I purchased a 98 Deville D'elegance with 62k from an older gentleman. This car was almost perfect, did all maintenance, coolant flush, trans filter fluid, plugs wires, brakes, and rebuilt front end with new shocks, tie rod ends and ball joints.
This car is power and smooth with many options standard that many new cars do not have. After replacing the shocks the car is nice to drive but its no sports car.
This is just a cruiser that can give a beat down to kids with Honda's trying to pass you up. I live in Seattle so nothing but hills, MPG is 16 no matter what I do, but if I travel on the freeway it gets 26mpg with tires infalted to 38 pounds.
Silky smooth Northstar V8, auto everything (lights, wipers), memory/heated seats, stock sound systems sounds amazing and keyless entry.
Cruise controls are outdated, the steering column and turning signal is the same type used in 70's cars. Its not easy to speed up or slow down unless you use your pedals and reset.
No power steering wheels, and I do not like front wheels drive, torq steer on the freeway is terrible if you floor it to pass someone, be careful in the rain!
