My wind noise was coming from the rear passengers door. The door was not aligned properly. I took it to the Ford dealer body shop and that is what they found. I have know the guy in charge of this body shop for years so can trust what he says.
I also get some wind noise from the mirrors and nothing can be done about the. It's the way the car was designed.
You might want to have your car checked by some other place to see what they say.
People have commented that my 2007 DTS is nosier than the other Cadillac's I owned. It is not a quiet as I expected. They say if you undercoat them it makes them quieter but have not tried that. The undercoat is suppose to eliminate some of the road noise.
Lately I met a guy that rode in a friends new sport model Cadillac and he said it was very rough riding and noise. I think they are going backwards.
With all the problems I had with my car the next car will probably be a Lexus

My 2007 has seemed pretty quiet, however, this is the first Cadillac I have owned. Only when its extremely windy outside do I hear some wind noise, but for the most part its quiet. Also, my car just hit 32,000 miles. The dealer suggested to have the coolant changed, so I did that. Do you guys think I need to change the transmission fluid / filter at this point ? also what else should be done. According to the manual, its not much needed yet..

I have a 2008 Dts and had the windshield re-sealed. This stopped several unknown noise'es. Is much quieter unless their is a very strong wind. Mine was still under warrantee, Cadillac fixed it.
#877 of 896 Status of XTS?????
Nov 29, 2010 (6:37 pm)
Does anyone know if anything has changed regarding the XTS Concept? All of the automobile media have said that the car will be out in 2012 or 13 but there is no official word from Cadillac. As far as I'm concerned Cadillac has left me. The cars are either too big or too small. Cadillac really needs a car the size of the LaCrosse that gets good mileage. The CTS rides stiffly like a Mercedes and is cramped in front with the huge console. The DTS is antiquated and is too big. I already have a Traverse that rides well and essentially replaces my DeVille. I don't need two big cars. I'm considering a Malibu at least until Cadillac puts something out that is intermediate sized. I think that they are shooting themselves in the foot by not building something larger than the STS (which has inadequate back seat space) and smaller than the DTS. .

#879 of 896 NEED SUGGESWTIONS FOR EXTENDED WARRANTIES

My DTS is about to go out of new car warranty and wondered if forum members had suggestions as to where I can get the best price and quality of warranty in an extended service contract. Reliabilty of the Insurance company is very important to me.

The only choice as far as I'm concerned would be the GM Protection Plan. I don't buy third party insurance policies. The GM one guarantees service at any GM dealer and you don't have to submit bids.
I've sold my 03 DeVille and probably won't get another Cadillac. The XTS is going to be the size of a LaCrosse which is not much larger than a Malibu. I'll buy a new Malibu in the next couple of months. Cadillac has lost me. They used to be big comfortable 6 passenger cars. If I want a performance suspension I'll buy a Mercedes. The CTS rides about the same as my 1997 Silverado Extended Cab except that the Silverado has decent room in the front seat without the huge console the CTS has. Actually the best replacement for a DTS is an Avalon for ride comfort and resale value. Anyway I'm sorry to leave Cadillac - I've had 6 of them - but Cadillac has left me.

The dealer in Lubbock TX says that the XTS will be on the showroom floor in March of 2012. I'm waiting for a road test. There must be some pre-production cars out there but the car magazines treat it as an afterthought.
It better be significally bigger than the STS or I'll get an Avalon and wait for the "luxury" Cadillac that is suppose to appear in '14 or '15.
#882 of 896 Remote start problem 2007 DTS

I would sure appreciate a suggestion in fixing my remote start. Neither of my remote controls will start the vehicle. All other functions seem to be fine.
