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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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
