    If they're such junk, then why'd you buy two of them? Once bitten twice shy?
    I bought the '99 Eldorado cause it was $700 and doesn't have the H/G issue. It just came my way and I could care less if it blows up. Hell a few weeks of driving it justifies the price. I didn't go looking for it, it found me.

    Performance and oil consumption are not 1 in the same. I have had several cars with better performance that didn't burn oil and those were in high performance cars. It's much worse in a supposed "luxury car". It is no "luxury" having to top off the oil every few hundred miles. If I paid $45k for a new one and had this problem I'd be every bit but as upset about this as he is. I'm already having the problem with my '99 Eldo and had it with my '98 Deville. Make no mistake, it is a problem and not a good thing. For what I paid for my '99 Eldo, I don't care. I'll gladly pay to maintain it till it dies.

    Agree. Why is everyone ganging up on the OP, who obviously is just venting his frustration? Geesh.

    When you make a new thread, ask yourself, "What is my intent? What is my message or main idea? What will my audience gain from it? What do I want to achieve?"



    I hope your next vehicle is more satisfying to own.

    Why, are you affraid that the truth about these junk motors will hurt sales at your dealership? Give me a break about how good these cars are because there not. I tried for years to justify buying these because I wanted to keep my money with an american company but Im just fed up with getting the run around from GM after spending this money and they say nothing is wrong. For god Sakes my new DTS sounds like its has a rod knock on cold starts and they said that is normal, LOL, what a joke. Or I guess the Joke is on all of us the buy these new.

    Look guys, Im for sure that the most of you have bought your cars used and at a great low price but you have to wonder why a $50,000 car loses so much value if it is so good. If I was buying my cars used for next to nothing then maybe I would care a little less like most of you that has posted rudely but thats not my case. I was really wanting a XLR but I have totally changed my mind on it. I also went for a ride in my buddies 08 STS and the entire front end felt like it was going to fall out of it when we turned. I asked him what the hell is wrong with this thing and he replied that Gm said that it was normal and not to worry about it.

    Please dont take offense to this thread because all that Im doing is venting at GM BS and not at or anyone on this forum especially Ranger for he has been nothing but helpful to me in many other discussions.

    This site is a great cadillac site and by no means was I trying to degrade it.
