58650 Miles, Excellent Condition, New Tires, Runs Great on 2040-cars
Mountain City, Tennessee, United States
|Up for auction is a very nice 1997 Cadillac DeVille sedan in Gold over tan. The car only has 58,650 miles. It has been owned by my wife's family since September, 1997 and had only 14,346 miles when they purchased it. My father in law passed away only a few months after purchasing it and my mother in law rarely drove it. It has always been kept under a carport and out of the weather and the condition shows that. The paint still has the luster that it had when new and the leather interior is soft and supple and shows very little wear. The carpet is clean and the headliner and door panels all appear as in new condition. In addition to almost looking new on the outside the inside still smells new. I have pictured the bottom of the doors and they are as clean as when the car left the assembly line and obviously have no rust. The car has a few small dings that are difficult to photograph.
I have driven it a little over 400 miles since the first of the year and can report that the Northstar V-8 performs impeccably with smooth and strong power delivery while the 4-speed automatic shifts smooth and effortlessly. The car runs and handles very well. It sports a set of new Uniroyal Tiger Paw Touring tires that, while quiet and smooth, provide excellent grip without sacrificing the smooth and effortless cruising these cars are known for. While installing the new tires the condition of the brake pads and rotors were examined and found to be in good condition. T
The climate control works as it should whether it is 65 or 20 degrees all the while in auto mode. Just set the desired temp and the climate control does the rest. The cruise control works, all windows function as they should, the door locks work, power seat controls work and the soft close trunk function still performs as it should. Even the light under the hood still works as it should!
What does not function properly? The power antenna does not retract although the motor operates so more than likely the gears are stripped. And the windshield washer pump does not function.
The simple reason for selling is that we are at a point where we do not need a car like this. If you are looking for a Cadillac of this vintage you will be hard pressed to find another this clean.
All the books are present and I have 4 sets of keys for the car.
Please look closely at all the photos and email with any questions and do not assume anything. I will be happy to answer any questions and provide any additional photos upon request.
I can assist with shipping.
Good luck as someone will get a great automobile.
The car is also for sale locally so I reserve the right to cancel the listing at any time.

Cadillac is recalling about 656 2014 ELR models made between September 26, 2013 and February 14, 2014, because of a fault with the electronic stability control system. On cars without adaptive cruise control, it's possible that diagnostics could prevent the system from telling the driver if ESC is on or off.

Cadillac has a software fix ready and repairs begin on April 17. Alan Adler, General Motors' recall and legal spokesperson, tells Autoblog that only about 55 of the affected cars are in the hands of owners. The rest are either on dealer lots or still at the factory. There have been no reported injuries or crashes caused by the fault.
The correction for the stability control system involves a software recalibration of the electronic brake control module that takes around 20 minutes to perform. While they use the same platform, the Chevrolet Volt isn't involved in this recall because it "uses a different a brake control module," said Adler.
Well, this is awkward.

A few years ago, Audi Of America's boss Johan de Nysschen went on record describing the Chevrolet Volt as "a car for idiots." Fast-forward to earlier this summer, and the well-regarded executive suddenly found himself in a new office with new business cards bearing the title: President, Cadillac. That means that among other challenges, de Nysschen is now tasked with selling the ELR, a car that is, at its core, a Volt in a sportier, less utile frock wearing a price tag that's twice as expensive.
Frankly, it's not a prospect we imagine the South African executive and recent Infiniti boss relishes. Just about nobody is buying the ELR - Cadillac has sold but 774 examples of its plug-in hybrid coupe this year and it presently has an almost a 200-day supply according to Automotive News. What's more, those numbers actually represent big improvements over just a few months ago, before GM started heaping on the incentives. The cynic in us says that the bad news for De Nysschen is that he's got a borderline sales-proof car in his new corporate garage. The good news? Cadillac customers apparently aren't idiots.
In terms of styling, inside and out, the ELR hits the ball out of the park.
Cadillac has pulled the wraps off of its newest family member, the long-rumored, Voltec-powered, eye-catching extended range hybrid coupe called the ELR. The car makes use of the same basic architecture as the Chevrolet Volt, but has been thoroughly layered on with design, technology and performance tuning - with the goal of being a properly situated product for the Cadillac brand.
