My 2004 DeVille is the best driving car I have ever owned
The right front window regulator broke. Repaired under warranty.
The left rear window had a short. Repaired under warranty.
I wish Cadillac would take better care in the design of their windows, as my last two Devilles had serious window problems, and that was the only problem.
Our 2004 Cadillac DeVille is the best driving car I have ever owned. My wife refers to it as the "butter car" because it has a firm yet smooth ride. It is exactly what I want in a car - A large quick sedan. With the Northstar engine and transmission we get 30 mpg on the highway doing 60 to 65 mph. We get about 27 mpg if I get a little heavy with my foot or kick it too often to pass. The engine is very responsive and the road feel is very good with the original Michelin Symmetry tires.
We do not have any problem with oil consumption. I use Mobil 1. And, if you read the Cadillac blogs, I do not baby the engine. That may help with ring seating and reducing carbon deposits.
Overall this Cadillac offers a much better ride than my '79 Fleetwood or my '92 DeVille. Workmanship seems to be very good. I was surprised to find that the front hood and rear lower quarter panels were plastic, but I guess that was done to keep the weight down.
All around a great car that delivers what it is meant to deliver.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
