    Great — I love that the car was spacious and smooth riding on the highway. It got me everywhere I wanted to or to go. I really hate that I didn't have the funds to repair and restore it. I don't actually have any dislike because if I could get it fix I would.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good car just don't have the capabilities to get it restored and running.

    Cons: need repairs

    1988 Cadillac DeVilleReview

    Caddi — I still have this car, When I say this is a solid car, it is solid, it hit a pole @30mph and all the was replaced was a bumper fender and radiator, if that were a honda the car would be done.. This car looks great with aftermarket rims, The Ride is unbelieveable, rides like you're on air due to the factory air ride in the back. It gets up and goes with the 4.5 liter 300ci V8. It dosen't handle the greatest, but it's ment to cruise.

    Pros: The ride, the crome, the power everything, the on board scan tool, the self closing trunk, the look around light blinker, the big comfy leather seats, the wood grain

    Cons: head liner is prone to unglue and sag, bad gas mileage.

    A Luxuary Sedan From The 80's That Doesn't Suck. — Performance--In the snow you would think the car was built on Krypton. It is unstoppable, even in a blizzard. In a straight-line it handles great. Its a Caddy; don't ask it to turn. Build Quality--Not a whole lot breaks down even after 115,000 mi. If something lets go you don't need a NASA accreditation to fix it Appearance--inside the car is cushy and feels great. The outside was designed by a man with a ruler. Cost of ownership--gas is pricey, drive slow and it gets 21mpg. Fun Factor--PIMP. Also snow drifts are fun

    Pros: POWER, Ride comfort, low mantainance, Handles better than SUVs in the snow...really.

    Cons: Heating system you can't control fully and is stupid. It handles better at High Tide. It's a rolling brick.

    1988 Cadillac Deville — I absolutely love my Cadillac to death! GM is a tradition in my family and I can obviously see why. The power of this wonderful luxury coupe is absolutely outrageous! The interior is a beautiful white leather. This car was inherited from my grandmother but don't let is fool you, it has the power under the hood.

    Pros: everything

    Cons: 80's look
