    Alamo Rental DTS

    Hey everyone,
    I was looking to rent a Cadi for a week. On Alamo's web site, it lists their DTSs with Supercharged V6's.... Can this be correct? I don't want to rent that if its a V6. Anyone know the scoop on that?

    no, they have N*'s not S/C'd V6s unless they put those in aftermarket. probably a mistake, do you have a link?

    That's just some kind of a bad typo, plain and simple.

    Hey everyone... I got the DTS. It has the Northstar. I think they just put that in the event that you got stuck with a Buick. (They said they also use the Park Avenue.)

    DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO TURN OFF THE TRACTION CONTROL IN THE 2006 MODEL?

    Hey, thanks for the reply. The only thing in the glovebox is a valet switch. The traction control button is on the end of the shifter in mine.... Funny, I found it almost the same time Chris replied in the other thread about it. Thanks

    On floorshift models there's a button on top of the console to the left of the shifter. Look for the tire (T/C) icon

    The button is on the end of the shift stalk for column-mounted shifters.

    Try holding it down instead of just pushing the button, to see if is has other modes. My V has 4 TC modes

    Cadillac does not offer DTS's with ANY V6. All are Northstar V8 equipped.
