I think that the devilles' are good sized cars that eliminating any cramped feelings that most other cars can have. This is a definite upgrade from chevy division products, and I am sad to see the company changing it's product line up into unfamiliar territory. Being a 2002 deville I have made and paid for some repairs which isn't fun, but eventually any 10+ year old car is going to need some work done to it. I am still a little confused to what Cadillac thinks that they are competing with at the same price points of everyone else. I think that the build quality of cadillacs should be the standard for all GM products instead of them continuously pumping out tin can crap to consumers.

We bought our '02 Deville for my wife to replace her Chrysler 300M. It was bought used with 24K miles and we now have 94K on it. We have had all four bearings/hubs replaced, rear shocks, pass. window switch, one tie rod end and the pwr. strg. hose has a slight leak. Otherwise, it has been an excellent drive, smooth but have had the slight front end vibration above 60 MPH as commented by others. Four new Yokohama tires virtually eliminated it. Some of the dash switch lights have gone out but due to the permanent bulb design in the circuit boards, the bulbs simply cannot be replaced without a soldering iron. Engine/transmission are flawless. It uses a qt. of oil every 2000 miles.

This is a great riding car and a looker, too. BUT: last year at 73000 miles I had to get oil pan gaskets replaced - $1300. Last month at 83,000 miles, the northstar has a leaky head gasket. That'll be another $1400 plus. Sad that such an expensive car develops problems so soon. I've driven Buick lesabres passed 160,000 miles with no such problems. This is my LAST Caddy.

It is quite a machine, motor wise. The motor drinks oil but other than that it has never left me stranded. I have one that also shakes at over 60, and when you brake it shakes. I have driven it across the U.S a few time, once non-stop except gas for 34 hours. I drive it in Europe right now. It is slow next to the cars over here, but it's rare over here. I've saw one. The one place the dash going from English to metric actually helps.

I first purchased a 2001 Deville and turned it in under the Lemon Law within 6 months (26 times in the shop). We purchased a 2002 replacement. This car was good for about 35,000 miles. Then it started using oil, had to replace 2 seat heaters, water pump, and two starters. Since then it has been one senor after another, cruise control module, two more starters, flywheel, ball joint, etc, etc. I will drive this until it stops to get my investment back, however I could never be compelled to purchase another Cadillac in this lifetime! Not worth the cost outlay or the frustration level. I have also learned Cadillac, as a company, is not concerned about its customers - horrendous experience!

I was a Buick man till I got the great deal on this used 2002 dts. Under $10K. Gripes: 1-power steering pump quit 3 months after purchase. 2- heating element in top 1/2 of driver's seat doesn't get warm enough. Other than that, I love it. ride is better than my old park avenue and lesabers. I accept the lower mileage as a trade-off for the comfort and great ride. Some portions on the instrument panel and nav system are hard to see if the sun is behind you though.

We got the car in April 2008 with 60k miles. My wife has a 70 miles commute every day, so we are putting a lot of milage on the vehicel. Plush ride, very comfortable. However, every 4 months or so there had been issues - mostly with the electronic. Every visit in the shop is at least $700. No wonder that you can by those used ones so dirt cheap - you need to invest $3,000 or more every year just to keep them running! Gas milage is about 19 MPG on premium gas (the poster who reported 30+ miles is clearly smoking something!) with a mix of city & highway.

I purchased my DHS in May of 08 with 58K miles on it. The only issue I have had is to replace the a/c actuator and I knew that going in. My car list new for 50,000 and I bought it for $7500. If you shop around you can make some great buys. Most of my friends say "why the bigh car". Answer: Comfort, safty, and great fuel mileage. Just did a Round Trip to KC and back today, 317 miles. Got 26.3 at 70-75 mph.

this is my third cadillac and from my expierence, its all a roll of the dice! some are built to last with minimal repairs, and others will make you pull your hair out! routine maintenance plays a critical role of the life of your caddy, used caddys should be bought will eligible extended warranty, if buying used check gm inquiry report and that should tell you alot about your caddys reliablity. the car overall is great, i guess for me the third times a charm, ive paid my dues to cadillac, do your research, inspect your caddy daily, and keep up with routine maintenance.

