Pros

Plenty of passenger room; quiet ride; smooth, powerful acceleration


Model News

Not much new for 2010, though lane departure sensors and a blind zone alert system have been added to the options list. The Platinum edition adds some flash with 18-inch chrome wheels, a chrome grille and other shiny exterior trim.


Value Writeup

With its improved fit and finish and its array of available configurations, the DTS still holds its own in the luxury sedan segment. The DTS is largest sedan in the Cadillac line-up. DTS buyers value the car's soft, comfortable ride and the notably quiet interior.


Model Highlights

Cadillac offers four versions of the DTS, all with a powerful 4.6-liter V8 under the hood that makes 275 horsepower. The top-level Platinum edition squeezes out a few more horsepower for a rating of 292. All versions have a 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, plus 4-wheel anti-lock brakes, StabiliTrak stability control, traction control and tire pressure monitoring.

In addition to active safety systems, driver and passenger-sensing air bags are standard. Being under the GM umbrella, the Cadillac DTS has standard OnStar assistance, which automatically notifies emergency personnel in case of a crash, unlocks the doors remotely, diagnoses vehicle issues and includes roadside assistance. Rear parking assist is standard on all but the base DTS.

Since this is a luxury car, plenty of amenities are standard across the lineup. Remote keyless entry, power locks and power heated mirrors, performance tires and high-intensity discharge xenon headlights come on all DTS models. Inside, you'll find leather seating surfaces, power front seats, dual-zone climate control, cruise control and sound system with CD player.

Some features, such as heated front seats are available on the base DTS and standard on the Luxury, Premium and Platinum models. The Luxury edition also adds a sunroof, rear heat ducts and Bluetooth connectivity, while the Premium has wood trim, an upgraded sound system from Bose, navigation system and side mirrors with integrated turn signals. The performance aspects of the DTS Platinum go beyond the chrome bits on the exterior; it also has an active suspension system. The Side Blind Zone Alert system and Lane Departure Warning are available at the Premium level and standard on the Platinum.

Summary
GM IS RECALLING MODEL YEAR 2010 CADILLAC DTS VEHICLES FOR FAILING TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 110, TIRE SELECTION AND RIMS. THE TIRE AND LOADING INFORMATION LABEL, WHICH LISTS THE PROPER TIRE AND VEHICLE LOADING INFORMATION, WAS NOT INSTALLED ON THE VEHICLE. IN ADDITION, THERE ARE TWO LABELS AFFIXED TO AFFECTED VEHICLES THAT INCORRECTLY DESCRIBE THEM AS AN INCOMPLETE VEHICLE. ONE LABEL IS THE VEHICLE CERTIFICATION LABEL, WHICH CERTIFIES THAT THE VEHICLE CONFORMS TO ALL APPLICABLE U.S. FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY, BUMPER, AND THEFT PREVENTION STANDARDS. THE SECOND LABEL IS THE SERVICE PARTS IDENTIFICATION LABEL, WHICH LISTS VARIOUS COMPONENTS USED IN THE MANUFACTURING OF THE VEHICLE.

Consequence
DRIVING THE VEHICLE WITH TIRES THAT ARE NOT PROPERLY INFLATED COULD RESULT IN TIRE OVERLOADING, PREMATURE OR IRREGULAR WEAR, AND/OR POOR HANDLING INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

GM WILL MAIL THE THREE CORRECT LABELS TO OWNERS ALONG WITH INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS. OWNERS MAY ALSO TAKE THE VEHICLE AND THE LABELS TO A DEALER FOR INSTALLATION.

Summary
This defect can affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2005-2009 Buick LaCrosse, 2006-2011 Buick Lucerne, 2000-2005 Cadillac DeVille, 2006-2011 Cadillac DTS, 2006-2014 Chevrolet Impala, and 2006-2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the weight on the key ring and road conditions or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine.

Consequence
If the key is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy if the vehicle is involved in a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Additionally, a key knocked out of the run position could cause loss of engine power, power steering, and power braking, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will install two 13mm key rings and key insert into the vehicle's ignition keys, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact General Motors customer service at 1-800-521-7300 (Buick), 1-800-458-8006 (Cadillac), and 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet). GM's number for this recall is 14299.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
