Hey Jay my car isn't faster than Nick's I get spanked every time especially now that he has done all the crap to it.
If I wanted to be faster I should have got an Eldo but then I can't haul my friends around with me.
The STS will spank the SLS and the ELDO....The only benefit of an SLS is maybe a smoother ride, because the STS has a sport tuned suspension....thats it........Interior styling is nicer in the STS too, more wood grain, Bose Audio, etc.
And I beg to differ on the whole STS will spank an Eldo mine sure as hell wouldn't I think you are thinking 93-97 because the 98-04 is a pooch compared to the good years I just like the technology in mine I would trade to get back my 94 that northstar was a freaking beast !
I'm most familiar with the ride of the Deville, but I really like the body styling of the '98+ SLS/STS. hence my choosing the SLS after reading posts on this forum, the better fuel economy was a plus. We're looking at retiring my Chrysler in about 5 years and by that time I'll be looking at the 07'+ DTS/DHS.
I also really like the non-painted bottom trim of the SLS, while the painted STS trim is pretty, the dirt roads I have to drive on don't make lower painted trim look good!
The SLS has lower horsepower AT PEAK. But more horsepower through must of the RPM range, and TORQUE. The STS definitely lacks torque. I'm sure my '01 STS would beat my old '97 SLS down a 1/4 mile, but the SLS would have it off the line. I've even thought about swapping the 300 hp cams out of my STS and installing the 275 hp cams. There's really that much difference.
If I had to do it all over again, I'd buy an SLS AJ to hook me up witand install the 3.71 transaxle and get h a PCM to accept the change in ratio.
TarQ! Holy crap man... I haven't seen you in forever... well I guess it has been forever since I've posted in the Sebring forums... how funny is that that we consistently buy the same vehicles!
Anyway.. I was just about to post my first post when I saw this one and felt it specifically applied to me. I purposely chose the SLS. It is cheaper to insure, has more torque at a lower rpm, and has more of a "Cadillac" ride. I don't care what any of you have been smoking but a normal person will not be able to feel an extra 25hp. Plus if you get one like mine that's fully optioned out you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the two if it weren't for the "SLS" on the back.
All of that aside, there is no need to be snobbish amongst ourselves... regardless of an SLS or an STS it is still a Seville.. it is still a Cadillac. Just look at it this way if given a choice between a SLS or say a Lexus, MB, etc... which would you choose?
I'm glad you posted that. It needs to be a constant reminder on this board. There are a lot of folks who look down on others for not having a particular TRIM of Seville or Eldorado. It's all Cadillac...and we're all here for the betterment of the brand and of the Cadillac community! :thumbsup:
So I've already had the actuator replaced on my 1997 SLS that controlled the defroster windshield vent. When that happened, it was blowing out cold air on the passenger's side windshield, and partially-warm air on the driver's side. It worked fine after I got it fixed. Now I turn on the A/C...
I haven’t hooked a gauge to the trans yet but it is my next step. I just changed the filter and fluid but the Eldorado doesn’t change in RPM or move unless you shift it into Drive Right. What could be possible causes? I have the shop manual but it’s poor in diagnosing this.
I was driving my 97 STS 4.6 L and when I parked left it idling, when i got back in car, i put it in reverse started too drive, then it stalled... started it back up drove it fine for a little time then when im on the freeway with cruise control set the cruise control just shut off, car...
I have a strange electrical problem all of a sudden the car died and stalled the check engine light is lit solid with no key in the ignition and nothing turned on white R in the key on the check engine light dims and what I move the ignition to the start position the engine turns over is normal...
