Big honking domestic luxury coupes are nearly extinct, this decade-old Eldorado being the last of the breed. But with a powerful V8 engine, front-wheel drive and lots of luxury goodies as standard equipment, fat cats with a penchant for Americana might find themselves smitten with the creased-and-folded Eldo.

I love the car from its northstar engine to its beautiful look. This car has impressed me as I have had a lot of sports cars and this has to be the smoothest ride out of all. People that have never rode in a Eldorado are just as impressed as I was my first ride, They are over taken by the smooth fast acceleration it has and so quiet it seems to be on a cloud.

I bought a 2001 ESC with 52,000 miles and have put 20,000 trouble-free miles on it in 16 months. It uses regular fuel and I get 28 mpg on the highway. With a strong tailwind, I get 30 to 34. Pretty incredible for a V-8. And lots of power, good brakes. I had a Troféo with 300,000 + miles and the ESC was the best substitute I could find. Interior styling is not as luxurious as the Oldsmobile. But the power and mpg make up for it. Since their is no other American luxury coupe and Chevrolet refuses to upgrade the Monte Carlo, I may buy another ESC or ETC and rotate the two until GM comes to their senses about what we want. Overweight gas guzzlers can't be our future.

Hands down the best car I have driven. It has a very smooth and refined ride as well as an elegant design. The car is not afraid to move, when you floor it be ready for what it does. The Eldorado is just as fast as a V8 Mustang or Camaro. That being said, in town milage is poor but if you use the cruise on the highway and keep it to 80, you can see as much as 25 to the gallon.

What a pleasant experience! From
purchase negotiation to present I've
have been impressed and pleased. The
ESC provides the legendary Cadillac
ride and sufficient horse for all types
of travel. I get 29 mpg on the road
and 24 mpg in town on regular fuel,
that is huge given the V8 and a/c.
This car packs alot of luxury combined
with performance in one car for a very
reasonable price tag.

It has been my dream to own the new
body style since 1990. What great lines
and who can beat Diamond White for
beauty. I drove this car back to
Washington after purchasing it in
Montana.I gave it the test run through
the canyons along I-90 at 90-100mph. It
layed down and rode like the wind. Too
bad they quit making the Eldorado. I
will probably always keep this car
since they are no longer being made.
Would only sell it if I could buy the
ETC in Diamond White. Any sellers out
