Customer Question
Well I want to...

Well I want to purchase a dts Cadillac 2009 but afraid to b/c of what I have heard about the oil leakage. the car has 69,00 miles. The car looks good however, would this be a wise move.

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to discuss this further with you. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

No just have someone to please call me before I made an unwise decision in purchasing a car that I will dread. Thank you.

The oil leak was a issue on the 2006-2008 dts and really wasn't all that common so I think you are fine and it is a good vehicle in my opinion. My goal is to provide 5 star service so please let me know if you have any questions, thanks.
