2003 Cadillac DeVille 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Had to replace water pump @40k mi. Failed about 10k mi. later 2nd replacement / Three window regulators..not cheap! Broken motor mounts.. Now @ 87k miles transmission has to be rebuilt which will include torque converter expected costs 2200-3000 dollars .The sad part is I'm still making payments on this car that I loathe. I am a professional school bus driver and am not hard on cars.. my last Cad. is a '94 el Dorado with 200k mi. and I've spent very little in maintenance and repairs and we plan to drive it till there's nothing left but the steering wheel, love that car!

Best Features

Comfortable ride on road trips, however my Lincoln was more comfortable.Built for larger people, I always feel like I'm slip-sliding around in there.

Worst Features

Turning radius is poor when parking..I can park my school bus with less maneuvering.
