#8 of 23 new 2007 DTS
Apr 20, 2007 (12:09 pm)
We have had the 2007 for about 5 months. It is lux 2. This is our 5th Cadillac and overall the best. About 14 to 15 mpg in town and approx. 24 mpg (CA. gas) on the hiway at 70 mph. The trunk stoplight was cracked and replaced under warranty.
The only real problem is an "easy exit" drivers seat that only goes all the way back. Can it still be programed to a custom setting (i.e. half way )?

I finally got an answer from Cadillac regarding the ability to program "the easy exit" drivers seat settings. You can't. The seat only moves all the way back when using this setting. This infringes onto the rear seat passenger.
Another intermittent problem is rear seat seatbelts locking up when being used( passenger or booster seat).

I BOUGHT A NEW 2007 CADILLAC DTS. AFTER 3 WEEKS AND 800 MILES, THE WIRES IN THE ENGINE BURNED. CADILLAC CALLS THIS A MINOR MALFUNCTION. I CALL IT A LEMON. AVOID CADILLAC AND GM. YOULL ONLY HAVE SORROW AND MISERY. WISH I KNEW THEN WHAT I KNOW NOW.

Just traded my 04 seville for an 07 DTS. Very pleased so
far. Great ride, lots of room in cabin and trunk. Also
concerned about the easy exit not doing what I would like it to do. Also can not use flash to pass lights during daytime. I liked this feature on the seville.
Only 800 miles so I guess I still have a lot to learn about the car. Gas millage is also same as the seville. My first
experience with XM radio. I like it.

I recently bought a 07 DTS, after three months and 2500 miles I could not be more pleased. It is a great ride and lots of space for traveling. It seems the only people that write messages are the people having problems. Every car made has some cars that have problems to deal with. This is my l3th new Cadillac and I did get one that came under the lemon law, however, Cadillac was very good about replacing it with another new Cadillac. I also have a Mercedes and Chrysler. Don't be afraid to buy a car because someone else has had trouble with that brand

others with this sort of problem have not been able to get it fixed.
One question: do you have a set of locking nuts (which take a key) on your wheels? If so, were they supplied by GM or are they some aftermarket add on? They could be a different weight than the rest of the nuts and would make the wheels out of balance..... -> this is just an idea

Traded my 2002 Cadillac Seville STS for a 2007 Cadillac DTS Performance on Friday, November 23, 2007. My car is Black Raven with Ebony leather interior and 18" chrome rims.
As of 3 April, the car runs smooth and has exhibited absolutely no problems. There's so much stuff on this car it makes my Seville STS look like a plain jane in comparison. I still don't know how it all works. I guess I just have to set aside a day when it gets warmer to learn everything.
