    1996 Cadillac Deville

    I'm currently looking at a 1996 Deville 100k miles for $4,000. Can anyone give me a personal review of this car. This is going to be the first car that i buy and i dont want this thing to be a lemon, of course i wouldnt expect it from a Caddy but i gotta make sure.

    Thanks, Mike

    Re: 1996 Cadillac Deville

    I also just took possession of a 1996 Deville with 106K miles. Had the car inspected by a certified mechanic. The car runs and looks great, but the first thing I did was to change the tires, shocks and struts, spark plugs and an oil change. I'm also going to change out the fuel filter, mufflers and transmission oil. Some of the above are items prior owners may not bother with as they can be costly, (OEM rear shocks are about $1500.00 each plus labor. Shocks from the Arnott Co. although passive in function are much less costly and built like Fort Knox. I don't like to wait until something falls off the car before fixing it. This Caddy runs like a deer with the Northstar engine and I'm told this car does not like to be driven slow. I was also told to take it out once in awhile and WOT it (wide open throttle) to clear the built up carbon, but check with your dealership to learn more about that. All in all I'm very pleased with this Cadillac. I get 16-17 mpg in the city and I have gotten 28mpg on a trip. My 2005 Chrysler didn't do that well.

    Mike,
    Sounds like a good deal.
    However, it all depends on how well it has been taken care of.
    Oil change, general maintenance, etc.

    I have one with 250,000 on it and still going great!

    Hope this helps.

    HLG
