    1996 Cadillac Eldorado Review
    Overall the Eldorado I owned had some minor issues but not enough to cause to much change in the overall feel or the experience. Incredibly comfortable the Cadi was the most luxurious vehicle Ive owned, my first four vehicles were of the same year and the only one that came close at the time was my Cutlass but thats a different story. The Eldorado was comfortable and strong but with an automatic tranny the northstar wasnt really free to spread her wings. There was a lot of talk about the shortcomings of the hefty and over-complicated V8 but I personally enjoyed the vehicle and was never really given any guff.

    Back Seats Ranked 2006 Ford Mustang worse.
    "The vehicle is a lot larger interior wise than the mustang and therefore had the capability to spend a little time on the passengers instead of focusing mostly on the driver and engine."
    Would Buy Ranked 2006 Ford Mustang better.
    "Honestly being the two polar cars that they are their both coupes, and if taken car of are both very attractive. I would take the Mustang over the Eldorado simply based on the fact that the construction of the Mustang is light-years simpler than the Eldorado. That being said, the Eldorado is luxury based vs the Mustangs performance based construction which to me spells reliability. The Mustang wins for being a sturdy, fun, and reliable rider even if the comfort takes a hit to make it so."
