BMW killer
By Toming on


1991 Cadillac Seville 4dr Sedan


This is the only year that the small Seville had the 4.9 liter HO engine. It's a
BMW killer -- which in an older Cadillac is a real surprise. It accelerates
faster than the 3 series Beemers, and corners extremely agressively -- with
its speed sensitive steering and shock rate, the car becomes a demon on
the corners when pushed hard. Reliability has been outstanding, although fit
and finish in these Cadillacs is only average -- not up to the standards of
Lexus or Mercedes. Major components -- engine, transmission, AC -- keep
on working. At 161k miles, it's still going strong.

Best Features

Engine. The 4.9 liter HO is an outstanding piece of engineering.

Worst Features

Fit and finish aren't up to the standards of even Ford's products -- let alone the luxury Japanese or German cars -- and most of it can be seen as sloppy workmanship, not engineering or design. Shame on the UAW.
