1991 Cadillac Allante 2dr Convertible


Review

I picked up a red 91 Allante 1 month ago. Beautiful vehicle! Tranny slips but I knew that going in. Simply going thru the gears manually solves this issue. The exterior is stunning without being gaudy and the car still turns heads at stop signs/lights and parking lots. Driving it sparingly over the last few weeks, I find the car accelerates much better than expected but subsequently delivers less MPG than I had anticipated. I am loving this Allante!


Favorite Features

-Beautiful Italian coachwork! -Excellent acceleration for only 200 HP! -Air still blows ice cold! -Best of both worlds: Cruises like a large Caddy yet handles like a sportscar when pushed!

Review

I purchased this car in 1997. I have pampered it, and it has met all expectations. It is a very advanced car for its year. People in traffic want to know about it. People at the gas station want to know about it. The only flaw from the factory was a slight - you can only find it if you know where to look- imperfection in the paint. I am sure that rubbing compound will remove it. Other than that, it is a terrific automobile.


Favorite Features

Engine, sound system, ride.


Suggested Improvements

Top should be electric.

Review

I'd always loved the look of this car, and finally got a very well preserved one. That was the beginning of my trouble. It was a money pit, and I finally got rid of it at a horrible loss, after endless major repair bills. The mechanics were never able to get the suspension right, to my thinking, and too much time was spent in the shop (and far too much money). The ride was too harsh (ever after replacing all four computer controlled shocks w/ OEM parts at terrific expense). This pretty much scared me off Cadillac for life. My Vette rode better, and got better mileage.


Favorite Features

Beautiful bodywork, big engine.


Suggested Improvements

Fix the suspension, improve quality and mileage and performance.

Review

Series II (1990.5 -1992) Allantes are the best value in a semi-exotic in the market. The Recaro seats have firm support and are not appreciated by the heavy-bummed gold-chained set. The handling improves dramatically by the fitment of contemporary tires and better brake pads. Fit and finish are exemplary. Make sure you bleed the Teves brake system annually. No Northstar, but much better interior materials than the '93 version. This is a very under-rated car and reliable if mundane Cadillac drivetrain. Buy one for the price of a used Ford, and enjoy the ride. Upgrade of sound system is mandatory.


Favorite Features

Interior materials, finish; reliable if parochial drivetrain. SDD struts when working.


Suggested Improvements

Tires, brakes (need to be flushed annually including accumulator and pump), top is Euro-manual. Radio is terrible; Replacement SDD struts impossible to locate.
