Yes, how many people are sick of telling someone about their (recent) Cadillac purchase and hearing back one of the following:-
a) WOW, for what YOU spent, you coulda had a LEXUS!
b) My Uncle Bill just got a new BMW. Boy is it beautiful!
c) My boss at work just got a new Mercedes, I gotta get me one of those one day!
d) My Father is getting a new Jaguar. Have you seen them?
e) My Doctor has a new black INFINITI ~ THAT'S the car I WANT !
f) "You shoulda bought a Corvette" ~ ~
g) My Mother just got a new Pearl Town Car, you should see it!

I am so sick of these type of answers. Nobody can just say, "That's really nice. Best of luck with it" ~ They immediately have to draw attention to ANOTHER brand of car, and ANOTHER person. Am I the only person who picks up on this ? :confused:

I can't say that's happened to me, but I do get a lot of "Ooooh, that's the car from the Matrix". No one can remember that it's a "CTS". It's easier to remember "Matrix car".

Which Cadillac did you get?

ive gotten a bunch of those. Its usually "why did you get that, a lexus is so much better." or "eh, thats ok, but a bimmer is nicer."

my answer is always, "well it was this or a lincoln, but the lincoln was a POS and im NOT buying an import."

I will never buy a car from a company that is not owned by Ford or GM. My reach for imports go as far as Saab, Volvo, or Mazda.

I get it all of the time. Your driving an old man's car. You should have gotten a civic or something a kid drives. Or a beemer etc....
I bought the eldo for a reason. I LOVE THE CAR its mine not yours either say im happy for you or leave me alone. I dont' put others down about there choice in an automobile. I hate imports i would NEVER drive one but to each is his own. To spite the world that they say its an old mans car i put my grandfathers old 40's style hat in the back window and put "old school" eagles football window stickers in the one window.

Josh, I'm in Bucks County all the time!! (Usually getting lost)! Titusville, New Hope, Lambertville and the rest of them. I like Washington's Crossing & the State Park therein. Food Poisoning in New Hope is always enjoyable! :bighead:

I am about 15 mins from New Hope. I live right near Rt 309 where bucks and montogermy county meet if that helps. Its not that bad but it can be very frusrtating b/c of some of the roads that really don't go anywhere. I have them down pretty good. The places I have problems with are right off of rt 32 where the country or general store is on the way to ringing rocks if you know where that is

I get a lot of compliments on the Caddy! People love 'em. They're different. However, I am not close minded about having a bimmer, lexus, mercedes, etc. Whatever luxury brand it is, I just want to own a specific model, in a specific package, with specific features/options, etc. that suites my likes. I wouldn't just buy any lexus or mercedes or Acura. I hate the Lexus' that look exactly like camry's...:rolleyes:

For now though, I'm stickin with the black on black Caddy tho!!

I've spent time in Lexus, BMW, Mercedes, and Jag.

For the money, I don't think they're worth it. I'm stuck in the early 90s, price-wise. I think $35,000 should get you a LOADED luxury car. For $30K, I can get a loaded 2002 DHS with less than 30,000 miles. That's good enough for me right now.

Sorry

It's probably because of the work on the car, but all I hear is "Nice ride!" or "That's an Eldorado! Sweet!" or "Never seen a tricked out Eldo before, looks great!" or "Nice ride man, are those 20's? -Nope, just 18's- They fit the car really well man" But, I've done enough work that it looks like nothing else.

The only responses I got were good ones, except one guy told me I should've gotten a Civic (he owns a Civic). I couldn't tell if he was joking or not..

actually no, according the the Federal Govn't, thw definition of a luxury car is a car that when new cost MORE THAN $40,000. That means most of these Japanese luxury cars are not that, they are near-luxury cars; kinda like a Buick, Mercury, or Oldsmobile.

The number 1 LUXURY car company is still Lincoln, second is Caddillac. But the comany with the highest sales that has a few luxury cars is still lexus.
