think its a wonderful car,yes like any other mode of transportation it will require maintenance. I would say if one doesn't want to do repairs,buy new and trade early. These cars represent a time when this country made great products, the ride the comfort ,the extra horsepower when you need it all within your reach. Personally, I own two Devilles, and wouldn't trade them . I actually enjoy the fact I can go out open the hood ,address a problem without the need of computers, which is where we are today. Finally think about this, your caddy and mine too, has features, like auto on headlights, and lights on with wipers ,that new 2014 -current cars don't come with, so next time its raining like a mother, and that brand new car behind car you sneaks up on your because the engineers today say features older cadillacs have are not really necessary..
thanks for accepting my question, recently a penny fell into my cigarette lighter, I think it must have blown a fuse, where can I find the proper fuse? I do not smoke, but I need it for gps. thank you for your attentionb
a penny fell into the cig. lighter, I suspect a fuse, where can I find it.
My 1997 Cadillac Deville has 224,000 miles on it and still running stronge, this is my fourth cadillac a 1968 Devill Convertible a 1970 Deville Convertible and 1977 Coupe Deville and I will buy another cadillac, yes they cost more than a Chevy to repair but it's a "Cadillac" and I do most of the repairs on it myself.
My 1997 Cadillac deville which only has 72,000 miles has a shot A/C compressor. Don't know why. I read about a recall but want to know if anyone out there can give me information about this or perhaps has had the same problem.
fOR A OLDER MODEL CAR IT DOES WELL,I'M AT 174,000MI.CHANGED THE RADIATOR DID A NICE TUNE UP,IT RUNS GREAT.THE PROBLEM I'M HAVING IS THE COMPUTER DETECTION SYSTEM.ITS TELLING ME THE ENGINE HAS LOW OIL PRESSURE WHEN THE ENGINE INTERNAL TEMP REACHES 222F.THE MESSAGE INDICATOR WILL THEN SAY "STOP ENGINE",BUT WHEN I PUSH THE GAS IT RESETS ITSELF BACK TO NORMAL.I DONT KNOW IF THERES A ENGINE PROBLEM OR NOT,THE OIL LEVEL IS FINE,ENGINE IS NOT MAKING ANY UNCOMMON NOISES.IM STUCK ON ITS EITHER THE OIL PUMP OR OIL PRESSURE SENSOR IS FAILING. DEL MACK A DIZZLE!
Rides nice and smooth , love to drive this car. good gas milage
great looking car but Suppension suck (air shocks are a joke and cost big $$ to replace) good in the snow bad on gas, i give it 5 out of 10
I must agree with the majority of reviews and say that these cars were a poor design. I had nothing but problems with it. It was one thing after another and I mean that literally I would fix something and within at most two weeks something else would need repair or replacement. And the repairs and parts are expensive. These cars are a perpetual progect car.
This Car like all the previous Cadillac are a an example of bad enginneering. Too much crap on these models Rebuilt at about 60,000 rebuilt trsnsmission and torque converte about 96,000 the ABS control module blu-up and the hot oil damaged the battery and other electrical cables around it. The rear suspension are too weeak for to carry 4 passangers and the outo-leveling suspension leak air. Driven only locally and never stressed with long trips,always garaged. A real crap of bad design. No wonder why Japan and other non USA mfg have a better reputation. Plus the repair cost is high for a domestic car. I think with the repairs I could have bought 3 more reliable foreign cars.
i like this car but to much problems
i love this car and its in great shape you just need to know how to take care of them
I have a 1997 cadillac deville one major problem the lifeter are bad cannt fix i try everthing other then that great car
These cars are pieces of crap. they need way too much tlc and theres too much crap on them that can break down . way too much electronic garbage on them . these cars are junk boxes
The engine and drivetrain work great, until electronics mess up. But I don't blame the engine for that. That is why I gave the electrical a poor rating.
I have had the car for 6 months and have driven it 12,000 miles. Love the car but did have to replace the altenator and batterie. I think the car sat for a long time because it only had 60,000 miles on it. I did purchase a two year warrenty which covered the altenator. I will need brake pads soon.
Bought used with about 40K on it. My 4th Cadillac. Now at 123 K. Always had front-end bottoming out easily with deep dips in roadway intersections and learned to drive it accordingly. Still own and like it. Still looks and drives like new with few repairs needed over the years. One of the better cars I've owned for sure.
Purchased in 2004 with 46k miles. Tranny went first, then a head gasket at 67k miles! Now has 138k miles after much maintenance! Premium fuel onnly, many repairs performed. Should have bought that Lincoln Towncar! Resale or trade-in value? What's that? !
