1981 Cadillac Eldorado Review
Tons of luxury features, tufted leather seats, firemist paint job
Horsepower is low compared to the modern caddys, it is a larger car that lacks tight handling
Personal Luxury Vehicle — The 1981 Eldorado is unique in that it came with a variable displacement engine otherwise known as the 8-6-4. This boosts the gas milage from 15 to 17 mpg on the highway which is pretty good for this era of car. Some other notable features include auto headlight dimming, climate control, auto pull-down trunk, and temperature gauge. Not to mention power doors, seats, and antenna. This car will beat a modern day volkswagon on features.

I Love My 1998 Cadillac Etc - When It Works!
My transmission overheats on the highway. On VERY hot days (over 95 degrees), my engine overheats on hilly sections of the highway. I have to stay at 65 MPH and it is fine. If I push it over 90, it ov... Read More
