Review of the 2002 Cadillac DeVille

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

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Northstar V8 power, spacious and comfortable cabin, two tons of traditional American opulence.

  • Cons

    Frumpy image, techno-wizardry could prove expensive to repair when the warranty runs out.

  • What's New for 2002

    For 2002, the DeVille gets a host of minor refinements, many of which won't be available until later in the year. New shocks and strut valving have been added to shore up the ride quality, leather seating is standard on all models and an optional advanced navigation system with voice-recognition capabilities is offered. A Bose 4.0 sound system can now be ordered, while digital satellite radio provisions will be available later in the year. Dual-stage airbag inflators, an increased oil change interval and a new wreath and crest Cadillac badge round out the rest of this year's changes.

Vehicle: 2002 Cadillac DeVille DHS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

Never again

Vehicle: 2002 Cadillac DeVille DHS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I first purchased a 2001 Deville and turned it in under the Lemon Law within 6 months (26 times in the shop). We purchased a 2002 replacement. This car was good for about 35,000 miles. Then it started using oil, had to replace 2 seat heaters, water pump, and two starters. Since then it has been one senor after another, cruise control module, two more starters, flywheel, ball joint, etc, etc. I will drive this until it stops to get my investment back, however I could never be compelled to purchase another Cadillac in this lifetime! Not worth the cost outlay or the frustration level. I have also learned Cadillac, as a company, is not concerned about its customers - horrendous experience!




Best all around car i

Vehicle: 2002 Cadillac DeVille DHS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I purchased my DHS in May of 08 with 58K miles on it. The only issue I have had is to replace the a/c actuator and I knew that going in. My car list new for 50,000 and I bought it for $7500. If you shop around you can make some great buys. Most of my friends say "why the bigh car". Answer: Comfort, safty, and great fuel mileage. Just did a Round Trip to KC and back today, 317 miles. Got 26.3 at 70-75 mph.

Vehicle: 2002 Cadillac DeVille DHS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

This vehicle is exceptional all the way around!. One problem area is A/C fan assembly. This car has had two replacements, one in 2003 and one in 2006. The module in the fan housing/assembly, that controls fan speed, fails without warning. The vehicle is garaged in Florida.
