"Caddy's are smooth, comfortable cruisers. I love the look of the imitation conv. roof and vogue tires on mine. It has been a good car to me. Here's my advice to prospective Deville buyers: Don't buy a new Cadillac; They depreciate rapidly. Au contrere, buying a 4 or 5 yr old low mileage model is the way to go. You can pick them up for about 1/4 of the original price paid for it. Get a comprehensive warranty, if available. When parts do fail, they are expensive. Check, check, check your engine oil every 500 miles. Northstar engines are wonderfully powerful, fuel efficient machines, but do use oil, as was the case with my previous '98 Northstar-equipped Caddy. They have improved the cooling system (hi-temp problems were common for earlier Northstars). I've changed from 30w to 40w oil to reduce comsumption, but it still has to be watched. Allow a Northstar to oil-starve and you might as well kiss the whole car goodbye. Maintain her and she'll be good to you."

"This auto handles like a dream. Corners precisely even at higher speeds. This car is "glued" to the pavement. The NorthStar performance is second to none. This engine has spunk. Gas mileage is averaging 19 city & 25 highway. Cadillac knows how to spoil its driver!!!Thanks GM!!"

"My third DeVille, bought 2005 used (11k miles) Mar. '06 now 61k miles. nothing ever has gone wrong with this car. Handles well in almost all driving conditions, plenty of power, smooth tranny, good comfort , lots of features I like, very good sound system. I would never buy a brand new cadi, because the rate of depreciation is monstrous. I got mine one year old for under $25 grand, expect to put maybe 125,000 miles on it and probably donate it, so will cost me about 20 cents a mile. If you lease a honda civic for three years, you'll pay more per mile than that. I feel safer and better in the cadi. If I can get another 6 or 7 years out of ths car without major issues, I will consider it a good value. I will just have to wait and see.... Gas mileage over 50,000 miles is exactly 21.7 overall. Have gotten 26 on hwy trips and 16 around town. I only drive about 1,200 miles/month, so it's very reasonable fuel cost at eleven cents per mile. I'd buy another one, but I don't need to because this car, so far, is perfect for me. It is my 22nd car, and only the second one I still really like after driving it for over three years. The other one is my wife's 2003 Subaru with 100,000 miles and we still love that Forester"
