    Re: Its official, cadillacs are junk!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You guys must be living in lala land if you think having to add oil all time to a new car is normal because its not and its Gm's fault for not taking care of a known problem. You guys also have got to be kidding yourselves if you think that the northstar is a great motor because its the biggest pyle of shit that gm has produced and they continue to laugh all the way to the bank because we keep buying them thinking that they fixed the problem when they dont even attempt to fix the problem. Look I try my best to stay loyal to gm but when you have to tear a engine down with only 70K miles on it for a bullshit head gasket job do to their non engineering asses then you cant be serious on how great these cars are and everyone talks about how expensive a foriegn car is to service, LOL at least you can go 200K before any major service is needed(engine tear down). For god sakes if I wanted to keep adding oil I would have just bought a 2 stroke motor. Better yet if someone wants a great deal on a 1999 STS Diamond White, 1 owner, immaculate all options or a 06 DTS pearl white with 15k miles, 1 owner also immaculate both needing nothing but a quart of oil every fuel stop then call me. Hell Ill even sell my 08 escalade. As soon as either of these cars sell Ill be going back to BMW's.

    Oil consumption in this motor is NOT a problem, that's the thing. Think of the performance you're getting... I bet you continuously top the oil off to the 'MAX' line. That will promote oil usage. You want to keep it half way between 'ADD' and 'MAX'..........

    Well..Not sure I agree about all of them being being crap. I got over 300K out of my 98 Deville. Sold it the other day. Just didnt want to start fixing stuff at this stage of the game. Original engine, Trany, alternator, starter. I did replace the A/C a couple years ago. The rear electronic suspension system sucks. That went out and I never fixxed it. Way to expensive! Pretty good car though. One thing for sure, parts for Cadillac are expensive.

    Ya I tried that also and when I checked it not even 50 miles later there was no oil what so ever on the dipstick. Im just done with these cars. Im sticking with bimmers and lexus. I just think that its rediculous that we have to make sure that there is still oil in the motor at ever fuel stop(well at least for me I do because apperantly the damn thing will run dry if I dont). I know you all keep saying that it needs to be driven hard but god damn these cars arent race cars and if you keep beating the shit out of them then you will have to replace the trans in it also. I have a viper and new z06 for going fast. My caddy is supposed to be my cruising cars.

    Re: Its official, cadillacs are junk!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If you are losing 1.5 quarts in less than 50 miles, you either have a smoke screen behind you from burning that much oil or you have one hell of a leak. I dont even know if the engine would continue to run if you're burning 1.5 quarts per 50 miles.

    Where are you located?

    Doubt it!

    Something is definitely wrong if you're losing that much oil in that short a period of time...

    Re: Its official, cadillacs are junk!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If you can afford brand new cars, why don't you just sell the Cadillacs and buy new ones instead of complaining about oil usage...?

    You shouldn't be posting this here anyways.

    True. Even Volkswagen parts will make Cadillac look inexpensive to maintain!

    I think the OP's a troll...
