2000 Cadillac DeVille DTS 4dr Sedan
Some problems with the Service
Stability System computer after about 9
months. In for service 6 times until
the problem was fixed. Also, an orange,
watery spot in my garage below the
engine compartment. They said a bubble
formed in the casting of the engine,
creating a tiny crack. Replaced the
No problems since. (Cadillac did rebate
one of my monthly payments.)
Great looks always turns heads.
A quiet ride, a great sound system,
great acceleration and a beautiful car
have spoiled me the last couple years.
I looked at Mercedes, BMW, Infinity,
Lexus and Lincoln. Even with the
problems in the beginning, I feel I
bought a great vehicle.
Looks great. Handles really well. 300
horsepower will move this vehicle.
Great acceleration above 40MPH.
Very comfortable, especially for a tall
person. Plenty of room in the back
seat. Easy to get in and out. Large
Heated seats in front AND back. Massage
in the front seats.
Rear seat tray/cupholder keeps slamming
shut when braking.
Traction control button is in a
horrible location, under the shifter.
I own a white diamond 2000 DTS with 168,000 miles.
I purchased it with 100,000 miles and since noticed an orange spot on the garage floor that resulted in replacing the water pump that had a seal leaking. I also added the cadillac pellets or barrsleak pellets that cost $3 bucks at napa in the cooling system which is an absolute with the north star engines to avoid leaks external and internal. I replaced the tork sensor at 128,000
that cost $950, the left front rotor assembly and battery. The tork lock sensor is sticking again but don't merit replacing because the check engine light goes out and the gas mileage is great.
I love this car. It is fun car to drive and has lots of power.
