Dad bought our "91, new, traded in an excellent 82 Caprice that was great also. The vehicle NEVER gave any problems whatsoever Price was some $18k or so, still they command about $5,000 for a nice one on Autotrader, so Edmunds, get your pricing correct..

I've only had the car for a week thus far, built like a rock and can take the miles it's got on it and act like brand new.

One of my favorite cars!

Vehicle: 1991 Chevrolet Caprice 4dr Wagon

Bought my Caprice wagon with 50k miles and after five years of ownership have had only a few minor problems. It's a very reliable car. Good power even from the base 5.0 V8 engine. Ride quality from this large rear drive car is pillow soft! I was surprised with the car's handling in winter snowstorms. Despite the rear drive setup, I never ended up stuck at the side of the road! The car's large size and rounded shape always gets attention from onlookers. Kids love the rear facing third seat! Cargo room with the second and third row seats folded is akin to an enclosed pickup truck! Long trips are very comfortable. A great car! Sad to see GM discontinue it.

Should i even swiitch?

I own a 1991 Caprice. I am about to own a 1996 Buick Roadmaster if I think it will be as good a car as the Caprice. My Caprice gets 31mpg. No lie!!! My only complaint about the Caprice is the driver's sea. It's not a power one on this model and because I am only 5'2 i have to use a seat cushion so I can see over the dash. I also don't find the seat comfortable on drives longer than 1/2 hour. I've been told the Buick will fix that. The car has 370,000km on it and the only thing not working is the A/C. The engine has never been opened up, burns no oil. I'm only considering switching because of the newer year and the power seats.




Smooth ride?

This has really been the best car i have ever owned.For the first 6 months i had absolutly no problems w/ it. But then stuff started to wear. I had the hole front steering done, then the intake manifold gasket,followed buy shocks and then the timing chain and valve cover gaskets..But since i did all the work myself instead of spending over $1250 i spent just under $350

Would you consider the first three years of the Chevy Caprice (1965-67) classic and collectible? I know that those first models were just basically glorified Impalas with more luxury equipment. But I ...

Compare that to the 1991 Caprice Classic it replaced with over 400k miles on it that still ran great but failed the NOX test by 12 points. I got 175k miles per tranny rebuild, about the same duration...

I'm thinking of buying a 1991 caprice with 305 TBI. It's only got 70,000 miles and it burns oil. What's the most likely source of this for these cars and how would I detect it ?...
