This is my 2nd Cadillac and I gotta tell you it's been a fantastic car so far. Paid $5k for an '04 with 106k miles. Talk about a steal. Car has a wonderful, smooth ride and bumps no longer exist. Plenty of room for friends or to just stretch out. Northstar V8 has plenty of power and gets decent fuel economy on the highway. Stereo is great and has plenty of power. Tons of rear seat and trunk space as well... Wow! Styling is conservative yet clean and elegant. Love the LED taillights. Handling... well there isn't so much of that LOL. It's not a Town Car but you can certainly tell you are driving big car. Really enjoying this car so far.
Love the Northstar V8 engine. GM finally fixed the headgasket problem in '04 so I shouldn't have to worry about that. The seats are really comfortable and have plenty of adjustments. The styling is classy Cadillac though with a modern twist. Interior styling is ergonomic and there is tons of storage throughout. Fuel economy is decent for car with large V8 engine.
Car is hard to maneuver because of FWD platform. window regulators are terrible design and tend to break often. Interior design is nice but quality isn't great. Vibrations above 70MPH are common and require time consuming road force balance along with other possible issues. Front motor mounts break often and are poor design.
