2000 Cadillac DeVille DTS 4.6L Northstar from North America
Extremely comfortable, reliable car for the last 16 years
Driver's seat heater replaced under warranty.
TCC solenoid in transmission went bad after about 7 years.
Front motor mount replaced at 97K miles.
Replaced leaking water pump.
All other things have been normal maintenance, like brakes, tires, etc.
This particular Cadillac went together very well. Maintenance costs over the years have been very minimal. Paint and interior, including the leather seats remain in excellent shape. Gas mileage has averaged just under 20 MPG, even though I never fixed the TCC solenoid.
Oil consumption has been in the normal range, meaning it does use a quart every 2500 miles or so. Only Mobil 1 oil and filters have ever been used.
I have test driven new cars like the Audi A8, BMW 7 series and MB S550. Only the MB was as comfortable to sit in, but it cost $130,000 and I didn't think it added enough to my driving enjoyment to replace my DTS. Anyway, it doesn't come in red.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
