Hello,

I have been checking out this forum now for about 2 months and about three weeks ago I purchased a 01, Seville, STS. :thumbsup: I have to say thanks to all that have gone before me here because I feel this forum has really helped me to find one of the best. When I was looking for this car I knew exactly what to look for and what to stay away from. Good Job all.

Let me brag a little. This is my third Cad, the first was a 76 Seville way back, then a 91 Deville. Now for the 01 STS. It's Graphite on the out and gray in. It has about every option but NAV. It's got a sunroof, 17s, cell, disc changer, all the wood, back sensors, HID, ON* and 40k + all the standard Cad goodies. I'm the 3rd owner of the car and it has always been dealer serviced. It hardly shows any signs of being a used car. Now for the bad news. The trunk has a leak but I can fix that. I ran the codes (I have the factory manual set and codes list) and came up with all 4 tire pressure sensors not communicating! Lets see, 40k miles and still has original tires, most likely sensor batteries. I'll see if I can fix this when I get my next set of tires. There was only one key and one remote. I picked up a remote from Ebay and had my dealer cut me a new key and reprogram the remotes. All together $125.00 (not bad). Oh yes and the other bad thing... It's my wife's car and she loves it. I'm sure I'll be doing much of this :worship: to get to drive it. Anyway I snapped off a couple of shots. Hope they post OK.

Thanks again.

Thanks to all for the warm welcome. I have already started using the forum to search for stuff and there is a lot here! This may take a while (Years).

See you in the inter-forum.
