blower motor on air conditioner and heater comes on by its self while setting in the garage ,runs the battery down
IT'S A CADILLAC IF YOU LIKE THE IMAGE THAT GOES ALONG WITH COMFORT AND A SMOOTH POWERFULL ENGINE GET IT. YES IT'S BAD ON GAS BUT ONLY IN THE CITY. YES THE REPAIRS ARE COSTLY,BUT YOU'RE NOT DRIVING A CHEVY. THINGS WILL BREAK JUST LIKE ON EVERY OTHER 11 Y. OLD CAR,BUT REMEMBER IT'S A CADILLAC AND WHO EVER GOT THIS CAR BACK IN '97 HAD TO PAY 45.000 TO 48.000 FOR IT.
Great power & smooth ride but initially had a few problems w/delco battery(replaced 3 in 7 yrs); replaced window/steering stability switches in first 4 yrs, but covered under warranty; reset AC compressor restart codes due to freon/ac oil leaks; recently vent blower fan went out..of course car is 13 yrs/I'm original owner! Still Luv it though, can't beat its handling & mountain of features/gadgets/comfort/Bose stereo system!!
This has been a great car to own. Have had some trouble with the A/C system, and now a rough idle problem but overall a wonderful car to drive. The northstar engine has 113,000 on it and is still dry and does not use oil. I do regular oil changes at the indicated intervals and always use premium fuel. Recently changed plugs but the ones I took out looked like the ones I put in and I know they are the original plugs. The water pump went out about 4000 miles ago but that was both c heap and easy to replace myself. I have been replacing hoses, (vaccum and water), when I can as they seem to be getting hard and brittle with the heat associated with the florida panhandle weather. Dash has some heat cracks forming as well. Great vehicle overall.
