Great Looks! — I love the looks and feel of the car. Spending for maintaining the car can get out of hand quickly. The interior has more room than anyone could need. Nothing quite like hitting the highway in what I call the beast.

Pros: Great ride.  Lot's of power.

Cons: Maintenance costs can be high. Poor mileage in the city.

Great Car — Nouthing bad to say about this car, it has been really reliable rides really smooth. I had to put a little money into the engine but now it drives like a brand new car and the only reason why im selling it is, is cause im looking to buy a newer model cadillac.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: A really great reliable car very comfortable and stylish does good on gas.

Cons: Alitnator was starting to go out but i just got a brand new one installed.

A Lot Of Car For The Money — As I stated in the description. This car has been REALLY good to me. I have had very few problems with her. Most of the miles are highway so I don't see why another 100,000 miles can't be put on her.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very reliable, but she does have 177,000 miles on her. Two good spare tires, new battery, semi new alternator, new from right light and casing. A TON of car for the money! Rides like a cloud. Great power when you need it.

Cons: Poor gas mileage in the city but pretty good on open road. Need at least mid grade gas. Paint dings on sides of doors but their not too bad. Small dent up on right front. gas door does not have the lock, driver window motor is starting to fail.

Smokey Grey Heartstopper — Clean, comfortable, smooth & worth every pennie, a pleasure to drive. With a Cassette Player, you don't have to worry about someone stealing your CD player or fancy stereo, and you can get tapes for $.49 each at the Goodwill. The Ginormous trunk holds 3 people, if you're into "The Sopranos" way of life!

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

Pros: Heated seats feel good when it's cold outside.

Cons: It could use a new rear bumper panel.  Some scratches/ tears from using the trailer hitch with a trailer across states.

Couldn't Be More Happier! — I like the gas mileage first, approx. 25 mpg on hwy. and 20-21 in city. It's comfortable, easy to handle, couldn't ask for better performance from the Northstar V-8 engine. It has bells and whistles on it I didn't think they would put on a car. Excellent investment. So far, in the 5 months I've owned this auto, I haven't found anything I dislike about it. I feel totally safe in this auto, with all the air bags in it, And the braking system is great. The car is absolutly beautiful. It has the leather interior that has been taken care of well since 1998.

Pros: Extremely beautiful car, Gas miser, great car to own overall.

Cons: Potential cost to repair it.

Unlike Newer Model Cadillacs, This Car Has The Classic Cadillac Look — You can't beat the ride on a long trip, decent gas mileage for its size. My car looks and feels like a Cadillac should. I have had this car for 2 years and no service problems whatsover. The V8 Northstar has awesome acceleration, good for getting out on the freeway in merging traffic.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great ride, pure luxury. Feels like floating on a cloud

Cons: Northstar has a history of head gasket problems after 100k

A Very Nice Car!!! — the ride is a little soft compared to what i am used to, monte carlos and firebirds. although the absence of road n oise is nice for a car this old. enigne preformance is exciting as you put the pedal to the floor and you feel yourself sinking in the seat. straight a ways are a must for this car, quick turns or slaloms not a good thing. this car is fun if you enjoy long rides!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: leather seats that are heated and power everything

Cons: looks dirty even when polished

Cadillacs Rule — i love this car, it has the 4.6 L northstar V8. it has a crapload of horsepower, as well as it gets great gas mileage. The caddy has seen the governor in action before. (For those of you that don't know, the governor is set at 150 mph!)

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: fast

Cons: it has very high miles
