We bought this car when it was
basically 10 years old with 100,000
miles on it. It still had its factory
brakes on both ends, which we've since
replaced, though only the front brakes
were giving that high-pitched squeak
warning. The only other problems we've
encountered have been minor- pieces of
plastic on the interior are broken,
such as the garage door opener slot and
most of the dashboard AC vents.
Otherwise, we've replaced the catalytic
converter (also still the factory part).
Leather seats are very comfortable (I
drive 'racer-style'), the car is simply
beautiful to look at (in my opinion),
and though it maneuvers like a boat (a
Cadillac characteristic), it's quite
fun to drive and accelerates much
faster than you'd expect a car of its
size to do.
Higher quality plastic parts, heh, and
I wish mine had come with an in-dash CD
player... the previous owner's to blame
for that, though, not Cadillac.
