Default Got me an '06 Caddy DTS for the day

Bonneville'* in the shop, dealer set me up with Enterprise. Just so happens they had a DTS they needed to go back up to the town where my dealer is. So I have it unitl tonight

First impressions: very nice ride...a little smoother and plush then the Bonnie but not like the old Caddies.....it actually feels a lot like my Bonnie...I think it'* very close to the same wheelbase...trunk is bigger...leather is nicer Interior is simple but very nicely done....has good power up top, probably more then the Bonnie but on the low end the Bonnie would eat it for lunch.
Overall a very nice car

It'* been sitting in the parkinglot here at work all day.....not much fun...then after work I have to go bring it back :(

At lunch a bunch of the guys I work with came over and checked it out.

No heated seats I think...I didn't see a button for it. I believe this is the base model. No navi...seats are almost identical to my Bonnie....front and rears....except I believe I have a few more adjustments.

do you then get your car back? or do they give you a ford or something.

Well, guess what? I went to pick it up last night and they still didn't do the intermediate shaft!! So I'm driving the caddy for another day or so

You got lucky on the loaner car, when I totalled my 01 Grand Am they gave me a Toyota Echo to drive for 3 months. Man I would have loved it if they had a Bonneville on the lot that I could have driven till I got another car.
