    New owner of a 2001 Deville DHS

    I've owned a couple Caddies over the years, last one being an 1989 Deville Sedan.
    Wanting to get out from under the payments of my 2011 Silverado, I sold it and started a hunt for a low milage Caddy I could buy without financing much money.
    I found the 2001 Deville DHS with 66,000 miles. Dealer tag was $8998, I paid $7700. I know that was a little more than book value according to, but it was loaded, clean and low milage.

    Besides what I would considered standard, it has the touch screen stereo with 6 disc CD changer and CD navigation. It also has the night vision, but the camera lens is broke, so it's not working. Also has something I hadn't seen before and that was the rear window and side rear window power privacy/sun screens. Kind of a neat feature I thought. All 4 seats are heated. The drivers seat didn't work, so the dealer had a local company install an after market seat heater that has it's own off/low/hi button the side of the seat. It came with a 3 year warranty and cost the dealer $195. Has the 2 driver seat/steering wheel preset buttons as well as an exit button, something new to me. Not sure if power moon roof is standard, but it has that as well. Also, a nice set of after market wheels that had to have cost a couple grand new. Had a new set of rubber on it as well. Rides like, well, a Cadillac. LOL

    No oil leaks that I could see or smell from the engine.

    No photo yet, but you guys know what they look like anyways.

    Congratulations on your find Sounds like a nice lower mileage Caddy. I like the DHS models because there is no center console and I own a bad knee that likes the extra room. My favorite feature is the DHS dash (same gauges as a DTS). I like how the DHS/DTS gauge cluster seems to jump alive when you turn the key on.

    Some have the power moon roof, some don't. During my Caddy search I looked at a couple with moon roofs but mine doesn't have one.

    All DHS have rear sunshade

    Nigh vision camera is 3k from dealer 5-1500 from bone yard

    Cd nav hasn't been updated since 2002. I wouldn't trust it.

    Rear sun screen is powered. Sides are not.

    Sunroof is probably one of the few available options. It was not standard.

    Congrats! Nice car, enjoy.

    That is true for his 2001 DHS. But if others are curious, there are DVD navigation disc upgrades available from GM for our 2002 to 2005 Devilles:
