Pros

I previously had the 1993 Coupe DeVille since factory ordered 1992.  I put  241,000 mikes on the engine without a transmission or engine job.  When it died I knew I needed the same motor.  Then came my used 1994 Cadillac Deville, newer body, same cast iron motor.  In 6 years I do not know what repair job means.  The lowest maintaince vehicle I have own in 61 years.  Unbelievable!  Every gadget works perfect!  Breaks last for ever too!  Runs so quiet, so smooth, so sturdy, so fast, so reliable.  No electronic problems.  A few busted hoses for the cheapest repairs ever experienced.  Car motor runs like a dream and it speaks to me!  Tells me when to add motor oil, transmission oil, water coolant, premium gas and tire air.  This car is powerfully magnetically human!  Zero complaints and at 157,000 miles I expect it to last another 20 years!

Cons

Didn't even know the 1994 & 1995 DeVille were the last cast iron engines.  Thereafter aluminum NorthStar & related issues, problems and short longevity.  I am blessed.  Try to buy one of these 1994's or 1995's; not for sale!

The Best Low Maintenance Car Ever; Engine Wise And Electronic Wise. It Just Doesn't Break Down! — I disliked the fact that no one told me I had one of the last sturdy gems of Cadillac. Now I will really love my baby! 1994 & 1995 DeVille will go down in history as the best engine in the most newest Cadillac ever built!

Heaven On Wheels — Probably the best car i ever owned. It handled like a cloud. Rarely needed maintenance, I had to replace a wire in my dash that costed $400, but thats it. Gas mileage on the interstate is amazing. Its fun to drive as long as you enjoy cruising, not that it couldn't hold its own in a stock race but i wouldn't use it for that.

Pros

Very smooth ride. Gas mileage was over 20 mi. to the gallon. Very roomy inside and trunk.

Cons

It needed a heater core the first week we owned it.  Then it needed a strut. But we knew going in that it had 130,000 miles

I Fell In Love With Car At First Sight. — I loved this car. I did not want to trade it. I had to have a reliable vehicle because I traveled for business. The car got up to 180,000 miles. So I had to trade. This car had the smoothest ride. And it was as beautiful the day I traded it as it was when I bought it, at 130,000 miles.

Sex Tank That Drive Black Dudes Crazy. — This is Prissilla, My 94 Deville she's got the 4.9L V8, and while the northstar (N*) is rated at more power, I've "raced" a few and any that beat me did it no more than their door to my hood, I love the car, I actually Bring it to street racing meetups, and it may not beat a swapped, turboed, and stripped Civic, but its more than enough to keep up with them during spirited driving. My cadillac was maintained Religiously, as it was a Canadian Service Vehicle... (Found out after I bought it) I have had to do a few paint touch ups, but its got 183k Miles and just got the power antennae, and Fuel Pressure Regulator replaced. Those are the only repairs i've needed in the last 9 months, and 8000 Miles. I average 13 MPG City (Computer says 15) and over 32 Highway (in the right conditions... 25-28 is normal for highway... if you factor in that I have not hd to replace anything but the tires, power antennae, and Fuel Pressure Regulator, its much cheaper than something else... My dads 95 Camry 2.2l, Auto.. GREAT car, always goes when needed.. he gets 24mpg avg. I get 20mpg avg on premium Gas.. if you calculate 4800 miles a year (20 miles a day, 20 times a month) the cadillac cost just over $960 yearly for gas While my dads Camry for the same amount of driving at 24mpg, costs just barely under $760 for a difference of $200, or $0.55 per day... Difference is that when he needed to move bricks for the garden, $40 - uhaul, when he needed to take stuff to storage$45 - uhaul, when he needs to drive more than 3 people and himself, $60 - rental car. when he wants to go camping, someone elses car... The 4300lb Deville just hauled my brother and I with 5 loaded duffle bags 3 computers, water, food, and a full tank of gas through 3 mountain ranges and got 29 there, and 27mpg coming back, and on top of that, it is rated to tow up to 3500lbs, more than enough to save my dads camry when it breaks, let alone bricks, bags, a camper trailer, 20 foot boat, and more than enough to tow the miata, and the tercel its previously saved from the side of the road. The Cadillac Deville is one of the most underrated cars out there.... Mine has been with me for what seems like a long time, but I hope will only be a chapter in our long story together.

Ricky Vs The 1994 Cadillac Concours — First 4 years of ownership and up to 90K miles on the odometer, this behemoth of a car was one of the most spacious & gracious of cars I have ever owned. Once this 100K mile/fisrt tune up car hit95K more or less, everything that could go wrong with it, and I mean EVERYTHING, went haywire. The electrical system has gone haywire on it. The dealership cannot catch up to it's bugs. EVERYTHING electrical has failed!

cost of repairs, insurance

Pop Lockin' In My Cadillac — It's plenty fast in a relaxed way, gets 25-30MPG on the highway if you know how to use it, and it has a great stereo for when I need to up my A-game. On the downside, the driver's side window won't go down, 'cause of a stripped gear somewhere in the system. Annoying 'cause I just GOT a new window motor. Also, the A/C's on the fritz, but beyond that, I can't complain!

If You Got The Mula Then Go For It Or It Will Suck Your Money Like A Bedbug — unique and inovative designe which still stands out from other models, a power full engine. A high performance car, but not build for hot climate regions like middle east or africa, engine heating problem for the hot climate region, parts and maintenance.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
