1989 Cadillac DeVille Sedan deVille 4.5L V8 from North America

Summary:

A great luxury V8 that doesn't hog gas

Faults:

I replaced the starter.

I replaced the serpentine belt (expensive compared to my last Cadillac).

I replaced the water pump.

I had new brakes put on that cost $450+.

General Comments:

I have had 3 Cadillacs in 4 years, and this one is the best. It has 128,000 miles and still looks new on the inside and outside.

The Sedan deVille has great pickup and holds steady on the interstate.

I began college in August and drive over 200 miles a week, and the car has not given me any major problems.

Driving is a pleasure in my 1989 Cadillac Sedan deVille.

1989 Cadillac DeVille Sedan 4.5 from North America

Summary:

Wish I could get another with low miles and start over again!

Faults:

I've replace the alternator twice ($60 each time) and the water pump three times ($30 each time + skinned knuckles (3 different bolt sizes in impossible places to reach!). The front disk brake rotors kept warping until I bought the $70 factory brake pads. Also one of the CV boots finally dried out - replaced for $120.

General Comments:

Love it - commute 120 miles/day on the interstate. Wish it had airbags in 1989.
