hello mr ackweck, this is so strange, the tire company put two brand brand new tires (michelin energy mxv4) on my car today and as i was driving back home on a completely smooth highway i noticed the vibration coming and going! i am going to contact the local dealer and let him know i still have the problem.soon i will take the car to the next dealer and give them a shot at it. but today i decided to go test drive a 2005 deville from a dealer 30 miles away. this was a certified cadillac with a 6 year,100000 mile warranty.it had 30000 miles on it. we got out on the road and i heard a major clunking noise from under the hood. i quickly turned the car around and parked it. i was shocked to think they would put such a label on this car. i knew my business was done there so i left.but something magical happened, i suddenly felt a whole lot better about my car! so i will keep you posted if i find anything out.

Best of luck to you, rkmetz! I think I've pretty much resigned myself to getting rid of my DeVille. I'm just trying to decide whether to sell it myself or call my salesman and tell him to get me another car... something other than a Cadillac. The dealership where I bought mine also has an import division that sells Mercedes and Volvos, so those might be an option. Again, good luck to you and thank you for sharing your experience.
#31 of 35 chrome wheels rusting

I have a 2001 Deville and the rear driver tire kept getting low. I took it in to have the tires checked and the mechanic said that the tire was fine and the problem was due to rusting of the chrome wheel. He removed the rust and applied a sealant and stated that this should take care of the problem. Has anyone ever heard of that before?

Yep, 1997 Deville.
While paying for the tire/wheel work, I asked the owner is they see many of these problems.
He said "I haven't seen your car, but is it a Cadillac?"
I said 'yes'.
He said they are the worse for this happening. The chrome on the bead isn't good, it will litterly flake off all around the tire. I had taken the tire off and put soap on it, and it was leaking all around the inside of the bead.

Okay so i just got my deville and one hubcap isn't on it and i couldn't figure out why till i realized its missing the little part that holds the hubcap onto the axle and i was wondering if anyone knows what this part is called or have a spare one laying around.
Thanks in advance

I have a 2004 Cadillac deville that was vibrating and shaking at highway speeds, I had the tires rebalanced, wheel bearings put in, and it ended up being the front strut mounts worn out, had to replace the mounts and struts and get an alignment.
