What makes an '02 Seville STS better than an '02 Eldorado ETC? What are the facts? I know the Seville is on an updated chassy - does that mean it handles better? I hope somebody will take the time to explain any differences - besides the obvious...
it's not an updated chassis rather it's an updated suspension. Both STS and 50th anniversary vette came out with the newer suspension which is supposedly more responsive than any other system out on this earth by a margin.
The best handling of all Seville's is the late '02 and '03 Seville STS with the MagneRide suspension system. Also eliminates the need to replace the CVRSS shocks at 100k miles. As STS2003 and Sub will tell you, the handling is much improved over the old setup. Jan '02 is the breaking point for MR, though I'm not sure of the exact VIN# that it starts up at.
The Eldo ETC use the same suspension setup from the 4th Gen. STS. It's not nearly as well handling as the '98 model. Though to be honest, none of the FWD cars handle as well as the '05+ STS does. Especially when you opt for the sports package.