This has been one of the worst car experiences I have ever had. I love the way the car looks, but I cannot stand it when the accelerator begins to shake when I drive over 60 mph. It also shakes when I apply the brakes even though I have changed the brakes, rotors, tie rod ends, and numerous other things. Not to mention I have to take it to the dealership at least 3 or 4 times a year! It sucks! My next car will not be a Cadi. Too much work.

I have had this car for three years now. It has 75,000+ miles. The day after driving it home from the lot, the battery went dead. I was given a free replacement right in our driveway. That battery leaked and was recently replaced and they found a hole burned through the bottom of the car. They also replaced the passenger window motor because the rear window dropped. The motor is making noises now. Also, the seats get stained easily. The dash instruments are hard to see due to the glare. The good things are the comfortable seats, smooth ride, quiet engine, and how there is plenty of room and trunk space. This is not a performance car my any means.

This car is the nicest ride around for the money. The power of the Northstar engine may surprise some people and the interior is as plush as it gets. It handles well for a car of its size. The monochrome paint job gives the car a sleek, sophisticated look. You can't go wrong with black on black.

This has been the best car I have owned. It is my fourth Cadillac. My out of warranty expenses have been four new tires at 45,000 miles and an extensive check up at 60,000. My car currently has 63,000 miles on it. It has superior finish. The back up radar is very useful. I am trying to decide on how long to keep it. My friend has one with 125,000 miles on it and is happy.

This is my fifth Cadillac and will probably be my last. It was supposed to be a Certified Pre Owned vehicle but within a week, it was in the shop for three weeks. They had to replace the dash and auto headlights (they are still broken). The traction control can not be turned off (they say it's a computer prob, but can't fix it), there is a pronounced vibration at over 60 mph (the shop says its a characteristic of the car and they can't fix it), and a host of other small problems. I bought the car because it was certified and am sorely disappointed. I always liked Cadillacs but their customer service, at least at my dealership, is horrible. They just don't seem to care one whit. They've sold the car now so to heck with the purchaser. Sad, ain't it.

I am probably the youngest DeVille owner and a 5'2" female, but I love my Cadillac DeVille! I have it really decorated nicely. I added more chrome to it. It is a really sharp car. Strangers ride up on me all the time and say "nice ride". I have friends that have Mercedes and BMWs and I leave them all cowering in the corner when I pull up in my platinum Caddy. They say my car is better than theirs. And I say, "I know"!

The STD or standard model has 275 hp and flies! The DTS -Deville Touring Sedan and the DHS - Deville High Luxury Sedan have 300 hp, and the only difference I can see is the standard has the hood ornament on the hood, while the DTS & DHS models put it on the grill for a sportier look.

I bought my 2002 DeVille STD Sedan on E-Bay used. What a deal! The car is extremely smooth. I'm always finding an excuse to dive the Cadillac over my other cars. It's just a fun ride! No problems thus far. Luxury at a fraction of the cost. There are advantages to American cars that don't hold their value despite being built just as well as those German and Japanese cars...They are much cheaper used!

It has wonderful features like heated seats in the front and back, air vents in the back, a pop hatch in the back arm rest for easy access to the trunk contents, wood grain dash, and smart system that tells you gas mileage, rmp, % of fuel, oil, and windshield wiper fluid life left. And many many other features.

I have owed BMW, Mercedes-Benz, etc. over the last twenty years. I finally got tired of the expenses and went for a used 2002 Cadillac DeVille. I could not be more pleased. Although, the BMW and Mercedes are more fun to drive and do have some wonderful features, the cost of parts and repairs and over all expenses finally drove me away. This car is wonderful to drive on long trips, has good gas mileage and is very comfortable to drive. So far, the dealer has been great making minor repairs without a hassle. For the money, used that is, pretty hard to beat over the German autos. Cadillac resale values are poor but so what, at least you won't brake the bank with this car. I recommed this old American standard.

