Hi Everyone,
I just joined because I am very seriously considering buying a 94-00 STS. I was hoping to gain some insight as to what to look for, what to avoid etc.etc. I've been in and under cars for most of my life as a hobby. I hope I'll have something to contribute to the forum as well. Thanks!

:welcome: I'd go for the '00 if you can afford one. There's lots of information on how to pick a used car here. Maintenance is the key.

Welcome! :LittleB: You will find tons of info here... (well not here as in the Lounge, we are just crazy here but the other sections are full of useful tips and info).

:welcome: :bouncy: :yup: To the Forum. We just hang out here at the lounge and BS a bit. There are numerous sub-forums here and even an STS. The black '00 STS is sharp if you can swing it. I had an '01 Eldorado w/ NorthStar. A very nice Cadillac. You'll find the NortStar engine not the easiest to work on though.

The biggest thing to look for when buying a N* powered vehicle is the headgaskets. The coolant has to be changed in a N* at regular intervals or the headgaskets go, which is like $4000 to fix. Some of the Eldo / Seville guys can tell you far more than I can, but welcome to the forums! Glad to have you!

Welcome aboard! Lots of great info, and lots of just plain funnies. It's all good. Easy to become addicted, though...

Enjoy your car hunt.
