1999 Cadillac DeVille 4dr Sedan


Review

Bought the car new in November 1998. It was great for about 7 years/50,000 miles then started leaking coolant. 16.5 years/135,000 miles into its life it overheats going 15 miles down the road. Happily traded it in a few days ago for a new Prius. Cadillacs seem to be great when new but don't stick around for the duration. Northstar engines are economical and powerful but have issues...done with Cadillac


Favorite Features

Massaging and heated seats...hands down. Back seat is like a couch.


Suggested Improvements

Better engine, more ergonomic exterior design

Review

I drive 80 miles round trip daily to work. I live in northern Maine, 2 hours north of Bangor, me. I've had to plow my way out of my driveway, and out of 2 other roads (2 miles) before I got to main road, at 3:30am. Sometimes i had to plow the main road for miles before it was plowed going through 1 to 2 ft. Drifts. That car never faltered once! I' driven through countless blizzards! That car is the most reliable car I've ever driven. The front wheel drive along with the heavy v8 northstar engine gave the car unbelievable traction. I never worried about being stuck in snow or heavy slush. It was safe consistent and dependable. If I hit a moose it would land on the hood and not on me. Car is bigger than moose!


Favorite Features

Reliability dependability & safety.It gave a great ride and had plenty of power. It is bigger than a moose, moose will land on hood.


Suggested Improvements

Keep the front wheel drive and the 300 hp northstar engine. It gives it great traction. Make it quite a bit bigger than the moose. I like a stick shift on the floor. More sporty!

Review

Have owned for 10 yrs, now at 100,000 miles it still runs and looks like new. Never had a major issue with this car, it's never left me stranded and always starts right up. Everything still works! Can't understand why everyone knocks American car quality!


Favorite Features

Power galore, smooth ride, disconnects you from the road, its like watching the world go by sitting in a first class seat


Suggested Improvements

Needs bigger side view mirrors....handling decent but no F-1 car....stock radio sounds kinda cheap.... watch for blown head gaskets and oil leaks on Northstars

Review

For a car that's 10 years old it still turns heads. I did my research on the northstar before i bought it and heard nothing but horror stories. but at 143,000 miles it runs perfect. it runs so good i wonder if the engine or trans has been rebuilt.but with the high mileage I'm prepared for something to go wrong.


Favorite Features

engine power., gas mileage for a engine its size, digital dash


Suggested Improvements

should have been a rear wheel drive, too expensive to repair but easy to work on, larger fuel tank 18 just to small, cd player should had been standard, don't understand the reason for the air ride suspension because it's to expensive to repair
