1999 Cadillac Eldorado 2dr Coupe


Review

I always loved the design of the 1992- 2002 Caddy Eldorado, so I bought a clean 99. It ran well for about two years, and then the problems began. Interior things fell apart. The AC stopped working. The battery went low until it was dead - though it was only a few months old. The driver's seat self-adjusted randomly, even when the car was parked. When I started the car, the trunk and gas door popped open. Mechanics were baffled, and theorized a short in the electric system. The repair job was estimated at hundreds of dollars. Friends with Hondas, Nissans, and Toyotas say that their cars run for many years with no problems.


Best Features

Design - beautiful and exciting Engine - small V8, 32 valve


Worst Features

Improve computer(s) and electrical system. Improve dashboard/controls quality.

Review

Though most reviews for the Eldo are excellent, mines been a nightmare from day one. a month after I bought it the head gasket blew and it was cheaper to replace the engine than the gaskets. Every month its a new problem. window motor, climate control motor, door panel fell off, trunk latch broke, ect.ect. I can't wait to get rid of. I'm done with American cars now.


Best Features

It looks great in the driveway.


Worst Features

Sell GM to the Japanese.

Review

My 99 Eldorado was my 1st Cadillac but I had long admired the El's style. It was a lease car w 20K miles. I drove it daily until I got my new CTS last year. I like the CTS but I still love the Eldorado There's no comparison in the ride. I drive hilly, winding roads & the El never ceases to amaze me with it's easy & steady handling. I'm a female 5'2" & always feel in control of this car even though it has supreme power when needed. Of course, there have been repairs (it's about 140K now) but the engine still sounds as smooth as the day I bought it. I keep thinking I need to sell it but I can't seem to part with it. It's more reliable than most of my other old friends!


Best Features

Quiet but sturdy engine & roomy comfortable interior.


Worst Features

Plastic dashboard grill/vent warped in summer heat (but I'm in Texas!), interior door panels became loose over time.

Review

This car is a good value at the price requested. It is fully loaded and has been reasonable on gas considering its power and weight. The car runs smoothly and handles extremely well. It is the epitome of luxury and power. The car is clean inside and out and while it has 97K on it there are many miles left in this excellent car. Don't miss this opportunity of owning a Cadillac which is a premier car at a very affordable price.


Best Features

Handling, CD player responsiveness, traction and stability control and overall fun to drive.


Worst Features

The car is in good shape as is.

Review

I have had my Eldorado for nearly a year now. I cannot tell you how the black exterior coupled with the black interior turns heads. The power is always there. I love dusting off little import tuners...they always underestimate the power of American design! I love this car!


Best Features

The inerior comfort and styling


Worst Features

Put them back in production so I can buy a newer one!
