I have owned a 2000 Cadillac DeVille DHS for about 5 years. When a favorite relative passed it on to me, it was almost 9 years old and had sat unused in a garage for at least 2 years with just 22,000 miles on it. Professional mechanics told me I would likely have all kinds of very expensive problems with it and offered to take it off my hands and pay me $2000. GM was in trouble at the time but I decided to keep the car and take the risk. With the exception of replacing the battery, tires and overhauling the brakes - they were wrong about every other dire prediction. In 5 years, I've spent about $5000 in repairs and maintenance on the car. It's been worth every dollar.

As a child of the sixties, I always admired the iconic Cadillac brand. Back when I was a kid, a Cadillac was a Cadillac and everything else paled in comparison. As I approached 45 years old, I was looking to buy a car and looked at everything, from BMW to Jaguar to Mercedes Benz, but my wife had been working for a major cosmetic company and had earned 2 pink Cadillacs in 02 & 04. That's where I fell in love with the Deville. It had everything, style, prestige, confort, performance, and reliability. The DTS ticked all the boxes for what I wanted in my own car. So I found my bronzemist DTS and brought her home. 5 years later, I'm still in love with her.

I purchased this beauty on ebay with 100,000 miles and the car was a super clean Sarasota, Fla car. It has all options and is an eye catcher. I first had to replace the tork converter sensor at 128,000 miles $980 and at 168,000 getting an occasional tork sensor code again but the light goes out and mileage is great. Replaced the left front wheel hub at 105,000 miles and the right is near ready to be replaced. The steering wheel programing is in need of fixing because the wheel don't move up on exit but down. The CD player rejects and gives an alarm code. The dash cover rolled up on the edges which is common on those models but was simple to repair with adhesive and replace. Love the car

Best car i ever owned, nothing compares

I bought my caddy in 2003 put about $1200 into it, it now has 128,000 miles replaced belts hoses flushed anti, replace tires changed fuel filter,this was all done in 2008 when it had 90,000 miles, i change the oil every 5000 miles, and the car still gives me about 28 miles to the gallon on the highway,and 19 in the city, yeah i put 3 qts of oil every 2000 miles but thats a good thing that the car uses oil, if a engine didn't burn oil then you had something to worry about. I'm very happy with the car that i now bought a 2005 DHS for myself and the wife uses the 2000 caddy to and from work. The car is just awesome and i would never buy anything but a caddy.

Bought car new in Dec. 2000. Never any problems - only oil changes, batteries, and tires required. All gadgets still work great, but service engine light has come on - transmission torque converter code. Mileage has not dropped, but light still worries me. Since dealer wants over $3K to fix what is now a $5K car, I will probably buy a foreign luxury car (Lexus, Audi, Mercedes). Refuse to buy from any company that took government bailout money. GM and banks should perish for stealing from taxpayers.

bought mine with 71k about a year ago. now has 96k and only have replaced an egr valve. does burn 1 quart between oil changes but from reading here, typical. great gas mileage 25 on highway. great punch when you need it. just replaced brakes all around for 350.00 with ceramic pads and the egr valve was about 200.00. I would buy another one.

First luxury new car I bought. Treated it well, drove easy. Torque converter replaced at 38K mi. Power Steering replaced at 40K mi. Oil - a quart every 2K mi. Water level sensor out at 60K mi. Fuel pump out at 60K mi. MAFE sensor intermittent at 70K mi and Radiator leak started. On Star obsoleted equipment in car and it ran down battery. Replaced battery. Dash cover turning up at corners at 90K mi even though garaged all the time. A/C blowing greasy stuff out of vents at 90K mi. Torque converter out again at 105K mi. All repair prices/parts out of sight because it's a Cadillac. My used cars all were better than this one. To think I paid $40K....

If this is what a 8-9 year old Caddie feels and drives like, I am not sure I could handle a new one. I have driven mostly smaller cars in my life, but I think I will have a Caddie the rest of my life. Even if it is an old one! Have not had long enough to know reliability, but most of what I hear is good. Have put 12000 so far and the gas mileage is wonderful, better than most six cylinders I have had.

This is an awesome vehicle! This is my fourth Cadillac and it carries the tradition perfectly. The mirrors tilting can be controlled by the feature programming as can most functions and are programmable to seat memory. the new design is good: still looks like a big ole Cadillac but is modernized and stylish. Peeforms well for a large vehicle and comfort has always been Cadillac's benchmark. has about 80k miles and runs like a clock standard maintenance only! uses some oil about 1.5 quarts per change but is not bad giving the volume it starts with (almost 7!). I hope to keep this car as long as possible and keep it next to my Fleetwood Brougham until my son can drive it. Cadillacs Always!

