2002 Cadillac Seville SLS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
My 2002 Seville is my fourth Cadillac. My preference in style has always been the Eldorado though. I had many problems with my 1995 Cadillac ETC, and was looking at a head gasket. With $6,000 in repairs in two years, I was done. My 2002 Certified Pre-Owned Seville SLS is a nice change of pace. It handles the crappy local streets and pot holes much better than my ETC did. For a heavier car, it drives like a much smaller car; i.e. the 1997 Nissan Maxima SE that I used to own. It have been experiencing some light shaking in the steering in wheel at 65+ MPH. The dealer "replaced tie rod", but I still notice the shake. It's not bad, but I am not convinced this is "the way it sohuld ride." I paid nearly $22,000 for this car with less than 35,000 miles. It was in near new condition and certified. I miss having a sunroof.
Lots of gadgets. The memory seats are a plus. It handles like a much smaller car. It has a neat tach display options. Onstar. Wheel stereo and climate controls.
The standard AM/FM/CD system in Seville SLS cannot compare to the Bose upgrade of my old ETC. I have been experiencing wheel vibration at higher speeds. The exterior is somewhat plain.
