That logo. Cadillac cannot miss with it.

It is an extremely cozy car. Horrendously drinks gasoline. 15mpg. Great on highways. Impossible to flip a U-turn. Huge car. Same length as Chevy suburban. You'll get compliments on it because it is a Cadillac. My ladies like it because it is so comfortable but they're intimidating from driving it so they do not drive it because of it not being a Honda Civic or some small car.

Smooth ride. Unbelievable comfort.

The car is extremely x. Comfortable to ride it. This car is great on gas mileage. This car has never had one single maintenance problem since me and my fiancé have owned it. The back seat is extremely comfortable. The paint job on my car is 15 years old and looks brand new still. My sons love the comfort of this whole car. This car rides as smooth as silk.

Cadillac Deville: it drinks gas like a Sherman tank but it is worth it!

I have just recently purchased the car (secondhand) and it has shown a few odd things here and there, but I believe that is just due to age. Overall I am overjoyed with the car, and feel it is the best car I have ever owned! It handles incredibly, and has so many cool features, not to mention a ton of space!

Safety Recalls (3)

Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
03V238
Summary:
On certain Cadillac passenger vehicles, funeral coaches, and limousines equipped with a V8 (4.6L) engine, Oldsmobile Aurora vehicles equipped with a V8 (4.0L ) engine, and Pontiac Bonneville SSEi vehicles equipped with a supercharged V6 (3.8L) engine, the fuel tank pressure sensors are unusually susceptible to malfunctions. If the sensor malfunctions, excessive vacuum can be applied during self-diagnostic testing. Fuel system components can be damaged, and fuel can leak from the vehicle when it is refueled. Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source can result in a fire.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will replace the fuel tank pressure sensor. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during the third quarter of 2003. Owners may contact Cadillac at 1-866-982-2339, Oldsmobile at 1-800-630-6537, or Pontiac at 1-800-620-7668.
Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
02V222
Summary:
Certain passenger cars, minivans, and sport utility vehicles have an air bag inflator on the driver's side that could fracture at a weld during a deployment. Pieces of the inflator could strike and injure vehicle occupants, and the air bag cushion would not inflate fully, reducing the capability of the bag to protect the driver.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will inspect and replace, if necessary, the air bag module assembly on the driver's side. The manufacturer reported that owner notification was expected to begin during September 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Buick at 1-800-521-7300, Cadillac at 1-800-458-8006, Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020, GMC at 1-800-462-8782, Oldsmobile at 1-800-442-6537, or Pontiac at 1-800-762-2737.
Electrical System Jun 23, 2014
Report Receipt Date:
Jun 23, 2014
NHTSA Campaign:
14V355000
Summary:
This defect can affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2005-2009 Buick LaCrosse, 2006-2011 Buick Lucerne, 2000-2005 Cadillac DeVille, 2006-2011 Cadillac DTS, 2006-2014 Chevrolet Impala, and 2006-2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the weight on the key ring and road conditions or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine.
Consequence:
If the key is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy if the vehicle is involved in a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Additionally, a key knocked out of the run position could cause loss of engine power, power steering, and power braking, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.
Remedy:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will install two 13mm key rings and key insert into the vehicle's ignition keys, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact General Motors customer service at 1-800-521-7300 (Buick), 1-800-458-8006 (Cadillac), and 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet). GM's number for this recall is 14299.
