"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."

"bought this car with 65000 and traded it with 85000. spent almost 2000 in repairs and still had unresolved issues when it was traded. This is one of the worst cars I have ever had and I have bought and sold over 25 cars. Brakes repaired but issue not corrected, 3 of 4 window regulators replaced, 2 sensors, fuel filters, brake light on but no reason. Memory seat worked approx. 50% of the time. Vibration in front end, new tires, front end alignment vibration still there. Would fail to start and then it would suddenly start and run fine for months and then bingo wouldn't start. Don't buy this car it is a money pit."

""Purchased"(a REAL son-in-law deal) from son-in-law. Two years old when we got it for wife. She worked for several years then got laid off/retired. Been to Birmingham a few times, Florence, AL a few times and Fair Hope, AL and Orange Beach, Al several times. Eight to ten trips to Lafayette, LA. These are longest trips made. It will get almost 30 MPG at 75 MPH on cruise control on interstate on trips to Alabama. Got extended warranty (5 year/50,000 miles). Used it to get new transmission, and other things that needed replacing, including all four automatic window motors. My wife gets about 14-15 MPG in town. Live in Baton Rouge, LA with many shops, stores, markets, movies, etc. within five to seven miles. If you have not driven a GOOD Cadillac you will not believe how good of a ride it has. Handles great. So many extras inside-it is a dream. Sit back, relax & control everything with your fingertips. Exterior paint in very good shape, always garaged, slight dent in left front just in front of tire. I used to have synthetic oil put in but was advised by learned friend I could use 10W-30. I changed oil and filter myself for past 6-7 years. Leather seats, mats and interior in very good condition. Seats have peen polished regularly.(Wife thing).Washed any time it got dirty. VERY GOOD car."

"My 2004 Cadillac DHS is the most unreliable car I have ever owned. It has all the makings of a great car if you could keep it on the road. Every GM dealer I have taken this car to tells of the same problems with these cars. First, there are head gasket problems with the Northstar engine. This will run you $4,000.00+. Then, there's the transmission and torque converter problems that run another $4,000.00+. These are all serious problems that you can expect from your Cadillac. Oh, and did I mention all the sensors and electrical problems that you just learn to live with. When someone uses the words Cadillac and quality in the same sentence, I have to laugh. My 2004 Cadillac has been garage kept it's whole life and well maintained. I have owned about every make of vehicle in my life, including Fords, Lincolns, Chrysler, Pontiac, Mercurys and have never been disappointed in any of them. I can't say that about my Cadillac. I will never own another one and would discourage anyone from buying one unless you have lots of time to and money to to spend with your local dealership."
