Side Blind Zone Alert: Makes driver aware of unforeseen objects.
The Lane Departure Warning (LDW) system engages above 35 mph. A green light indicates that the system is turned on and working. Should the driver cross a detected lane marking without signaling, the light flashes amber while an alarm beeps three times. The system is designed to alert drivers so they can take appropriate action to move the vehicle back into their own lane. To avoid nuisance alerts, the system is designed to not provide an alert if the turn signal is on or if the driver makes a sharp maneuver. Thankfully, the driver can also switch it off, in which case the light goes out entirely. The system uses a camera located between the inside rearview mirror and the windshield to detect lane markings on the road and alert drivers when they inadvertently stray from the lane. The Side Blind Zone Alert system uses radar to sweep an 11-foot zone on either side of the vehicle, in other words, about one lane over. The zone starts at each side mirror and reaches back about 16 feet. With the system engaged, an amber symbol lights up in the outside
The Cadillac DTS is a big car. Its 207.6 inches in length, making it five inches longer than the Escalade full-size SUV, and is almost four inches longer than a BMW 7 Series and 2.6 inches longer than the latest long-wheelbase Mercedes-Benz S-Class sedan. It's also wide, more than two inches wider than an STS.
Driving Impressions: Smooth and powerful, glides over the road in supreme comfort. The DTS handles well for a big car.
