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.

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.
