2002 Deville DHS, 86,000 miles. Asking Price $2,900. Silver with grey leather interior, new Michelin tires. The car was dealer maintained and garage kept until I purchased it 5 months ago, i have all service records. The body and interior of the car are in excellent condition. The car started to run a little hot and I brought it to a local repair shop that flushed the radiator and installed a new thermostat which didn't , I had a 2nd opinion from a mechanic who thought the radiator pressure cap was bad and replaced it which didn't solve the problem. The 3rd mechanic said there are emissions in the radiator which indicates a head gasket failure and quoted $3500 to repair or $4700 for a replacement motor with 3 yr 100k warranty. After reading a number of postings regarding head gasket failure for this model on the forum it seems that the 3rd opinion is accurate. The car is located in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ.
