First Caddy... but not last!
By Deville owner on
2004 Cadillac DeVille 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
At forty-one, I'm probably younger than the average Deville owner. But with four children and a wife, I needed a vehicle that seated six. Few choices exist outside an SUV or minivan. I recently purchased a used '04 w/ 57k. In the short time I've owned it, I've found it to be comfortable, fun to drive and surprisingly economical. I average 29 mpg highway (around 18 city). The NorthStar V8 & trans are smooth and quite. While I'm not sure I would have paid $40k + for this car four years ago, the poor re-sale value puts it in a class by itself for a used car! I will own other Cadillac's in the future. I'm also fond of the '08 CTS & DTS. However, the new STS styling needs to be bolder.
For the price, more upscale interior materials should be used along with greater standard features. Those features should include moon roof, heated/cooled seats & wheel, navigation center, park assist, etc...
