Review

GM should be held accountable for producing this vehicle. Look it up in Consumer Reports, worst year to buy this car.

Review

I think that the devilles' are good sized cars that eliminating any cramped feelings that most other cars can have. This is a definite upgrade from chevy division products, and I am sad to see the company changing it's product line up into unfamiliar territory. Being a 2002 deville I have made and paid for some repairs which isn't fun, but eventually any 10+ year old car is going to need some work done to it. I am still a little confused to what Cadillac thinks that they are competing with at the same price points of everyone else. I think that the build quality of cadillacs should be the standard for all GM products instead of them continuously pumping out tin can crap to consumers.


Best Features

I very much like the styling in and out, and the plenty-of-space factor. It's a great cruiser, or when your late for something. Handles well. The northstar is quiet and can move the deville's weight well and doesn't struggle to accelerate from a stop (lincoln town car). Acceleration once in motion is quick and powerful. I have the base deville, and I don't feel outclassed without the refinements of the DHS/ DTS. The non-bose factory stereo is worth leaving in besides adding an aftermarket subwoofer and amp. I like the one touch window pull down feature, the dual sun visors, the quality feel and sound of the doors opening and closing, and the many ways the drivers seat can be positioned.


Worst Features

The driver seat leans left, isn't wide enough to sit in, and does not put you center of the steering wheel/ driver's dash panel. The 2000+ devilles' are nowhere near as smooth in suspension, or handling as the mid to late 90's devilles' that actually feel like Cadillac quality. The armrest hinge breaks off easily. The steering is too stiff to be considered luxurious. The air ride suspension is probably the most hokey thing ever, besides the widespread faulty head gasket problem. What I thought was a needed tire balance turned out to be the transmission's output shaft (that connects to the cv axle) on the driver's side has play causing the car to shake at highway speeds and when braking.
