When I bought the car the owner told me the power steering was bad and that they would fix it. They replaced the power steering pump but it didn't fix the issue. When I took the car to get inspected so I could get it titled, it failed the inspection due to a leak in the power steering high pressure line, the rear third brake light being broke, the top motor mount failing and both the front and back wheel bearings being worn. When I took the car back to the dealership, the owner got in my face and shoved me making me leave.

We have a severe vibration in our 2007 Cadillac Dts that starts at 55mph and also repeats itself as we come to a stop. Think this vibration is always there, but we feel it at these times. This vibration was so severe that on one occasion we were coming down a mountain side in Virginia when it became so violent we barely were able to bring the car under control and bring it to a stop. This is a systemic problem with Dts General Motors advised us that their engineers are very aware of this problem with Dts and are working on the problem, but have not figured out how to repair.. we have done everything they have asked.. realignment, new pads, new rotars, four new tires..they are quite frank that the problem exists, have several complaints, no answers, and there will be no recall as their plan is to solve the problem by attrition. They have stopped making this model as a result. Hope no one has a serious accident before this happens. Our ride and safety are both now compromised on a daily basis.
