I bought the Deville with about 35K miles, 7 years ago. The car is best on a long trip when comfort and smooth highway handling count the most. My biggest problems have been with faulty sensors -- just about all of them to include: oil pressure, engine temp, airbag, steering, tire pressure etc. The actual components were NOT at fault. In every case it was the sensor. The other problem I had (which seems to be common among owners) is the power window motor failing. The electronic switches and displays are chintzy. Anyway, the motor is great. Uses about 1 quart per 1,600 miles. All that said, it is a fun car to drive on a trip. It depreciated quickly -- so I would shy away from buying a new one in the future. Update on 7/6/2016: Still have the Caddie and enjoy driving it, especially on road trips. Unfortunately, the latest "service engine" light came on and provided some ugly results: "replace torque converter clutch (TCC) solenoid." This is an expensive repair where the a transmission shop has to remove the transmission to replace parts. Uggh. In searching this repair among other Caddie owners, I am not alone. Many, many owners have reported the same thing. The car has just under 100K miles, has been well maintained etc. GM knows about the recurring problems and made little/no changes to address specific and expensive problems in subsequent model years (see my original comments above). No love here for this company -- sorry. I will avoid buying a caddie in the future.

I bought this car with 89000 miles on it. two weeks after it was bought the problems started. One day while driving, the battery light came and the car shut off. I replaced the battery (what the dealership told me was the ONLY problem). after the new battery it ran fine for about a month then it started again. The dealer told me nothing was wrong with it. Every time i turn on the a/c or heat the car will shut off, even when randomly driving it shuts off. The service tire monitor light came on, fixed that only for it to come back on shortly after. Love the car despite these issues but just wish the dealer would have helped more.

To anyone with a vibration issue. You need to keep the stock Michelin Symmetry's on the car. Once I put new tires on and went to Sullivan Tire multiple times we did it. 0 to 100 MPH, no vibration. Bad experience with Caddy dealer who had to be told to replace back seat control module twice. I wrote it in the P & S agreement the AC in the back didn't work. 1) Tire's (2) Dry boots and a broken axle 3) Broken engine front mount 4) Water pump froze and wiped out all the pully system. (5) Air intake sensor problem 6) Fuel pump float sending unit gone 7) 1-20-11 back in the shop for misfire and fuel 8) Replaced pass. window regulator

Overall it's been a fantastic machine. Very easy to drive,comfortable and smooth. Only thing that has broken three times were the window racks that hold the glass panels. Replaced under warranty but still, shouldn't be that fragile or poorly engineered. The gas mileage is unbelievable(18 city/26 hwy) for a car that size. This car will last me a long time and gives me great pleasure in owning and driving.

I have had this car 7 years, purchased new. I have had very few problems, none major. The only annoying problem is that the car has always vibrated at about 70mph. No one has been able to discover why it does this. Other than that, no complains. We have driven this car on several vacations with 700 800 miles per day. No sweat. Gas mileage is very close to EPA rating both in town and on the highway, usually 18-20 city and 24-26 highway (EPA is 18/27). The 4 valve per cylinder engine lacks good low end torque as does every such engine like this that I have driven. But, if you want to go, hang on. Comfortable, classy, reliable. What else could you want?

This car has been extremely reliable and has required minimum maintenance over the years. MPG on the highway is still 25-26 driving the speed limit of 70 mph. Great car that I'm counting on reaching 250,000 miles using Mobil 1 5W30 motor oil and changing it every 3000 miles.

Bought this practically new 25,000miles car from my neighbor and thought that being a $50,000 Cadillac, it would be a wothwhile opportunity. Wrong! In less than 5,000 miles and 8 months since bought, I have had to replace each front window mechanisms twice. The SS cable just lets go of the support bracket although it's new. Too wide turning radius, no U turns allowed without backing up. The A/C works well but it showers the occupants with a black greasy foam which has damaged the carpet, seats and occupant clothing. Impossible to remove cleanly and very costly to repair. Too plastic int. As stated to the dealer, this is supposed to be a $50K car and the features do not justify cost.

Had to replace water pump @40k mi. Failed about 10k mi. later 2nd replacement / Three window regulators..not cheap! Broken motor mounts.. Now @ 87k miles transmission has to be rebuilt which will include torque converter expected costs 2200-3000 dollars .The sad part is I'm still making payments on this car that I loathe. I am a professional school bus driver and am not hard on cars.. my last Cad. is a '94 el Dorado with 200k mi. and I've spent very little in maintenance and repairs and we plan to drive it till there's nothing left but the steering wheel, love that car!

