    Happy days

    I finally traded my 2004 SRX imitation Cadillac for a 2006 DTS, White Lightning, adaptive, sunroof, NAV and the works. This is my 4th DTS (No Devilles). This one is definately the best of breed.

    I did experience one interesting moment. The other day I was trailing a police car who was probably 300 ft ahead of me and in the next lane. All of a sudden the adaptive cruise control started beeping and braking hard (well as hard as it can brake). I have 4K miles on the car and use the Adaptice Cruise all the time. I am wondering if the backward looking radar in the police cruiser might have causd this. No other cars in either lane for probably 1/4 mile, no turns, no concrete walls nearby. Not a big deal but just curious if the Adaptive cruise control might be a potential radar detector.

    Just did a 1,500 mile trip and the nav was spot on all the way.

    Imagine, I could have spent much more to get something almost as good made by a former WWII enemy. The SRX nearly wrecked my relationship with Cadillac, but, the world is round again.

    Infinitis have the same issues with adaptive cruise. Its not a feature I really care for.

    Glad to see you've found a car that you like.

    The SRX wasn't a real Cadillac. The only thing it had going for it was a great 0 - 60 (V8 2 WDR) and they added 1 second to that with a fix that only applied to 4 WDR and then the idiots couldn't take it off. The quality was poor and it was a lousy trip car.

    I use the adaptive CC all the time.
