What's the rest of the fleet like? Power train good (so far) but stupid stuff - like mechanical mechanism for passenger window replaced at 45000 miles, wheel bearings replaced at 48000 miles, brake sensors corroded and replaced 46000 - all out of warranty, of course. Trunk developed leak at 43000. I buy one owner-off lease vehicles with about 25000 miles on them. Drove Lincoln Continentals for 10 years, bought extended warranties - never once used them - cars each died after 175000 miles. This car would cost a mint to drive 175000 miles. Very disappointing for quality and reliability. Cadillac, you've got a long way to go to be perceived as a quality vehicle.
Quality and reliability of mechanical and electronic components.
I drive my DeVille on the open road and in the city. It has the smoothest ride ever. I drive 30,000 miles per year. The DeVille is the most comfortable car that I have ever owned. Its gas mileage is dependent upon the speed you drive. I have driven it 100,000 miles with few problems, none serious. I have never been left sever stranded or towed etc. I had problems with the air conditioner fan and a few interior pieces had to be replaced. Otherwise, this is a very good, A+++ car.
The very good handling, excellent brakes, and how it is so smooth, quiet, and easy to drive.
It should have XM radio from the factory. Also, it should have memory mirrors and seats.
Good car except that at 15000 miles, Cadillac had to rebuild engine/installed new pistons and rings due to high oil consumption. No problems since. Now have 38000 miles. Excellent road car. Not happy with the resale value. Depreciates too fast. If I buy another Cadillac, I'm going to look for a late model with low mileage that has already taken the depreciation hit.
At 15,000 miles, my car was burning a quart of oil every 900 miles. Cadillac refused to install a new engine, but rebuilt the old engine instead installing new pistons and rings. My car now has 35,000 miles and runs okay but the gas mileage dropped considerably from what it was before the overhaul. I will never buy another Cadillac and probably won't buy a GM car again. I'm currently considering some high end Japenese cars.
This is a comfortable, good road car
Cadillac needs to provide better treatment of customers if they want to keep them. They should have replaced the engine rather than rebuilding the old one. Their treatment as far as I'm concerned was cheap. As stated above, I'll never buy a Cadillac again.
