Oil pump was gone when we first purchased this vehicle, had to get it replaced. there was no oil pressure what so ever.
Door handles don't open door sometimes.
Driver side power window didn't work.
Muffler fell off while taking a turn.
Leaks oil like it is its job.
This car is the most comfortable car money can buy, and for being such an old car you can get them pretty cheap. the interior is big and luxurious. you can fit 6 people comfortably in it.
The body is great and is a classic, you get a lot of looks when you drive this beast. the tail lights are very classy. I love the diamond shape tail lights on the caddy's.
The car is so easy to drive once you get use to the big feel, it pretty much drives itself when you get going.
The engine lacks power, it has only a 160 HP engine, and when the car weighs 4,000 lbs this makes acceleration sluggish. 0-60 id say about 13-15 seconds. but you can really feel it kick when you floor it, but you can also feel the gas get sucked out of your tank too.
Gas mileage is actually very good for a V8, I get about 20 mpg, but I'm a conservative driver especially when it comes to driving caddy's. you should put a middle grade octane in it like an 89 octane. its better for the older V8 engines.
This car starts in any weather, even in Buffalo NY where the winters are very cold.
