Hi Folks. As you may notice this is my first post to this website. I am in the process of purchasing an 06 DTS. I do not have an owners manual and the seller doesn't know what her husband originally ordered/purchased.
Here is the VIN. 1ggkd57y66u104745
Can anyone shed some light on this car.
Thanks in advance.

There is a tag on the bottom of the spare tire cover in the trunk that has all the RPO codes for the car and can be decoded on the internet at various sites.

I tried to check the VIN on COMPNINE and got this message....

Nothing found for 1GGKD57Y66U104745
It may be that we don't have it in the database yet, but be sure to check that you have typed it correctly.

Looks like a LUX ll... Originally sold to AVIS Rental cars.
Looks like the vin is 1G6... not 1GG...

Thanks guys. I guess that explains the high mileage (98k). Still a very nice car. I would never buy a rental Mustang or Camaro, but a Caddy.....Why not??
Thanks again

I bought a 04 DeVille in 2007 that had been a rental its first 52,000 miles. It was $15k, several thou under bluebook. The things that went wrong with it were the same ones that plagued other DeVilles. I believe I did more damage to it overloading it on long trips than the rental drivers did.

What would give me pause about this car is that it's a very, very early DTS. Granted, most of the car is the same as the 00-05 DeVille, and manufacturing defects would likely already have been addressed after almost 8 years. 06's do seem to post more problems here, but it could be because they're the oldest cars.
