Used 1996 Cadillac Eldorado Consumer Reviews
I bought this car when I was 15 to go to local car shows with and it turned out to be the best thing I have ever bought in my life. The performance is amazing, the Northstar is one of the best engines ever, the ride is the smoothest with the air suspension, its a very quiet interior, awesome quality built, and the sound of the engine is amazing. Not to mention the drop dead good looks! I get so many compliments about the car on the street and in car shows I cant keep track. 62000kms, dark cherry metallic with matching interior, gold plated emblems with gold pinstripe and vogue rims and white walls. Only had to get a tune up since I owned it ($500). Not for someone who isnt financially stable
THIS CAR IS A FANTASTIC PERFORMER! IT IS NOT FOR THE MILD MANNERED DRIVER. PASSING GEAR WILL REQUIRE THAT YOU REALLY HOLD ONTO THE STEERING WHEEL UNTIL YOU "LET UP". THE ENGINE SEEMS TO CONSUME A QUART IN BETWEEN 3OOO MILE CHANGES. I SAY SEEMS BECAUSE I KEEP THE ENGINE OIL & ALL FLUIDS "TOPPED OFF". I AM SO SORRY GM HAS STOPPED BUILDING ELDORADO COUPES, SO I AM KEEPING THIS BROUGHAM! A FAN
I bought this car used, fully optioned, with a cabriolet roof and chrome on the top of the front and left fenders. It is Crimson Pearl with a tan interior and added extra Zebranno wood. It looks very distictive. My family are snow birds, it is what you need when going from Canada to Florida each year. In the three years of owning this car the brakes and battery are all I needed to replace. I had lent it to my 83 year old mom. I haven't seen her or my car for awhile.
Its been a great car just wish I had bought the 4 door Seville since it is tough for people to access the back seat.
These car is extremely fun to drive albeit the 300hp ETC tends to "nosetail" at full push. Get it with Bose system and the ride only gets better. It lumbers in evasive manuevers, but the sheer "push you back in your seat" will impress. This car depreciates so bad, it's a great buy in any used condition. Reliability?? Too much fun to think about the fact this car has 3 fuseboxes.
