I'm new to this forum and trying to help my sister who is interested in a 08 DTS.It has a MSRP 45,415. Edmunds invoice is $42,318. What would be a fair price to be paying for this vehicle. Thank you for any help. What price should she start from.

I'd start with $5-6k off with purchase cash and owner loyalty cash (if you currently own a GM vehicle) GM is offering through April 30th. I'd wait until April 29th or 30th (end of month) when the dealer really wants to move his inventory to prevent carrying it over to the next month. Also, if you're in a larger city, you may have more than one Cadillac dealership to compete for your business. Also consider a Smart Buy, this works like a lease but you own the car; you can purchase the car at the end of the period for the pre-agreed on balloon payment, you can get another GM vehicle, or just walk away.
In 2007, Lincoln was pushing new Town Cars with up to $15k in incentives. I don't think you'll be able to do that well with a DTS, but who knows?
#22 of 23 Problems with engine cutting off while driving!
Aug 27, 2008 (3:14 pm)
Has anyone experienced problems with 2007 DTS engine just cutting off while driving? My Mom began leasing the car in 3/07. This happened to her 4 times and she narrowly missed hitting someone one of those times. When this happens the brakes do not respond, nor can she accelerate, NOR does OnStar activate! The dealer can find nothing wrong except that some codes "were missing" on OnStar which they corrected. We contacted GM while the car was in the shop (for 10 days) - & the GM rep was downright rude. After the codes were fixed, she drove the car for about 3 weeks without any further problems. Then, while on a trip, she noticed that the car began to vibrate severely when she stepped on the brakes. She took it to the dealer & they replaced the pads and rotor. About a week after the brake repair, the engine again cut off while she was driving and had done so twice - the last time being yesterday, 8/26/08. She called the dealer and they did not even tell her to bring it in. The are trying to contact GM to find out what to do, but GM is not responding to them! FYI, I also drive the car and we took it on a trip this past weekend and I did not notice any problems while driving. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Are you sure it is coming from the rear. I feel a vibration in the floor and depending on the speed some in the steering wheel. The dealer tried a lot of things including putting on all new tires and rims from another car and force load balancing my tires and wheels. A different dealer told me they experienced the same problem and found the axels were bent. Once they replaced them the owner said the car rode like a Cadillac should.
