1997 Cadillac Eldorado Coupe 2dr Coupe


Review

I bought this car new with only seven miles on it. Today it has 176,000 miles. I have replaced the AC compressor twice, one power steering pump, two alternators, and the head gaskets. The blown head gasket was my fault for trying to drive to next exit ignoring the warning system; a radiator hose had burst. The piston rings were replaced and the heads rebuilt when the dealer replaced the head gasket. It cost $4,000 to repair and the car had 116,000 miles. All in all the car has been reliable. The car doesn't smoke, but does drink a quart of oil every two weeks. If Cadillac came out with a design I liked, I would probably buy another. The Northstar engine is a marvel.


Best Features

The sound of the engine when you punch the gas.


Worst Features

Give it a softer suspension and a better sound system.

Review

I owned an ETC, after replacing the trany for 2500 dollars, and it leaked so bad I had to finally trade it in.The strange thing was it was crimson red and it was as fast as a rocket, like riding in a living room with rocket power. I lost money on that one and bought another crimson red Eldo today. Three years later, I missed it so bad. I hope this one doesnt leak like the last one but if it does, I guess oil is cheap. Drive safely.


Best Features

Northstar of course. Comfort next.


Worst Features

Fix the design problem in the half block seals of all northstars.

Review

My 1997 Cadillac Eldorado is elegant, classy, and attractive, but has terrible gas mileage.


Best Features

Hmmm.. it must be the interior comfortable seats, and the safety you feel when you ride in it.


Worst Features

Definetly install halogen lights, make sure the sunroof works, add a CD player.
