Owned a 2000 Deville that had no perceptable exhaust noise. The 2006 DTS exhaust is very loud and there seems to be excessive "moaning and groaning" from the engine on acceleration. Drove a relative's Nissan Armada (large, powerful SUV) that had much less engine and exhaust noise than DTS.
Also, when running the air conditioner there is a lot of vibration on the steering wheel and is very obvious when stopped.
Anyone having these experiences?

Nope. My '06 DTS has none of the symtoms you are describing. When mine is running, you feel nothing thru the steering wheel. There is no excess exhaust noise and no moaning and groaning on acceleration. It does have a tiny bit more exhaust noise than other Cadillacs I have had.

There "IS" a nice sound at full throttle, after 4000 RPM all the way to 6500 RPM. (at least to me) :) (I call it the Northstar Song) :)

I would take it back to the dealer. QUICKLY. There is no reason it should be moaning and groaning unless something is wrong with it.
