Love the car but Maintainance excessive
By BGB on
2000 Cadillac Seville STS 4dr Sedan
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.
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!
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
