anyone know of any serious problems with the 92 brougham? Anything I should look/watch out for if i am considering buying a 92 brougham? I noticed many of them for sale are high mileage and would hate to buy myself a problem car.. thanks in advance!

post this in the brougham section....i dont think theres problems with it by the way...i had an 87.....the 92 will have a 305cin chevy, a motor thats been around for a while and there are alot of parts around for it...unless you get a d'elegance, then youll have a 350...cant go wrong with a 350!

From what I have heard, the 86-92 Broughams are some of the most reliable, trouble free, simple modern Cadillacs. The 305 that was standard in the '91 and '92 Broughams has a bit of an oil burning problem if I'm not mistaken, but thats with ALL TBI 305's though. The optional 350 is a great motor, I'd definetly look for one of those over a 305, and they we're not standard in the D'Elegances, nor was the 305 not available with the D'Elegance. You could get a regular Brougham with the standard 305 or the 350. Same with the D'Elegance.

The only problem I can think of is the digital dash not showing some info. But that's pretty rare, and it's not too expensive to fix.

Actually that's a pretty common problem and it's expensive to fix.

Really? I was over on the Oldsmobile forums site, asking about the digital dashes on the 91-96 Oldsmobile Ninety Eights and they say theres a company you ship your digital cluster to and they'll fix it for about $250 if I'm correct.

Yeah, it's been quoted at something like about $200 even for the Brougham dash IIRC.

That's not too bad. The biggest problem is driving the car without speedo/ gas guage!

great to hear.. i have narrowed my search to a 90 - 93 Brougham (preferred d'elegance).. one of the first things id do is put 18 inch vogues on it. anyone have a pic of the 90 - 93 brougham with 18 inch wheels (whether they are vogues or not)? I want to see what it looks like.

is this grill on all broughams between 90 - 93? Every once in awhile i see a brougham with a slightly different grill..


thanks :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship:

1993 was the new body style. Yes, Cadillac used the same grille on the '90-'92 models. But some times you see that E&G grille that looks like a Rolls Royce grille. That wasn't standard, that's aftermarket.

lol i did know that 93 it changed. just a typo.. neways thanks for the info.. so what changed between 90 91 and 92?

Theres some posts that already have information about the changes for the different years. Look through the old posts or just do a search and you'll find it. It keeps coming up again and again.
