2000 Cadillac Seville STS 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought this car used with 140k miles, I've put about 12k miles in the the last couple of years. I LOVE this car, but it's really expensive to keep up and I'm getting ready to sell it and get a Lexus LS400. The car is sexy, fast and comfortable, but everything goes wrong on it. It leaks coolant, probably has a bad head gasket, it starting idling rough, has the known vibration issue above 60 mph...and other minor issues. You would think that a car that was MSRP $54k would be built a bit better.


Favorite Features

The V8 Northstar...I'm going to miss this engine.


Suggested Improvements

Coolant issue, AC issues, transmission, and the infamous "unknown" vibration at 60mph.

Review

Absolutely amazing car, lucky to have as my first car, it was in bad shape tho. got it for 1000 sold for 2.5. Hard to let her go, the car has so many little features that even today's cars lack.


Favorite Features

v8 4.6 northstar makes driving fun, just set your foot into the peddle and it goes! ive driven mustangs and audis and infinitis, and none sound nearly as good as this northstar, it really pulls.


Suggested Improvements

better reliatbility. mine was in bad condition because of the person before me, but if you keep them in good condition and dont consistantly drive them hard, they are amazing cars.

Review

What a fun and comfortable car. The expense to repair items is a little disheartening. The car avg's 12.5 mpg with city driving but on the hwy that goes up to 20.5 mpg. The ability to seat 3 kids in the back seat is a plus but for adults the leg room is a little tight.


Favorite Features

Having owned a few other luxury cars Caddies have them all bet on comfort, it offers the most bag for the buck.


Suggested Improvements

A engine that doesn't burn oil. My car burns about 1-1.5 quarts between oil changes.

Review

Bought car used in July 2006. 73K kilometers, now 165K. LOVE the drive, the incredible Bose sound system, the handling and the acceleration. I have a bad back and the leather seats are sooo comfortable and great support. Sight lines are fabulous. Runs quite and no outside noise. Little things too. Pop the trunk and it opens right up, don't have to lift it. Open the hood and you don't have to put up a bar to keep it open. Everything is colour coded. Uses REGULAR gas. Great gas mileage on the hwy. Strong car too. Was rear ended and barely felt it. The seat seemed to wrap around me. Bumper had a big dent but the front end of the other car was a mess. Downside is the maintainance.


Favorite Features

The drive, the handling, incredible acceleration, Bose stereo sytem, interior comfort, regular gas, great trunk space and opens easy. Just a great car inside and out. However, very expensive to maintain (see Sugg. improvements). I have to sell it, but if you can afford this car - you'll love it!


Suggested Improvements

Expensive to maintain. Regular oil change every 5K but had to top up every 1K. Electrical system ($1.5K), ignition coil ($1K), alternator ($1K). TWO batteries ($400 each). Exhaust system ($2.5K but covered under prov warrenty). Plus a myriad of other things. Car "shimmies" at 115 - 130 Kilo P H

Review

I bought this car used with 45000 miles on it. Purchased a 100,000 mile extended warranty. This was a great car to own until the mileage hit 100,000. Then it started to cost me a lot of money. The car had constant oil leak problems which apparently are common with the Northstar engine. Some of the interior components are low in quality for what you expect from a Cadillac e.g. cup holders, garage opener knobs, seat adjustment controls. All broke. Other than the reliability issues, this was a great car to own. Powerful and smooth drive. Nav system, rear parking sensors, wiper sensors, leather seating are all great. Some parts are no longer available after 10 years.


Favorite Features

Rear parking sensors, windshield wiper sensors, navigation system, comfortable leather seats, sound system. Large front view. Great car to drive.


Suggested Improvements

Transmission needs to last more than 100,000 miles. Front cup holders, seat adjustment controls, garage opener controls, trunk basket attachements are all cheapo for a Cadillac. Do I really have to pay $1000 for a replacement alternator? Get rid of oil leak issues with better engine design.
