2001 Cadillac DeVille from North America
Great car; I blame the dealership and manufacturer :-(
The major thing, is really big. It was leaking oil, it was on my garage floor, it was an ongoing thing. I took it to the dealer I purchased it from; they told me $4,600.00 to repair a blown head gasket, and I was told not to drive it as it could catch on fire. My husband had recently passed, I went home totally depressed. I called Cadillac with no results whatsoever.
I took to other reputable mechanics; it was not the head gasket, it is a fault in the Northstar engine. It did use a lot of oil (about 1 quart per month). The kicker to this is the dealership charged me $50.00 dollars for the diagnosis. I did sell the car with full disclosure of my problem. I had to sell cheaper than if in good condition.
I failed to mention that I called Cadillac many times. I was told by a supervisor that it is old anyway. Wow.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
