1995 Cadillac Seville STS 4dr Sedan


Review

I just bought a 95 STS. This car is amazingly comfortable and great ride. It is powerful engine rolls this huge car well. I am very impressed with it and working on getting the stereo and other parts upgraded to my specifications. Looking to get white rim wheels for it at some point if I find ones that fit the bill.


Favorite Features

The engine on this car is amazing. It needed some services and once fixed right; this car is a monster drive.


Suggested Improvements

Better mag wheels and stereo. Otherwise, this car is a great buy.

1995 Cadillac Seville SLS 4dr Sedan


Review

I fell in love with the Seville the first time I saw on in the mid 1990s. I bought my first, a 1994 SLS in 2002, Blue/Blue, 24k miles, yes 8 years old and 24k miles. Loved the car for 6 years and over 100k miles until it developed a bad engine knock in NWT, Canada. Did not have the funds or service option so I sold it cheap. The only major problem I had with the car was oil leaks, which I have heard is common w/Northstar. Wasted 2-4 grand trying to fix it. Last month I bought my second SLS, a 1995 Green/beige w/carriage top. This one had only 21.4k miles anc cost $5,000. A new Civic at the dealership was $20 grand. No brainer!!


Favorite Features

I am going to drive this one easier than the first, no more 70 to 100 mpg to give the 'finger' to tailgaters on the Interstate. LOL Hopefully this will avoid the oil leaks problem, none so far, and if it does I will just keep some spare quarts in the trunk. This car has been getting 17.6-18 mpg city and expecting 28 mpg on long trips. As soon as I get out of stop an go driving, even on 45-50 mph roads, the average MPG starts to climb! Love the power, mileage, trip computer, heated seats on this one, styling. Oh, EVERYTHING!

1995 Cadillac Seville STS 4dr Sedan


Review

This car was purchased when 2 yrs old. It is the most awesome vehicle in so many ways. When you compare the features it came with in 1995 to the features offered today, it was way ahead of its time. The body style is head turning and it is difficult to tell what year it is from the body style as the cts today looks very similar. Maintenance has been minimal to non existent. I only have 80,000 miles on her but I too, will never own any other make of car other than Cadillac. This vehicle is a blast to drive on the interstate, it is a cruising machine, quiet, smooth and gets up the asphalt when necessary! It has all you could ever want, looks,dependability and power. I would highly recommend!


Favorite Features

Heated windshield, seats,bose system, Chorme wheels and of course the Northstar Engine.


Suggested Improvements

My only suggestion would have been to continue to offer the heated windshield. They didn't offer all wheel drive in 1995 but they do now and that would have been nice as I live in the Northern part of US.

1995 Cadillac Seville STS 4dr Sedan


Review

I ordered her new in '95/have LOVED her ever since. She is still one of THE hottest driving & looking cars around (shale w/custom navy coach top & RR grille). I STILL constantly get compliments on her- even from the younger generation. Loaned her to my son/thought I'd never get her back. Essentially routine maintenace with a few expected things now that she just turned over 100Kmiles & is just NOW after 15 YEARS due for her first tune up. In ALL OF 15 yrs, have replaced a/c compressor,1 set of brakes EVER,radiator core,water pump @ 70K miles& just recently, the transmission at99Kmiles/a brand new one cost 1700. - figure that's pretty cheap after 15 years of essentially trouble free driving! -


Favorite Features

The comfort, the POWER, good visibility, the classic HOT good looks to her lines. I'll probably keep her forever -never had a car I liked as much. Always a head turner and could always outrun most anything, and still gets 17-19 city / 27-28 highway. No fuss - just get in and drive.


Suggested Improvements

after 15 years I am STILL happy with her, every time I think about trading her off, I can never find anything to compare to the beauty, speed, weight, safety and low maintenance. Found out 4 yrs ago, she will run perfectly fine on mid octaine gas/ does NOT need premium that I used all these years

Review

i bought this car 6 years ago with almost 100,000 miles on it. it now has almost 150k and it is still awesome. super fast! and so advanced technically for a 95! considering the 300hp v8 engine it has surprisingly good fuel economy. the only thing ive replaced is the LED third brake light which is a common problem and the fuel line which is actually a recalled gm problem that gm paid for. i love this car and will miss it when im gone. it is the best purchase of my life! im a cadillac man forever now.


Favorite Features

northstar engine, wheels, power air locking trunk, smooth ride, power, on board computer


Suggested Improvements

Review

I'm not rich so I have to wait years before I can get the car I want. I found this car with 80,000 miles on it a one owner and looks bring new. Still has the sicker price from 1995, $46,720 that was a lot of money for a car. But now that I got one it's worth every penny of that. The Bose system is great. The gas mileage is OK 20.4 in town. I would buy a new one today if I could afford it.


Favorite Features

Bose system, heated seats, sporty looks, and Northstar power plant.

Review

I have had the car since almost new. It has needed a few repairs fuel pump after 10 years, HVAC blower/fan blower motor after 10 years, engine fan after 13 years. I don't regard these as major items. The vehicle rides great (after replacing sway bar bushings $10) these make the car sound so much better after going over bumps. Should be replaced every few years as they get hard and allow the noise to get in. Car is excellent! I would purchase another when I think there is no more life in this one.


Favorite Features

Engine and tranny


Suggested Improvements

Fuel mileage, ease of maintenance. Anything in engine compartment that needs to be replaced needs to have engine lowered.

Review

Excellent car overall. Had a little trouble with computers at first, but the dealer backed it 100%. It really turns heads going down the street! Lots of power but could have higher fuel economy.


Favorite Features

Moon roof, heated leather seats, power moving down the road.


Suggested Improvements

Premium fuel is a real drag on the wallet!

Review

I bought my 1995 Cadillac Seville in 1999 when it had 72,000 miles on it. It now has 157,000 miles and is going strong. It looks great and drives wonderfully. I have had one small repair done on it. I replaced tires with Michelins, and that improved the handling greatly. I recently bought a 2001 Cadillac STS and passed this car on to my son. I only hope the newer one is half the car this one has been. It is worth every penny, new or used!


Favorite Features

This car fits me like a glove. What else is there to say? It's a great car!


Suggested Improvements

None.

Review

After only 6 weeks I'm not able to rate reliability, but based on performance, ride, style, and comfort this car is hard to beat for the money. I would say a clean, well-maintained, and low mileage Cadillac Seville STS is a "Best Buy." It has a 300 hp engine, averages 19.5 mpg in city with 25+ on highway, goes 0-60mph in 6.4-7.0 sec, has heated seats, power sunroof, and leather for $4,788! Unbelievable! This is one of the better handling front wheel drive cars I've driven. For 300 hp, the torque steer isn't that bad.


Favorite Features

Sharp looks, American V8, durable/luxury interior, smooth ride/performance, suspension balance, decent handling, acceptable gas mileage, and affordable.


Suggested Improvements

Doors auto-lock when car starts. Obviously, they learned their lesson and have since changed to when the vehicle reaches 10-15mph. It is too easy to lock yourself out.
