Too Many Defects
By Becketave on


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


I have owned a '94 and a '97 Concours
(now the DTS), and this '01 is much
better in handling and comfort. BUT,
there have been too many defects. Had
to replace entire engine wiring
harness (took a week), steering rack,
chip controlling the steering feedback
to Stabilitrac system, heated seat
wiring in front (burned out), seat
belt tensioners - plus a few other
build problems. Gas mileage in city
about 14.5 - hgwy about 22, but a real
joy to drive, especially on
treacherous country backroads. Unless
Cadillac (& all GM) get on the backs
of their suppliers to improve quality
control, they will never compete with
the imports- class for class-.

Best Features

Back-up warning system, heated seats, large trunk, spacious seating, handling/power, intuitive windshield wipers.

Worst Features

A CD changer in dash (not glove box), more comfortable CENTER back seat, a BIG improvement in quality. (Cadillac ranks LAST in defects per J.D. Power)
