The late Cadillac Fleetwood is the finest highway cruiser ever built. We've taken it on numerous long trips of 500 miles or more and it's always smooth & quiet. The sound system, while not a Bose system as in other Cadillacs it quite powerful. Its rear seat room is unsuprassed. The front leg room is not quite as good, as other large FWD cars, like the Buick Park Avenue. It's solidly built and can last many years if taken care of. The fact that its RWD makes it easy to do some maintenance / repairs on myself. It is an impressive looking vehicle with its size and ample bright metal trim. This was the model for the Presidential limo from 1995-2000.
Very strong passing power thanks to LT1 engine. Comfortable leather seats with decent side support. Lots of storage in the armrests and map pockets. A powerful climate control system and nice audio system. This car is smooth and quiet. It can tow up to 7,000 lbs, has dual airbags, ABS, passive security all as standard equipment.
The digital dash is terrible. It has an innaccurate fuel gauge, it tells you that you have more fuel than you actually have. It has poor gas mileage, but it is still better than SUVs. It can be hard to park if you are not good at it. There is no dual zone air conditioning.
