1993 takes regular, 1994 takes premium, and 1995 takes regular...

What sets the 93 and 94 apart besides the engine, fuel type, and the way nicer steering wheel?

I just found a 1994 Fleetwood Brougham with over 100k miles on it, for $4450.00, but it doesnt have the white wall tires, fine with me. This one is probably 10-15 miles from my house according to Autotrader, which is awesome. It's a private seller too! Which should mean no dealer fee, and he can transfer the tag and save another $100.00 bucks right there, Im assuming it comes with the tag to transfer. Apparently the transmission was just rebuilt on it too, which is good its rebuilt, but bad to think something was wrong with it in the first place. But, I dont know if its had the tune up, I read its about $1000.00 bucks at a GM dealer to have the LT-1 tuned up. I've talked to the gentleman selling the car, who was very friendly, it must have been at least a 10 minute call talking about the car.

And, its never been wrecked according to him, he is not the origional owner buts KNOWS the origional owner. :yup: Who knows, but im glad I didnt buy that 1993. If I did, I would have been saying, "Why is it I wait months to buy the car, finally buy a car, then only to find a better deal a week or two later :bonkers: ."

See, if you wait, something better will show up :)

don't worry about gas.. the whole $3/tank you'll save isn't enough to worry about... if you are going to worry about premium or regular, or even millage, then you really shoudln't own the Fleetwood....

...did he tow anything with it? many reasons why the tranny could have went... but at 100k with a new tranny... it should last you another 150k before anything major goes wrong...

For $1,000 I'll do a full tune up on the car... and a full detailing as well... hell, I'll even fill the tank!

Why would you bring the car to the dealer for a tuneup? plugs/wires, cap + rotor, fluid and filter change etc... I don't see why any of that woudl be difficult to go.... and $1k?

$1000 for a damn tune up? :eek: Just buy plugs and wires online and do it yourself, it's not hard at all.

I USE 93 OCTANE IN MY '93. BETTER STARTS IN THE WINTER AND BETTER PERFORMANCE. ALSO, THE 93 OCTANE HAS MORE DETERGENT IN IT TO KEEP INJECTORS CLEAN.

16, KEEP LOOKING AROUND. NO WAY $4500 FOR A 100000 MILE CADILLAC AND REBUILT TRANS. I WOULD PASS ON THAT. I AM VERY PICKY WITH USED CARS. THEY MUST BE LIKE NEW FOR ME TO HAND OVER MY MOOLAH.

THE BEST WAY TO FIND A GOOD USED CAR IS WITH PATIENCE, ME BOY.
YOU HAVE TO BE CONTINUALLY LOOKING FOR THE RIGHT CAR. :rolleyes2

Maybe I should start putting Premium in my 307.... I've been filling it up with regular.

The rebuilt trans is not a good sign. Any used american car over 100k is a disaster waiting to happen.

Premium fuel isnt a problem, only .15 cents more per gallon, or $3.00 more a tank full. I thought it was odd how they switched from regular/premium/regular.

I read about the $1000.00 tune up on ebaymotors.com from someone selling a Fleetwood with the LT1, I am no mechanic, but something may have been mentioned about coils...

The cheapest the '93 and up Fleetwood I have found was for $3950.00, which I test drove. Of course Im not going to give him $4450.00 for the '94 Fleetwood w/ rebuilt tranny, Im thinking about offering $3,500.00 or $3,800.00 for it. It has the manuals and most if not all the maintenance records for it. But, every car has it's problems and defects, while other people dont.

There is the other '93 I found with 82k miles for $4950.00, but I called up and made an offer for around $4,200.00 and he said that was acceptable.

Carguy offer him the 3500. see what he says. A rebuilt tranny is not so bad mine was done at 300,000. Can you test drive the car? See if you could run a car fax on it... Good luck!!!
