I am listing a 2004 Cadillac DeVille Base (VIN: 1G6KD54Y14U258054) for sale with 123,900 + miles (it changes daily so hurry up!). This was owned by a family friend, went to my brother and then went to me. So, this has been “in the family” since new. I originally bought this car in the fall of 2012 and have only put 10,500 miles since then and has been stored in my garage every December 1st until April/May since I have owned it. The inside is in GREAT condition and the outside is, too except: both front doors on the very bottom has some surface rust. Also, the rear driver side back wheel well has rust (pic 11) and the passenger side is just barely starting, too (pic 12). Also, the rear driver’s side wheels finish is pretty rough.
I have stored this every winter since I’ve owned this. Getting this ready to sell, I re-installed the tires and found that all 4 sensors were bad. Instead of replacing all 4 and passing the cost on to you (at least $170.00), I had new air valves (not sensors) installed on all 4 wheels. Many people will not be happy with this, but this is the choice I made. You can always buy these sensors yourself and have them installed. After the price for the parts, installing these is not very expensive (cheap) and does not take long (1-2 hours).
I replaced the rear brake lines (up towards the front of the car), bled the master cylinder and all 4 brake lines, added 2 rear brake bleeder screws and installed new front brake pads. All fluids are good. I replaced and greased the driver and passenger side OUTER tie rod ends (last pic). I put them back in the original position as the old ones so the alignment will be pretty good but you will still probably want to get this aligned.
You will need to replace the front struts and at some point replace the rear shocks but if you want to drive it as is you can. These are NOT the air shocks that cost a fortune to replace. Pricing BOTH the front struts and back shocks online from Rock Auto for Monroe 171685 Front Struts/Spring Assembly (2@$92.79 each) and Monroe MA822 Rear Shocks ($54.99 per set) comes to $240.57 (plus shipping). This is the base model and I posted the sticker parts code so you can check on these yourself.
Other issues: the outside temp sensor (cheap and easy to replace) reads 140 degrees, 1 key/fob, the CD player stopped (the radio and all speakers + sub works great), the “service air bag” text is displayed (I am betting on this being the front air bag sensor needing replaced which I never did–$65 I think).
I get asked a lot about leaks because the Northstar engines are known to have this issue. I have had pea size drips here and there. I have NEVER had a puddle, a pool or had to top off my oil because it leaked out all over the place. I have only added oil when I do a complete oil/filter change (I do them myself, full synthetic). That’s it. I have included a close-up photo (it looks worse than it is) of the garage floor where this is always stored (see pic). Keep in mind, this is where the car has been stored from:
Dec. 1 2012 to April/May 2013
Dec. 1 2013 to April/May 2014
Dec. 1 2014 to April/May 2015
Dec. 1 2015 to April/May 2016
Dec. 1 2016 to April/May 2017
Dec. 1 2017 to Present
Keep those above dates in mind when you look at the pic. I know this may be a deal-breaker for some, but I have to mention ALL flaws so you know what you’re getting.
The rear plastic panel that accesses the trunk does not close (when the rear center arm rest is down it opens). I have the pieces (see the pic of the bag) but have not put it back together. There are a few small cracks at the bottom of the windshield (see pic). If you want to replace this a new windshield from Safelite Auto is $185.00 installed. Also, you’ll notice (or not) that the center wheel caps are not installed. These pics were taken when the car was being cleaned and detailed and were not installed. Rest assured, I have all 4 caps and they are now installed.
This is a GREAT car, the engine runs and sounds great. Since I’ve taken it out again, I forgot just how smooth it rides (even with old shocks/struts). It is not perfect and needs a little work but you will be very happy. Buy This Now!
