Review of the 2002 Cadillac Seville

  • If you're looking for a top notch luxury sedan that favors comfort over performance, the Seville is one of the smoothest rides this side of Stuttgart.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    World-class engineering, contemporary styling, smooth V8, superbly equipped.

  • Cons

    Doesn't hold it's value as well as other luxury brands, numerous electronic systems could be costly to repair.

  • What's New for 2002

    An advanced navigation system with voice recognition and the Bose 4.0 sound system is new for 2002. Cadillac's restyled wreath and crest ornamentation is also added along with oil change intervals that have been increased from 10,000 to 12,500 miles. Later in the year, Seville gets two new colors, as well as provisions for Digital Satellite radio and a cellular integration package.

Vehicle: 2002 Cadillac Seville STS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I am a long time Cadillac lover and although this is a pretty nice car I am very glad I bought it used instead of a 40 to 50 grand sticker new the 300 horse does not feel like 300 horse well that's at the crank anyway. Reliability is ok but I wouldn't take a long road trip without worrying of maxing out a credit card in repairs on the way parts are expensive not owner friendly maintenance . I should have stuck to the 94 mark vii 170k ran like a champ and not hard to work on and way more power. I have lost faith in gm. I have been turned to Ford. For performance and reliability very disappointed

Vehicle: 2002 Cadillac Seville SLS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I bought this Caddy in March of 2005, it is my sixth Caddy. Two have been bummers but not this one. I have had no trouble with this car. I love to drive it and it handles very well. It has the Northstar engine and i get excellant milage. On a trip around 26 around town about 20. I also own a 1991 Seville that i love to drive. I have nothing but good things to say about this car.




Fantastic & reliable

Vehicle: 2002 Cadillac Seville STS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I have driven my STS for the past 7 years. Thank goodness it's fast since I do a lot of driving to the Delaware shore. Unfortunately, this car got caught in the recent flooding and it is now totaled. Great performance car, and am sorry to see it go.




Front end

Vehicle: 2002 Cadillac Seville SLS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

In recent months the front end of my car has a shimmey. I changed the two front axles and bearing, no better. Bought 4 new tires, no change. The car at 62 MPH has a shimmey its driving me crazy. . I loved the car though!




Cadillac's are amazing !

Vehicle: 2002 Cadillac Seville SLS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

The 02 sls is just as Nice as my 96 etc. Not every car is perfect. Some do have issues. For the most part caddys are amazing cars with a huge history (except for v8-6/4 and ht4100) both huge piles of crap! The s series cars are well built and usually very very reliable cars. Fun to drive and easy to take care of. Vegas and nearly back on a tank with all the performance of a sports car! How do you beat that? (230 miles one way) that was nearly 28 mpg in full size luxury sedan. I have owned 75 caddys in my life and would recommend them to anyone who wanted an upscale reliable car. Amazing ! Thank you Cadillac!

Vehicle: 2002 Cadillac Seville STS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

This car has great looks,smooth decent power,and lots of unnecessary goodies like steering wheel controls,rain sensing wipers,memory seats and radio presets,back up sensors,etc. The handling is pretty good for a 4,000 pound car although you can definitely tell its 4,000 pounds when you push it in corners. Its too bad that you cant completely disengage the stability control which slows you down in the turns. I like driving fast and the Northstar responds as happily as 300 hp can although I do wish they threw in about 30 to 40 more hp and torque. I might get Corsa exhaust but still deciding if I want my Caddy to sound like a Z/28. Awesome used car value. Bought 3/09 for $9,244 53k No snrf,nav

I have used synthetic fuel cleaners without any obvious problems in my 98 Aurora. Chevron makes one. So far I have not used one in the Seville....

I would say the Lincoln is closer to the CTS than the STS. The luxury STS V8 is priced right where the old Seville was priced. However, I think that the old Seville interior was nicer looking. As for ...

Are you certain that it is the tires and not the road? I do know that some FWD GM cars are very difficult to get balanced. I have not experienced this with my 95 Riviera, 98 Aurora or 2002 Seville, so...
