Review of the 2001 Cadillac Eldorado

  • 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.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Powerfully smooth V8, distinctive greenhouse.

  • Cons

    Inspector Gadget underpinnings, bulky size.

  • What's New for 2001

    Only three minor changes grace the Eldorado for 2001: Sequoia is added for an exterior color, Dark Gray is added for the interior and the Bose sound system with mini disc player goes away.

Last of its breed

Vehicle: 2001 Cadillac Eldorado ETC 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

My '01 Eldorado ETC has been a dream. It is absolutely perfect in every way. I have had ZERO maintenance or reliability issues with it. It only needs oil and gas. It's smooth, quiet, comfortable, fast, safe, and a joy to drive. The Eldorado is the pinnacle of the 2-door luxury sport coupes as far as I'm concerned. The interior is comfortable, quiet, roomy (for it's style), and well built. The engine is a marvel of technology and delivers amazing power and yet very good gas mileage.

Vehicle: 2001 Cadillac Eldorado ETC 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I love everything about this car except for its reliability. Mine died with only 1,400 miles on it and needed a tow off the interstate. I should have known then. Over its life, it has had four dead batteries, over $2,000 so far in electrical repairs, and latest is over 7 days in the shop with 24 indicators in the computer. The GM tech center is taking bets on what the problem is. Many parts have been replaced, so far including the computer itself. This is the last Cadillac I will ever own (first one was an '84, remember those engines that blew up?). I have never owned a "foreign" car, but this one has done it. For the first time in 50 years, I am considering a nice Japanese vehicle.




Awesome vehicle

Vehicle: 2001 Cadillac Eldorado ETC 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

This car is truly awesome. The ride and feel are fantastic. I've owned two other Eldorados (90 and 95) and this one outperforms the others, hands down. After owning one, I knew I had to have another one. It will definately get out of its way. It is very peppy and a true joy to drive. I love my car.




If you are considering one...buy

Vehicle: 2001 Cadillac Eldorado ETC 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I have owned more than 35 cars from Suzuki's to Porsches, Mercedes-Benzes, Audis etc. I did a lot of research on my recent purchase of a 2001 Cadillac Eldorado ETC before buying it. I have been very happy with a the couple of Cadillacs that I have owned in the past. I have only owned this car a short time, but I have to say that it is one awesome coupe. It combines beauty, luxury, sport, power, reliability, and decent gas mileage all in one...I can't think of any other cars out there that can do this. If you are considering one, I recommend find an excellent shape low mileage one and buy it quick and start enjoying!




Etc road king

Vehicle: 2001 Cadillac Eldorado ETC 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I traded my late model corvette for this fine used automobile, as I desired something more comfortable and better designed for everyday driving, yet retaining a destinctive and sporty look. I am most impressed! The northstar engine is very quick and responsive, the ride excellent and the stylish look is an eye-catcher. Took my first roadtrip and achieved 25mpg...excellent. Although three years old, the ETC is very tight...no rattles.




2001 etc

I have been driving a new ETC every 3 uears since the Northstar came out. Its a great car. You get full size, decent handling, comfort and great performance.
