"We've owned two 1996 Fleetwoods for 13 years, since they were new. They're the best automobiles we've ever owned, and we've had 6 Cadillacs and 2 Lincoln Towncars. Comfortable - will easily transport 6 adults, plush leather seating, great amenities. Reliable - have never left us stranded. Fast - the Corvette LT1 350 engine and drive train are wonderful. Though we never do this, the car will reach 60 mph in 8 seconds - pretty good for a 4,500 lb. car. Great gas mileage - routinely 16 to 18 mpg in town, 24 to 25 mpg on the road. On our most recent road trip we drove just under the posted speed limits, and got 28.3 mpg - with 3 adults and a trunk full of luggage. Attractive - no rust on either vehicle so far and we live in the rust belt. Elegant styling - we get frequent unsolicited purchase offers for them. Huge trunk - multiple golf bags or luggage for 6 people. Very quiet interior - comfortable seating positions, great sound system. Repair - oil changes every 2K miles and whatever is needed, plus a few minor expected items. One has 55K miles, the other 83K miles. Replacement parts may become an issue, but not so far. Driveability - precise, intuitive handling, great in ice and snow, a dream to drive.
Don't need new cars now, but would definitely buy another. Unfortunately, nothing like the 1996 Cadillac Fleetwood is manufactured today."
