"We bought the '98 in 2001 with 30.000 miles on it and are up to 175,000 with no troubles and no complaints (except for the small windows for back-seat viewing.) We're looking at a 2000 with low mileage--we only wish they would have made this body style for a few more years! A good-looking and nice-riding car."
"This is one of the best cars I have ever owned. It's very comfortable. The body style is a real head turner, very eye catching. With the Northstar V8, I can smoke the tires at 40 mph. Very powerful engine. It's never given me any trouble at all. Handles very nice."
"Hard to believe my sweetheart has sunk so low in market value. It is the absolutely best and most comfortable car I have ever owned. And I have owned Hondas in my day (and they are good cars too). But my Cad is the best. Sure wish Cadillac still made the El Dorado. I figure to get to 200,000 miles before Cadillac makes something I like as well. A real champ in snow."
"95 ETC 300 horse this car is the best car I own by far. 22mpg (average) and still faster than my 67 impala ss 396 (dual quads,dual gate shifter,posi,400horse,5mpg).135,000 and still going strong ,I would recomend this car to anyone!!!"
"I have had 3 Eldorados. I just bought a honda accord ex-l> I had the honda for less than 1mo and am saleing it back to dealer. After having a high quality car, honda cant compare. The eldorado has high quality, comfort, style and performs on the road like a dream. Honda couldnt make it up driveway in 3in snow. Cadiliac had a donut placed due to a flat in front and drove through 1ft. of snow like a tank!
absolutely will never buy another car than cadilliac. EVER. once you go cadiliac you never go back"
"This car has a smooth ride and great acceleration,, 0-60 in 5.5 sec as apposed to the 7.1 sec figure reported on most sites, as well as awesome handling. It's roomy enough for my 6'3" frame. No rust- no leaks and everything accept the battery and brakes are original. never had any problems"
"I bought my 1992 ETC in '97 and have have nothing but trouble with it mechanically since. It runs hot getting up to 240 easily,the air conditioner is constantly needing work. No matter what is done, nothing seems to correct it's problems. Don't get me wrong, I love the look, ride and handling of that car but the headaches have no been worth it. Also the pass key has a tendacy to go on the fritz every 2 to 3 years requiring a new ignition and keys."
"If this caddy died tomorrow I'd have gotten my money's worth! One major repair. Head gasket replaced by warranty(Northstar motor)at 70,000. I get offers all the time.It's good in the snow and handles so smoothly. Prettiest car I've ever had. It's 13 yrs. old and still dependable. I own a 2005 C 300 too and the caddy ride is superior!!"
"I've owned this vehicle for eight years with no problems. It is a dependable and attractive automobile. Mileage with high test fuel has averaged over 20 mpg. I'm reluctant to trade the automobile because it continues to be a stylish and dependable source of transportation."
"After driving my wifes 2000 eldorado I had to have my own I fell inlove with a 2001 same color with a gold kit. She is a dream and we always get complements on them. The car wash always takes extra time to clean them. We are hooked and will alway have a Cadillac Eld."
"When Cadillac named their trim GT, they meant GT! Luxury, and a 300-hp Northstar BEAST! Mine has never broken down, and services are decently-priced. Whenever my crew goes to the mall, they ask to go in the Red Runnin' Rad Cad! I beat a Volvo 850 R in a race by a mile! THANK YOU CADDY! If you're in Laconia, and you see a red Caddy with roaring exhaust and murals on the side, please offer to race!"
"I bought the 98 eldo new.....what a fantastic car. I was hooked from the day I saw it. Love the ride, the V8 power and the sleek beauty. And she's still the greatest machine I have ever driven..... 9 years & still going strong...we are bonded together! Just had it totally tuned up for the 1st time at 104,000 and am getting 33-35 mpg..not even some of the new cars can speak that language. The only reason I gave "comfort" 4 stars is because the seat length is a little short for my long legs."
"Great Gas mileage.. 2000 model uses Regular Gas But I use Mid Grade .Have use regular with no problem
only major problem was Radiator leak
Wife does not like big cars but likes this one
Controls are easy to use
has 10 disk cd changer in trunk works great
On Star is out dated
Glad I got this car will have long tme"
"beats a Charger RT/1994 Mustang 5.0/ BMW Z3.
goes offroading in sugar sand for 6 hours no problem.
can take corners at high speeds no problem
Tops out at 155 mph
How do i know ive done it and at 53000 miles on my 1999 Cadillac El dorado not one thing has gone wrong. Im 18, reckless and have done everything besides covering it in gasoline to kill this car. If you think american quality is bad, u need to reconsider. like now."
"After 6 years I still don't know the top end of this car. I always stopped at 130MPH because that was the tire rating on my Riken Raptors! I will miss this baby. My new car is 12 years newer and still has less power than my Caddy!"
