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


Bought this practically new 25,000miles car from my neighbor and thought that being a $50,000 Cadillac, it would be a wothwhile opportunity. Wrong! In less than 5,000 miles and 8 months since bought, I have had to replace each front window mechanisms twice. The SS cable just lets go of the support bracket although it's new. Too wide turning radius, no U turns allowed without backing up. The A/C works well but it showers the occupants with a black greasy foam which has damaged the carpet, seats and occupant clothing. Impossible to remove cleanly and very costly to repair. Too plastic int. As stated to the dealer, this is supposed to be a $50K car and the features do not justify cost.

Best Features

Size, plenty of A/C when not blowing oily foam. Roomy interior although not the center seat in rear where it is not comfortable. ( It is actually made for 4 people max.)

Worst Features

As much as I hate to say it, these American companies need to provide the consumers with quality products. I have always owned American cars but I have come to realize that they are built with a Mickey Mouse mentality. On one end I have a sophisticated 32 valve engine and then there is no quality.
