  • Pros

    Engineered for world markets. Smooth V8 power. Full load of standard equipment. Contemporary styling. Plenty of electronic doo-dads to wow friends and neighbors.

  • Cons

    Still too much evident cost-cutting in terms of materials to rival Japanese luxury cars. Poor retained value history. Plenty of electronic doo-dads to ring up big future repair bills.

Time to call it quits?

Vehicle: 1998 Cadillac Seville SLS 4dr Sedan

Have owned 6 Cadillacs the last three nothing but trouble think a girl would learn. The last two 99 Eldorado 98 Seville both head gasket problems right after 100,000 miles. Not sure what to do this time fixed the Eldorado but was never right! Gets to be very expensive!! Time I guess to look at something different. Would think Cadillac would do something!!!




Do not buy

Vehicle: 1998 Cadillac Seville SLS 4dr Sedan

This car is great and fun to drive. My sls has the rain sensing wipers and power steering wheel that edmunds says the sts has. but I've had it almost a year now and the problem list continues. never trust the 4.6 northstar unless it's after 05. The thing overheats due to a head gasket problem which is a common problem with the 4.6 liter and even the 4.9 liter DHOC V8. the Bose system is amazing though. the trunk lid light doesn't work (also common). Also the radio doesn't save my stations and the final problem and reason I'm selling it is that the other day i got in it, put my key in, and instantly all the windows went down by themselves (lucky it wasn't raining)

Oh, what could have been...

Vehicle: 1998 Cadillac Seville STS 4dr Sedan

There is no car I've enjoyed driving as much, fabulous engine and automatic gearbox combination, and I loved the look. And then... I started getting a coolant leak alert shortly after buying it. OK, topped up. Then a/c went out. OK, fixed. Then engine started overheating - hose to radiator had hole worn in by belt (?). OK, fixed. Then overheating again, and after a storm, electrics went out. Head gasket blown - would cost $4000+. Water had got in, pooled underneath cabin, damaged electrics. Cost+++. Rear brakes - spotted in inspection - corroded. So an 11-year old top-of-the-line well-maintained luxury car with 87,000 miles on the clock had to be written off as scrap. DO NOT BUY!
