2000 Cadillac Eldorado ETC 2dr Coupe


Review

My husband insisted that I had to buy this model because of its sporty look. I wanted a 4 door in the worst way. The only reason I am replacing my ElDo is for 4 doors and room for a Rotweiller. I have loved this car, but hate lifting a sleeping grandchild out of the back seat car seat. It is a thrill to drive, so comfortable and very luxurious. I had problems with water leaking around my moonroof but I had a great service department and so my inconvience was minor. They totally replaced my carpet twice and finally cured the leak problem.


Favorite Features

Leather, handling, fast NorthStar engine


Suggested Improvements

Acura's intergrated totally hands free navigation - the best on the market. Keyless entry, cooling seats, XM radio

2000 Cadillac Eldorado ETC 2dr Coupe


Review

Bought used off lease. ETC Crims Pearl.How did I get so lucky? Drives like you would expect. First year aluminum roller rocker followers. The use of premium fuel is not required. A real plus with fuel getting ready to $4. Gas milage is great for the size and power. Under estimated by EPA. 22+ around town 28+ on the road. Transmission has to be one of the best. The shift is almost unnoticible. But best off all they tell you at GM to drive it like you stole it. The G force when you punch it will set you back in your set. The styling, being that GM tried to emulate the '67 (first year) I say they nailed it. Those classic lines are all over it. In short love the car, love to drive it


Favorite Features

Styling, handling, over all look a real head turner


Suggested Improvements

Blind spots. You will need to get oliptical mirror to past on the exsting mirror. Cost of parts once it comes out of warrenty. You can only get parts from GM. This is going to be pricy. Have yet to had to work on it. Lost of covers that need to take off.

2000 Cadillac Eldorado ESC 2dr Coupe


Review

We have had a 2000 Cadillac Eldorado ESC for almost five years now. It is one of the best cars I have ever owned. Gets 32 mpg on the hwy at 70 mph. No joke. Better than my Chrysler 300M with 6 cyl. Virtually no problems at all with the car. I think the seats could have had a little longer seat pad and the spare room between grill and fan could have been put in the back seat for more legroom, but having said that, the car has been great. Am looking to buy another Caddy for the wife and wish the Eldorado was still around. We will look at an STS or DeVille.


Favorite Features

MPG of over 20 around town and 32 on the highway at 70. Heated seats.


Suggested Improvements

Grage door opener should have been standard. Seat bottoms could be longer. Would have love a heads up display on this car.

2000 Cadillac Eldorado ESC 2dr Coupe


Review

The car I bought is a Coach Builders Limited convertible conversion, so it's a convertible. This means less interior lighting, and a SLIGHTLY smaller trunk, and of course wind noise, but it was a first class job, with an automatic hard boot that raises and lowers to cover the top. You get about 70% of the original trunk space regardless of the top position, nice wnen compared to the "no trunk space" problem of the popular folding hard top cars, and it seats five. The excellent Northstar system has phenomenal power and can actually run for 50 miles at 50 MPH with NO coolant. It has nearly every convienience feauer availabe from 2000, and rides very smooth and quiet (below about 70MPH).


Favorite Features

NorthStar Engine system, phenomenal power acceleration and passing power!, Memory Personalization system, auto day-nite mirrors. Convertible top with automatic hard boot, sharp Chrome wheels, Excellent climate ontrol system, beautiful crimson pearl paint, runs on regular gas!


Suggested Improvements

Better weather stripping on the convertible top would be nice. Difficult to enter or exit the rear seat with the top up. Wimpy non-Bose audio system (it was an option). Potential high cost of repairs, especially with the aftermarket convertible conversion.

2000 Cadillac Eldorado ESC 2dr Coupe


Review

The 1992-2002 Eldorados were fine cars, but they didn't sell well enough for GM. Too bad. The cars were VERY powerful and had the latest electronic advances, until around 2000 when GM had probably already decide to discontinue it. (Eldorado has older stabilitrak than Seville, etc). Being FWD, this car is has some torque steer, but its not too annoying. The Bose audio system is excellent, but most ESCs did not have it. The seating is very comfortable, but not as supportive in ESC trim. The driver info center is easy to use. The memory personalization is also easy to set up. It can take a 12 disk CD changer with no additional wiring. The optional OnStar is very useful.


Favorite Features

The NorthStar engine system is supurb. It can be driven 50 miles at 50 mph with no coolant without damaging the engine. This car has very powerful acceleration and very comfortable seating with memory that remembers the mirrors too. The Eldorado has nice looking body lines.


Suggested Improvements

The rear roof pillar is way too big. It impedes visibility. Also, GM left off foldaway mirrors, but had them on 1999 & up Sevilles. Bose audio should have been standard on both models. This extremely complex car might lead to big bucks for repairs in the future.
