A while ago while I was at work, this lady pulled up in a really nice car. To be honest I wasn't sure what kind of car it was. I did notice it had a Cadillac logo on it. As soon as I got home I quickly went online and looked through some Cadillac models. I finally stumbled upon the car that I had seen, it turned out to be a 1993-1997 Cadillac Seville. I looked through some images on Google. Instantly fell in love with the look of the car. Later on I found out that there was a "Newer" model the 1998-2003/4 Seville. I got online again looked through a couple images, it was love at first sight lol. To me this car was so ahead of it's time. I love everything about this car. I feel like this car doesn't look like the typical Cadillac that people are use to. It's not to big but it's also not small at all. Right then and there I told my self "I am going to get one of these cars even if it's the last thing I do" lol. Everyone kept telling me not to get a Cadillac because they are to problematic, I just kept saying that I didn't care.
So fast forward a couple months, I worked my butt off and saved up some money looked around and found my first car ever
. A 1999 Cadillac Seville SLS. I bought it in October 2012 a month after my 22nd Birthday
so it was a late Bday present for me lol. I admit that I did not do any research when it came to common mechanical problems that this car may have. I knew nothing about the differences in the engines between 1998/1999 and 2000+. I just jumped in, like I said I love everything about the interior and exterior of this car. The interior of the car is in really good condition for the miles and the year. It has 153,000 miles Hopefully it will go many more miles.
A couple of things that I am dealing with right now is the Fuel level gauge. It stays on full most of the time never goes down no matter what. I have to put in a new Cam Sensor and a couple other issues. I really hope that nothing major happens to it (Blown Head Gasket). I know I know -1998-1999 are the most common years for blown head gaskets, but I will be positive
. I am trying to maintain it as much as possible. In the case of any major issues I am trying to prepare myself, saving up some money and doing a lot of research on this car. Right now I am dreaming on buying a 2003/2004 STS/SLS. So hopefully some day I will own one of those and I either keep this car or get rid of it, but for now this car is my baby and I hope that we will be together for a very long time. I seriously love this car no matter what people think or say about them.
Sorry for the long story lol.
