I just bought a 94 Deville and I can say it is the single worst car I have ever owned. I expected much more from this luxury car...what I got was a ton of electrical problems on a car with 75 k miles on it. Maybe I was wrong to have the impression that because it is a cadillac, a top of the line GM auto, that it would go with no problems for a long long time, like my Lincoln town car.....guess what...NOPE !!!
I cant believe after browsing this forum that there are so many problems with cadillac autos and people still keep buying them...if i had paid fifty thousand dollars for a car that crapped out after a couple of years, as some posts on the technical forums indicate, I would lose my mind. The only thing going for the deville as far as I can see is that it is a bit more roomy in the front seat area than my lincoln, but that is it !! It doesnt drive as well or handle as well as a lincoln town car....after owning this car and the t.c....why would anyone ever by a caddy? They just dont cut the mustard...and the front wheel drive feeling and vibrations in the car are bad. Again....the town car glides like on a cloud....like driving a luxury car...oh wait....IT IS !!! My tc has 190,000 on it and no problems....Cadillac, 78 and tons of problems....all electrical in nature and ridiculous to try and find what actually causes them.
To any execs or anyone else interested in buying a cadillac....test out the Lincoln town cars first...I'm sure the difference will be noticable and they are known for going well over 100 k without crapping out. I plan on selling the caddy as soon as possible and never buying another GM car again. Fords, Lincolns or a German or Japanese car...for reliabilty is the way to go it seems.
