I'm afraid that the quality of the recording is not brilliant - it was
originally taped on a VHS which has been played many, many times. However,
I could not see another copy of this film on Youtube, so I have uploaded it
1998-2004 Cadillac Seville: Issues and Recommendations
The purpose of this video is to inform people on what to look out for when
shopping for a Cadillac Seville. This only applies to the 5th Generation

Zero to 60 Run--4.6 Cadillac Northstar V8 vs. 4.9 OHV V8
Zero to 60 comparison between my new 2001 Cadillac Seville SLS with a 4.6
Northstar V8 and the 1991 Cadillac Sedan de Ville with a 4.9 that I've
owned since 2005. The Northstar in the Seville is faster, especially at the top end, but the
good old 4.9 in the DeVille holds its own--especially for an 18-year-old
car with 257,000 miles on it.
Judging from the time codes in the video, the Seville did it in 7 second
flat; the DeVille is just over 9 seconds.
Interestingly, both cars shift from 1st to 2nd at 45 MPH, and both hold 2nd
gear all the way up to ~80 MPH. Without a tach in the DeVille, I have no
idea how high it was revving, but it probably went close to redline.
The noise you hear besides the engine revving in the Seville is raindrops
on the windshield. I had the camera on a tripod held down between my legs
in the Seville; in the DeVille, it's just handheld, so it's shakier.
Both runs done on Stapleton Rd. just south of Monmouth/Independence, Oregon
