1996 Cadillac Seville SLS 4dr Sedan
Review
I bought this vehicle brand new and have used it for just short of twelve years. The car rides and performs well, but is expensive to service and maintain. I estimate that to own and operate this car (less gas and tires) over 137 months was $68,500 or roughly $500 per month. All service work was performed by the dealer and the car still performs well with the exception of check transmission and check engine lights which occasionally come on and then go off. From the Edmunds Web site I learned that the fault is a defective "turbine speed input sensor" a $100 part that takes 15 hours of labor to replace at a cost of $3050 or $4000 for a rebuilt transmission.
Favorite Features
Handling, pickup, ride, and overall appearance. To maintain that look would require the driver's seat to be replaced with a new seat from Cadillac at a parts cost of $760 plus installation. Finally a new simulated convertible top at a cost of $900, and all is back to normal.
Suggested Improvements
Build a new car with body lines of the 1996 Seville, but enhance the quality of production and the reliability of the vehicle. Unfortunately Cadillac designs their new cars based on either a "star wars" concepts or as oversized behemoths to epitomize size and power.
