The best of 3 SEL's we have owned over the last 20 years. Repairs have been regular oil and filter changes , brakes, and one problem window over the last four years. Our mechanic says ignore the power steering pump leak and live with it. Fuel mileage is the best we have had. 15 around town and 20 to 22 on longer trips. We run regular fuel but we don't hot rod it. I have always purchased around 100K and run them to 200K plus then basically give them away. Pay extra for good tires. It is worth it in ride and handling. Look for one that is really clean and cared for. It is worth the search. Have fun and enjoy it.
Ride and predictable handling. Tight turning radius for a big car.
These cars drive like a cloud on the highway great for long cruises very comfortable almost like sitting in an easy chair with full position controls. Ample power with the 560 engine and great handling for a car this size, very quiet and smooth ride probably better than the new ones made in North America
Multi function power seats for long trips. You can move positions for comfort when sitting for long periods of time. You need to distribute weight around a bit every now and then. Smooth ride even at high speeds. Handles well for large car
Does need cup holders which you can get after market
This car was given to me when I got my license a few months ago. It doesn't dent, and it would survive any collisions. I'm at 84k miles and I've had a lot of problems, and it costs an arm and a leg to repair. The A/C compressor is broken and the dealer wants $2k for it. I feel really safe in it, but I get an awful 10 mpg and it's extremely difficult to park and maneuver. It takes a lot of strength to turn the wheel. This car isn't for short people - the hood is gigantic.
The powerful V8 engine. It's fast. ABS, SRS and hydropneumatic level control coming standard is new for '91.
Keyless entry. For as much as the car was worth when it came out it should have a glove compartment and gloveholders. I have to drive friends around a lot, and they complain about the backseat being extremely bouncy but they like that it reclines and has heaters.
