Pros

Great looking car, fun to drive and 25 mpg + on the interstate.

Cons

Expensive repairs, poor fuel economy in town.

Drive One, You'll Like It! — Fun to drive. Nice smooth ride. Nice sound system. Great performance, strong motor. Good solid car. Love the looks. Little maintenance, but when something breaks, its a little expensive. It's very enjoyable to drive and I notice that I turn a few heads with it.

Pros

Leather seats, 12-disc cd changer, 22 mpg in city and 31 mpg highway

Cons

Premium unleaded gas only

Low Mileage — This is my second cadillac to own. It has a 4.6 liter V-8 engine with tons of power. This car comes with a 12-disc cd changer stock and it is equipped with a Bose stereo system. For those who like thier bass..well this car has plenty stock but adding a couple of subs doesn't hurt lol. Leather seating and heated front seats make this car nice to have in the winter. I can say that it's a very reliable vehicle that could last someone a very long time. For a '97 it only has 115000 miles on it so it has tons of life left.

320 000kms On It The Day I Traded It In. — This car was the best car I have owned, I bought it with 12350kms on it, drove the hell out of it, Maintance and a gas tank were the only issues.The fuel milage was good, TONS of power and It looks great. I traded it in on my BMW 750LI, I hope I can get 300 000+ out of it, time will tell

Pros

I love this car!   Every  thing on this vehicle works perfect except for cd player.

Cons

The 12 disc cd changer in the trunk not a good idea , should be in dash instead. Sometimes it doesn't work when its cold out.

Classy Looking Car , People On The Street Take Second Looks At It . — There is nothing I dislike about this car except the 12 disc cd changer in the trunk. that should have been left out , better in the dash instead. I am a long distance truck driver and after a long trip there is nothing better than going home from work in leather heated seats!!

Pros

My first owned vehicle. Totaly amasing once you start playing with it. Drives great handles well and everything options are amasing.

Cons

factory setup for intake system is too much of a restriction for the size of the engine.

Great Vehicle — Parts are expensive when you dont know how to play around the costs. Repairs can ve an extreme hassle. But the car is totally worth it. But need to be willong to do the work requiered to keep it running good. Funcar on the highway not scared To pass on the highway.

looks good, drives well

Well Built, — The 97 Cadillac Seville is a great car to buy used, if it has been well taken care of by previous owners. If not then a pretty body is expensive to maintain and operate. They are, at least so far manageable issues

Top Notch — Very solid and comfortable ride. My first caddilac and I was extremely impressed with the balance of performance and luxury. Options included everything you could possible want and then some. Even after twelve years of being on the road it still gets a lot of attention.
