The 5th Generation Seville — Cadillac's elegant and tasteful 5th generation Seville was introduced in 1998, and while it didn't make a huge impact on sales of BMW's 5-series and Mercedes E-class, it helped Cadillac establish itself as more than a maker of luxo boats. This car had the moves to back up it's power, and an interior which was the highest of all GM vehicles. It offered more features than any vehicle the General had to offer, and is still a great buy on the used car market today. The '92-'97 Seville was a gigantic success, but could never match the levels of refinement and poise the competition had to offer. So for '98, Cadillac used that formula and improved on it big time giving us the Seville STS. The lines were still sleek and elegant, but now more European looking vs. the 4th gens Italian look inspired by the Pininfarina Allante. The overall theme was still the same: SLS was the more luxury oriented model while the STS was the performance model. Both were powered by Cadillac's excellent 4.6L DOHC 32V Northstar V8, putting out 275hp in SLS and 300hp in STS. All of this power was driven through the front wheels, which some people thought of as a curse. i personally think it was a fine decision, as GM was able to save money by improving greatly on the 4th gens K-body platform. The differences were pretty amazing, making the old Seville seem like a marshmellow. The '98 Seville was by no means a sports sedan: too much body roll and way to much understeer prevented the car from being a true BMW rival, but the car was great in its own right. The handling was neutral, great for highway cruising and could handle the curves without too much complaining. The interior was much of the same story, a hit or miss situation. While the leather was sumptuous and the materials were soft to the touch, many cheap bits ruined an otherwise good interior. The visors and headliner material are a mouse fur-like fabric, the door sills are made of Cavalier grade plastic, and the weatherstripping was known to pop off low mileage cars. However, the instrument panel was very Lexus-like in design, and the gated shifter and loads of Zebrano wood helped improve the interior greatly. Seat comfort was high for long ranges, but for carving corners the seats fail to hold. The back seat is comfortable with room for two, but a bit smaller than most would think. If a 3rd person is stuck in the back, they’d better prey it isn’t for longer than 30 minutes. Otherwise, they’d might try jumping out the windows. Oops, wait they can’t. The rear windows only roll down half-way. Smart, Cadillac. Give us a $50k sedan with fully retractable rear windows. The trunk is large with low lift over high and plenty of space to store luggage, and the center of the rear seat folds down for longer loads. Changes for the Seville was few: ’99 gained massaging lumbar seats and a few new color choices. ’00 Seville’s now ran on regular fuel thanks to some tuning to the Northstar engine. ’01 gained an infotainment system which allowed used to read e-mail while driving. ’02 gained SLS appearance package while mimicked the STS to a T. The ’03 was arguably the best with the introduction of the Magneride Suspension system, also used in the ’03 50th Anniversary Corvette. This system allows the shocks to adjust to road conditions every few milliseconds and handling was greatly improved. ’03 was the last year for Seville STS, as that car was discontinued to make room for brand new ’05 STS. ’04 SLS saw few changes, and the Seville name was layed to rest.

Smooth And Comfortsblr — It is a very quick and comfortable car. I wish the gas mileage was better, but no problems on the highway. Accelerates quite well and although it is not a Porshe, it handles sufficiently. . It is fun to drive on long distances.

Pros

BOSE sound, endless gadgets, unburstable engine and sheer power

Cons

Wheel trim, exhaust design and cheap wood veneer inside reveal its lack of real class

The Fastest Front-wheel Drive Production Car — Extraordinary in many ways. Very wide, too wide really for relaxed driving in towns or lanes. 5.7V8 is just superb and traction maintain at all times, even if it doesn't always feel like it due to the soft suspension and some roll. Comfort, of course, and modern electronic dash display and BOSE sound system second to none. Requires nerve to drive hard and also to explain to others why you've got a 'pink' Cadillac. 24mpg not unreasonable.

2000 Sts — Good car! Fast and handles well. Too much maintenance costs for the price of the car. Should hold up better.
