This is my third Cadillac I have owned,
this new one stalls while driving down
the street. They have replaced the
engine crank sensors. Then they say
when I bring it back the second time
for the same problem they put a
diagnostic package on it and could not
get the problem to duplicate. How can I
search for others for possible solution
or retribution? I am glad Wisconsin has
a "lemon law" and will not be hesitant
to invoke it. Unless they reair it
or replace it now on the third try for
the same problem it will be the last
Cadillac I purchase.
Have a 2001 Cadillac Seville STS that has 96,000 miles.
It has been a great car, burns 1 quart of oil between changes but has been doing this for the last 40,000 miles.
I have driven it accros the country and never had major issues with this car.
A nice riding car that holds its value.
I purchased my 2001 STS in about May of 2004 as it came off of a 3-year lease. It had about 32K miles and now it only has about 88K (as of 10/16). I purchased it at Caddy dealer. A new Caddy comes with a 3-year 50K warranty... However.... a Certified Used Cadillac has/had a 6 year/100K mile one, which makes a used one with the Certified Warranty a bonus for the used car purchaser. Also, they cover not only power train, but practically everything (i.e. basically bumper to bumper), including a free loaner car. Couple of months after purchase it developed an oil leak. No "oil pan" on transverse, i.e. had to remove engine, take apart in middle and put in a new gasket. Glad it was under warranty.
Updated 10/16... As I updated above it now has about 87,000 miles and looks fairly much like new (garaged, plus I keep it polished and clean...) When I tell people it's a 2001 and I've had it since 2004 they can't believe it. Still runs great, geat power, great stopping ability, and great handling for a car of its size. Also, nice interior leather with good fit and finish.
During my first 30,000 miles with my 2001 Cadillac
Seville SLS it has been in the shop way too many times.
The instrument panel computer failed 3 times,
both front seat heaters failed, the
left rear door just would not open, the
engine stopped (no steering - scared my
wife who was driving) ad nauseum. I have
owned six Cadillacs. This is absolutely
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!
