This (was) a pretty great car. I sold mine 2 years ago because it had 175k miles on it. It still ran but was near the end of its life. Even at the end, this car cruised along surface streets and highways a like, in a smooth, comfortable manner. I had problems with the thermostat and subsequent overheating problems. But other than that, there were never any serious problems. The V-8 could really get up and go, especially considering the weight of the car, and even got 25+ mpg on the highway. Very impressive. Handling past 90mph became worrisome as the car began to sway. But this car was never meant for out running cops, it was meant for cruising in comfort, and it did that very well.
Bose sound system was a big plus, it sounded great until I finally blew a speaker out 13 years later. Seats comfortable, plenty of leg room, even in the back. Automatic truck was great. I loved startling people walking by in the parking lot by popping it open from a distance. Good highway mpg
Needed stronger breaks. The gas pedal only needed a feather touch to get it going, but the brakes required a full strength PUSH of the brake pedal to the floor to halt this beast at 40mph+. I wish I had chosen different rims, the stock rims were tedious to clean due to the many rivets. Overall, good
My Seville is so nice and a pleasure to
drive. I am surprised the value of it is
so low. It would be impossible to find
a replacement without going to a Cadillac
DeVille, costing $40,000. I like my
car so much I wont get a new one. My wife
and I drive it on trips and it is
exceptionally comfortable, 27-28 mpg,
and looks good. The car only has 93,000
miles so I am prepared to proudly drive
it for many more years.
Spacious, comfortable interior. The
sound is great, too. As I said, it looks
good, too. And, its good to have a big
V8 motor to level out the mountains and
to pull onto the interstates quickly.
The ONLY thing this beautiful machine
needs is some cup holders. However, I
put one in the console. Aside from that,
Its the ULTIMATE automobile.
I've owned this car for 7 1/2 years.
It had 7k when we bought it and just
turned over 70k. For the most part,
it's been reliable. I love the power
and the ride, but I've had plenty of
minor problems that annoy me and add up
over time. Ignition problems, power
window & antenna problems, CD player
problems, an oil leak... Repairs for
these items ranged from $80-400 each
making none of them too major, but they
add up and diminish faith in GM &
Cadillac. Now I have an A/C problem
with a quote of $1100 to repair. That
may be the end of this relationship.
