    Filed under: Sedan, Cadillac, Rumormill, Luxury Cadillac Sixteen concept - Click above for high-res image gallery There was a time, not so long ago, that if you wanted a proper fullsize luxury sedan (short of a Bentley or Rolls-Royce, at least), your choices were "largely" limited to the...
  2. New Mercedes S63 AMG---- A FORCE TO RECKON WITH ?

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Just noticed the new 2011 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG(sedan) is sporting a new 5.5 liter bi-turbo V-8 that is available with either 544 HP & 590 ft-lb of torque OR 571 HP & 664 ft-lb of torque! Sounds like it could spell trouble for the unmodded V's out there?
  3. The end of the DTS?

    Cadillac DTS Forum 2006 through 2011
    I have always loved Cadillacs. The first time I rode in one back as a child and I felt the plush leather seats and the smooth powerful drive, I was hooked! The only other car that came close was the Towncar. I was reading that they have stopped making the DTS and their new flagship car is a V6...

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    Rick's comment "It's a lot more fun to drive a slow car fast, than a fast car slow" has alot of merit. I certainly have enjoyed driving some slow, but with stick shift, cars fast. I can't say the same for fast, stick shift cars. My 1983 Scirocco didn't have a very high terminal velocity but with...

  6. 93-96 FWB Seat quality/comfort

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    I was just wondering how many of you feel about the leather seats in terms of quality of the leather and comfort level vs other luxury cars of the day? Personally I feel that these are very comfortable seats, they are not too soft, and not too firm, which is important on long trips. I just got...
  7. Purchased a Jaguar on a whim

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    I've wanted a convertible for years, really liked the XK8... last week I drove by one parked on the side of the road, made a u turn, and there was a for sale sign in the window. I fell in love instantly. So... before I bought it I brought it to my mechanic who checked it out very crudely (he...

  9. Report: GM to announce repayment of federal loans in full on Wednesday

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    According to Autoblog, GM will be repaying the last of the cash portion of their loan from the American Government (and taxpayers) on Wednesday. The cash portion of the loans will then be repaid in full- the remaining $37B was "paid" at the time of the BK by converting it into 60% ownership of...

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    My Father is an auto enthusiast like most of us... he is a 16 year old trapped in a 58 year old body. He loves his cars and loves to change his 'stable' every year. Last year he bought my Mother a 2009 Jaguar XKR Convertible to replace her BMW 760Li. She thought she wanted a sporty coupe now...
  11. What do they say about your car?

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    I'm poking around carsurvey.org trying to get a feel for some sedans and SUVs. The Seville's transmission is starting to slip from 1-2 and it needs new front struts. All of that totals a few grand for a car quickly approaching 200k. Its dealt with abuse and given itself generously to its owners...

  13. Disappointment...

    Cadillac XTS Forum 2013-2019
    Swing and a miss!!! It's a gorgoues car, it really is. As a consumer I have always felt that a premium car needed 4 things in order to be a great vehicle and sell well. 1. Nice interior- Luxury 101, great materials arranged in a nice way. 2. RWD- a sporty feeling car that disguises its size and...

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    In my search for a RWD Brougham, Coupe, or Fleetwood I am running into a problem. I am looking for any of the above models from 1982 thru 1992 (since this timeframe is my favorite body style) and it seems like every "for sale" add I come across; the cars are either equipped with a 4.1 or...
