  • Safety
  • Pros

    Huge interior, traditional luxury, side-impact airbags, fresh interior ergonomics, Northstar V-8 engine

    Rides like a cruise ship in 20-foot swells, low and unsupportive seating positions

Concours receives stability enhancement and road texture detection as part of its Integrated Chassis Control System (ICCS), while a new d'Elegance model picks up where the defunct Fleetwood left off.

The best caddy

Vehicle: 1997 Cadillac DeVille Concours 4dr Sedan

The DeVille Concours is the clear winner if you want that full luxury feel, but with agility. It is a flawless car in terms of maintenance and quality. I wish someone now could make such a luxurious interior.

Vehicle: 1997 Cadillac DeVille Concours 4dr Sedan

My DeVille had roughly 900 miles and the front tire rim and all went flying across 3 lanes of traffic. I bought the car new off the dealer's show room floor and its title stated 3 miles, but the odometer read 35 miles. I drove it for less than 5 minutes when we noticed a vibration in the front end, took the car back 5 or 6 times then the front tire came flying off. I wanted paper work for all the times the car was back in the shop, but the dealer wouldn't give it to us since they KNEW for a fact they sold us a lemon. With 35 miles on the car somnone from the dealer had to know there was a vibration and the car had flaws, also a new car should have 5 miles or less when titled we got hosed big time.

The '97 DeVille has a very comfortable ride. It is also very reliable. It has a great sound system -- Bose comes standard, I guess. Its gas mileage is actually decent, considering how big a car it is. If I drive "sensibly," I can get about 28 mpg on the freeway and about 18-19 on city streets.

Excellant Quality. Little trouble. Glad latter years required regular unleaded rather tha premium.




Needs improvement

Vehicle: 1997 Cadillac DeVille Concours 4dr Sedan

Cadillac has a long way to go to be considered in the same class as European automobiles. The soft ride and mediocre handling, although improved, do not bode well for Cadillac to seriously compete with other luxury marques. Dealers do not seem very helpful, which is unfortunate, since I've spent quite a bit of time there.




Caddy is over rated

Vehicle: 1997 Cadillac DeVille Concours 4dr Sedan

I just bought this off some guy at what i thought was a great bargain until I drove it home. The computer does not stop with error messages: "service ride control", a/c refridgerent too low (even though I just filled it), my odometer stopped moving, my ac doesn't work anymore, my radiator leaks and I have only owned it three days!!! Above all, it won't go into fourth gear. On the highway, for example, it stays in third. Worst purchase ever. Should have kept my Town Car.