A very reliable, comfortable, powerful car that is a good value compared to other luxury cars. It is hard to imagine a better car for a medium or long trip. Lots of comfort features for driver and passengers that make a difference. The combination of Stabilitrack and the Northstar engine make for very good handling and performance. One silly but serious annoyance: Terrible cup holders!!

I used to have a Saab Convertible, back in the day, and no car was more fun to drive than that one. But my Caddy is probably the most comfortable, and safe feeling, car I have ever driven. If I keep my speed under 70, my highway mileage is 28-30 mpg, and I can't complain about that.

This is a very nice car to drive. Reasonably quiet and good gas mileage. My only negative is that the brakes were lousy. I had to have all 4 rotors replaces by 25000 miles. After that, and a new set of tires, the car ran much smoother and stopped like it should. The local dealer treats me well and takes care of minor warranty issues with no hassle. A good buy.

I have 48000 miles on my DTS in 2 years. Have had no problems, except for a broken lumbar switch on passenger seat. We have taken several long trips in the car, and it is ery comfortable and really performs. Absolutely love the Onstar system. It has been very helpful several times.

good stuff

I just bought a 2003 deville. Boy was I impressed with that car. I hear a lot of talk of the imports, but this car has it all, and in my opinion can't be beat. The Americans are kicking ass and taking names

This one was from fleet, I got it after 29,000 miles driven fro about $25k. Well, very fun to drive and no complain about the performance and comfortablness, plus a good image. Problems started with loose glass part on left-front side, service engine signal turns on for no particular reason, and a recall so for firing re-programming. Though still under warranty, but, would be long. I have to drive as less as possible to control the milage under 40,000. The Cady Could be better than what I have gotten.

Will it ever stop breaking ???

I have owned my DTS for 7-1/2 months now and although its alot of fun to drive and very comfortable the reliability has been horrible. It has been back to the dealer for 9 different warranty issues and 1 recall so far. Everything from suspension problems to moon roof leaking. The dealer is taking care of the problems as they arise but things are breaking faster than they can fix them. GM needs to go back to the drawing board on this one. There's more to it than glitz and glitter.

I love it

After having the worst experience of my life with Classic Cadillac which was only exceeded by Bill Green a manager at Cadillac Customer No Service who told me "I report to no one". To me the new DTS lacks some features that have been lost since my 92 Deville was built such as good quality working visors, seats that cradle the body and a more comfortable road ride. I also miss the exterior light monitors and the automatic pull down trunk. The $2K Onstar system which I did not order is a joke. The 92 feels considerably more responsive and powerful than the DTS. The DTS also seems to have less rear leg room and trunk space than my 92.

I have been a GM family member for 30 years and finally decided to buy what I thought was its best product--caddy deville. I like the power of the 32v Northstar, like the comfort of the interior(heated seats and all), the exterior is still growing on me--too much plastic/fiberglass/average paint. The sound system is okay--hides the engine noise when the A/C is on or during acceleration. Instruments are not impressive, but located in good places. Should have opted for the DTS. Column shift still growing on me too. Still should have gotten the DTS.

The goofy sun visor was designed by Rube Goldberg. The emergency brake pedal coundn't be in a more wrong location. The seats are narrow - and I'm not fat. Assuming that the seat control are operating properly, they are absolutely nonsensical: returning the seat to the operating position from the exit position as soon as the door is locked. The air conditioning is noisy to the point of interferring with normal conversation. The cooling system was delivered to me with inadequate coolant. Now, after 3000 miles, the "coolant level low" light came on. (I added coolant immediately). It's got a leak somewhere. This car is poorly thought through.

So what if it's a Cadillac-I still like.

