    Big — I like the fact that it's 16 years old but looks like 5, I also like the fact that she averages 21 MPG. I don't like the electrical issues I keep having. She has great acceleration, but huge turning radius.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Back seats are big enough that my kids can be buckled in but have trouble "touching" each other.

    Cons: driver's window intermittantly wont roll up, and driver's seat wont go down in front below the knees.

    I Just Hope I Can Buy Another One In Thirty Years As A Restored Antique! — I have owned Cadillacs since 1964 and will probably die driving one to someone elses funeral. I don't think there is a better bargain on the market than a five year old Caddy with 50,000 miles on it. Obviously, there are going to be lots of people who think I am a jerk for buying what they think is a "gas-guzzler" but the up front cost of a really nice used Caddy is hard to balance against a new hybrid for overall life-cost economy. My guess is that I pay less per mile and ride in luxury and safety.

    Pros: Comfort! This model is soooo comfortable and easy to drive.  The front wheel driving characteristics are so much better than rear.  I bought one with 60k miles on it three years old and wore that one out after putting on 100k, then bought one with 75k foir a lot less money and wore it out.  I have recently bought one in as good condition as the first for less than $3000 and it is the best bargain of my life!

    Cons: Some components could be easier to work on, but .... so what!

    Do Not Buy One Used — The reason they are so cheap is they have a design flaw. The flaw is that the head gaskets leak, you cannot replace them as the studs that hold the head together warp if you remove the head, so there is literally nothing you can do other than replace the motor. This is an issue on ALL NORTHSTAR engines.. Google Northstar overheating before you buy one.. I had purchased this with 67k miles to use as a car in which i worked out of. I paid 4k for it. (2008) the Northstar is powerful, smooth, quiet, and when you are cruising along, no traffic a nice place to be.. But in any traffic they have a terrible cooling system and will overheat. the fans kick on too late to cool the motor, which causes the head gaskets to leak. I attempted to fix this by using a triple core aluminum dragster radiator, and two 15K CFM fans, hooked to a toggle switch, but the thermostat does not recycle the fluid until the computer kicks the thermostat to do so, and you still overheat. Aside from the motor, it has the typical GM electrical issues.. Typical issues with power windows not working.. The alarm due to the key, is a piece of software in the stock radio, you cannot remote it without causing it to always go off.. Annoyance, i cut the lead wires to fix that.. It still would click, but it didn't effect anything. Anyway.. Got stuck in traffic on the cross bronx expressway in NY. Car overheated.. Caught fire Went back later that night after the FDNY put it out.. replaced the plug wires, and lower as well as upper coolant hoses.. started back up. Traded for cash for clunkers.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It's big, comfortable, and had available bench seating, it was good on gas, and floated down the most chewed up of roads. It makes you feel safe.

    Cons: It caught fire, and GM knows of the issue but refuses to fix it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: smooth

    Going In Style. — not every mechanic works on Northstar engine. the gas pump can be intimidating when on a budget. can get you there 75mph with little gas consumption and a pleasure to drive or ride. Has that Cadillac look of elegance that always turns heads. It is a Cadillac in every sense.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: comfort ride and drive for those who enjoy travel in style. dual zone climate control, heated seats. adjustable lumbar and 6-way split bench front .

    Cons: uses premium gas only. best performance limited to free way. routine maintenance can be pricey.

    Comfortable, Affordable, And Luxurious — I love the way this car performance, build quality and appearance. It's a little expensive to drive because it's a v-8 but I can usually get about 20-25 mpg. It is incredibly fun to drive, if you like big old man cars, which I do! But I also only paid $1600 for this car, which is an amazing deal.

    Pros: It's big white and beautiful, like me. ;), I think it performs more like a sports car than a full size, but it's comfortable too.

    Cons: Expensive to fix, not great gas mileage, you may be mistaken for a 90 year old.

    Great Car, I'd Buy Another In A Heart Beat. — This is quite possibly the best car I've ever owned. It is amazingly quick. I was merging to I-80 the other day and not paying attention and I hit 87 without trying. I have not had to repair anything yet. Its only got 70xxx on it and was previously owned by a 92 year old lady. :) Great looking car. Gets good gas mileage, much better than my Tahoe anyways. The only problems I have with it. Why does it not have heated seats? What Cadillac doesn't have heated seats? I mean seriously. And the sound system, not impressive for a luxury car. Doesn't even have a CD player. Ridiculous, it makes me feel ancient since it only has a tape player. But overall, I love getting into it in the morning and commuting to school and work. Great car, very happy with my purchase. I've seen 30mpg average at times.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Power, Ride quality, Trunk Space, Interior Room, Engine.

    Cons: NO HEATED SEATS!!! Not a high quality audio system.

    Fun To Drive And Relax In — It's a good looking car, heated seats and a leather interior. It runs alright, gets you from point a to point b.It needs some interior work done. Just installed a new stereo and new tires. Is a nice car to drive around in.

    Pros: Leather interior, heated seats, drives smooth, tinted windows

    Cons: Leaks coolant from time to time, gas mileage is low, costs an arm and leg to fill up tank

    Surpisingly Quick — Its got a lot of room and a lot of power, and not just power seats either. This thing has balls! It won't catch a mustang, but for a two ton luxosaur its pretty impressive. Accelaration at highway speed it instantaneous and the ride is butter smooth. You can also fit like 8 bodies in the trunk if need be. The only thing to watch with the Caddies is repair costs...they'll getcha! However, right now these aare a real bargain, $3000 will put you ina nice one.

    Pros: performance and ammenities

    Cons: repair costs
