2001 Cadillac Seville STS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
Like the age old ad says it's the "penalty of leadership." All of these Sevilles are based on the 1998 design. Compared to all other makes no one was this progressive. Sure the car is a bit heavy, expensive to own, and expensive to repair, but all in all it's a superlative motor car. Overall I've had minimal problems with this car for the amount of technology involved. The seat heaters were replaced under warranty, it had a vibration at 65 mph fixed under warranty, and the valve position sensor had to be replaced. Otherwise this is a start it up and go car. Not to mention it can pass anything else on the road quite effortlessly. Bottom line, if you want to drive GM's top of the line expect some minor problems. Overall it is luxury at its best!
The 425 Watt Bose with DSP and 7 CD capacity, 300HP Northstar V8 engine, and Zebrano wood trim. The rear park assist is incredible, there is not a scratch on my bumper.
Headlamp lenses are prone to oxidation and discoloration. Ride can be a little "crashy" until the CVRSS adjusts. The leather quality could be better more like the 1992-1997 models. OnStar could offer an upgrade to continue service past 1-1-08.
