2001 Cadillac Seville STS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Refused to start once in my yard, luckily. Had to have it towed to Caddy dealer. $800 to replace "security modules"! Year later died at Doctor's office. Had it towed to dealer again. $300 for new "special Caddy" battery cause terminal broke. Battery is under back seat that no one uses. How could this happen? Got no answer. Year later had to jump start car, then dash lights went out. Traded it in back to dealer I bought it from!


Best Features

Comfortable, fast, nice looking.


Worst Features

Certainly not the quality I expected from a Cadillac. I got no satisfaction from Cadillac Customer Service.

Review

Good quality and much better mileage than advertised. Only issues I have is Im 6'0" and theres a blind spot where the rear view mirror is that blocks forward vision for me but mnot my wife. I wish I could find a way to lower the seat. Dealer service has been excellent.


Best Features

HVAC-can turn the A/C compressor off manually. Instrumentation. ergonomics other than above mention. Performance and cornering.

Headlight sensor weak.

2001 Cadillac Seville SLS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

For a big ride, this car gets amazing gas mileage (higher than its rated), and its comfort and performance have made it a keeper. We've experienced electrical and sensor issues but luckily found an affordable mechanic as couldn't afford dealership. Has over 123K miles now and starting to use more oil (northstart engines typically use some) so looking to replace. Was also great in minor crash; other vehicle was totaled; didn't even break our car's headlight.


Best Features

appearance, comfort, drive


Worst Features

don't hide sensors. move heated seat controls (next to drink holders) which quit working long ago as someone spilled drink on console.

2001 Cadillac Seville SLS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I enjoy driving this car. Never owned a Caddy before. I have owned a 2000 Lexus GS300 and this a close runner up so far. The car had been garaged indoors for over 3 years. I bought it used with 23,000 miles on it. So far this well maintained car is a pleasure to own. City mpg is only 11.5. I have not had it on the highway yet.


Best Features

power headrests, exit feature that moves seat and wheel for easy exit. Power, automatic, computerized features of plenty.


Worst Features

Cannot think of anything at this time

Review

Bought used with 120k from a guy who didnt really keep up on the maintenance but I got her back to 100% in no time. Replaced the crank sensors (very common) I suggest you replace them before they go @ around 100k miles. Also replaced the cat (common as well) $300 so again not a big deal on a $53k car. The car uses about 2qts of oil every 3k miles which is common on northstars. Again not a big deal, just keep up on your oil changes. Ive owned alot of high end cars (audi,mercedes,jaguar,bmw) and must say this caddy is right up there with them ! I get compliments everywhere I go and its 8 yrs old ! Navigation is also easier to use than most factory units. Stop thinking go buy one !


Best Features

Sporty, classy styling its a real eye catcher and not a very common car like the DTS. Interior is very sharp as well. The gauge cluster is really layed out very well and very sporty looking.


Worst Features

Plastic pieces on the front seats are not made to well. Cup holder is very weak but I understand why they made it the way they did, cockpit looks better without a cheesy cup holder. Nav is great but the radio controls through the nav are a little complicated to use while driving, not a big deal.
