Pros

i love the gas mileage i get with this car (18 City & 25 Highway) Better than the 2012 Cadillac CTS (12 City & 18Hway)

Cons

The only thing i really hate about this vehicle is the electrical problem (Powered options, Antenna & etc. )

My Bottom Line Is : I Love This Car And The Only Way I'll Get Rid Of It... Is If I Total It! — More power than most people think, acceleration is a little slow at times, great gas mileage compared to newer vehicles (18 City & 25 Highway) Maintenance is cheaper than a monthly Cadillac car payment & More than plenty enough room for me and 5 other people

89 Caddy — Very smooth ride - like you're in your living room - very low maintenance - huge trunk - huge backseat - gas mileage around 15 - I love driving this car - also very quiet - one thing the driver door does squeak when you open and close - all leather interior is very plush

Pros

Fun, plenty of room, and it's a Cadillac!

Cons

Gas mileage is low and the price for gas will punch you in the stomach.

A Good Solid American Car! — The Deville accelerates well for the weight of the car. Braking is also impressive for the weight. The Deville will stick to the road while doing high speed cornering however it does have a high amount of body roll. Build quality is high! The car has over 200k on it and the engine is still strong! There was no metal shavings or foreign objects in the bottom of the oil pan. I have however changed many parts on it starter, alternator, axles, shocks etc. As far as maintenance goes the DeVille has not thrown any surprises my way. Gas mileage is around 14mpg but that is to be expected due to weight and age. This car is easy and fun to drive. Comfort is unequaled!

Cadillac Deville Sedan — Although my car is old and kind of worn out, but what can you do with an '89 Cadillac De Ville Sedan. It runs great, have had a few issues in the past. But those are no longer. I bought it for $500.00. I really dont like the color too much, because its a burgundy red. But its my ghetto car, and I look good driving it. Plus, it gets me from point A to point B.

Pros

I could make it bounce.

Cons

the hubs would rattle.

I Wish I Was Easyer On It Then I Was. — This car had alot of power and it needed brakes and also i had to put in a new power steering pump. This car would had to have many repairs just because of the way i drove it. The hubs would rattle and brakes would squeak. The would had to have been nice when it was new but not when i got it. Gas milegae was great about 19 miles to the gallon and easy maintenance. Over all this car was really fun to drive.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

I Rented One Of These And Drove It All The Way To Key West. It Was A Match Made In Heaven! — This little Caddy is best described by the old saying "dynamite comes in small packages" I aquired this little gem from a nice elderly lady strictly by word of mouth. I have been offered well over twice what I paid for her, but she is sticking with me.

Comfort And Luxury With Better Mileage Than I'm Getting In My Suv — Loved my car, especially after I painted it a beautiful metallic copper color. Great ride, great mileage, great everything.
