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.
