Got the car as a gift from my parents, so mind you, you don't look a free car in the mouth. For a year and a half, it was reliable as an anvil. Went about its daily routine quietly and stately. Excellent highway vehicle and without air-conditioning on at a constant 65 miles per hour, the car got 27 mpg consistently. Comfortable seats, lots of leg room. Northstar V- 8 was the strong, silent type and I got used to it consuming about a quart of oil every 1000 miles; pretty much all northstars do the same. Then 2 weeks ago, all hell broke loose. Had to replace the entire air-conditioning system and alternator went 5 days apart, ouch! Traded it for a Honda. RIP Caddy!
