"This vechile was purchased with 72000 miles. I bought the vechile about 4yrs ago and since have put over $5000 of work into the car. My main problem is the alternator (which don't ever buy non cadillac parts) cause it caused my engine to through a cyclinder and I still ended up buying the cadillac alternator after the cheap one did $3000.00 worth of damage. I also have had problem with people putting noe enough oil in the car since it holds six quarts and had to replace my cooling system due to the wrong antifreeze eating all the hoses. The car now has 160000 miles on it and for the price I paid it has been an okay car to purchase. I would not buy one again though cause if something does break it is to expensive to fix."

"I bought this car in 2001. It was a 1998 only had 56k in miles. I have had no major repairs done to this car. I have to replace a valve 2 times since i bought the car. The valve is made of plastic and does crack other than regular maintance i have had the best car for the money i paid for it. The car has got the best power w/the turbo on it you can not get a better car thats as fast as the Caddy when you kick in the turbo and not even a sport car. I would tell anyone whom is looking for a family car and have the chance to get it to buy it they will not be disappointed they did. If GMC still made them i would trade mine in for a new one. I have had the car for 9 years and i hope i can get another 9 years out of it. I have everything in it that a towncar has in it but mine is and was alot cheaper and to me better looking"