Other than the image problem as voiced by my teen-agers that I have purchased an "old persons" car, I think it was a great choice. I was looking for a larger, more comfortable alternative to the various SUV options and I think I have found a winner. Some well paid marketing wiz at GM actually fulfilled his(her) goal at sucking in the younger (just a little) generation before their usual buyer group died out-at least as represented by my case. I have no problem with the build quality so far and the interior design looks and feels great to me.

I brought this car for the sole purposes of road trips. I must say this car fits that role perfectly. The inside is good enough for comfortability. The handling is good enough to handle the tightest curves. Gas Mileage could be better, but on the highway, good enough. When I brought this car, I wasn't looking for the god of all cars, but what I was looking for was a good comfortable ride. That is what I ended up with when I brought my Cadi. Treat the car good and it will treat you good. Should've got a Lexus. If you would have, you would have the same complaints.

Probably too much of a vehicle for most "lite" Americans these days. All 300 horse hit the ground on request. Car hangs flat when flinging around turns to a surprising degree. Beautiful leather seats, nice wood trim. No mechanical problems even with the lead-foot thrashing it endures daily. I live in the Plains and don't spend a lot of time sucking exhaust in traffic jams.

After 15,000 miles, our new DTS began smoking like a chimney and using 4 quarts of oil in 3,000 miles. Our dealer tells us this is normal for a Cadillac. I think we made a $50,000 mistake.

This car has been nothing but trouble since the day it was bought. The first thing that went wrong was the brakes and the traction control. Next was the Night Vision. Next the seals around the windows went bad. So as you can see this car has been nothing but a headache. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

not the same quality as older cadddys

We bought "Vouge tyres" a $900 big mistake,The car has had these tires rotated, balanced, replaced, even had the steering gear box replaced and still I have problems with vibration in the car. had the brakes rotors turned because of the bad scoring on them, in a car with 300 mi. on it (had it to the dealer 2x's before it was corrected) loud valves (again dealer says normal 2x's). programing driver feature is never reliable. I even had a customer service rep. call us and still everyone says it's normal? This is are third caddy and most likely our last. Did I hear somebody say Lexus?

sorry owner

New with 2500 miles, whining whistling sound in passenger compartment, Service changing differential & other parts unable to determine origin. May be in transmission. Doesn,t say much for Cadillac quality.

Had a BMW 7 series and a 300SD Mercedes before that. Looking for a large, good handling sedan with styling. The DTS is it. Midnight blue with dark gray interior and wood trim package- gorgeous. Powerful, quiet with plenty of room for 4 and their luggage. This is the car for road trips and the interstate. Useful luxury features and did I say good handling. It's not a BMW but hey its 25Gs less and its better looking.

Bought brand new 2001 DHS. Very unhappy with quality of product. Many problems with paint and wind noise is terrible at all four windows. Dealer had car more than I did the first few weeks. Would not recommend this car. We regret not buying a Lexus.

ACCELERATION IS VERY SMOOTH & ONLY HINTS AT ITS 275 HP. TRANSMISSION SHIFTING IS INVISIBLE. EXCELLENT BRAKING & PRECISE STEERING BUILD CONFIDENCE. IT TOOK ABOUT 20 MINUTES TO FEEL A PART OF THIS CAR. QUIET, COMFORTABLE INTERIOR. GREAT AUDIO SYSTEM. IT HAS AN INFORMATION DISPLAY THAT PROVIDES EVERYTHING YOU WOULD NEED TO KNOW. IN BRIEF, IT DOESN'T LACK MUCH AT ALL.

Bought a brand new 2002 Cadillac DTS in October of last year, and the car is finally running properly. Apparently, the factory installed catalytic converter wasnt processing the exhaust properly. Also, the "traction control" light would not turn off. One last problem -- the overhead reading lights would not shut off, ever. All of these problems occurred after the car was driven off the lot. Even with all these problems, this car is an absoulte pleasure to drive.