For every one that posted a note about oil consumption, a quart or so every 2000 miles or so is somewhat normal. Excessive consumption can also be related to piston rings being stuck due to "babying" the engine. One relatively easy solution is to find a clear stretch of road, place the car in second gear and accelerate quickly up to ~ 70 mph, then coast down to 40 mph (no braking!). Do this 3 -4 times. It will help keep the piston rings floating free and seated against the cylinder walls, reducing oil consumption. Dealers and knowledgeable mechanics can also perform a chemical cleaning.

I love the way this baby drives and rides. I love the get up and go before anyone knows it I am way ahead of the slow revs in the so- called economy 4 and 6 cylinders!! She is very quiet in her coming and going; and I can control everything from the steering wheel!! I don't care about the gas mileage; she is the most comfortable and convenient car for someone like me, with a handicapped knee and right hand. Traveling on long trips in this car is like laying down in your bedroom and watching your favorite television marathon. Needed maintenance is not so cheap, but she is worth her weight in gold!!

I bought my deville two years ago, worked great for the first year and a half but now it uses about 2 quarts of oil between oil changes, had to replace a window motor, and electronic a/c vent in dash and, worst of all the head gaskets are blown and car overheats, also the transmission skips every now and then. Please save your self some trouble and find another car.

I bought this DTS in 2003 with 114,000 miles from a dealer in MI. The exterior and interior were spotless. They still are other than the driver's seat leather due to my daily driving. All I had to do was test drive a DeVille to know what my dream car was. The car drives solid, accelerates smoothly, and always runs strong from acceleration to passing speeds. I love this car, yet it does have serious maintenance issues. When parts fail, shop around for labor, but expect to spend major dollars on parts. Northstar does burn 1qt oil / 2k mi or so, but is very tolerable as this doesn't seem to have major effects.

My wife bought this car new and currently has 99,000+ miles on it. It's had a full brake job, tires, normal stuff. Gets 25 mpg in everyday driving, outstanding! Nice big safe roomy automobile. Minus, you never have to wory about an oil change, it does this itself, just change filter. Dealer said normal for 2-3 quarts every 3000 miles. An aluminum engine you know. GM must fix this problem before we'll consider another Caddy.

This car has a great ride, great performance, and very comfortable seating. I love the steering wheel controls for the radio, gotta have that. This car has two personalities, if you drive conservatively you'll get really good gas mileage, I average about 20.5 miles per gallon this way (city & hwy combined). However, if you want to drive fast, it will do that too, without hesitation. It will go like a scalded dog, but the gas mileage will drop to about 16 mpg. Its highway mileage is superb, about 23 mpg.

I bought this car from an auction and I love it. I have had no problems so far. This is my 3ed Cadillac, I had two Eldorados before this one, but I had many problems with the other two. Its performance is great and so is its handling. You have a lot of confidence behind the wheel. It is also a very nice looking car, the people who I worked with thought it was a Mercedes. I just laughed.

The trade-off between handling and comfort is excellent. For a large heavy car with a relatively powerful V8,the fuel ecomony is very good. I changed the front tie-rods and front engine mount after 60,000 miles. Also, the front seat warmers no longer work and the Northstar engine burns oil. Other than that, this is a great car.

Purchased my 2000 Cadillac DeVille with 2,000 miles on it. I had a Lincoln Town Car. The DeVille handles better and has better acceleration. It gets good gas mileage. the sun visor too low for tall people though. GM's engineers have changed this for 2001. I have not experienced any major problems with this car. The check engine light came on once. It was repaired with no problems at the dealer. The Cadillac DeVeille comes witrh a good warranty. The Northstar engine usees minimal oil every 2,000 - 3,000 miles. Just add a quart and keep driving. the front windshield had an airleak which made noise, but this was repaired by my dealer at 3,000 miles and is now OK. This car's windshield is known to be poorly sealed at factory.

This vehicle performs very well in all driving conditions. The interior design, however, is not as roomy as previous models of the Deville. The car is very reliable, and has many comfort features.

Good value for the money. Have enjoyed 4 years of use. Unfortunately it has had multiple electronic problems over it's lifetime: 2 crankshaft sensors replaced; driver's side heated seat cushion element replaced and still not working right; heater/ac dash control module had to be replaced. If Cadillac wants to play with the big boys (BMW,Mercedes,Lexus, Acura,etc.,) they HAVE to improve quality, otherwise they will always be following the pack. A car of this caliber should not be plagued with poor quality electronics that can have a real negative impact on its reputation. If the imports can do it well, why not Cadillac?

At 15,000 miles,all 4 rotors had to be turned, a NJ dealer's fault.The car uses 1 qt of oil every 1,000 miles. Dealer said this is normal.At 52,000 miles the crankshaft sensors failed.At 57,600 miles a wheel bearing and hub assembly failed.At 62,000 miles a motor mount failed.At 64,000 miles the water pump failed.At 75,000 miles the battery started to leak and had to be replaced. At 80,000 miles the transmission failed and had to be repaired.All this at a cost of over $3,100 for repairs, not including normal maintenance, on a new car just 3 years old. Is this what GM calls quality in a $40,000 car?

