Inherited this vehicle from my in-laws and have spent the last few months getting in working order.
Oil leaks that are cost-prohibitive to repair along with occasional over-heating (despite flushing of cooling system).
Also, only about 10-12 MPG in city despite several fuel system treatments.
Finally, electronic fuel display that jumps up and down several gallons within minutes.

Great car, creme color, which is interesting, depending on lighting situation can appear white with tinge of pink, egg-shell, or light tan.
Beautiful car, although the front end could have been a little designed more distinctive, kind of reminds me of a chevy with a cadillac emblem.
Runs great, good acceleration and breaking, I like cluster guages, right in front of your eyes, no looking all over dash for emergency lignts, wonderful seating, posh; There's just something about a cadillac, it's hard to verbalize, but you know when you are in one, that special feeling you get, especially with these older models.
Very easy to drive and park.
Maintence is expensive.

has good power but driving mostly around suburban area I get around 12-13 mpg. I have 140k miles on it and have a traction control light on for no reason. Also, service transmission because of a bad sensor and its not worth the money to fix because the transmission would have to be dropped out. Otherwise, I love the car.
Northstar V8 is installed in base DeVille, along with a new transmission, Integrated Chassis Control System and road-sensing suspension. Concours gets 25 horsepower boost to 300, along with a higher final-drive ratio for quicker pickup and an improved continuously variable road-sensing suspension. Automatic windshield wipers and new variable-effort steering are standard on the Concours. Daytime running lights debut on both of these monsters.
