I have just added up the number of views (4798) against the number of posts (12) in the BLS Help and Discussion forum. Wow! this means each message has on average been read 400 times :o !

Come on BLS owners lets share some info.

So, what info would I like to view/share/discuss/read about?

Well how about Fuel MPG (anyone use Fuelly.com?).

Tyres which are best and what they cost and best suppliers.

Servicing cost and best dealers.

BLS's you have seen on your travels.

Equivalent parts from other GM marques.

Pictures of members vehicles.

As a customer that purchased a 2001 Cadillac Deville, I would like help posted on how to find a place that will sell you parts for a Caddy for a decent price, it is outrageous what a customer has to pay just to keep good maitenace on their Caddy. There are so many issues that are caused by something small and once we have to make a visit to any repair place to get the issue resolve, here we go, attack on our pocket book. Just robbery. Thank God for help from the forum. I will never buy another Caddy. I think by this forum, other people agree.

Sara,

There are numerous places where you can get decent prices for parts.

one place is ROCKAUTO.COM

When you need something...post in the general forum of the DeVille forum

We will try to help... :)

PS... I love my Cadillac and I "WILL" be buying another one. :)

I have driven Cadillacs for for about 30 years...

Wow..... where are you buying your parts - the dealership parts counter?

Rockauto.com and gmotors.com sell GM parts at decent prices. My Cadillacs don't cost any more money to maintain than any other car I've owned.

Well, my point is that, everytime my Caddy needs something that I can't just buy a part for it, there are times I have to take it to get it serviced because there is a special wrench to extract a certain bolt or a certain gauge to read for a certain code. Dont get me wrong, if there wasn't so much technical stuff that makes a Caddy a Caddy I think it would be easier to maintain. For example, the air pump needs servicing, I have to take it in, because the Cadillac place has to reset something after whatever it needs is replaced. My left rear window, just dropped while I was driving. I have to take it in. I'm trying to say that it is the Labor of sevivicing a Cadillac that is the problem. Maybe the parts are not expensive, but, for the mechanic to reach the area where the part may need to be replaced makes it impossible to do it yourself. You know my Caddy is making a whirl whistling sound when turned on, for 1 minute or so, while the engine settles and nobody knows what it could be. Well, I could go to 1000 places automechanics to try to find what it is, before an honest one will really tell me what the problem is. I cant just go buy a part, it will maybe cost me $$$$$1000.

This may be extreme but if you just buy a 65 impala you can probably fix everything your self and surely wont need a computer or high dollar tech to figure out what is wrong! I don't think it will have an air pump either. :rolleyes: I wouldn't buy a mansion and not expect to pay a higher upkeep than a double wide. I wouldn't go to the homeowners association and complain about that higher upkeep either-(we the forum ) are not here to hear complaints, but to help and applaud our fellow caddy owners efforts and cars. If you went to a ford site they may be happy to hear complaints about caddy's