I was shocked and disturbed to find that this premier car with the Northstar engine burns a quart of oil every 3000 miles. Also within 50,000 miles the CV drive was totally coroded and had to be replaced. The front engine mount was torn. Not a very impressive vehicle and one that I could not honestly recommend.

It's npt very often that I find a car ( Detroit or other ) that I like more than hate. I have a 2000 DeVille and I/we love it. It has one of the best rides that I have ever come across and the handeling for a large car is very VERY impressive. My mileage is around 20 all around and this is with the air on most of the time. I have had a few minor problems that have been fixed by Cadillac dealers in very good fashion. Would I buy another, you betcha, in a second!

Some problems with the Service Stability System computer after about 9 months. In for service 6 times until the problem was fixed. Also, an orange, watery spot in my garage below the engine compartment. They said a bubble formed in the casting of the engine, creating a tiny crack. Replaced the whole engine. No problems since. (Cadillac did rebate one of my monthly payments.) Great looks always turns heads. A quiet ride, a great sound system, great acceleration and a beautiful car have spoiled me the last couple years. I looked at Mercedes, BMW, Infinity, Lexus and Lincoln. Even with the problems in the beginning, I feel I bought a great vehicle.

My major beef with the car has been the poor performance of the dealer. We would leave the car all day for a recall and would go to pick up the car at 5pm only to find that the parts were not available for the repair. Colonial treats us like a Chevette own rather than a Cadillac owner

Great Sedan

We have had no problems with this vehicle. We had an STS before this, but like the roominess of this one. It feels like it has just as much pick up as the STS, but it doesn't go quite as fast. Comfort is outstanding. We have a lot of company, and this is a perfect car to take people around in.

Luxury and Sporty

I have had my 2000 DHS for 2 years and 24,000 miles. The few problems I had were fixed quickly. The car rides beautifully both in the Bay area traffic jams, through the twisting canyons at 50 mph and on the highways at 70 MPH. The interior comfort is fine, and the ability to sit 6 in a pinch (hope the person in the middle front is a kid!) is a plus. Those that feel that they need to buy a BMW or Mercedes to get a good ride and luxury should look at the Deville. It's a bargain for what you get.

DTS Performs to Expectations

This car corners like it is on railroad tracks considering its size. Creature comforts are superb and it rides like a dream. Averaging 23 mpg during a country road, city street, and freeway commute.

GREAT CAR

I have a slight vibration at 42 which is a shift point. It seems I`m the only one that feels it. I can`t detect it in passengers seat.

The best car that I have ever own!!!

Sorry for the others who think that Cadillac is a car less luxurious than Mercedes, BMW and Audi!!! For me, THIS IS THE BEST CAR on luxury market!!! And for reliability, it's EXCELLENT. When I drive my DTS, everybody look the car at each road corner with a smile!!! Some of them told me that this car is more beautiful than a S500 Mercedes or Jaguar S-type!!! Finaly, sorry for those who think that Cadillac isn't reliable and say a lot of bad things about this mark, you were just unlucky when you bought it!

Love this car!

This car is extremely comfortable. The drive is so smooth. I have had issues but the dealership has eventually figured it out. Shortly after I purchased it used, the dealer replaced the engine. There have also been minor electrical glitches and the catalitic converter had to be replaced. Parts are never at the dealer so if a repair is needed it will definitely be more than one day.

Superb car !!!

This car is eerily quite, an extremely smooth ride, good handling, very comfortable, very quick ( same as DTS) and gets 28 mpg. Does it get any better than this? I have had 4 earlier cads with tail fins, so the new body style is taking some getting used to. The northstar system is world class.

I have never been so disappointed in a vehicle..I let it get repo'd to avoind any further hassles..over 20 trips to the dealership for repeat warranty work and still NO SATISFACTION the navigation system fried the computer 3x before they removed it..night vision never worked correctly, ALL the windows FELL OUT and way too many other things..I still cant believe Cadillac wouldn't do something about it either, after I paid over 55K

The best car ever made!!!

That is the best car in the world and the most technologic. The Night Vision, Stabilitrack, park ride assist are just some examples. I had a Mercedes-Benz S600 in the past and the confort was too poor and the performance was less impressive that the DTS! Wow!!! Three months ago, I asked to a Mercedes-Benz's salesman what was the difference between this Cadillac and the S600 of Mercedes. He told me : You must be agree to pay 50 000 $ in more !!! I think that I will keep a Cadillac for the rest of my life.

This is faster than the slugs BMW makes. With 300 hp this car burns the front tires at 30 miles an hour. Just stomp it and away you gooooo. BMW has better brakes and hugs corners better, but I'm not auto-crossing much anymore...How about you. This car is extremely confortable and surprisingly fast.

Great Car
