The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Cadillac DTS is a boardroom on wheels: Six leather chairs keep old men cozy in a wood-paneled room, and steering feels like it's done by committee. A soft ride and roomy interior still form the solid base for the 2009 Buick Lucerne’s appeal.
