2001 Cadillac Seville Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
New telematics features and a sport suspension package for the STS model are the main additions for the Seville, Cadillac’s flagship sedan.

The new Infotainment option provides voice-operated services such as navigation assistance and downloading e-mail from the Internet (and having it read aloud). The package includes hardware for docking a cellular phone that can be operated by voice or keypad, an infrared port for personal digital assistants and a voice memo recorder.

The e-mail and Web-browsing capabilities, which are disabled while the car is moving, will be test marketed in several areas to determine if there is sufficient demand to offer it nationally.

OnStar is standard on all Cadillac models and includes emergency services and assistance in finding destinations. Two premium services will be added later in the model year. These services include “personal calling,” which allows hands-free, voice-activated calls from the car without an additional cellular phone contract, and “virtual advisor,” which provides Internet-based information such as headlines, sports scores, stock quotes and weather conditions, also through voice activation.

The sport package for the STS includes 17-inch wheels and tires (16-inchers are standard) and firmer suspension settings.

Exterior
With an overall length of 201 inches, the front-drive Seville is 6 inches shorter than the DeVille. The Seville is smaller because it is Cadillac’s key export model, and most European garages ca...

Exterior
With an overall length of 201 inches, the front-drive Seville is 6 inches shorter than the DeVille. The 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 both the SLS (Seville Luxury Sedan) and STS (Seville Touring Sedan) models and can be equipped with Cadillac’s adaptive seating feature. Ten air cells in the upholstery change pressure about every 4 minutes to adapt the seat to the occupant and the way the passengers are sitting.

A navigation system with a 5-inch color display in the dashboard and touch-screen controls also is optional on both Seville models.

Under the Hood
Both models use a 4.6-liter V-8, but this engine comes two ways. It produces 275 horsepower in the SLS and 300 hp in the STS. Both can operate on regular gasoline, though Cadillac recommends premium gas for best performance and economy. A four-speed automatic transmission comes with both engines.

Safety
Side-impact airbags for the front seats, antilock brakes, traction control and StabiliTrak — a lateral-skid control system — are standard on both Seville models.

General Motors had planned to add a suppression system last year that would turn off the front passenger-side airbag if the seat was empty or occupied by a small child. However, GM withdrew those plans because the system was not reliable in testing.

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.
