2004 Cadillac Seville SLS 4.6 Northstar from North America
An incredibly bargain in a used luxury car
Air leak in windshield. Repaired by dealer at no charge.
Check Automatic Stability Control message appears occasionally.
The 2004 model was the last of this series, which started in 1998. Although technically it is a Seville, you won't find that name anywhere on the car. It simply says SLS. There was no STS model in 2004, probably because GM brought out an all new rear drive STS in 2005.
It uses no oil between oil changes. It is powerful and comfortable. It is more fun to drive than my wife's 2006 DTS.
These beautiful cars are amazingly cheap on the used car market. I wouldn't pay the $45,000 list price for a new one, but as used car, it is a screaming bargain. Real GM quality, performance and luxury for about the price of a mid-level Hyundai.
I have had 4 Cadillacs with the Northstar engine, and have never had ANY engine problems.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
