#1632 of 2635 Upgrading radio/CD to Navigation System
Nov 02, 2004 (6:50 am)
I recently had an idea to upgrade my current Bose radio/CD/cassette in my 2001 DHS to the Navigation System and saw a Cadillac Navigation (DVD) unit from a 2002 Deville advertised on eBay with the note that the seller also wanted to do the same thing but was reselling the unit when he was told by several "sources" the unit was incompatible with the 2001 Deville. Has anyone out there tried this and can confirm that this is true and you can't do it? I wanted to replace the radio with an up to date version of the Navigation System.

Does anyone know if the deville will be getting a style update, like the CTS and STS?

The 2006 Deville is supposed to be a major restyle. It will remain a FWD though.
#1636 of 2635 97 deville engine noise
Nov 09, 2004 (12:36 pm)
I have a noise coming from where the trans connects to the engine. unknown if its a bearing going bad or torque converter loose. does anyone know anyone who had the same problem? dealer believes its a bearing but i think otherwise. and its not the water pump.

I was thinking the same thing! Seems the site has been very quiet lately. Still trying to figure out the cruise control problem I mentioned in earlier posts. Has been to the dealer three times and they want it a fourth (2004 De Ville 19,000 Miles). Have been living with the variation of desired speed and actual after hitting the set button ( varies 1 to 7 mph). Since the variation is mostly one or two have been holding off on more time spent at the dealer. Other than that the car is very fine, runs more quietly than the 98 De Ville and has some nice updated features. I have however been watching the Chrysler 300C with interest. The price and the power are quite something. I owned a 97 Chrysler LHS before my 98 De Ville. Have some of you here driven the 300C? If so how does the car compare in power, quietness and in general with De Ville? I generally hold my cars about three years which means I would be in the market to replace my present car in the spring of 2007. By that time we will have a much better idea of how the 300C has worked in reliability, pricing and performance.
#1639 of 2635 2005 Deville

I went to the auto show here in Boston last week and the only Cadillac not there was the Deville. I did look at the CTS and STS, but the one I want to buy is the Deville. I bet this time next year, there will be great deals on left over 05's, as the 06 will be the redesigned version. I wonder if they will price it like the STS starting at 40k.

Indeed a year old or used current year Deville is a bargain. It will take a year or so for the older body style used prices to drop even further.
BREM.....I have been setting my cruise control very CAREFULLY ! On my last outing it only varied 1 mph or so............
Nobody on the Cadillac forums has posted any cruise problems like ours with their cars......
I think it us not the car !!!!!!!!!!!....lol !

will remain a V8. So I expect the base price to move higher, perhaps $55,000. A lot depends on whether it becomes a DTS, or if the base model is still what is now the Deville. Cadillac may be moving the D-series up market.
