2000 Cadillac Seville Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
Cadillac’s flagship sedan gets a handful of new features this year, including an airbag suppression system for the front passenger seat. The front passenger-side airbag will not deploy if the seat is empty or occupied by a small child. Weight-based sensors in the seat determine when the airbag should not deploy in a frontal collision.

Seville was redesigned for the 1998 model year and returns in SLS (Seville Luxury Sedan) and STS (Seville Touring Sedan) models.

Exterior
With an overall length of 201 inches, the front-drive Seville is 6 inches shorter than the new DeVille. Seville is smaller because it is Cadillac’s key export model, and most European garages can hold cars that are a little over 5 meters long.

Interior
Front buckets are standard on the SLS and STS and can be equipped with Cadillac’s adaptive seating feature. Ten air cells in the upholstery change pressure about every four minutes to adapt the seat to the occupant and the way he or she is sitting.

Among new options for both models is a navigation system with a 5-inch color display in the dashboard and touch-screen controls.

Under the Hood
Cadillac says that several internal changes to its 4.6-liter V-8 engine have lowered emissions, reduced noise and improved fuel economy. This engine comes two ways: with 275 horsepower in the SLS and with 300 in the STS. Both now can operate on regular gas, though Cadillac recommends premium for best performance and efficiency.

Safety
In addition to the new standard airbag-suppression system that does not deploy the front passenger airbag if the seat is empty or is occupied by a child weighing less than 66 pounds, a new ultrasonic warning system that operates in reverse gear is optional on both models. The ultrasonic parking assist uses sensors in the rear bumper to alert the driver through chimes and lights when the car is within 5 feet of an object.

Side-impact airbags for the front seats, anti-lock brakes, traction control and StabiliTrak, an anti-skid system, are standard on both Sevilles.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
