"I purchased this car used with 28000 miles on it. Certified
Every month something goes wrong or breaks. Parking brake problems first, head gasket replaced next but the dealer used old head bolts and could not tighten head to spec's problems down the road, rear shocks started leaking, (3) window regulator's went bad, and now trans is slipping and jerking. These are the major items that went wrong, I owned a 1993 de ville for many years with none of these problems only regular MTCE."
Cons: "Heavy doors will try to close on you when exiting"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9
"I am the second owner of this car. I bought it from my mother in-law, so it's almost a one owner. This Cadillac has a very nice ride, is comfortable and has a big car feel. I've had only a few mechanical problems and would rate the vehicle as highly reliable. As far as MPG, it's actually very good for a V-8. The trip computer shows 21+ in city driving and 28+ on the highway. I'd recommend this car as a solid second car, a car for a teen, or similar. The car is a comfortable 4 passenger car."
"This car has been generally dependable and is nice to drive on long trips. I really loved the air cooled seats. It is a little difficult to get in and out of the driver's side because it is quite low. Highway mileage is shockingly good (>30 MPG). City MPG is far worse (<12)."
"This is the second Deville I have owned. The first I put 224,000 miles on it and never did a thing to it except reline the brakes. Traded for the 2005, excellent car. Roomy, comfortable and believe it or not, excellent gas mileage."
