It's a comfy cruiser with scary expensive parts to replace
I got this car from my grandfather who had only driven it about 33000 in the 11 years that he owned it so it had some problems from just sitting around.
When I got the car, the ABS light was on. The dealer told me it was the main valve body and it would cost $850 to replace.
The car will die at stoplights if the fuel tank reads 6 or below gallons. The dealer said there was a technical service bulletin out for the tank. The bulletin said that the baffles in the tank could fail causing stalling. The dealer wanted over $800 to replace the tank, pump, and sending unit.
The trunk lid pull down switch quit working.
The fuel pressure regulator is failing and the dealer wanted $175 to replace that.
The dealer told me that the master cylinder was leaking and needed replaced for over $800.
Overall, the dealer wanted to charge me over $3000 for parts and labor to fix things on a 11 year old car, with only 34000 miles on it. I told him he was crazy because the car is not even worth that much. I had him replace 3 hard to reach heater hoses and change the oil for about $200. Then, I drove away.
This is a great riding car which has good power and really makes long trips easy.
Stay away from dealers with your older Cadillac. They will really try and take you to the cleaners!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
