I sold my 2003 DeVille in February of 2011 and have been waiting for a certified version of the XTS but after your comments I think that I had better look elsewhere. I do not want a performance suspension or a Mercedes stiff ride. I sat in the XTS but didn't drive one. The salesman said that it rides like a DTS on a straight road but takes the curves better.
I'll take that with a grain of salt until I drive it. Frankly I'm sick of these cars that I can't even get into without banging my head. All of them are the same - LaCross, Malibu, XTS etc. I may check out the Avalon. Cadillac says that there is more back seat room in the XTS than the CTS. I'm surprised at your comments but you may be right. They are making them smaller and smaller.

I just picked my 2013 xts, I love it. Although I can see how the old time caddy owners would get turned off by the technology and complicated gadgetry, I welcome it. I think it's real easy to use one you get the jist. I have the car less than a week ,and have the whole thing down already. the design is nice,streamlined, and rides really nice. Why everyone thinks the car has to ride like a marshmallow is beyond me. IMO it has the perfect blend of luxury and performance. A real good balance. I have gotten nothing but compliments on this ca. and sure , a lot of the gadgets may be overkill, but hey, it's fun! Enjoy it, its a cadillac! You can't compare it to the lacrosse or the equinox, or even the SRX . Plenty of legroom n the back, huge trunk space, and I absolutely love the design. 16 ft. Long makes it as long as the escalade..seems big enough for me. Barely fits in the garage. Very happy with this car so far. I have 35 months and 3 weeks to go...
#7 of 8 Cadillac XTS Reliability
Jan 18, 2013 (9:21 am)
Can anyone who owns a new XTS address any reliability problems they have encountered? Have their been any high oil consumption engine oil problems that many owners of the CTS (2003-2011) have complained about with the V-6 engine? Do you think that the XTS is comparable to the DTS? Thanks for your help!

Love my 2013 XTS Luxury Edition. I have noted a big problem. Mine did not come with wheel locks. I woke up to find my XTS on blocks in Miami with all rims gone. Invest in locks folks. Quite a sad feeling.
