I am about to buy this 91 Deville on auction in a few hours. Can anyone tell me what I can expect in terms of problems and disapointments. I used to drive a 97 Concours (so I am familiar with the N*) and I drive a Mark VIII now. Here are the specs:


1991 Sedan Deville
California Car
1 Owner
Black on Black (good cosmetic condition)
98,000 miles
4.9L V8

Is $2500 worth it? Or would you rather spend $4800 for a 94 Concours N*, three owners, white/beige leather 103,000miles? Thanks for the input.

Haha I tell you man you and I are one in the same. I just crashed my 91 cadillac deville to purchase a 97 caddy concours. I loved that car! it was my baby ran well and I had 180,000 miles on it. Now I am driving a 97 caddy concours. I am not happy with the problems I am experiencing with the car. It keeps reading to me on a code that it is the o2 heater sensor?? have you ever experienced this?? should I sell this car?? its really begining to piss me off! but yes I would purchase that 91 I loved mine and had few problems with it.

I have confidence in the 4.9 from how it feels to what I learn on this Forum. 26,000 miles, and just a faulty motherboard in the radio. That was the factories fault, so nothing really. I learned from others that you should be able to go 150,000 miles with few or NO problems, good luck. (plus the styling in very classy.)

I agree with Ralph!

Of course you do, as you should! ;) KC, are you going to get another 150,000 miles out of your 1991 Seville, or look at a new one? I see you in a black DTS.
