1994 Cadillac DeVille Concours Northstar V8 from North America


A beautiful performance luxury sedan



Electric passenger seat switch.

Lower ball joint.

General Comments:

Lots of passing power.

Great gas mileage.

Up to 30 mpg on highway observed.

Starter was hard to change and was in an odd location. You have to remove the injector/intake manifold off. The starter is located topside between the cylinder heads. This is supposed to make the starter very durable. It costs 85 dollars for gaskets and $250 for the starter. I changed it at 50,000 miles and the amazing part was that it already had a re-manufactured starter in it. There goes the durability benefit of burying it inside the engine.

Lower ball joint started clunking at around 61,000 miles. I haven't seen how much this will cost.

This a very luxurious car with a nimble suspension, well as nimble as you can get when you weigh 4,000 pounds.

Good sound system.

Good climate control.

Plenty of space with very comfortable seats. Driving for 10 hours at a time is no problem.

I drove this off of a used car lot right into a road trip of over 3,000 miles.

Power to spare. Two-lane highways not a problem. 60-95 before you can look down.

I have had my 1994 Cadillac DeVille (base) FOR 2 months NOW AND NOTHING HAS GONE WRONG. I bought the car from a local new Cadillac dealer, so I paid around 10,000 dollars for it. It was worth every penny. The car was a one owner, 25,000 mile trade in from Florida, and it is in perfect condition in and out.

The car was GM certified and came with a warranty, they even had me meet the previous owner of the car, about a 70 year old doctor. It is a very good looking car - silver with a black coach roof with grey leather.

I was driving the car to a local car show and parked it and left the windows open, and another car dealer made an offer of 15,000 for the car and I said sorry, I would not part with my car. My girlfriend said the car was an old person's car and she laughed at me until she drove it, and now she drives it as much as I do.
