^^^ Not everyone who comes to the Forums is as computer savvy as you are Vincent! I'd rather have someone join us and learn how to post pictures than be put off by a requirement.

Re: My first cadillac

Welcome and uh-um . . .


this_thread_is_worthless_without_pics.gif

BTW, the 92-97 Seville STS was IMO BY FAR the best looking 4 door Seville Cadillac ever made. The car is very minimalist compared to previous Cadillac designs, its angular and chiseled, it has a certain Italian flare about it. If I were in the market back in 1992-95ish, it would have been a tough choice between the Seville STS, the Lexus LS400, or the Acura Legend. The 5 series BMW and Benz E class were very much products of the 1980's and it showed in their styling. I still think I would've chosen the Seville based on style and the 300hp Northstar engine under hood.

Now that 20 years have passed, I'd drive the hell out of that Lexus every day of the week. If the Cadillac had been proven as reliable, it would be my choice, but the Lexus LS400 is pretty much bullet-proof. The Legend is also pretty damn stout, but for the life of me I can't find any examples of this car left that aren't beat to hell.

As much as I loved my '00 STS I have to agree... The 4th Gen was a sleeker and more stylish car. Both look great though and I would most likely buy the 5th Gen again because it is more modern.

You and I are in the same boat. I'm a first time caddy owner. Also a 97 sts. I love this car. I agree about the body styling, I think it's one of the last classy, big style cadillacs. Welcome to the forum. I read discussions, past and present, every day.

I 100% agree. That gen Seville is DEFinitely the best looking Seville. My folks test drove a brand new 93 back then. Pearl white, tan leather. Beautiful car. Have loved that style ever since.

And I also agree on the solidity of the same year LS400. My neighbor use to have a white, 1992 LS400 that I always parked next to with my 98 black ES300. This car of his, if you didn't know any better, you'd think just rolled off the factory assembly line. From the inside to the outside. Had the dark blue interior and I gawked at it every time I walked by. Lol. The interior of my ES looks nearly new but outside, not as much. This was just a year ago as well. I wanted his car very much. Lol.


And of course, welcome to the OP!! I'm sure you'll continue to love your purchase!
