2003 Cadillac DeVille Problems
The engine may develop oil leaks from the lower crankcase portion of the engine block. Our technicians tell us that the engine must be removed from the vehicle to properly repair this oil leak.
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 torque converter clutch (TTC) may stop working due to an internal transmission failure. The Check Engine Light will illuminate if this occurs. Our technicians tell us the transmission will require dis-assembly to correct this concern.
The crankshaft position sensor may fail causing the engine to stall intermittently, the Check Engine Light may or may not illuminate.

I purchased my 2003 Deville DTS w/ 23000 miles on it. After having this car I highly doubt that I will ever purchase another Cadillac. The day I took the car home the window modulator went out, and since then two window regulators have stopped working, I have to replace my idle control valve, my interior lights won't come on, when I lock the doors with my remote the alarm goes off 10 min. afterward, my stability and traction control indicators come on for no reason at all, when I took the car to get ONE of the regulators replaced they took the door panel off and found MASKING TAPE holding certain parts together...It's a nice car but it's not worth the trouble and money.
Owned the car for 4 years, bought it with 45000mi. Have replaced 3 window regulators, cam and crank position sensors, gas cap, blower motor and related electronics, the awful Michelin tires that came with the car, and a wheel speed sensor.
It's comfortable, and it looks good. But it's a money pit - plain and simple. There are more reliable cars with similar comfort and convenience for less money. Owned a 94 DeVille before this one, will not own another one again.
I purchased the car w/ 38,000 miles 2 years ago and I have 50,000 miles now. I was informed I need major transmission work.
The car is in like new condition. I can't believe I have to spend that kind of $$ on a car w/ 50,000 miles. This is my 2nd Cadillac and most likely my last.
