I think there must be a GM executive working here as moderator. My latest post asking about the vulnerabilties of early head gasket failure and leaky crankcases has been locked. I dont know why when every other post as far as you can read in one week of history here is askin for help about thier NS's leaking head gaskets, warped heads, over heating, drinking oil, dripping oil. IF any educated person would read this they would stay away from these cars. As an example here is a post with pictures from a very meachanical able person posted on this site. Take time and read through his post and look at the work involved in replacing head gaskets or replacing seals. If I owned a 97-2000 NS with 80k or more miles that the head gasket havent been replaced, I'd be selling quick. http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/northstar-performance-technical-discussion/123689-my-photo-essay-n-head-gasket.html

Yes, we all know Northstars blow up. Trust me. But we'd rather drive a Cadillac than be caught dead in a Lincoln. Damn they're ugly.

LOL LOL

I knew a guy that drove a Lincoln once too...
He had to take a double dose of Viagra to over come what his car did to him... His wife left him.. True storey... Very sad.

PS to the guy above, you have no clue what you are talking about... The 2000 North-star was redesigned and uses different head bolts then the 1997-1999 model...If you are going to preach doom and gloom get your facts straight.

I glad you caddy owners feel that way. You maybe able to rescue the economy and GM if you keep driving them. I will just keep on buying and driving Lincolns and spending my money and time on old convertibles that keep on rising in value. You guys have nothing on common sense.

Correct. When my northstar blew up, I cut a hole in the bottom of the car and have been flintstoning it ever since.

What was the factory warranty for 2001 Caddy deville? 6/60? What ever it was, the average age of the new buyer was over 50. The failure results are not wide spread knowledge yet on the web. Very few 48+ work the web for knowledge or to post complaints. Guys, just ask any car dealer/ friend/ mechanic they will tell ya, Walk away if you want a reliable trust worthy car that will go 160k that wont nickle and dime ya. Why do they make taxis and livery cars out of the same platform. Why dont they make taxis out of devilles? The people that make money out of cars know. Why would'nt you want the most out of your money?

Thats a nice NEW limo. You guys are missing and not addressing my point. If you can afford a new Caddy every 3 yrs WHy not go for it. But when you pay Cash for your cars and except them to run over 100k, why not get the best that you can. I feel sorry for the ones that Finally get to the level of being able to upgrade their lives to experience a luxury car only to be screwed by a bad design.
