"I've had my 98 Deville since April 2005. It was a low mileage (58K) little old lady owned car. I'd never owned a Caddy.
This is a REAL Cadillac!! It's quiet as a ghost, rides like a cloud, gets over 25 mpg on the highway, and does it at 75 mph.
I've put 45,000 miles on mine, and nothing has gone wrong. No oil use between changes. The Northstar engine makes this car absolutely fly low.
Someday, my Caddy will wear out. The paint is still perfect, the seats are holding up the best, but still, everything wears out. When it does, I'm getting another one. The last one they made of this style, complete with tail fins, was 1999. I like it better than the 2000-2006 style Cadillacs.
These cars cost over 40,000 dollars ten years ago. You can buy an excellent condition example for a fraction of that, now, but you can't buy mine. It's not for sale."
"I have owned my 1997Cadillac Concours for 4 years. It has only 108,000 miles on it. In that time I have had to replace the: 1. Air ride system ( Front and Rear Struts) 2. Suspension air compressor 3. Water pump 4. Radiator 5 Radiator expansion tank ( it leaked) 6. Alternator and finally 7. one of the front calipers. This is not to mention the routine expected items such as tires, battery, oil, and brakes. It was certainly not what I expected from a namebrand with such a storied history. The engine in the car is the Northstar engine and it has leaked oil from the first day I owned it, not bad but enough so that I had to check the oil frequently. I would suggest caution in purchasing the Cadillac brand."
"This is a very very nice car! If you shop around you can pick one up very inexpensive. Extremely comfy on the inside!! ALOT of car for a little price!! Features Beautiful leather, power outlet for both rear passengers, AC for rear seat, Luxurious carpeting and posh Leather dash, Automatic trunk suction (just bareley close the trunk, the car will take it from there!), Power everything!!! AC super cold and all digital. tells instant mpg as you are driving!!! Nice gold tinted driverside mirror to prevent spots, Antiglare rearview mirror, seats 6 plus!!, made of super high quality materials!, leather pouches all over for mad storage!, ginormous trunk!, premium sound system, RELIABLE! Ive owned this car for 5 years now and have had no major problems. Picked it up 5 years ago for 2400 bucks with 85k on it. This is my 2nd caddy and will be driving it for years to come! Horrible resale value...... which makes it a good value for the consumer who wants a reliable, safe extremely comfortable and stylish car!! Gas milage isn't great, but not as bad as everyone thinks it is. I get 17.9 in ALL city , no highway driving. With all the money you saved on buying this car the little extra on gas is nothing! 1994 came with remote lock/ unlock/ trunk. Gold keys! Beautiful chrome wheels! Floats down the road!!"
"I bought my 1997 with a northstar (first mistake) after 6 months head gasket blew. A waste of money if you ask me. Still fuming over it. High price to pay for 6 months of luxury! I did love the luxury though while it did last."