I've always liked caddy's, and this one is no exception. Can't believe how nice it still is and love the 275 hp engine. Everybody talks about how pretty it is. I like the vinyl top a lot also. Its the best car I've ever owned and definitely the most luxurious. I even like it better than my infiniti. In my opinion I bought the car from a car lot ran by crooks, they did not disclose things about the car I should have known before purchasing, and had to have a couple parts replaced. Still have a few more to go but at the end of the day I still really like this car more than any other. The best I test drove. My dream is to own a house and a dts platinum off the show room floor.

I been a Lincoln owner for over twenty years and finally bought a Cadillac. So far the ride and fuel economy and comfort is about the best you can get in a full size luxury car. I am disappointed in the quailty workmanship cheap plastic on dash and cheap looking leather for the seats and rattles never had nothing like that with the Lincolns I owned. Only had it a month now and no problems yet so can't speak on reliability hopefully it will be better then the others I have heard about. Its strickly a highway cruiser you don't hear the rattles. It handles poorly even for a luxury car it should handle better but i spend all my time with it on the highway so I am happy with the car so far.

I have owned Cadi's since I was 17. I bought this DTS w/35,000 and now have 135,000. only issue was a power steering hose and one fuel injector. I will be buying another for sure. The ride is perfect even with 5 people in the car. handling is good for such a large sedan. power is great and I cant say enough about the Bose sound system. This is definently the best Ive owned yet. Had a 03 deville before this one and traded it in w/165,000 and did not have any serious problems w/ it either. Dark blue w/black int and get tons of complements. looks good sitting still and EVERYONE makes a coment about it under the nioght lights. absolutely beautiful car!!!

I love driving this big highway cruiser. It is smooth, particularly on a long trip. Handling is good overall -- but not the best vehicle for tight/congested places. No major mechanical problems to date. Digital instruments look like 1980 vintage and controls are kind of low rent.

Second owner car only had 40K on it. within the first 2 months both rear windows when out. At a year or so the ignition when out ($500 bucks at the dealership) and now at 57K the crank position sensors($320 at pep boys) when out. Don't buy cadillac unless it come with a warranty, you extra cash to throw away and /or you love hanging out at the auto shop.

I love the comfort of my car, however with less than 30,000 miles I have had very expensive repairs that should never have happened. Three of the four window chains have broken and all have needed to be replaced (very expensive.) The air injection pump needed to be replaced. There was a horrific odor coming through my ventilation system, then was told I had bacteria in the lines. This needed to be disinfected. The plexi- glass over the speedometer is all streaked (I have no idea) how that could have happened. My engine motor mounts are loose, and, of course, none of these items were or are under warranty and as far as I can tell, none of these items have been recalled.

The five year old 2003 deville Cadillac I purchased has been a headache and wallet drain ache. It has been many times to dealership for this or that repairs under warranty or I am paying the bill. Then the dealership damages it and won't repair unless I pay. The gm parts are expensive ($7.00 plastic retainer) and you wait for them to order them. The noise caused by the self leveling system is aggravating to hear. The car is so big and bulky that you can not maneuver it easily. The power steering is soft however. Yet that steering had to be repaired also to be soft and noiseless. The quality and workmanship is not worth the money you spend to buy. Next car I purchase will be a new one and not gm.

This is my third Cadillac and by far the best. Gas mileage could be better but hey it's a caddy. The ride is just what you would expect. I have not had a problem with the car in six months of ownership. If you are looking for a good family car, look no further than the 2003 deville. when you push on the gas this baby will get it. I was truly surprised, howbeit at four dollars a gallon I don't get on the gas to often. This is truly a highway car, but it's pretty cool for tooling around town as well. I've learned that the ladies love its style. Buy it!

I bought this Cadillac a few months ago. My fear was that it was a gas guzzler as I've owned Cadillac's since the 80's. Much to my surprise, I got 27 mpg on the highway commuting to and from work. I love the car, it's comfort and options. This car is second to none for affordability, reliability and overall fun driving. It's not Grandpa's Cadillac anymore.

