"I love the smooth, quiet ride of this big Cadillac; it is a wonderful car for long road trips. The 8 way adjustable, heated, front leather seats make driving the car all day long a very comfortable experience. My only complaint with this car, as with all General Motors vehicles, has to do with lack of mechanical reliability of certain components. The alternator went out twice under warranty. The torque lockout solenoid, which is buried inside the automatic transmission, failed at around 100,000 miles. Fortunately, the transmission works fine with this failure in Cadillacs, but gas mileage goes down about 1 mpg. The oil pan developed a bad leak at around 100,000 miles, which required removal of the engine to repair! The A/C compressor exploded at 146,000 miles, so I am having it fixed, and I've decided that I need to sell the car."

"This car has a new rebuilt engine.This car has tinted windows. The stereo system is Pioneer with 4 6x9 speakers, and a 12 inch Woofer kicker speaker in the trunk. There are also Tweeter speakers on the top of the front doors. There is a built in Bluetooth phone system in the stereo with remote control. The car has a great alarm system. Leather seats are in excellent condition with no tears. The paint job is great."
