Cadillac DeVille

    Well, I don't think a 1/4 roof is anything 'stock'. This was added by some after-market outfit. All the 'vinyl roofs' on later model Cadillacs are after-market, these do not come as a Cadillac 'stock' item. I would guess the material is somewhat like all 'vinyl' roof material, and cleaners and 'dressings' found in auto part houses could be used.
  • If you are spending that much for a regulator, then you are getting jerked. I bought my drivers side regulator with motor for 36 bucks brand new on eBay over 2 years ago, took it over to pep-boys and for about $40 they installed it. So, I got everything fixed for under $100 and for the past two years I have had no problems and I use the regulator several times a day. Stay away from the dealers, unless you have a power train warranty that covers all repairs for $0. Only a fool goes to a dealer for out of pocket repairs.
  • This is a very sad state of affairs. Cadillac stopped making the Full Size American Luxury Car that has a V8.

    The last Full Size Caddy was the 2011 DTS (Deville Touring Sadan). Now they only make these cheezy small euro looking sports trash, i.e CTS, XTS, ATS, they may say Cadillac. But, they are not Caddies, too small and they look like hell!

    GM must be out of their minds to take the Deville/DTS off their lineup. The DTS was their flagship car. Now the American Dream is gone. Even Lincoln took the Towncar off their lineup.

    I belong to several large Cadillac forums and 1000's upon 1000's of Caddy lovers are sick and heartbroken over the end of Cadillac as we once knew it. When you saw a Caddy driving down the street, you could see it was a Caddy a mile away. All these new cars that Cadillac is making look like every other car. How can a limo be made and feel roomy if it's an XTS, etc;?

    I have an 01' Deville that I try to keep in the best condition possible, I even put a brand new tranny into it. There is nothing left that is large, plush, powerful and comfortable like a Deville...NOTHING!

    So, when I'm forced to get a "new" Caddy, it will be a 2011 DTS. But after that, then what? GM made a huge mistake taking the DTS off their lineup. So, that's it folks, Cadillac threw in the towel and are just making cars, not CADDIES.

    So, take good care of your DTS/Deville. Everything else they make is garbage, I'm sure millions will agree. If GM did some real research, they would find they made a horrible mistake by removing the Deville.

  • Hey guys,
    I have a 1995 Cadillac DeVille and my a/c blower motor will not stop running. It has killed my battery 2 times. I have to keep it unplugged until I need it and it only blows cold air on high through the dash to defrost the windshield. What could this be so I can have air flowing again?
