Better have deep pockets or skills

1996 Cadillac DeVille 4dr Sedan
Bought my first and highly sought after Caddy. Almost half below market value but with an AC problem. $120 got me a small part and fill, AC works fine. Love to drive this beauty around and have fallen in love with the Northstar. Ive also won me a fair share of races, lol. But problems started occuring. Engine overheating (Was lucky enough to have friend fix), Serpentine belt (lost control of steering) $80, and just the other day the car would'nt start despite a full charged battery. Did I mention the car is now accelerating funny, transmission? So, If you are skilled enough to do your own work you are going to love this car. If you're going to considering buying, be sure to check history.
Up to 27-28 mpg highway. Bot quite Pruis but good for a guzzler. Handling The power of the Northstar Outside design, althogh most people refer to it as a boat, the car isn't exactly an eye sore like an Aztec or Scion. Comfort. Great for long drives. Safe engine mode
