I have owned a 2000 Cadillac DeVille DHS for about 5 years.
When a favorite relative passed it on to me, it was almost 9 years old and had sat unused in a garage for at least 2 years with just 22,000 miles on it.
Professional mechanics told me I would likely have all kinds of very expensive problems with it and offered to take it off my hands and pay me $2000.
GM was in trouble at the time but I decided to keep the car and take the risk.
With the exception of replacing the battery, tires and overhauling the brakes - they were wrong about every other dire prediction.
In 5 years, I've spent about $5000 in repairs and maintenance on the car.
It's been worth every dollar.

As a child of the sixties, I always admired the iconic Cadillac brand.
Back when I was a kid, a Cadillac was a Cadillac and everything else paled in comparison.
As I approached 45 years old, I was looking to buy a car and looked at everything, from BMW to Jaguar to Mercedes Benz, but my wife had been working for a major cosmetic company and had earned 2 pink Cadillacs in 02 & 04.
That's where I fell in love with the Deville.
It had everything, style, prestige, confort, performance, and reliability.
The DTS ticked all the boxes for what I wanted in my own car.
So I found my bronzemist DTS and brought her home.
5 years later, I'm still in love with her.

I purchased this beauty on ebay with 100,000 miles and the car was a super clean Sarasota, Fla car.
It has all options and is an eye catcher. I first had to replace the tork converter sensor at 128,000 miles $980 and at 168,000 getting an occasional tork sensor code again but the light goes out and mileage is great.
Replaced the left front wheel hub at 105,000 miles and the right is near ready to be replaced.
The steering wheel programing is in need of fixing because the wheel don't move up on exit but down.
The CD player rejects and gives an alarm code.
The dash cover rolled up on the edges which is common on those models but was simple to repair with adhesive and replace. Love the car

I bought my caddy in 2003 put about $1200 into it, it now has 128,000 miles replaced belts hoses flushed anti, replace tires changed fuel filter,this was all done in 2008 when it had 90,000 miles, i change the oil every 5000 miles, and the car still gives me about 28 miles to the gallon on the highway,and 19 in the city, yeah i put 3 qts of oil every 2000 miles but thats a good thing that the car uses oil, if a engine didn't burn oil then you had something to worry about. I'm very happy with the car that i now bought a 2005 DHS for myself and the wife uses the 2000 caddy to and from work. The car is just awesome and i would never buy anything but a caddy.

Bought car new in Dec. 2000. Never any problems - only oil changes, batteries, and tires required. All gadgets still work great, but service engine light has come on - transmission torque converter code. Mileage has not dropped, but light still worries me. Since dealer wants over $3K to fix what is now a $5K car, I will probably buy a foreign luxury car (Lexus, Audi, Mercedes). Refuse to buy from any company that took government bailout money. GM and banks should perish for stealing from taxpayers.
The 2000 DeVille is all new inside and out and showcases new automotive technologies such as Night Vision, Ultrasonic Rear Parking Assist and the newest generation of GM's StabiliTrak traction-control system. It also boasts improvements to the Northstar V8 that not only improve fuel economy, but make this engine operate even smoother than before.
