    Re: Honda Cadillac challenge

    I'm not saying it surprised me and I'm certainly not saying it makes the Honda any more desirable... but when I saw that, the first thing I thought of was this thread. Take from it what you will.

    It is interesting that you could buy a well-optioned CTS or 3 series for the amount of money they claim you save driving a Civic...

    Most of that's from depreciation, which you don't get as much on a cheap econobox. Insurance and fuel costs wouldn't be more than $100-300/year depending on how much you drive.

    That is most likely true, but not all luxury cars depreciate like the DeVille and you are definately going to spend more in gas for that Northstar as opposed to the Honda's little 4.

After five years, however, the BMW is expected to hold onto nearly 50% of its value, or $21,602.50, while the Cadillac should be worth just 29% or $12,191. In other words, it costs a consumer some $8,000 more to drive the Caddy than the Beemer.

    One cause for the DeVille's massive depreciation is what dealers sell them for. Have you ever seen one go for MSRP? I know I have never heard of anyone paying full price for one.

This means that the factory gives up that much in potential profit through rebates, dealer cash, or lease or interest rate subsidies. And buyers usually get additional discounts from the dealer.

    By reviving this I hope the shyte doesn't get out of hand again and I was hoping it would die out slowly even though I agree with you Caddy Fan.

    Thats funny,

    cost of my 94 eldo with 68k was $4750

    cost of a 94 civic with 68k is about $3800

    One time savings of a whopping $950

    Ave MPG with 94 eldo is 26 mpg

    Ave MPG with 94 civic is 36 mpg

    Total yearly savings of $400 calc at 20k miles a year

    Having comfort, power, and smile driving eldo = PRICELESS!!!

    Those were some nice bull$h!t numbers. what are they doing adding the cost of the car in there, of course the cadillac is going to cost more, but not 9,000.00 / year unles you're comparing the cost of an XLR to a 2 door civiv

    Re: Honda Cadillac challenge

    A more fitting comparison woulde be acura and cadillac. We actually went to test drive acuras, because of the better economy. Anyway we drove a new tl type r (before the new ones came out) 3.2 260hp. That thing didn't have an ounce of torque, it screamed like a raped goat at wot but accelerated slowly. I can imagine what a civic drives like after driving this "sports" sedan. Now the rl was a lot better, felt much stronger at low rpms, but got out of breath very quickly. Good for city driving, but would sux on the highway. After that we just decided to stick with the v8s. Just shows that theres no replacement for displacement.

    I agree, I really dont think theres a good comparison when It comes to comfort either. No Acura or any foreign car have I ever driven can compare to a Caddilac. When I say comfort Im talking ride comfort not the inspectors gadgets.

    I have a 91 DeVille and when I drive a spankin new Ack, Id doesnt cushin my tush, like the old lack does.