This is the 1st Cadillac I've ever owned, yet I didn't buy this one, I inherited from my father when he became no longer able to drive for health reasons. My wife has health issues as well with her legs and back (as I have back issues as well), this car is the easiest car to get in and out of with no pressure on our backs or legs. We have taken it on several short trips and each trip was enjoyable and comfortable. We are taking an extended vacation in July and August and are looking forward to the trip in comfort and safety.

2003 Deville nice running top of the line car. Looks great too. Thing that are wrong are the cruise control very easy to hit in error. Moon roof leak and filled battery well. Shorted battery out. Does not get the same mpg as my old 99 did. Also you do not know if some left the ac on in the back. But I have a problem with this car now my power steering makes noise after I had to replace the back line. The noise is only when the steering wheel is in dead center. If I move it just a little it stops. The noise is coming from the line at the bottom of the drive side.

What's the rest of the fleet like? Power train good (so far) but stupid stuff - like mechanical mechanism for passenger window replaced at 45000 miles, wheel bearings replaced at 48000 miles, brake sensors corroded and replaced 46000 - all out of warranty, of course. Trunk developed leak at 43000. I buy one owner-off lease vehicles with about 25000 miles on them. Drove Lincoln Continentals for 10 years, bought extended warranties - never once used them - cars each died after 175000 miles. This car would cost a mint to drive 175000 miles. Very disappointing for quality and reliability. Cadillac, you've got a long way to go to be perceived as a quality vehicle.

I drive my DeVille on the open road and in the city. It has the smoothest ride ever. I drive 30,000 miles per year. The DeVille is the most comfortable car that I have ever owned. Its gas mileage is dependent upon the speed you drive. I have driven it 100,000 miles with few problems, none serious. I have never been left sever stranded or towed etc. I had problems with the air conditioner fan and a few interior pieces had to be replaced. Otherwise, this is a very good, A+++ car.

Good car except that at 15000 miles, Cadillac had to rebuild engine/installed new pistons and rings due to high oil consumption. No problems since. Now have 38000 miles. Excellent road car. Not happy with the resale value. Depreciates too fast. If I buy another Cadillac, I'm going to look for a late model with low mileage that has already taken the depreciation hit.

At 15,000 miles, my car was burning a quart of oil every 900 miles. Cadillac refused to install a new engine, but rebuilt the old engine instead installing new pistons and rings. My car now has 35,000 miles and runs okay but the gas mileage dropped considerably from what it was before the overhaul. I will never buy another Cadillac and probably won't buy a GM car again. I'm currently considering some high end Japenese cars.

Bought this car brand new in Aug '03. Thus far I've had a few wierd things happen: DVD Nav Sys would not show "POI"s - Dealer R/R nav unit - fixed, Alarm goes off by itself - Dealer shrugs shoulders - no fix, BRAKE light comes on - Dealer R/R sensor on brake reservior - no fix, SERVICE ENGINE SOON light comes on - reseat fuel cap 3 clicks only - fixed but has happened three times. The past two days the car has stalled on me. I'm going to the dealer tomorrow for that and 9000 mile service.

Purchased a certified DeVille with 30k miles and the car is absolutely like new in every respect with a savings of $20k+. Immediately took a 400 mile trip -smooth, comfortable, and 26MPG. Night and day over a new LeSabre for the same price. Especially like the seat design. This is the standard seat without lumbar control and after a 7 hour trip absolutely no back ache at all. This is truly remarkable.

This is a nice car however being the most expensive American luxury car(DHS) on the road it needs to be improved. There is still too much road noise,vibration and harshness entering the passenger compartment at normal freeway speeds. Too much harshness from road bumps in the passenger compartment. This car is an improvement since the 2000 model but still not enough!

My last 3 vehicles were Lincoln Town Cars and I thought they were the best riding vehicles around until I got my Cadillac DeVille and it beats the Lincolns, hands down. The on-star system is awesome. I will be driving this vehicle for a very long time!

The Cadillac Deville is an excellent car. It features an excellent ride, extremely quiet cabin, exceptionally comfortable seats, very roomy interior, wonderfully strong and smooth V8 engine, many cool features, excellent brakes and commendable handling for such a large vehicle. On the downside, some interior materials are cheap and I've heard it has a poor reliability record (although my car has fine reliability). Also, the frontal crash test result for the driver is only 3 stars. Overall, though, the DeVille is a superb vehicle. I recommend it to most luxury car buyers but some cars (like the BMW 5-series or Mercedes-Benz E class) are even better.

