Review

Very good car, purchased new.just sold

appeal, secure ride. did have to
replace alternator at 70,000 miles.
On 3 occassions after driving in
summer with A/C going , car unexpectly
cut of while slowing down vehicle .
First occurance in 98, and twice this

problem. In spite of this I
Personally like this car better than
the recently purchased 2004 Model.

Review

A really nice car even though it does
not leave you feeling warm and fuzzy
with the "service engine soon" light
on, all of the time. I would not buy
this car new but as a used vehicle, not
bad. Tremendous highway vehicle. Great
around town for a big car. Headlight
problems after car wash ( what about
the rain?). I like it but this car
needs kid glove treatment to last. Not
a car to throw into corners at 100 mph.
Actually mine says "fuel cutoff" at 112
mph. Oh well, so much for the open
highway. I would buy another one.


Best Features

Steering wheel controls. Leather.


Worst Features

Tighter suspension, CD (to play not a bank CD to pay repairs), stronger seat design, higher top speed.

Review

Cadillac has a long way to go to be
considered in the same class as
European automobiles. The soft ride
and mediocre handling, although
improved, do not bode well for Cadillac
to seriously compete with other luxury
marques. Dealers do not seem very
helpful, which is unfortunate, since
I've spent quite a bit of time there.


Best Features

Excellent features and standard equipment for the money.


Worst Features

Overall build quality must be upgraded, and parts/service prices lowered somewhat as resale value is terrible.
