Great Car For A Grown Man — If you are a grown man and like driving a manmobile this is the car for you. There is no mistaking anything when you come around the corner in this Boss Hogg. Everyone loves it and offers to buy it from me everywhere I go. Old people, young people, they all love it. Easily can do 90 in this and passing much newer cars on the highway with ease. If you're a man, man up and get this car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Head Turner
Always starts up
Parts are super cheap

Cons: None

Great Car, If It's What You're Looking For. — This car is awesome to drive. Its comfortable, quiet, with an "at ease" kind of feel. Tons of leg room, even in the back. Mine hasn't had much engine trouble, but I keep it very well maintenance. This is a great car.

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

Pros: Mine has a V8, and it really gets up there in speed. Plus,  it has all those random litttle luxury things, like the "your lights are on/ your key is in" alarms, and interior lights you can turn on by pressing the door  button from the outside.

Cons: >Gas Milage isn't bad for a car that big, but it's still not great.  >The back seats aren't really comfortable with three people in them.

Lots Of Car With Lots Of Issues — I bought the car from the original owner with only 61K on it. Rather due to neglect or the harsh Cleveland winters, it was a basket case. The body and interior were o.k. but the car had horrific electrical problems. Both power seat motors, the wiper switch (twice) dash lights (twice) all four window motors and the climate control were fixed/replaced. The power antenna was stuck up so I left it. The 307 4BBL was a good motor but was underpowered (140 hp) for such a big car. The trans was strong and the car ran well once it got up to speed. Milage was 13-14 city and 20-22 highway. Steering was sloppy. Lots of room inside and the trunk was o.k. The car was a head -turner because of its distinctive Caddy styling and size. I actually sold for more than I paid.

Pros: Comfy ride and distinctive Cadillac look

Cons: Major electrical problems and not enough power

87 Caddillac Brougham — I love it, it handles extremely well for a car its size, the acceleration is good, the car is in overall good shape and i got it for about 3 grand. The car has a ton of potential as far as customization goes, the interior is very roomy and comfortable and although the gas mileage is far from perfect its definately worth the extra cost

Pros: Beautiful build, handles suprisingly well, great interior

Cons: Gas Mileage

Too many engine problems. Not a typical Cadillac. More like Mercury Comet.
