Cadillac Seville Problems
The trunk pull down switch may fail causing the trunk lid not to close completely. Our technicians tell us that the failed switch can be replaced without changing the complete pull down motor assembly.
One or more heater & AC (HVAC) air delivery and/or temperature mode door actuator may fail. This can result in incorrect air delivery or temperature. If this occurs, fault code(s) stored in the HVAC control module should be available to assist with diagnoses.
The parking brake may not release automatically due to a failed vacuum switch or actuator. Our technicians tell us that if vacuum is supplied to the actuator when the transmission is in gear, the vacuum switch is functioning and replacing the actuator should correct this concern.
The rubber section of an automatic transmission cooler line may develop a fluid leak . In some cases the leaking section of hose can be replaced. In others, the complete cooler line must be replaced to correct this concern.

Cadillac Seville Reviews
bought my 03 sls used with 100K and no engine leaks at all. Beautiful car with all options. Only Problem is a leaking transaxle seal on the drivers side, that really dumps it out when in reverse. Love this car has more power than you'll ever need. So I'm going to pay the 1,400 to fix the seal. To me it'll be worth it.
the cars not bad the main problem is getting abs sensors for it and they go the suspension sys has hard to find noises but show no wear
the water pump will go at 95000 mi the studs snap on the engine front cover when replacing pump
awesome smooth riding car.... luv
I bought a 2000 sls in 2007...it had 82,000 miles then and 125,000 now. I have replaced a coil pack and a heater core but for 125,000 miles the car is in really good shape! I plan on keeping it and doing some custom work to it...really like the look and the ride is awesome...good power too and at 29 m.p.g highway putting it on the road for a trip doesn't cost a fortune.
Great looks, great power, and great ride.
A full size car with that performs very well. The ride is comfortable, but the 1992 Seville handles turns very well. Engine performance is great.
My Seville has less than 100,000 miles on the odometer, but is still 18 years old. Some of the creature comforts are turning into minor annoyances. These can be replaced, however.
My biggest complaint against the car is the color. Dark red exterior with matching dark red interior. That is a lot of red. Steering wheel, seats, dash, carpets, roof liner, all dark red. The body looks great. The interior is comfortable. Just a lot of red.
The repairs are worth it. I will be hanging on to this one until it is time for my next Cadillac.
