1997 Cadillac Seville STS 4dr Sedan

Review

The car is sharp, has a lot of power, and handles well. One huge problem! The seals start to go bad in the engine, particularly the oil pan. We have owned ours for a year and we are getting rid of it. It started leaking oil @ 80k miles. @ 90K miles the air compressor went up and our oil pan seal is bad. Without a warranty we would endure an expense of $5000 to fix both. We cleaned the engine very well and are certain the dealership was unaware of the oil pan seal. They gave us a low figure and said the car is notorious for worn seals and gaskets and wholesalers are hesitant to touch them. Could have been a line, but awfully coincidental.

Favorite Features

Power and reasonably good gas mileage considering its a V8 with 300 horsepower.

Suggested Improvements

Steering is squishy and loose. Back seat leg room is tight for a larger four door car.
