This car is one of the best I`ve ever owned,.Just a great ride on the interstate or going to the market, very comfortable. I have had no issuses with it and it looks great.I have turned it into a show car and have won a ton of trophies, from best in class to Veteran`s choice. Just a little work and sense of what the car can be or do is the best you can do.So yes I recimmend this 01 Cadillac higghly.
I purchased my Cadillac DeVille new in 2001 & have enjoyed every one of the 105,000 miles. My mothers wheelchair fits perfectly in my trunk & she enjoys going for rides. She is 96 yrs. old I have told her, I will keep the car as long as she's living, so she can enjoy it along with me. However, seems as though she may out live the car! LOL!!! She was with me when it turned over 100,000 miles. I told her I wanted her to be with me when it did, and she was!!!
I just recently bought a 2001 Deville in the typical "old person" color of tan. I needed a cheap car to get to and from work. It has 160xxx miles on it and cost $2000 So far it has not impressed me but for such a low cost, what can I expect. I was leasing a 2015 Kia Optima and this beater Caddy actually rides better than the brand new car. I was told prior to purchasing it that it will need a torque solenoid thing but the mechanic assured me that it could be replaced a little later on. I too have experienced the horror of the power windows not working. Currently the driver side front is the only one working but again... $2000

My dad just bought me this car it is very pretty i love it best car ive driven. The performance of this car is amazing for a car that weighs almost 5000 pounds it can beat any car off the line and in a race. All of my cadillacs have made it to 200000 miles without any problems. When you buy cadillacs look for the R sticker under the hood if it has that then it weill last you as long as you want. The girls also love it. I raced my friend who had a 2008 infiniti m35x and he was amazed at how fast this car is. It is so comfortable but at the same time fun to drive. no japanese car can match this car. I love cadillacs and will own one for as long as i live you really need to buy and own one.
Performance, looks, comfort, interior, fun to drive and much more
The Caddy looked good. It's supposed to, it's a Caddy. It sat way too low to the ground. I would have to drive very very slowly over speed humps so I wouldn't rip anything off. My mechanic said it would cost over $800 to replace. It somehow loses a quart of oil a month. Catalytic converter.....almost $500 to replace. A "fresh air" unit? ........... needed to pass emissions, over $400. I bought it with $56k miles. It now has 103k. Now the front end shakes when I drive over 40 mph. The fuel gauge NEVER worked. I bought it three years ago with 56k miles on it. It has 103k now.
It looked good.
I used to drive a Buick Park Avenue.
The seats were much more comfortable.
Fix the oil loss problem. Fix the fuel gauge. On the steering wheel make it so you can swith from cd player to radio and on the radio from am to fm1 and fm2.
Right now you can only change the channels on the radio and you have to reach down to the console to change from cd to radio to cassette.
Put more speakers in it.
I blew out the ONE in back.
