    Thumbs up Help me decide which deville to buy?

    All prices are out the door(tax, tag, title incl). Trying to decide if the bit of extra money or miles are worth getting a higher model(DHS, DTS) or newer vehicle:

    2000 Cadillac Base, White Diamond, 24,700mi, $19,000
    2000 Cadillac DTS, Cashmere, 38K mi, $21,900
    2000 Cadillac Base, Silver, 24K mi, $22,500
    2001 Cadillac DHS, Silver, 25k, $23,000

    Maybe(Distant 2nd to Deville) - 2002 Buick Park Ave Base, Silver, 24k mi, $20,500

    Prefer silver, then white/white diamond. Just looked at a cashmere base today, never considered that color but what is your opinion as compared to silver or white?

    Which Deville should I seriouisly consider based on price, miles, options, color?

    :To CaddyMan since you owned a 2000 DTS, Were extra features over base and DHS worth the upgrade when you bought?

    Thanks again for your opinions everyone on my first two posts since I'm a newb.

    feature wise i cant really say there was anything that was worth buying over a the DHS. Honestly, I am a young guy, i wanted something big, but with a sporty edge to it, that is why i went for the DTS. 17 inch wheels, bucket seats, analog guages, monochormatic exterior, shifter mounted on floor. If these things dont matter to you like they did to me, than a DHS would be good for you. I personally would opt for a DHS over a base deville. There arent many big upgrades, most of them are appearence upgrades, but there are definite differences between the two cars. (DHS is more luxurious than a base deville)

    2001 Cadillac DHS, Silver, 25k, $23,000

    Would be my personal choice.....but Id like to know what warrenty you are getting....if any of them are already certified then I would go with any.....but I think the 2001 would be a better year too........also does this particular one have wood wheel....upgraded wheels...top....etc???

    I'd go with the Buick. I like my Cadillac, and she currently has about 82.6k miles on the clock, but I know that I'll probably get something GM with a 3.8L V6 whenever I get rid of this car. I've heard too many bad stories about the N* motors.

    If im not mistaken the Intake in the 3.8 is a pos and can basically blow up.......destroying the engine......not a rare thing either.
