1994 Cadillac DeVille V8 from North America


Learn to enjoy driving


The rear window broke.

The alternator below, and a couple of belts broke.

The 12 disc CD changer in the trunk jams about once a month, and must be taken apart.

Fake hard top roof needs special car when washed, because it turns green from the rain and weather.

General Comments:

This car is a great American made gas sucking monster of a car, that feels like you are a lot richer when you drive it then you actually are.

The special features the car has even as a 1996, makes most new cars today look like a rough go kart.

Cadillac is a great American car that can stand toe to toe with BMW, Lexus, or Benz.

1994 Cadillac DeVille Concours 4.8 liter North Star V8 from North America


Reliable with problems


The stereo, cassette, tape, and time went out. All the controls on the front driver seat are out. Bad tail light problems. It idles, squeaks. Driver rear view mirror has liquid inside it. It has an electric problem all through the car. Leather is starting to wear badly. Power stering went out and I got it fixed. I could go on and on.

General Comments:

I have some good things though, it has gave a family of six a car (my family) it is safe, comfortable, reliable, and has a huge trunk. It also has great power.I'm only 45 my previous car was a 1994 Acura Legend I'm use to the sporty stuff. I got the Caddy because my wife totled the Acura. Plus I got it for 13,000 dollars only 5 years old.

Well the Northstar V8 is a 4.6L NOT 4.8. I don't know what you are driving, but in the real world a northstar from cadillac is 4.6 liters.

Could you just make the correction in your comment and leave out the hostility. Thanks.

The Northstar? This is actually a great motor, but not for the homeowner who has no mechanical ability.

This is a very complicated motor in its mechanics, and can cost a fortune if you need to take to a master mechanic. I know because I am one.

A head gasket can run you 1500 to around 2000 to have repaired.

I don't have an issue, because I can repair my own for around 200. But for those wondering if they should purchase a car containing this beast of power; unless you can afford the repair cost or can repair yourself, be it known that you will in time have to deal with serious repairs, so if you dabble in it, be prepared to deal with it.

With that said, this is a fine engine with all the power that a 4.6 can give with the 32 valves. You can get excellent mpg on the hwy, but not in town.

Master mechanic specializing in Cadillac's signing off.

Good luck.

1994 Cadillac DeVille Concours 32 Valve Northstar V8 from North America


The most comfortable, fastest, and over all best handling of any car I have ever driven!



General Comments:

This car has so much power, you might think it was a jet-powered car.

The car handles like a dream, and the comfort is unbelievable. Space in the care is amazing. There is room for six with room to spare. The car has had no problem yet.

I agree I bought my 1994 Cadillac Concours Deville in 1999 in Raleigh, NC and then moved to Chattanooga, TN .I have put over 250,685 miles on it, most cars don't hang on that long.

Just bought a 1995 concours It has over 300000kms. It still runs strong and is lots of fun!!! I have a 2007 chev2500 diesel quad cab and still can't decide which I want to drive. My wife thinks I'm crazy!

I agree that Cadillac is a very good car. I'm 18 years old, and I have a 1993 Cadillac Seville, and it's very dependable. 240 000km and it runs like a new one. Only replaced a air compressor for ride control. It's a nice ride and the ladies love it.
