Cadillac 2006 DTS
VENICE, FLORIDA -- In April, at 2700 miles and 5 1/2 months old, the battery had to be replaced. On Aug. 29 the battery had to be replaced AGAIN. Took the car to Crest on Aug. 30. Kept it overnight to run tests. Told all tests were good. Our problem is we only take short trips and that is running down the battery. This is a very unacceptable answer. Previous car, 2000 Deville, never had any problems with battery, and our driving habits were the same. What are we supposed to do, drive around for hours just to recharge the batter? That is very stupid.
There are other problems with this car: squealing brakes (told moisture drips on brakes overnight and causes rust---overnight?). Also gas cap locks up.
Very unhappy with this car. bought new car just because other car was 5 years old, and wanted to make sure we had a safe, trouble free car. Have had more problems with this car in 10 months, than in the entire 5 years with the old car
