2000 Cadillac Seville SLS from North America
Too many problems, and no answers
When I drive, sometimes the car will just cut off.
I still don't know where my battery is located. Plus I have an oil leak. Since I bought the car, I have had to put a quart of oil in every other week.
I changed my brakes and the dashboard still says that I need to change my brakes.
My stability system light stays on.
I hear a knocking under my car every time I turn a corner.
It just has too many problems. Once one thing goes wrong with a Cadillac, everything else starts to go wrong too.
Oh, one more thing: when I get out of the car, it smells like the car has overheated, but the temperature gauge reads that the temperature is normal.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

The battery is located under the rear seat.

Well that's the other thing about an old Cadillac --- it costs a fortune to fix things because the dealers soak you even though it is an old car. It's a 9-year-old car. Maybe you can drive it until the next big repair, and then dump it and cut your losses before you dump a fortune into it.

I have the same problem. I have to keep putting oil in the car and never see a leak or oil spots on the ground, so I don't know where it goes. The system stability light always comes on. I did read somewhere that that is a recall, so I would see if you can get that fixed for free.
When I first got the car it would shut off on me and the wheel locks. It is scary when it does that in the middle of a 4 way intersection. I paid a lot to fix a sensor and it seemed to stop. It cut off on me again and almost got me killed two days ago and now I am afraid to drive it.
I have put so much money into this car that I can't afford it anymore. I am very upset with the dealership that sold it to me. This car may be the death of me, literally.
I did get new brakes and the message still pops up for needing new brakes and every time I go to get something fixed something else breaks. It is a never ending money pit.
