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.

Out of lots of money

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Cadillac DeVille DTS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

Fun to drive handles great for big car but have had so sink thousands of dollars into repairs in the shop every 3-4 months Northstar engine is crazy expensive to work on if needed. No doubt will never buy a dts again.




Leaky leaky

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

This is a great riding car and a looker, too. BUT: last year at 73000 miles I had to get oil pan gaskets replaced - $1300. Last month at 83,000 miles, the northstar has a leaky head gasket. That'll be another $1400 plus. Sad that such an expensive car develops problems so soon. I've driven Buick lesabres passed 160,000 miles with no such problems. This is my LAST Caddy.




Im lovin'it

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

I was a Buick man till I got the great deal on this used 2002 dts. Under $10K. Gripes: 1-power steering pump quit 3 months after purchase. 2- heating element in top 1/2 of driver's seat doesn't get warm enough. Other than that, I love it. ride is better than my old park avenue and lesabers. I accept the lower mileage as a trade-off for the comfort and great ride. Some portions on the instrument panel and nav system are hard to see if the sun is behind you though.

Plush ride, needs service every

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Cadillac DeVille DTS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

We got the car in April 2008 with 60k miles. My wife has a 70 miles commute every day, so we are putting a lot of milage on the vehicel. Plush ride, very comfortable. However, every 4 months or so there had been issues - mostly with the electronic. Every visit in the shop is at least $700. No wonder that you can by those used ones so dirt cheap - you need to invest $3,000 or more every year just to keep them running! Gas milage is about 19 MPG on premium gas (the poster who reported 30+ miles is clearly smoking something!) with a mix of city & highway.




Love the road

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

The Cadillac DTS is a dependable car that is strong enough to caress any type of weather. There are enough sensors or more than enough to make you aware of whats going on with your car. I am satisfied enough to purchase the next one.




Smooth as silk

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

This car is the nicest ride around for the money. The power of the Northstar engine may surprise some people and the interior is as plush as it gets. It handles well for a car of its size. The monochrome paint job gives the car a sleek, sophisticated look. You can't go wrong with black on black.
