1985 Cadillac Seville Review
Not Built For Tall Individuals, But Performs Splendidly On The Road. — Not a bad car... found it on craigslist and purchased it from a guy who had it sitting in a dry, sun-parched yard to be chewed up and spit out by the elements. Everything that is to be expected to be wrong with such a car was wrong with this one. There was no coolant in the system (which I discovered almost too late... 95 degree weather does not do an engine good on zero coolant), the brake fluid reservoir cap doesn't fit, and the trunk lock is busted. Otherwise, it runs like a dream, handles like it's floating on air, and apart from a few minor electrical defects, it is a dream machine with a lot of potential. I am lucky to have found it for $500 with low miles.
Primary Use: Family transportation
Pros: Great handling, purrs like a kitten, bright digital information panels
Cons: Large hood, sprung hood spring, hubcaps require a special tool to remove (don't lose it!!), side battery posts, everything under the hood is buried under unnecessary crap, trunk lock is busted, and it needs an a/c overhaul and seat control panel switch replaced.
