1989 Cadillac Allante 4.5 from North America
Great 2nd car, fells like a real Italian car
Radio Speakers all had to be rebuilt (Cadillac allante club very helpful)
Idle control motor went bad and car stalled (90.00 dealer part)
Several convertible top issues (club)
Window stuck in down position (dealer still had parts)
Now have oil leak I think my pan is bad.
This is the most fun you can have without spending a whole lot of cash. the local chapters out there will help you keep this baby alive.
It does need some TLC, but it is a very rewarding ride.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Cadillacallanteclub.com is very helpful when it comes to hard to find parts. They got my braking system parts after Cadillac told me that I was out of luck, since they don't make them anymore.

I have a Cadillac Allante 1989. Some times when driving across town, the car will not start. After sitting for hour or two, the car will start up.

About a year ago, you said you had a problem with your Allante not starting. I have similar problem. Did you ever figure it out?

I would recommend looking into the VATS key bypass.

I had a similar problem with my 95 Seville. It turned out to be the fuel pump. It would show normal pressure when randomly checked, and my mechanic just happened to check it when it was acting up and the pressure dropped very low, and of course it stalled (if it sat for a time it would start).
