Once you've gone Caprice, you don't turn back!


Hard to get power down to the starter when below 32F (to get the engine to crank).

General Comments:

Runs great!!! Wouldn't trade or sell it!

No rust on the body or frame, no damage to the interior or the vinyl top.

Reasonable mileage per gallon.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Let me say that the '87 Caprice is the best car in history.

It is the best car I ever owned! Runs smoother than many Cadillacs of today. Not strong, but for a V-8 307, still reasonable on gas mileage. My mom gave it to me when my father died in '97.

Always starts in very cold weather from where I live and has more than 190,000 miles on it, and in summers it pulls my 2 sea-doo wherever I want.
