#2566 of 2880 PDQ Premium Luxury Collection
Aug 30, 2008 (11:15 pm)
I bought a red 2008 Cadillac CTS with PDQ, 18" wheel summer package, the price was $40,575 after the $2000 rebate and the Employee Plan. The dealer didn't accept any lower price than the Plan price.
The Window Sticker doesn't mention 6 DISC CD PLAYER, but since PQD has Y41 included, I think it should have 6 DISC CD.
I tried to insert a second CD I couldn't do it. The book said press the insert key; I donít think I have that key.
Does anyone have CTS with PDQ package?
Does it come with 6 DSC CD PLAYER, or a single one?
Thank you for the insight.

The insert key is the button you pressed before you inserted the first cd, you spoke of .

Your car has a single disc player. The navigation system does not come with a 6 disc changer. You have a hard drive with the navigation system. You can copy the contents of your CD's and DVD's to the hard drive to play back later.

Congratulations! I'm really enjoying mine.
I have the PDQ option. On the left end of the CD/DVD slot, there is a small triangle for Eject; there's no Load Button.
I turned on the Navigation system, inserted the CD without pushing any button, then it played it back automatically.

I am looking to purchase the CTS. When I test drove the car I noticed the wind noise only coming from the driver side window. The dealer told me that it may be a bad door seal. What was the outcome regarding your car and the wind noise?

My dealer agreed that the wind noise was from the driver side window; none others that I can detect. The dealer, however, has yet been unable to solve it. The wind noise isn't as bothersome as the vibrations/squeaks that I'm getting from the chrome-look plastic rings that frame the dash gauges. The dealer hasn't solved that one yet either and the squeaking really is annoying. The remainder of the car seems very solid.

I get a small amount of wind noise from the driver window when there is a strong buffeting wind. Otherwise the car is extremely quiet. On several occasions, when I was stopped at a red light, I had to glance at the tach to see if the car was still running.

I drove to Vail on 8/23 & 8/24. I drove around the mountains including RMNP until 8/30. I headed back to Indianapolis on 8/31 and arrived on 9/1. I put 2700 miles on the odometer (it now has 3500 total miles on it). I encountered every conceivable weather condition except snow. I had sunshine, rain, and even hail; high buffeting winds and still air; temperatures from the 40's to the 90's. I drove from 500 feet above sea level to 12,000 feet above. I kept the cruise at 77/78, except in Colorado, where I found it easier to drive with cruise turned off. The car was/is so smooth, quiet and comfortable that I frequently found myself doing 90 when I was not using the cruise. The A/C was flawless in the 90 degree sun, and the cooled seats were wonderful. The drive was almost like playing a video game from my family room easy chair.
I got 26.3 mpg going west, and I got 27.1 coming back east.
I plan to go to the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta in October. I could fly, but why fly when you can drive?
Hope you all enjoy your CTS's as much as I do mine.

Glad your CTS is working out so well for you.
Also happy to hear you enjoyed CO. I moved to Grand Jct. in '53 & still enjoy a timeshare near Granby. RMNP is in our back yard. I feel better above 8K feet elevation and best above 9K. I first did the trail ridge road in '62 & have enjoyed it every time since. It's best (as I'm sure you'll agree) in a great car.
Excellent fuel economy for such a large car. My Lincoln LS did 27 on the highway on a good day, but it was no prize around town.

Glad you are enjoying your CTS.
I will be driving back from Austin through Albuquerque in late October. Exactly when is the Balloon fiesta.
And what or where is RMNP.
