1989 Cadillac Brougham Base 307 Olds from North America
Classic and reliable American luxury
Cruise inoperable at purchase, power antenna inoperable.
The day after purchase, a blinker bulb went out.
I just got this car and I love it. I have previously owned a 1975 Cadillac sedan as well as a coupe, and this is my third "classic" Cadillac.
I have heard that the reliability of these cars is outstanding. Even at 22 years old, the fit, finish, ride, etc is excellent.
The 307 engine is underpowered if you need to quickly accelerate, but otherwise is fine.
The interior of the car is attractive and luxurious, and has held up better than most luxury cars this age.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

These Oldsmobile 307's are known to have excessive carbon build up in the EGR ports. Replace the EGR valve and have the EGR ports cleaned out. Also, have the timing checked and adjusted if necessary by a professional technician. That should cure any sluggish engine performance.
Can't beat a Fleetwood Brougham Caddy!
These are one of the most elegant, luxurious cars on the road. Interior comfort cannot be matched by any other luxury cars, they don't even come close.
Long live the land yachts!
