Pros

Everything about it is amazing but I suggest securing the hood ornament somehow from under the hood to avoid having it stolen

Cons

The gas mileage can get a little out of control

Very Amazing Car, I Have Not Heard Anything Bad About It, Nor Do I Have Anything Bad To Say About It — I have only owned this car for a little over a month, but I have never driven something even close to this! The acceleration is amazing for such a huge car, I have to take 3 different highways each morning and ever night to get to my work in the main city so handling is key. It handles like a small car, yet I feel very safe in it knowing it will protect me in a crash. Braking is also amazing, I've had to slam the brakes a few times already due to animals in the road and so far they work great. The Build quality is like everything else I've described so far, nothing short of amazing, I really like the look of the wood inside, and I love the little feaures such as the power sunroof, heated and cooled front and rear seats, 6 CD Changer, and the power rear window sunshade. The only noise this car ever makes, is that satisfying roar of the V8 engine when I open her up on the straight stretches. The appearance is very decieving in the way that it looks like it would empty out anybodys bank account 5 times over, when I payed very little for it (Under $10,000). I really love the Bose sound system, it sounds amazing no matter what type of music you prefer, and when you turn it up, you are surrounded by the music. It is definetley a fun car to drive! It responds and drives like a sports car, yet has everything a large luxury sedan should hve and more. The only things I dislike about this car, is that the gas mileage can get a little out of control since you are always tempted to punch the gas a bit, and that the hood ornament is so easy to remove. I bought the car without one because somebody stole it off the car in the previous owner's driveway. It was another $45 out of my pocket. Other than that, I can surely say this is one amazing car, and I could go on further about all the things I like about this car, but I think I would rather go for a ride.Thank you for reading my review, and I hope this helps people if they are looking into a Cadillac like this.

Will Buy Another Cadillac — Use the car as transportation and to travel. Needs to have more power but not at the cost of mileage. Has been a good investment so far. Still looks very nice when washed and cleaned. Gas mileage when traveling around 25 and very comfortable to ride in.

Nice Ride — Like the ride Rear window motors and door handles a little fragile and expensive. The engine burns 1/2 of quart of oil every 8000 miles under extreme use 2 quarts (northstar engine's . if you do not pay attention to the oil you will smoke the motor- Motor will go over 200000 miles without rebuild

Have Always Loved Cadillacs. Will Always Recommend Cadillacs. — I absolutely love this car. Recommend a Cadillac to anybody. Aspiring for a newer one with better performance and build quality. Despite the hype, not that expensive to own and is a blast to drive being such a large car.

Pros

The 2000 model year saw the first major redesign since 1994 and the introduction of the last generation of the DeVille. Production started in August 1999. The exterior was completely redesigned featuring a sportier, elegant and more aerodynamic design with a drag coefficient of 0.30. The revamped interior featured completely new door panels and seats, while the dashboard and radio face only received minor facelifts.

Cons

Nothing, this car is great for those that are looking for comfort.

Luxurious — This Cadillac offers stability control, active suspension, and it's a magnificent car for Cadillac lovers. Make sure you test drive this vehicle to see how amazingly smooth it feels on the road. You will fall in love with this ride.

If I Could Afford Another One, I Would Buy It In A Heart Beat. — Performance - acceleration, handling, braking, great gas mileage for a car it's size. The ride is excellent, especially on long trips. Would not drive anything else. This car is a blast to drive. Just a great, very comfortable full size automobile.

Great Ride As Long As Ur Pockets Are Deep! — Fun car to drive, very safe on the highway as well as stop and go traffic of the city. Gas mileage sucks and repair costs are astronomical once the warranty runs out. Comfortable cadillac ride as expected and responsive handling.

Pros

Sporty appearance. Quiet ride, very reliable and stable on ice, deep snow. Sunroof and heated seats are options that add to the comfort along with 6CD, Tape, Single CD, OnStar, Sirus options. Great gas mileage for larger luxury car with safety too.

Cons

Warning light triggers are nuisance like last 5 Cadillacs we've had in the family.

Sporty, Luxurious, Safe And Economical For Road And Town Use. — Friends who have drive Lexus, BMW's, Toyotas all comment on how quiet and comfortable my DeVille is after riding just a couple of blocks, typically. Red color with chrome wheels, sound system, sunroof, airbags and all heated seats make a great all-around car.

Band Travels In Cadillac, Loves It. — Very good American car. I use it for road trips for our band. It doesn't cost more than an SUV. Very comfortable on long trips. The black exterior makes it look important. I hope to purchase another Cadillac in the future.

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

Low Miles — This car rides well, has no mechanical problems and gets pretty good gas mileage. Tip top shape. White diamond color and chrome make it a beauty. Very low miles at 50,300. Located in The Villages. Kept in garage at all times.
