STS dangers.
By MarkAaron on


1997 Cadillac Seville STS 4dr Sedan


The car is sharp, has a lot of power,
and handles well. One huge problem!
The seals start to go bad in the
engine, particularly the oil pan. We
have owned ours for a year and we are
getting rid of it. It started leaking
oil @ 80k miles. @ 90K miles the air
compressor went up and our oil pan seal
is bad. Without a warranty we would
endure an expense of $5000 to fix
both. We cleaned the engine very well
and are certain the dealership was
unaware of the oil pan seal. They gave
us a low figure and said the car is
notorious for worn seals and gaskets
and wholesalers are hesitant to touch
them. Could have been a line, but
awfully coincidental.

Best Features

Power and reasonably good gas mileage considering its a V8 with 300 horsepower.

Worst Features

Steering is squishy and loose. Back seat leg room is tight for a larger four door car.
