Pros: "Fast, reliable, not too difficult to work on COMFY"
Cons: "Lack of gauges, dull steering, body roll."
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"Having owned 66 cars (this is my 67th) models as old as 1950 and as new as 2001, this is the finest car I have ever owned. Although I prefer the rack and pinion steering of my previous 99 Aurora (which this Fleetwood replaced) or my formerly owned 01 Eldorado ETC, but having rear wheel drive back in my stable is worth the compromise.
This baby sits solid and heavy cruising down the freeway at 80 mph, while getting 26mpg. I have the Brougham model with 2:93 gears. My second favorite car ever, is her sister a 94 Roadmaster Limited Sedan. (now I call my small car, heh, heh)
I know who this car was marketed to, but still, it would be nice to have a full gauge compliment. I like to know the RPM, coolant temp and oil pressure! I like the "statement" this car makes. It basically is a rebel in this silly world full of Prius, Scion, KIA, Mini-Coopers, and silly mice driving cars in commercials. As cool as a Mustang GT, Camaro SS, or Dodge Challenger, or even a Corvette can be, this car is cool in granny's clothing and gives a sense of dignity, rather than panic or desperation!"
