A Luxury Car And The Green Machine! — WHat I like about it is that it starts all the time and it is dependable. The only thing is it does waste gas if u punch it. So please be easy on her and she will be easy on you. God BLESS

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The car was well taken care by one owner and it drives smooth. It lets you know when something is wrong.. It have everything that you need to travel.

Cons: It wastes Gas in city buto n the free it SAVES like a champ from northstar 30 mls to the Gallon

Excellent Car I Kind Of Hate To Sell It. — For those of you looking to pick up a reliable, safe and comfortable used sedan need look no further than the '97 Cadillac DeVille. It has all the luxury features you want and then some... The Northstar V8 engine is powerful and gives that nice "V8" growl when you give it some throttle. The sterei system is great, with an adapator for MP#, IPODS, Msart phones... It has power everything and the most intelligent lighting system I've ever seen in a car. It turns the headlights on when needed and somehow even knows when to dim the dashboard lights and when not to - amazing. The '97 DeVille gives you excellent value for your used car dollar.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Smooth riding car.  Looks like new.  2 Owners, my Step father and myself.  26 to 27 MPG on the highway.  All Cadillac cars have almost every option and they all work.  Great stereo system. MP#, IPHONE adapator.

Cons: 16 17 MPG in the city.

A Classy Car With A Classy Reputation. — The caddy WILL NOT FALL APART!!! it will nvr be a sports car, but it is fun to push the pedal to the floor! the v8 northstar is a quality engine. the outside is nothing flashy... but it is vary "caddy" in design

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: it's a caddy... duh!

Cons: gas milage isn't the best

Avoid It....unless You Want To Flirt With Your Mechanic On A Weekly Basis. — Acceleration is phenominal - effortless. Braking is yet to be desired, floaty, no pedal feedback, not stable during harsh braking - likes to wander. Handling? No, you AIM this car and hope it goes in that direction. Build quality is surprisingly very good, but the engine is the biggest pile of crap I have ever owned. Lower rod knock early in the game, LOTS of lifter chatter for no apparent reason. Taken to EIGHT mechanics, everything checked out, yet sounded like I was dragging pots and pans under the car when it was running. Constant repairs - all VERY expensive. Countless oxygen sensors, a/c compressor was awful, tried going out MANY times. Gave a beautiful light show every 20 miles of "service engine soon, (Code #) History, (Code #) Current, Check Gages" This car was a headache.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It rode incredibly well.

Cons: Lemon - anything that could go wrong, seemed to go wrong.

Its Sweet — It rattles sometimes and the rear spring is busted. Gets up to speeds of 160 MPH but it is a high maintenance car. Horrible acceleration. But it is fun to drive. It has a v8 and revs like a beast.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It gets up to 160 MPH and has a V8.

Cons: Horrible mpg

My Cadillac — Great car, smooth ride, I love the interior. We took it to Ocean Isle Beach North Carolina and it got 25 miles per gallon. The trunk space is more than enough. I love driving this car. Enough with the grandpa jokes people, I know that I am too young to drive a car like this, but it is what I like.

Pros: Ride, styling, room

Cons: brake system

Cadillac Deville — Powerful V8 engine, and a very smooth suspension. Black leather interior. Great performance. This was a great car to start with. A car in similar quality can be expected to be bought for five to six thousand dollars. This is a great car to go for on a Sunday drive.

Pros: 4.6 Liter v8 Northstar engine.

Cons: Gas guzzler.
