#848 of 894 Re: 09 DTS noise from navigation system [peteyshuffles]
Jul 05, 2009 (4:22 pm)
I have an 07 and never heard any noise from the navigation system. My 07 has a lot of other problems. I have been waiting for Cadallic customer service to tell me what they are going to do but so far nothing. Hope you never have to deal with them. They tell me they will call back on a certain day and don't. When I finally talk to them again I get the same story over and over. Really seems like they are just stalling with hopes I will go away.
When I had to take my car in for service while vacationing in North Carolina the rep in the service department told me that when he printed out what has been done to my care so far there were two pages. By now there should be at least 3 pages. Things keep breaking.

Marsha7, sounds like you are doing it right. A lot of times when the people rotating the tires or putting new ones on, drive the lug nuts up tight with the impact and then work either the pattern or around the wheel. By doing this it can warp the rotors or misalign the wheels to the hubs. They should back the impact pressure off until all the lugs on that wheel are snug and then tighten them to torque.
Our 07 DTS is now getting an average of 28 mpg highway and has done as well as 30 mpg between fill ups on a long trip.
Someone mentioned the GM GPS has their house a few blocks from where it obviously is. Our aftermarket GPS does the same thing. I think GPS is only as good as the people who initally entered the actual locations. GPS I believe reads your location through whatever system you have, but initially, that location had to be linked to the system/satellite manually. Our Garmin always tells us we are home when we are really a block and a half away. We have found other discrepancies in the GPS directions, near Orlando, it will tell us to get off the toll road on an exit ramp that is Sunpass only, no way to pay cash, which if we didn't know better from family, could have caused a ticket worth more than the GPS system, since we don't have a Sunpass.

After reading about dead battery, electrical issues, and other such problems with the DTS, I feel fortunate that my 2006 Luxury ll, purchased new, and now with 55,000 miles, has only been to the service dealer for routine maintenance. I would buy another DTS in a heartbeat.

My 07 DTS with almost 40k miles except for a battery replacement has been troublefree! Also my Nav. system has never made any noises either.

Was going to go somewhere and when I opened the door to get in , I didn't notice that the interior lights didn't come, I stuck the Valet key in the ignition(I know, wrong key) . I realized what I had done. Now it will not come out.
what is going on? how do you get the key out. Could it be because the battery is dead?
anybody have this problem?

I'll hold onto my '03 Deville until the XTS comes out in 2012. It looks like a really modern car and hopefully will ride better than the CTS.

Does anyone know whether there will be a DTS for 2011? Obviously if they aren't in production now there won't be.
