1997 Cadillac Seville Sedan SLS 4dr Sedan


Review

I purchased my 97 Cadillac SLS used in '02 with 90k miles on it. It is now 2010 and has 160,000 miles and not 1 major repair has been needed. The only thing that was done was I've changed the shift solenoids in the trans twice at $500 per pop. That was the only problem I have had. I love this car and the reliability that she has given me.


Favorite Features

Great gas mileage 27.1 highway miles Love the style


Suggested Improvements

Larger side mirrors

Considering overall cost and quality of the vehicle, I can't help but feel it more than holds its own in the luxury class of vehicles priced below $50k.


Favorite Features

The ride/handling and the sound system.

Review

Always viewed Cadillac as a great car, but this experience has convinced me I will never buy GM again. The struts failed before 70,000 and they are unbelievably expensive to replace; much more so than other "luxury" cars. The electrical system has caused numerous problems, the gasoline gauge cannot be trusted. Had I realized it was built so poorly, I certainly would have purchased an extended warranty. I can't even trade it in without loosing thousands of dollars.


Favorite Features

The styling is superb, a truly beautiful car. At 80,000, it still accelerates beautifully. The interior is extremely roomy, and the trunk holds everything.


Suggested Improvements

Some attention to quality would certainly be welcome. Basically, it is a piece of junk. Toyota here I come!
