Very poor quality engine for the cost
By Larry on


1997 Cadillac DeVille 4dr Sedan


My car now has 67,000 miles and i now
have the third raditor, second
alternator, and the engine has been
pulled twice for blown head gasket. I
am a Bank official, and love the car
but the northstar engine is not worth
the money. The interior and the
exterior are great and its a
comfortable car to drive, but the
engine gets a rating of 0. Dealership
tells me its the aluminum block engine
that is not strong enough to hold the
head bolts without stripping out.

Best Features

Style, comfort and fun to drive..Has great curb appeal

Worst Features

Please do something with the northstar engine. Aluminum block cannot hold the head without stripping head bolts.Work performed at cadillac dealership, and they called in factory rep who told them to fix it with a heli-coil..3 months later, i had same problem
