2007 DTS Lux II, 2009 Escalade 6.2L.
I just wanted to make this thread for any new Cadillac DTS owners. These cars are rock solid. (For me) I treat it like a baby but I do occasionally WOT. North Star engines are great motors and will last 200,000+ of taken care of(like any other vehicle). Be on time with your SCHEDULED maintenance familiarize yourself with the owners manual. Run what ever gas you please(I like 93) but it really doesn’t matter. Change change change that oil. Change the tranny fluid at 100k. Serpentine belt and water pump pulleys and water pump. Look every car needs maintenance yes it can cost a lot if you can’t work on cars(im no chip foose). But don’t listen to the hype of the north Star longtime members will tell you to. I love this car. It’s solid, it’s safe for me my wife and my three daughters. Gas mileage for a damn V8 is fantastic. Yea oil leaks can be an issue but to be honest every caddy deville except the Escalade DRIPPED a bit of oil but not enough to lose a quart every 4000 miles. Not even a half quart. Oil pressure sensor notorious fail but easy fix. Change the coolant at 100k. The most common repairs on this car are to ME anyway are mostly annoyances rather than something catastrophic. Anyway overall i would give this car an 8/10 mechanically wise. Solid motor tried and true transmission. Plus all the bells and whistles that some cars are just now coming out with.
