Great Luxury Car at a Good Price
By John Baldwin on
2004 Cadillac Seville SLS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
I bought this car for the wife who has a bad back. We took a trip to Branson, MO and got 28 mpg going and 27 mpg coming home. It is very Comfortable and quiet. It had an air leak in the windshield due to an improper replacement, but after replacement the car is very quiet. The Michelin Symetry tires provide a good ride. This was a lease return car, so we had a few minor fixes to do, but for the price, it is the best luxury car we have owned. It has a few scrapes on the lower front bumper as it sits pretty low to the ground. It is fun around town as well on the road. The wheel base is a bit longer than our Buick. Punch it or baby it and it drives great. It is spoiling us and our next car will also be a Caddy.
The Northstar V8 has some guts and is fun to rev up. It peaks at about 4,000 rpm. I love this car's smooth and quiet ride, It is comfortable and its heated seats (front and rear) are very warm and great for our cold Minnesota winter weather. The 6 disc changer Bose sound system is great and it has good radio reception.
Lessen the road noise from the front wheels and side windows. The power seats could have more height adjustment. The heater blower motor is noisy on high speeds. Upgrade OnStar to digital at N/C...we have discontinued service....analog coverage will end next year. Pocket cell phones are better. Add Bluetooth.
