Pretty good, but why any problems?
By Storm22 on


1997 Cadillac DeVille 4dr Sedan


This Deville makes one quart of oil
disappear every 1400-1800 miles
...considered within normal tolerance
by Cadillac ...have seen this over and
over again on internet sites. A truly
free economy would produce an immediate
corrective response by the manufacturer
to their hoped-for future customers.
However, car is very comfortable and
still gets a reasonable 17-27 mpg for a
4,000 lb. car.

Best Features

Is very flexible vehicle due to shear dimensions and size inside; responsive Northstar engine; instantaneous gas mileage (personal fascination?); very nice standard sound sytem.

Worst Features

Cadillac needs real value for the dollar. At present, one should never, never buy a Cadillac brand new. They are nice in many ways, but not worth anywhere near the original MSRP. The used market closes the gap in a couple of years.
