1996 Cadillac Seville

The Cadillac Seville caught its breath in 1996 after going through some serious changes the previous few years.  The only new aspects to the midsize sedan revolved around minor adjustments to the dashboard and interior.  The 1996 Seville comes in 2 trims: the SLS and the sportier STS.  Both trims use a 4.6 L V8 engine with 4 speed automatic transmission.  The SLS packs 275 horses under its hood while the STS packs 300 hp.
Other features have stayed the same from previous years.  Gas consumption runs from 17 mpg in the city to 26 mpg on the highway.  The '96 Seville seats 5 and has 4 doors.  Standard features include air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, and ABS brakes.  Sunroof comes optional on both trims.  Leather seats come standard on the STS.  
Overall, it appears that Seville owners have a choice to make.  The car performs and handles as well as it always has.  However, drivers report oil leakage and mechanical problems after a few years of use.  Make sure to do your homework before you buy a used Seville.
