"I've owned this since I bought it as a Cadillac certified vehicle six years ago. Comfortable, roomy, fast, enormous trunk.
The Northstar engine has been absolutely trouble-free. Change oil and filters and that's it. Never been in the shop for anything other than routine maintenance. Just starts and runs.
Nothing like it on the current market on the road that combines comfort, power and reliability. (And I've owned a BMW and Audi along the way.)
The only problem is that it was made before MP3's and iPods, so there's really no workaround if you want to utilize Mp3 technology. But every time I think about stepping up, I remember this baby is all mine and don;t want car payments.
My wife owns a Acura RL and she wants to take the Caddy whenever we go on a trip.
This car will pull 27-30 MPG on long trips, believe it or not."

"This is a nice-looking, well-maintained vehicle. It has some
damage to the front bumper, grill and hood that occured in a parking lot mishap. Repair estimate by body shop was $1300.00. We have two vehicles and I don't drive anymore. So, although I dearly love this vehicle, it doesn't make sense for me to keep it. It is a 4-door sedan dark green in color, almost black. Of course, it has all options - power everything, in-dash AM/FM radio, CD and cassette player and a SIRIUS navigational device. The interior is leather, also dark green in color. It also has cruise-control, which is probably standard in this DeVille model. It has around 110,000 miles on it.

"I got this car last year had minor issues like brake pads and naturally oil change. Yet there is a cost to gas, but this car is excellent in comfort, style and reliability. I think that it should hold it's value better. And it could hold the road better in wet weather. Overall I found it to be an great buy and hope to have it a few more years. I've heard the horror stories about the overheating, oil issues and sensor problems but thank God I haven't had to experience any. Feeling pretty good about this car!!!"

"Alot of people complain about Caddy's... poor quality, costly to repair etc, etc... but I have to say this one from the word go has been a dream. Yes it now has the customary 110,000 mile oil leak every GM on the planet has, for those not used to the big V8s.. check the valve covers and your oil pan gasket, chances are its one or both of those, and if you have the time thier easy to fix.
Other then the Oil leak, the car has never broken down one time, and the only trouble I have had with it was due to bad gas, which a tank of high test and a few hundred miles later did'nt even warrent a trip to the mechanic.
As for comfort, and convenience, it has everything you could ask for, cup holders galor, rear ash trays and heated seats everywhere. Both the front seats are also cooled. I must say I would love to buy another one brand new, but sadly GM has stopped making the big boys."

"I've been to three dealers and they all said I needed thousands of dollars worth of repairs at different points in time. To me nothing appeared to be wrong. I actually had a local shop check the left front hub ($600) and the water pump ($600)when I had 80K on the car. They couldn't find anything wrong. That was 45k miles ago and still no problem. Beware of any repairs recommend by the dealers."

"I've had this car for three years. Has 130,000 miles on it and I have had absolutely no problems with it. The Deville with the Northstar V8 has a somewhat bad reputation due to engine problems. In fact, if you do not maintain it properly you will have issues with it particulary overheating and head gaskets. Just make sure you always have the oil checked and keep the radiator full and you'll be OK. Otherwise, the looks and ride are incomparable. This really is a quality vehicle which has an undeserevably bad rap.Getting 32 mpg on hwy and 18 around town. Usually averages 24 mpg on regular gas. Cadillac wants you to put high test in it but not really necessary. Buy it! You'll like it!"

ReviewOriginationID:84b75418170045cd9f3c02d16c1e9f2a
"The Northstar, although not without faults, is in fact a wold class engine.
They have a high oil consumption by design. This is to ensure while you're running your 4000 lb vehicle done the road, that the engine never starves for lubrication.
Extra oil consumption ensure engine longevity.
If the Northstar wasn't so susceptible to head gasket failure it could actually be the perfect engine. Which is why hod rod builders all over the world use them in high end builds.
No they're not great on gas, did someone tell you they were before you bought yours? You have to get power form somewhere.
The 2000 - 1005 Deville DTS is a 4000lb rocket ship. They extremely quiet inside, very smooth to drive and are loaded with features not found in other vehicles of the era.
If you take the time to understand what is is you have you'll be perfectly fine owning one of these bu don't treat it like you fathers Cadillac."

"PROs:
The car is as comfortable as driving a car can be. The seats are plush and the ride is more like a glide. Trunk is huge. Every passenger will be comfortable on a road trip.
CONs:
It is a V8 so it will use quite a bit of gas. It burns a lot of oil. The engine goes bad quickly even with proper maintenance.
Fact:
The experience that you will have these are cars are hit or miss. You may luck out and never have a problem with the engine or you will have the problem that the majority of the owners have and it will be your worst nightmare.
Experience as an owner:
I am on my second engine with this car. It has been a nightmare. The rods that keep going out should have been recalled. This engine burns through a lot of oil. You will have to put in more oil every month between your oil changes. I WILL RECOMMEND TO STAY AWAY!!! THEY DONT HOLD THEIR VALUE AND THE ENGINE WILL GO BAD!!!"

"What a piece of garbage! I've spent nearly the same for repairs as I paid for the car. Every month something new fails, shell out $1,000 or more and it'll run another month, then star all over again. I still owe more than it's worth so I can't get rid of it. De-values very quickly!"
