For Sale: 2002 Cadillac Seville in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

2002 Cadillac Seville SLS

The name of "Cadillac's first small car" was selected over a revival of LaSalle or the GM design staff's preference, LaScala, primarily because, as noted by GM Marketing Director Gordon Horsburgh, "It had no negatives". The initial suggestion was "Leland" in honor of one of the make's founders but it was rejected because most buyers wouldn't understand the reference and Henry Leland had also founded rival Lincoln. Hundreds of suggestions were considered after extensive research, LaSalle was the top pick with St. Moritz a distant second, trailed further by Seville. A troubled past, (Lasalle), and difficult pronunciation, (St.Moritz), led to selection of the Seville nameplate.

Seville is the name of a Spanish province and its capital, renowned for its history and treasures of art and architecture. Cadillac had first used the nameplate for a two-door hardtop version of the 1956 Eldorado. 1960 was the last model year for the Eldorado Seville, returning in 1967 under a different name. Seen in our Hallowed Halls of Classic Auto Mall we have a 2002 Seville SLS that has been used by our consignor, the second owner, as a show car. Faithfully maintained and wIth all the trappings associated with a Caddy, conveniences abound and luxury is paramount in the materials that go into this car. It's time to experience life the way the other half live.

Exterior
Very nice laser straight steel panels come together to form the pointed square design exterior of this luxury automobile. This design shows hints of things to come with the diamond edge styling just around the corner and we can see Cadillac has aerodynamics in mind as slipstream panels and angles are incorporated into the design. These are all bathed in Crimson Pearl paint which shows very nicely but does have some rust bubbling through the paint on both rear quarter panels as well as scrapes and chip offs in various areas. This beautiful body design is highlighted by a mid beltline thin trim rail which doubles as a rub guard. A clean egg crate style grille is up front and is flanked on either side by aerodynamic rectangular headlights which are crystal clear. Dual exhaust tips, in oval chrome exhaust tips hang below the bumper and wrap around tail lights that stretch across the entire rear panel. Chrome is kept to a minimum and only used for the traditional Cadillac crest, the grille surround and highlighting around the side glass. 16 inch multi-spoke chrome wheels are on all 4 corners and are wrapped in deeply treaded 235/60R16 radials from the 32nd week of 2021 . A shout out to the very clean trunk with its gray felted liner, cargo net, and pass-through rear seat.

Interior
Bone would be your contrasting interior color, and it is in the form of luxurious leather covered wide dual front bucket seats with a padded center armrest topped console in between, and a couch-like rear bench. Both driver and passenger seats are power, and wide side bolsters tend to grab you when you sit down. Moving up the console we see walnut burl surrounding the leather topped automatic shifter as well as rocker switches for the front seat heaters. Continuing up to the cascading design dash we see digital climate controls along with the factory AM/FM/Cassette and CD player. Just above, a wide strip of walnut burl graces the dash and accentuates the Bone padding nicely. In front of the driver is a black faced cluster with the full gamut of analog gauges and a LCD odometer. A thick rimmed leather wrapped wheel fronts the dash and all is excellent. Lightly soiled carpeted mats protect the well cared for Bone carpeting that floods the floors. A clean tight cloth headliner frames the roof above. Not to be forgotten are the Shale leather and plastic door panels with a touch more of burl as well as power window, lock, and mirror controls.

Drivetrain
Within a well preserved and slightly patina engine bay is the up to date on scheduled maintenance 4.6 Liter Northstar V8 power plant. This mill is capable of making 275hp with the help of EFI and sends power to the front tires is a 4T80E 4-speed automatic with a 3.11 final drive axle.

Undercarriage
Slipping underneath, we notice a solid frame, floor pans and rockers environment with just a touch of some surface rust. Floor pans still have some of the factory overspray of the exterior red on them. Since the car is front wheel drive, there is a lack of a drive shaft making its way rearward. Independent Macpherson strut suspension for the front, and the rear is an independent coil spring design. Power disc brakes are all around with new rear brakes and single to dual mufflered and outlet exhaust is seen to complete our tour below.

Drive-Ability
Being a well kept car one would expect this car to start right up, and it did. We would also expect everything to work, and it did save for the passenger's mirror, which has a new motor but is not connected. It ran beautifully, provided a smooth ride, and had good acceleration and cruising. Only one thing it did not do, and that is disappoint on the luxury end and I even got my giggles in when my crack decoder and partner in crime got stuck due to the passengers front seat beltbeing slow to release and retract.

Nicely cared for but still showing some age and a plethora of conveniences and we are skating with the haves, and if I power the windows closed, and crank up the sound system, it's very easy to forget about the have nots.
