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


Review

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.


Best Features

Bells and whistles although the sensors in the wheels that monitor air pressure are a real pain - too sensitive


Worst Features

Try a new type engine - most folks I tak with say that Caddies are notorious for engine leaks.

Review

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.


Best Features

Nav system, onstar, heated seats


Worst Features

Tire pressure warning system is a pain in the but - way too sensitive

Review

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.


Best Features

Leather, comfortable suspension, memory seats, huge trunk, cheap used sales price


Worst Features

Not so good MPG, steep maintenance cost, needs lots of maintenance
