1999 Cadillac Eldorado 2dr Coupe


Review

As older used cars go, this is an absolute nightmare! Everything about it is a fail. Alternator is near impossible to replace - a $500 repair. Brakes failing resulted in a $900 estimate. Nearly every little thing is a nightmare to replace, causing many hours of labor if you take it to a shop. And 3 hours at the shop, given all the right tools and experience translates into 8 or more hours should you tackle it yourself. My son got this 1999 last year at a (dishonest) dealer and had nothing but problems. Finally, with the $900 estimate for brake repairs, he sold it for $500 as is. It was a very nice looking piece of garbage. Ended up taking the $500 and buying an old rusty 99 Toyota Camry - a car 100 times more dependable, even with all its 250K miles on it.

Review

I recently bought a 99 El Dorado w/Northstar.
I love it so very much,but, I didnt do my homework, now it needs an alternator, and I hear it will often,
A new one is expensive! Can I get one with a heavier voltage regulator to avoid this problem?
If not, I'm afraid Ill have to sell my baby.

signed very unhappy.

Review

I loved this car very much, and it was a blast to drive. the problem is, before 60,000 miles it needed an engine, and a transmission 10k later. I babied this car, followed the owners manual maintenance religiously, yet it was issue after issue. replaced the engine, transmission, alternator 3 times, ECM twice, and shocks, all before 70,000 miles. Also, thank GOD I had an aftermarket warranty, because the engine cost over $10,000 to replace, and the transmission cost 4,000$.


Best Features

300 hp rivals most sports cars on the street!


Worst Features

Reliability, reliability, reliability!

Review

I have owned my Eldorado now for 5 1/2 years and had a few problems with it, however it has been an amazing car to drive. Fast, fun, and comfortable. I would buy another one in a heart beat. it now has 141,000 and runs like a top. I would suggest to put synthetic oil in it though.


Best Features

Speed, Leather, Heated seats for the cold winters in Minnesota!


Worst Features

Take care of the head gasket problem.
