Summary:

Long, low and lovely!

Faults:

The Climate control system is erratic, but seldom used as it is a convertible.

No unusual repairs other than regular maintenance.

General Comments:

A great example of the best Detroit had to offer in 1975. Glamorous styling, great comfort and convenience, but you pay the cost in fuel consumption.

No other Cadillac I've owned turns as many heads while out in it. And isn't that why we buy these parade floats?

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Faults:

CV boots needed replacement, climate control needs work.

General Comments:

A great cruiser, gas mileage is similar to that of a Jeep Grand Cherokee. The caddy is comfortable, stylish, and a blast to drive with the top down. In good shape, these cars are remarkably undervalued as collector vehicles, plus, they are front-wheel drive!!
