hey everyone. i been lurking around here for a while and i'm about ready to start looking to buy a 00 or 01 deville very soon. any advice on not buying a lemon?
i have a pretty modded up 94 mustang so now i'm looking for a car thats the complete opposite, hehe. i will probably end up doing some little mods to the deville (i am the kind of guy who put nitrous in his 91 corolla:))

Welcome hungyyhippo!

Thanks for signing up with us! As you do your search check your local dealership you can find it here:http://www.cadillacforums.com/cadillac-dealers/index.php.

See if they have any "certified" pre-owned models. This will give you the balance of the 6yr/100k full warranty. That is the best way to buy one (IMO). You'll pay a little extra, but it pays for itself should anything go really wrong! There are plenty out there, shop around. Choose the one with the correct equipment and start dealing! Good luck!

Exactly.

Look for service records. That year had the Dexcool alread in the radiator, so the cooling system should be well taken care of.

Good Luck.
