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.

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.

Have you already worked with your dealership towards getting this diagnosed? We're available to follow up on that, if you like!

#884 of 894 2008 DTS Fuel Pump and Relay
May 21, 2012 (7:15 am)
At 50,700 miles the fuel pump failed - car would noty start. Had the fuel pump replaced by a local mechanic (dealer was far away) and 3 days later the fuse block which held the relay failed as the connection had overheaded from attempting to start the car many times.
I brought the parts and the bill ($800.00) to the dealer on Monday and had a check in the mail for the full amount of the repair on Friday.
That's excellent customer service. I love this car - my 3rd Caddy !!

#887 of 894 maintenance & repair, post-warranty ?
Nov 24, 2012 (1:30 pm)
As I ease into my 60s, I'm thinking of a used DTS to ease the journey. A 3 year-old CPO is easily within my reach - but I'm wondering about M&R costs (I drive about 9000 miles a year). I know that Mercedes costs are insane, so I'm not even considering the brand. Is there any resource where I could get Cadillac costs? Please advise.
