Review of the 2001 Cadillac DeVille

  • With its strong powerplant, excellent road manners and well-appointed interior, the DeVille is one of the best full-size luxury sedans on the market.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Northstar V8 power, two tons of traditional American opulence.

  • Cons

    Frumpy image, techno-wizardry could prove expensive to repair.

  • What's New for 2001

    After a complete redesign last year, changes for 2001 are minimal at best. A tire pressure monitoring system is available, Graphite replaces Parisian Blue and Polo Green paint schemes, Dark Gray is added as an interior color and all Devilles are now certified throughout the U.S. as low-emissions vehicles.

Vehicle: 2001 Cadillac DeVille DHS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I've owned many cars during my life, but this car is by far the worst car I've ever owned. It is nothing more than a money pit. It had less than 20K mi when I bought it in '05. I've put less than 30K mi on the car since owning it. In that time, I've spent $5700 in repairs. That is awful for a car that has fewer than 60K miles on it. In the 5 yrs I've owned the car, it has cost me $1100/annually in repairs. That's pathetic. Those repairs consist of complete axle work, brakes, rotors & shocks, new transmission w/ all 4 motor mounts, new starter, window problems & many more problems, not to mention that it drinks oil. I got rid of that pc of junk & bought a Honda! No more GM for me. No Thanks!

Vehicle: 2001 Cadillac DeVille DHS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I bought this car used last year with 52K miles. I was able to transfer the extended warranty to my name and got 6 months worth of coverage. The car has been worry free. The only things I've done are oil changes, replacement of the original tires at 55K miles, wheel alignment and 60K maintenance service. I would have never imagined myself driving a Cadillac, but this car is fantastic, esp. 28 MPG on the highways. It does like oil, but the car display tells you when to add it and the dealer told me this is typical of Cadillacs and GMs in general.




The best cadillac model i've

Vehicle: 2001 Cadillac DeVille DHS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I purchased my DeVille DHS in February and so far it has been the best car purchased I've made. I've owned over five Cadillac's, all of them have been great cars but the DHS is the absolute best. The smooth handling, climate control, a/c, OnStar, and the memory seats stole my heart. I hope to keep this car for a very long time.

It's a great car

Vehicle: 2001 Cadillac DeVille DHS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I have been very happy with this car. I am a widow who is very mechanically illiterate and I have had no trouble or worry with it. If I do not keep it, I will get another Cadillac. It is very comfortable and the interior is particularly nice I think. I like the "extra" gadgets it has, like the information panel.




Love it!

Vehicle: 2001 Cadillac DeVille DHS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

After three prior DeVilles, all basic, the DHS was a very, very pleasant surprise. I should not have deprived myself of the luxury package. It has made me even more of a DeVille lover. I worry about the 06 DTS, since I love a bench seat in the front. Don't even want to trade this one!




My dream car

Vehicle: 2001 Cadillac DeVille DHS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

This is my 4th Deville -- an 89 (250,000 miles before trade), 92 (170,000 miles), 2002 (yep, I bought it, then it was totalled in a read end accident, and I was told - and believe - that if it hadn't been a Caddy, my wife and both would have been dead!), and then, to replace it I found this DHS 2001, with fewer miles than the 2002. I've had four of them, and I wouldn't go back to the base model, although I loved them all. The luxury features in this DHS make far more difference than I ever thought they would.
