

    The other issue was the shocks!! I already posted this before!! The previous owner drove long distance Wisconsin. To Florida and Texas. The shocks and struts were worn out!!! But Cadillac and my advisor Mr. Steve whittle got GM to replace free of charge to me saved me almost $2,300. These are smart shocks and struts -- magnetic ride control !! So they are expensive!!!

    I looked high and low all over the US FOR THIS VEHICLE for nine months! It is my son's first car that he can build a safe driving record with. He is 16.

    The car is gorgeous. Why not a wood shift handle? Is all the wood original or is any after-market?

    Beautiful car. I really like the lighter wood grain than the dark that I have in my performance edition. Enjoy your new purchase.

    What a beauty! How does your son like driving her? Tomorrow is the big day for my 17 year son too! Taking the test for his temps. He will be using my 06 DTS luxury lll to learn in, one of the reason for my purchase. I love it too. Have fun!
