Seville was definitely THE car for my
94 year old grandfather when he bought
it 9 years before he passed on at 103.
This car is a bargain. In fact this car
is a sleeper. Buy it for a song and
sing all the way to the bank. And, it
also holds its own at the country club
and fancy restaurants. Very dignified.
But otherwise, a big step up from
buying a new XYZ for much more money.
The "mature" drivers put only a very
few gentle miles on these babies.
This car has a decent record for repair
incidence, has a luxurious ride, is
surprisingly good on gas, and has more
than enough zip in the FWD V8 to hold
its own on the freeways. For winter
use, I fitted Michelin Arctic Alpin
snows and it trucks far better than
those spin-out SUV's.
Downsides? Well the brakes aren't the
strongest. Some trim items needed
replacement and, not unusual, the
cruise control stopped.
