Summary:

All told, it cannot match Cadillac's DTS

Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

We had the car for rental during vacation. Those are now common as rental cars, and are inferior to the Cadillacs that were previously made available by the same rental car company.

Suspensions are comfortable (better than Mercedes, nearly as good as Cadillac's), however all the seats are pretty uncomfortable as they don't match body's shape. Furthermore the headrests in front are only there for safety purpose as the can only be moved vertically.

Power and handling is good enough.

There are many plastic pieces that do not look too good in the interior. An annoying noise as the car rides on bumpy roads seems to comes from the front suspensions.

Otherwise the car is quiet except above 50mph, where road noise is heard, and especially above 65mph where the engine begins to be heard.

Additionally, that engine when it's heard has an unpleasant sound that cannot match Cadillac's engine.

On the outside however, the car looks beautiful, although its bumpers are very soft and easily damaged, only by touching it with your finger.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

That car is has way more class and durability than any new Cadillac. At least the Town Car has a frame, unlike the Cadillac and japanese garbage. The Town Car is a throwback to the 1980s when cars were built much better and safer. Many people are surprised that I have this love for the Town Car and 80s cars, because I'm only 18 but they truly are safer and better built than any other new car on the road. The only Cadillac that could compete would be a 1980s Fleetwood Brougham (RWD).
