Good find. I'd check all the fluids make sure they've been changed. Trans fluid is usually good for 10 years. Dexcool is good for 5 years. Brake fluid should be almost clear. If its dark change that too. Check the tires for dry rot (cracks) If there is cracks on the sidewall replace the tires regardless of tread depth.

I'd go one even further than Omac, Don't even bother checking the tires, just go get them replaced... period! That's only about 1700 miles a year. Do the fluid and tire replacement immediately. Then take it out for about a half hour to an hour drive at freeway speed and then park it in the garage overnight and see if anything starts leaking. There's a pretty good chance the thing wasn't driven enough or properly, but there's also a good chance you've got yourself a JEM.

Just purchase a 2011 DTS , with 50K for $8K .
Any issues that I need to look for ?
Check all the fluids. If you don't know when or if it was changed then replace with new including brake fluid. Check the tires for cracks. dry rot. If they are the originals replace them. Check the brake pads. Basically check all the systems. Great looking DTS. Not many with low miles left. Looks like it spent it's life garaged and was probably well maintained.

Nobody would ever guess that is a 100k ride.
That shine is incredible.

Just noticed the fender crests. Nice touch (y)

Painted the front and rear subframes with POR 15 rust restore and preventative. Being from New England the undercarriage had very minor rust on the subframes and none on the floor boards and rockers. I always get the car washed after salt exposure and I pressure wash the undercarriage every spring. Looks like it had paid off.

Hello everyone. After many years of drooling, I finally pulled the trigger yesterday. I got myself a 2009 Radiant Silver DTS Luxury with 57,000 miles. The ride home from work was amazing, and made me a little sad that I waited this long.

I was originally looking for a black one, but since my wife will also drive it, she picked out this 2010 for 9k, with 82k miles 2 days ago.. it originally began as a rental car in Hawaii for 5 months then ended up in the lower 48... lucky for us, clean inside and out. Strangest color though... it's listed as Vanilla Latte.... she like's it.
