1999 Cadillac Seville STS 4.6 Northstar V8 from UK and Ireland
It's a good job ours is red, it's a 4 door Ferrari!
Steering rack, this needs to be replaced, not a cheap job.
Mystery Over-heating problem.
Brake discs and pads wear quickly.
Strange, random electrical quirks that sort themselves.
Headlights go out of line easily.
Uses oil, but then they all do.
We are looking at a bill of around £4000 to get this car right.
A very, very fast car, for a big heavy sedan, it will eat practically everything out there, but then cruise silently all day at 100mph on the motorway.
It also handles very neatly and grips forever, you would expect less front end traction, but it just grips even from a dead stop with the throttle wide open.
The brakes are very good too when they are in good condition, the ABS, traction control and Stabilitrak all work very well.
The BOSE sound system is awesome, really fantastic sound, with a radio, tape, 6 disc changer and MiniDisc.
Crimson pearl paint is well worth the upgrade cost, it looks gorgeous in the sunlight.
This car will cost a lot of money to run, but if you want to run a car like this, you have got to live with it, service it frequently and treat it right, ours has not had all the care it needs and thus is costing money to fix, but if you take care of it, I can see it lasting decades.
We will definately have another Cadillac.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
