2008 Cadillac DTS Real Gas Mileage: Pros
2009 4dr Sedan 275-horsepower 4.6L V8
4-speed automatic FWD
I bought this car almost specifically for my "road" car, for trips, but do occasionally use it around town. I don't know how the other reviewers are driving their cars but I get what I think is great mileage, mid-teens around town and 28-29mgh on trips/hwy at 75MPH. I do try to drive easy to enhance my mileage. see full Cadillac DTS review
