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.

2002 Cadillac DeVille Reviews
It is unfortunate that this car which my wife loves is such an maintenance nite-mare! Purchased in 2005 with 28K miles, now 8 years later and 107k miles, I have spent $12,200 in repairs, maintenance and tires. Do not purchase a 2000 - 2006 Deville as they are all ranked below average in reliability by Consumer Reports. Without a doubt the worst car decision I have ever made. The upside with this car is the great highway comfort, roomy back seat and the huge trunk that will carry all your stuff to Fl every year.
I just bought my Deville 2002 so far so good all these BAD reviews are worrying me, i had owned a 1997 and fan went out and blew head gasket with in a month of buying it used in 2012 soooooo I'm trying it again with this 2002 Deville. will update if any problems occure
I have owned a 2001 Deville for 6 years now. I put a lot of miles a week on it and it has proven to be extremely reliable. I currently have 185,000 miles. I find the maintenance to be very easy with the OBD system telling you what is wrong. All repairs have been easy and low cost. My Cadillac actually costs less than my bosses honda which is a POS. I am doing some maintenance now that I wish I did earlier such as put new sparkplugs and change the transmission fluid to the new Dexron VI. If you neglect the oil changes your going to pay dearly.
I have had to replace all the window regulators and it is only difficult the first time, very easy to do once you have it down.
Toni back again:!!!!!
I bought my Caddy brand new 2000 loved it loved it.
Now it is a nightmare from hell.
GM better check with their people who have purchased their caddies.
I think they make them last until a certain time and then everyting
eventually will break down and you would have to sell the car or get a new one (I hope it is not a caddy again) I loved the car and now it is not even worth the repairs (I maintained this car like it was my child). At this time I can not afford a new car or even a used one so I am almost forced to fix the unbelevable prices to fix it. Caddy dealers should tell you that the car will break down guaranteed witin the next 2 to 3 years and then after look out an avalanch of break downs. Soory I am so negative but I am a single woman just trying to make a decent living with a beautiful car that breaks down with something all of the time. Just Me signing off for now. Will let you know if I get truly disgusted and buy a new car (not a Caddy that is for sure).
bought new... overall very low maintenance...110,000 miles now and the repairs are starting to outweigh its value..overdrive sensor needs replacing(in the transmission)....air conditioner compressor has a bad bearing....fuel pump is making noise...these are all costly repairs i have been putting off...but overall have been very satisfied with the car...it still looks and drives like new...as far as the window regulators...it's a common problem to ALL GM cars and trucks...having owned several i have replaced a total of 14 window regulators in the past 10 years....
