2001 Cadillac DTS from North America
Pile of junk!
OIL GUZZLER; 1-2 quarts a months with the Northstar engine.
Tire air pressure sensors are inaccurate.
Oil coolant and transmission fluid life sensors are bad.
I'm constantly replacing the window regulators.
Service engine soon light stays on - oxygen sensor is faulty I'm told this time.
Front heated seat stopped working.
Neutral safety switch is faulty.
Does anyone know if any of this is covered under a recall as they seem to be common problems?
This is a nice car on the rare occasion it runs. It rides nice, and you can enjoy the ride when you are taking it back and forth to the dealers to get something fixed on a weekly basis.
If you are considering buying a Cadillac, don't! Run as fast as you can from these mechanical piles of junk!
I had two Toyotas, never had a problem. Brakes, battery, tires; I put 170k miles on them before I traded them in. My 1996 Corvette, same thing, while not quite as reliable as the Toyota, no major issues.
I can't wait for the day when I can break even on the Cadillac and trade it in for a Toyota!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

"Pile of junk!"
- Look, it's a used car. All used cars are that way.

Yeah, trade it in for the "MYTHICAL" Toyota quality. You might want to read some of the Toyota reviews before you make that decision. Next time buy a new Cadillac so you know how it's been maintained. With any used car, you run the risk that it has been owned by a moron who didn't believe in proper maintenance. You just been had. Don't feel bad, it happens all the time to people who aren't technically savvy when it comes to cars... one word, CARFAX!!!
