2001 Cadillac DeVille 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

The Cadillac Deville is fast becoming one of the last boat Caddy cars ever being made. The new ones have all the bells and whistles but they no longer have that long slick boat length look to them like the old Cadillacs have and that's a shame. I love this car and I just purchased it with over 114,000 miles on the odmeter!

2001 Cadillac DeVille 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This car looks great however driving it I notice poor rear visibility for backing and parking. The powerful engine is a bit too much for a FWD car, full throttle at 30 mph is a bit risky since the car darts in one direction or the other depending on the road. Replaced both hubs, no help. The fuel consumption is high in city driving acceptable on the open road though. This engine is an oil hog about a qt. every 1000 miles which GM says is normal for the Northstar, explains the 7.5 qt. crankcase. Transmission oil life sensor does not work. Plastic in and out is poor quality, dash pad warping, fender liners crack just from stones on the road. Had a rented 2007 for a month was no better.


Best Features

The large trunk is excellent to carry that case of oil around the you will be needing. Full throttling the engine at low speed in 2nd gear to slow the oil usage and wasting the $3 gal gas. Smooth ride and quietness, comfort could be better.


Worst Features

A better engine than the Northstar could be developed. Backing sensors should be standard on all DeVilles. Put the battery under the hood where it belongs. Trunk closing lock down assist, hate slamming the trunk lid. Revive the Olds Regency of 93 and call it a Caddy, better handling, ride overall.

Review

This is my 3rd new Cadillac and although I love it, it is not a quality car. It will use a quart of oil every 1500 miles. I have replaced steering rack, steering shaft, left and right hub, water pump, motor mount, water pump cover, lower crank case sensor, all 4 rotors.


Best Features

Comfort and ride


Worst Features

Better quality parts

2001 Cadillac DeVille DTS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

The DeVille is a great looking car. It has abundant features. I wish it had cooled seats like '04 and newer models though. It also has a nice clean interior setup, everything is easily within driver's reach.


Best Features

The Bose stereo sounds great. It has the best looking gauges that I have seen in any car.


Worst Features

After 40,000 miles and the water pump went. this is the the same problem as when the Northstars first came out in 1996. You would figure by now, they would work that out. The radio / temp settings bezel should be better anchored and not plastic. It makes the center of dash appear cheap.

Review

I have had this car for a little over a month. I have put 4,000 miles on it. The ride is excellent. The nav system needs a way to update. The night vision is ok but not really needed. Back up sensors are a really nice touch. The rain sensors are a nice added touch. One problem already is the seloniod in the transmission has gone bad and it will cost about $2,000 to fix. This is my third Cadillac and I have enjoyed everyone of them.


Best Features

The memory seats, ride, back up sensors, and Bose stereo.


Worst Features

Give it an updatable Nav system and make the cat easier to work on.
