1991 Cadillac Seville 4dr Sedan


Review

I have owned this Cadillac since new. It now has 191,000 miles and although I have had work done on it, it is all maintenance. This is one of 4 Cadillacs I have owned and it rides the best. At 20 years old it rides better than my 2012 Lexus.


Favorite Features

Looks and performance


Suggested Improvements

The Bose system could be better.

Review

I just bought a cherry 91 to replace my old one. The car is perfect in every way, but must not be neglected. It is beautiful, powerful, fast and nimble. Everything about it fits me.

Review

I bought this car to take the place of my 2002 STS because I got tired of the repairs. I must say this has been an impressive car. Other than not having the looks of the newer STS models, it runs very strong, rides like a dream, and has been fairly trouble free. I had to have the load level system fixed, but other than that, what a great car to travel in.


Favorite Features

The strong V8 engine, great ride, and auto load level suspension.


Suggested Improvements

Improve the build quality, this car has a lot of squeaks.

Review

I purchased this car used with 162,000 miles on it. The previous owner did an excellent job at maintaining it. For it's age, the car is great. The interior has held up well. The paint still shines and the car has incredible power. With the exception of the sentinel lighting, all of the power options still work. Overall, it is very well built, with no mechanical problems.


Favorite Features

The climate control is excellent, just set the temp and everything is handled automatically. The car handles well for its size/weight.


Suggested Improvements

The fuel economy is ony 16/17 mpg.

Review

My 1991 Cadillac Seville drives like an absolute beast and floats on the freeway. Its suspension is fun, but be careful with speed bumps.


Favorite Features

The raw power and the roar of the V8 is a never-ending joy


Suggested Improvements

It kind of handles like a tank, but you learn to work around it.

Review

I've had to make lots of repairs to my 1991 Cadillac Seville for a car with 125,000 miles. The fuel injectors went out @ 120,000 miles..$1,200. I replaced front strutswent at @ 11,0000 miles-$400. The exhaust went bad @ 122,000 miles - $250. The driver's side power window is not working - not repaired. The rear speakers blew @ 115,000 miles - not repaired. The rear air ride shocks are leaking - not repaired. The interior is cracking on door the panels and arm rest. It gets poor gas milage - 13.5 in city.


Favorite Features

Good power and torque from the motor when running properly. Good in snow with front wheel drive. Floats down the highway. Solid exterior body.


Suggested Improvements

Better gas milage. Parts are very expensive for this vehicle. don't buy this year of Cadillac used unless you have the bank accout to fix all the problems that come along with it.

1991 Cadillac Seville 4dr Sedan


Review

This is the only year that the small Seville had the 4.9 liter HO engine. It's a BMW killer -- which in an older Cadillac is a real surprise. It accelerates faster than the 3 series Beemers, and corners extremely agressively -- with its speed sensitive steering and shock rate, the car becomes a demon on the corners when pushed hard. Reliability has been outstanding, although fit and finish in these Cadillacs is only average -- not up to the standards of Lexus or Mercedes. Major components -- engine, transmission, AC -- keep on working. At 161k miles, it's still going strong.


Favorite Features

Engine. The 4.9 liter HO is an outstanding piece of engineering.


Suggested Improvements

Fit and finish aren't up to the standards of even Ford's products -- let alone the luxury Japanese or German cars -- and most of it can be seen as sloppy workmanship, not engineering or design. Shame on the UAW.
