I hear this from time to time.. Why is this? Is it even true? It just doesn't seem to make a lot of sense to me.. What does the Seville have that the DeVille doesn't? I would guess nothing...

It may just be that DeVille owners are more careful. Seville owners may drive their cars harder and lead to more problems.

The numbers do show that Seville is terribly unreliable, but they also show that the 2000 and 2002 DeVilles were VERY reliable.

Yeah, that's why I'm wondering.. It seems they are more reliable as far as everyone is concerned. I'd like to find out why..

What about the 2001 DeVille? You didn't mention that one as being as reliable...

Wouldn't the higher "fleet" sales of the Deville affect those numbers? I mean if the Deville has a higher percentage of its total sales to fleets, then I would think that there will be fewer reported issues with them. There is also the posibility that since a lot of the fleet sales for the Deville are W20 cars and therefore substantially heavier-duty, that they would scew the numbers too.

A lot of reviews say that. On edmunds, they tested a 98 Seville and wouldnt stop talking about its parts keeping vibrating and comming apart. On other reviews I read about the DeVille, I read it was a solid car, with no vibrations.

I have a 96 Seville, and with all the quirks associated with the struts, northstarisms.........am I the only one who at times wishes my Seville had the simplicity and conventionalism of the 96 Fleetwood, with the LT1, RWD, ..and with regular cheap struts/springs/shocks?

What I love about the Seville is the looks, and definitely not the quirks.

They had a good idea in mind, but just didnt follow through....

I would take a mint condition fleetwood brougham fully loaded with the gold package (like our 95) over any cadillac....... IMO they will be timeless, and if well kept, will be worth some serious money later.......

Hey Elvis, what do you base that on?
You still didn't answer, Elvis.

And the reason I revive these threads, RBraczyk and Davesdeville, is because many new people join and I am certain got something to say and because you can always look up at your postings with an examining eye.
