  1. Deville Concours ---> DTS......Differences?

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    What are the major differences between the 1997-99 DeVille Concours and 00-05 Deville DTS? I know it's a whole new body and platform, but it's the same underlying principle below....the full size DeVille with all the sporty accoutrements. Does the DTS drive a lot tighter than the Concours? Does...
  2. Premium vs Performance differences

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum 2010-2016
    I just bought a new Performance model, and note that the manual must include some of the features not in my model. One I noted says you can open the car with your remote/key in your pocket. So I walk up to the car and wait, wait, etc and nothing happens. :) I did manage to get in by hitting...
  3. bolt pattern differences between L37 and LD8?

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    I have been looking for parts for my l37 and have noticed at engines found at junk yards that vehicle has VIN Y but bolts look like VIN 9. Did they change bolt pattern/number of bolts or does that not make a difference? Even after finding the vin derivative, is there any way to prove it belongs...
  4. 92 Eldorado Suspension Differences

    Suspension, Brakes and Tires
    While researching suspension options for my 92 Eldorado, I noticed it is grouped with the 91 model, and the 93 and later models are separate. I'm wondering what the basic differences are, and if some parts will interchange of of later model cars. Thanks!

  8. Cornering Differences Between V6 and V8

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    I've owned 2 RWD V6 SRXs between March '04 and Feb. '10. Put a total of about 72,000 miles on them during that time. Always enjoyed how I could throw my SRX's into a cloverleaf. mph was very close to my GTOs and almost felt like there was less body roll. I took my '07 on the tail of the dragon...
  9. Differences in the CPO versus GMPP warrantys?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Hi Guys, What are the differences of a CPO versus the GMPP warrantys? How about what parts of the car they each cover? If I buy a V from a private party... can I still buy a GMPP for the car if it is out of the factory warranty? Am looking at an 05 with low miles, but the warranty expired...

  11. J55 Brake Differences

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    Quick question for those of you that might be in the know. Is the larger diameter rotors, calipers, rotor shield, and pads the only items that are different between the J55 brakes and the "standard" brakes on my 2009 AWD DI CTS? I might have the opportunity to upgrade and am curious if there is...
  12. 2009 vs 2010 differences

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Gentleman, I am considering purchase of either a 2009 or 2010 model, both are new. I am new to the forum, and wondering if there are any significant differences one should consider? Any interior or leg room differences? I am actually considering one without Recaros, as I think they will be a...
  13. Canadian and American Differences....

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006
    I understand why there are some differences between US and Can vehicles based on law differences (IE Headlight switch, Imperial vs Metric), but some things I just dont understand...if its due to tradition or what. Anywho I thought I would tell you about the differences that I see sitting in my...

    Cadillac Allante Forum

  16. Starter Differences from 472-500 ?

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    So after the 472-500 swap I did on my 68 SDV it has a little bit of trouble starting. I have a fuse/distribution block off the battery and from there it splits off and I have 4ga. wire to the starter, alternator and then a few pieces of 8ga to the misc. cabin power source's. In this...
  17. Deville's Front Coil Differences: 00-01 & 02-05

    Suspension, Brakes and Tires
    I've been planning on replacing the front struts/coils/mounts/seats/insulators on our 2000 base deville due to its harsh ride. While perusing parts catalogs online and from collision parts books, I've found that Cadillac changed the front coils and upper coil seat in 2002. I also learned that...
  18. Reliability differences between 07-08-09?

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    I'm getting close to buying the ESV. I've pretty much only been looking at certified ones. Obviously, the 07's are cheaper than 08's, and there's even a couple used 09's in the country. Is there any major reason to avoid the '07, given the choice? It's the first year in this series, and I've...

  20. Blue Color Differences?

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    I've been looking at several different certified 2008 (and even one 2009) ESVs over the internet. Although as best I can tell, there was only one blue color offered the last few years -- "blue chip." However, the color (on the pictures) seems to vary remarkably on different vehicles -- more...