Hi: Only drove the car 3000 miles and the new york streets are trying hard to age the car quickly. I think that you get alot for your mony and would recommend this car to anyone who prefers a large solid feel car (definitly over the town car) but wish the fit and finish were better.

This Cadillac is a great automobile, quiet, fast, and comfortable. On a recent 2000 mile trip to Florida it got 30+ mpg while cruising at speed limit or slightly above. It looks good and impresses everyone. It impresses me.

After a full year of ownership, I now feel qualify to rate this outstanding motorcar. In over 15,000 miles of driving, I have NO requirement for warantee or repair work; normal scheduled maintenance is the only time I see the dealership. The car drives superbly; great acceleration, noisless operation over long highway trips and it's simply the most comfortable vehicle I've ever been inside of. My wife bought a new Lexus ES300 a month before I purchased the Cadillac. Mine is the one we choose for long trips!

I was in need of a different vehicle and have not bought a new car since 1976. I have only bought used, due to the high cost reduction immediately after purchase of a new vehicle. Having had two previous positive Cadillac used purchases in the past, I was only beginning a search for a different vehicle. The quality of the Cadillac, as well as the established and professional dealer, were only enhanced by the 0% interest, and I was able to select the car I did for that reason. I now remember why I had two previous Cadillacs. There really is no comparison in quality and style. I feel lucky I ended my search early.

Cadilac makes people think that thwy are old, but once you dive a Deville you'll forget all about that. One time I was driving on the highway to see familf when we ran over a fullsized ladder. I didn't know we had till the person driving pointed it out. To me it felt like we had just ran over a squirrl or something. The car also has a large amount fo pick up. The car is quiet. In the inside it is very nice. I would definatlly recommend this car.

I'm 6'3" and hate consols, (what unnecessary space grabbers!!) I need front wheel (or 4 wheel) drive. I want room and appreciate lux touches. The DHS has it all with elan. The Northstar is a kick ass engine, the seats "fit" a full size guy both front and back. I think the style classic adn the ride is great.

Nice car to drive, very stable on the road specially in bumpy road as in NY The DTS is exceptionally has good ride on wet road and even on heavy rain, you can also feel the different between this car and any Mercedes when raining or snow my friend has Mercedes E55 more the $75000 car he even could not move in the snow when my Cadilac moved like princes, I am driver with more the one million mile I had Mercedes BMW and all luxury cars I never drove a car with excellent performance in the rain as the DTS, it is very important to fill safe on wheat road, it is not so quite when pushing hard the gas but this car behave on the road as European car and

This is an absolutely fantastic vehicle. I traded in my Corvette for this car and the DeVille performs almost as well. It's also one of the most comfortable vehicles I've ever driven. I recently drove from Rhode Island to Florida non-stop(averaging 27.1 mpg); when arrived in Orlando, I felt like I had been sitting on my couch at home for twenty hours. I have had a few problems however. The heating system needed to be fixed, but this was under warranty. There is also significant nose-dive during heavy braking. All in all, I love my DeVille and would recommend it to anyone seeking a safe, reliable, and well-performing luxury sedan.

When looking for a new luxury vehicle this turned out to be the best one. Mercedes and Lexus are much more expensive at the dealerships and come with far less features. The interior is much more comfortable and the exterior is more attractive as well. Another thing is that it is a GM vehicle.GM is a high quality, and its domestic too. After all the ordeals with Fords every car we now own is GM.

I've had my 2000 DeVille for 2 1/2 years, and it's a fine car when it is not in for repairs. Unfortunately, it spends too much time in the shop, mostly for problems related to initial construction and component failure - not dealer service & support. I've been stranded twice ... ONSTAR doesn't work when you have electrical problems .... but it's fun riding 100 miles in a tow truck with a "good 'ol boy". I'm not sure I can afford this car after the warranty runs out.

There must be some reason why NO Dealer will give a reasonable trade in allowance for a Caddy. They are unreliable, costly to repair and flat out dangerous after the warranty runs out. I've had 4, and will NEVER buy it again. Dealer in Atlanta was deceitful. EVERYTHING went wrong in that piece of junk. NEVER will I buy another Caddy. More gadgets do not make quality.

I really like the vehicle. I have not had it long enough to rate the realibility. It is really quiet, no noise except tire noise on certain concrete roads at highway/interstate speeds.. Actually the vehicle is not the DHS instead the 4 door sedan with the center console.
