My 1994 Cadillac Seville is wonderfully powerful and gets me down the road in fine style. It has quick acceleration with it's V8 Northstar engine. I have 135,000 miles on the car now and the interior is still in showroom condition. I recently replaced the shaft on the torque converter (cracked), installed a new water pump and new battery. She still runs strong and steady at this mileage and I hope to have her for years to come.
I love the light bar across the back of the trunk. Also, the seats are very comfortable and the accessories are adequate. Love the extra large truck space, too! She meets my needs; even holds my coffee cup! :>)
Auto-dimming headlights would be nice. More durable exterior paint would help also as it tends to chip/ding very easily even with the best of care. All-in-all, she is okay by me and suits my road requirements.
Bought my SLS at 33,000 miles, now at
91,000 miles -- very reliable, but
repairs can be expensive -- the
extended warranty saved me, but has now
expired. I could buy another car, but
this one still looks new and drives
great. Dreading future repairs.
Warm Zebrano wood dash and console --
absolutely beautiful touch. Northstar
is great. 26 MPG on highway. Still
Needs better sound isolation, and the
engineer who designed the AC controls
with no recirculation/exterior option
should be fired and his pension
slashed. Don't the people who design
these cars ever drive them?
Would highly recommend extended
warranty if you buy. Purchased with
62,000 Replaced, alternator,
transmission, struts, within three
years. Also had major oil leak a 3K
repair. Thanks to extended warranty I
paid 800.00 out of pocket on 7k worth
of repairs. All repairs are expensive
expecially at the Cadillac dealer.
I've owned 2 Cadillacs so far, and
they were absolutely wonderful
Automobiles until they hit 70,000
miles, both vehicles disintegrated
before my eyes. I have paid more in
repairs for the Seville than I paid
for it in the first place. In the last
year I have had to replace the
transmission, water pump, shocks and
struts, power window motor, front
brake calipers and rotors.
Northstar has tremendous power and
Quality control is severly distressed
at Cadillac, the items that went wrong
on both of mine should never have
happened. I could almost understand if
I drove these cars hard, but thats not
the case. I work 6 miles from home and
generally the only time we used them
was for my work.
