1990 Cadillac DeVille 4dr Sedan


I purchased this car whe it was twelve years old with 100,000 miles on it. It was very comfortable to ride in, its handling was good (for a car this size), and its power was adequate. This was the first year of multport fuel injection bumping the HP from 155 to 180, something the car definately needed. The backseat is HUGE! The power pulldown trunk is a cool feature. The digital dash was nice, as the analog only goes to 85 MPH. Its gas mileage averaged 15 MPG, in combined city/hwy driving. With high gas prices and these cars requiring premium, it wasn't a good mix. Its body has a nice classic shape. The rear-window is limo-like. Its small, and high rear shelf gives the car a more "private-car" look/feel. The A/C controls are oddly placed thhough.

Favorite Features

I like how it has power everything: windows/locks/dual seats, dual mirrors, pull-down trunk. electronic climate control. These are things, that are, of course, available on even economy cars these days, but 16 years ago was a different situation. The digital fuel gauge was nice as well.

Suggested Improvements

If this was still 1990: add traction control, relocate the A/C controls to the main dash - the radio is left to fill the entire dash, very strange. Give it additional horsepower HP, yes this year added 25 HP from last year, but a car this size needs over 200. The fear of front seats should be power as well only the bottom is power.
