Vehicle2000 Cadillac DeVille DHS 4dr Sedan
ReviewI have owned a 2000 Cadillac DeVille DHS for about 5 years.
When a favorite relative passed it on to me, it was almost 9 years old and had sat unused in a garage for at least 2 years with just 22,000 miles on it.
Professional mechanics told me I would likely have all kinds of very expensive problems with it and offered to take it off my hands and pay me $2000.
GM was in trouble at the time but I decided to keep the car and take the risk.
With the exception of replacing the battery, tires and overhauling the brakes - they were wrong about every other dire prediction.
In 5 years, I've spent about $5000 in repairs and maintenance on the car.
It's been worth every dollar.
UPDATE as of Nov 2014: After owning the 2000 DHS for a total of 6 years, I traded it in on a 2006 Cadillac DTS. Although the styling on the 2006 is a bit more chiseled and refined, the 2000 definitely rode better and quieter - wish I had kept it.
