2003 Cadillac DeVille 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this car with 89000 miles on it. two weeks after it was bought the problems started. One day while driving, the battery light came and the car shut off. I replaced the battery (what the dealership told me was the ONLY problem). after the new battery it ran fine for about a month then it started again. The dealer told me nothing was wrong with it. Every time i turn on the a/c or heat the car will shut off, even when randomly driving it shuts off. The service tire monitor light came on, fixed that only for it to come back on shortly after. Love the car despite these issues but just wish the dealer would have helped more.


Best Features

Very smooth ride, comfortable for all passengers, all digital gauge cluster, lots of space, overall layout of interior fittings is great.


Worst Features

better MPG ( despite it being a boat of a vehicle), larger turn radius, the timing of the digital gauge cluster ( takes a while for it to switch between lighter and darker modes.

2003 Cadillac DeVille 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

To anyone with a vibration issue. You need to keep the stock Michelin Symmetry's on the car. Once I put new tires on and went to Sullivan Tire multiple times we did it. 0 to 100 MPH, no vibration. Bad experience with Caddy dealer who had to be told to replace back seat control module twice. I wrote it in the P & S agreement the AC in the back didn't work. 1) Tire's (2) Dry boots and a broken axle 3) Broken engine front mount 4) Water pump froze and wiped out all the pully system. (5) Air intake sensor problem 6) Fuel pump float sending unit gone 7) 1-20-11 back in the shop for misfire and fuel 8) Replaced pass. window regulator


Best Features

OK, once I got the vibration issue fixed and took my first road trip it was perfect. Smooth quiet and fast. I guess buying a 1 owner older woman owned always serviced at the caddy dealer didn't pay off for me.


Worst Features

Caddy dealerships should know about never selling a top dollar used car without the stock tires. Located in Woburn MA, skimmped on a pre-sale inspection.

2003 Cadillac DeVille DHS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Overall it's been a fantastic machine. Very easy to drive,comfortable and smooth. Only thing that has broken three times were the window racks that hold the glass panels. Replaced under warranty but still, shouldn't be that fragile or poorly engineered. The gas mileage is unbelievable(18 city/26 hwy) for a car that size. This car will last me a long time and gives me great pleasure in owning and driving.


Best Features

Style is superb and remains up to date with 2009 styling.Most people have no idea the car is six years old. So smooth in driving and on the highway like silk. Great gas mileage. Interior very elegant with excellent sound system.


Worst Features

Improve the strength of the window brackets and put the battery somewhere than under the back seat.

2003 Cadillac DeVille 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I have had this car 7 years, purchased new. I have had very few problems, none major. The only annoying problem is that the car has always vibrated at about 70mph. No one has been able to discover why it does this. Other than that, no complains. We have driven this car on several vacations with 700 800 miles per day. No sweat. Gas mileage is very close to EPA rating both in town and on the highway, usually 18-20 city and 24-26 highway (EPA is 18/27). The 4 valve per cylinder engine lacks good low end torque as does every such engine like this that I have driven. But, if you want to go, hang on. Comfortable, classy, reliable. What else could you want?


Best Features

XM radio, headlights, big knobs on AC, Radio, etc. Very comfortable ride front and rear.


Worst Features

Tone down the auto leveling pump! Get the seat belts off the seats and back on the side posts.
