    LT1 Fleetwood Brougham vs. Northstar Seville STS

    I'm car shopping, slowly. Should I get a 94-96 FWB or a 93-97 Northstar Seville? My other cars include a 1990 Q45 and a 1990 Maxima. I take a lot of road trips, so I'd like to rack up a lot of miles without expensive maintenance and repair issues.

    Which is comfier, which is quieter, which is easier to drive, and which is quicker from 60-100?

    Thanks

    Comfort and Quiet goes to the LT1 Fleetwood.

    Speed and agility goes to the Northstar STS (although a LT1 Fleetwood can be made to handle well and be fairly quick).

    Reliability and cheap maintenance goes to the Fleetwood (shares parts with the Caprice, Roadmaster, Impala SS)
    For example:
    My brother just replaced the electronic struts in his 2003 DTS for around $3,000 installed at the dealership.

    I just put a set of Impala SS springs and Bilstein shocks on my 1996 Fleetwood for $500 installed at a local speed shop.

    Yeah you can't get much cheaper to maintain or more reliable than a Fleetwood Brougham. Sure it's old school, but that's half the beauty behind it!

    For the 0-100, I found some times:

    1996 SLS (275hp N*) 0-100: 17.6 seconds
    1994 Fleetwood (2.56:1 rear axle) 0-100: 22.6 seconds
    and just for shits and giggles, a 1995 Roadmaster with the 2.56:1 gears will do 0-100 in 19.1 seconds.

    Well, I think I know now what my next car will be. I was set on a Seville, but today I passed a green FWB with chrome wheels and limo tint. I nearly drove into the guy as I was staring. When passing, its like you see the back of the car, and an hour later you finally see the front. I love it!

    Re: LT1 Fleetwood Brougham vs. Northstar Seville STS

    B-Roam (all in one shot like Broom)

    Jesda.. Really.. Do yourself a favor and get the Brougham.. It's far more comfortable than the Seville.. Far more quiet.. Far more reliable.. It's very unique.. I really miss my Brougham.. And if you want performance, you can make it happen. I really think you'll be impressed with the car...

    Just browse eBay and you will find one you like. That is where I bought mine in December 2005. Sable Black with Grey leather, Black top, and moonroof with 74,000 original miles for $8,100 (stock and unmolested).

    Re: LT1 Fleetwood Brougham vs. Northstar Seville STS

    I always pronounced it Broam. Like the sound the engine makes under WOT


    For as much as I like my deVille. I really miss my Roadmaster, especially the LT1's power. The 4.9 and LT1 are comparable around town but on the freeway its a whole different story.

    Jesda, have you ever driven a LT1 Fleetwood Brougham?

    You guys can call it Boars Head Ham all you want. It's "Brougham" with a silent "a" or "BroHum"...
