    Just bought 2006 DTS yesterday

    I live in Virginia. Found a blue 2006 DTS on the internet and flew to Florida and drove it back this weekend.



    The 2006 DTS is awesome!! The almost 1000 mile drive back felt like 100 miles. The car was comfortable, handled well, cruised easy, and got an average of 25.7 MPG!

    Just thought I'd let everyone know I've had it for a day and I love it.

    (I had (still have) a 02 Deville and I will say I think the 02 is quieter and rides nicer, but the 06 is a better all around car and handles better

    Congrats!I got rid of a 2000 Deville back in July and miss it.I live in Florida so it is pretty easy to find a low mileage DTS down here.I will be swapping my STS for a DTS next year.

    Congrats! The DTS is quite a car and for what they are going for nowadays, a great value.

    thanks! I expect I will get to be more active on here now. Its funny, reading posts on these forums it looks like they have a lot of problems. Yet some seem to never have a problem. Luck of the draw I suppose. The only thing I know is an issue is a oil leak. In past service history the oil pan bolts have been tightened twice. Looks like all work has been done at the GM dealer, so thats good. I'll keep you posted on how things go.

    Remember when reading about the problems... no one posts about how long they drive or how much they drive with NO PROBLEMS...

    I keep this same frame of mind when I'm reading reviews on such sites as epinions, etc. People who are satisfied with "product XYZ" aren't likely to find a forum to tell people about it ... but when "product XYZ" turns out to be "product POS", some people stop at nothing to shout it from the rooftops ... or the internet, as it were.

    These cars were rated with high reliability ratings.

    Many owners of the DTS don't even know that an owners forum exists ... until a problem arises that brings owners to the internet ... and eventually to the forum. What I have noticed is that, despite the fact that some people are reporting problems, very few of them are threatening to ditch their DTS for something else. I find comfort in that.

    137,000 on mine... I bought it new.
    Very little trouble with it in the 7 years I have had it.
    I just put gas in it, drive it and enjoy every minute of it...

    Re: Just bought 2006 DTS yesterday

    Congrats 91 zeee. I love my 06 DTS as well. Nothing rides like a big Caddy down the road. The float like a Pontoon Boat sailing across a smooth wake free lake. I have owned a Mercedes SEL, Audi A8L and a BMW 7 Series and none of them have that smooth as silk ride like my Caddy. A bonus too with the Caddy is that I don't have to take a second mortgage out on my house to maintain and repair it like those German cars.
