1989 Cadillac Brougham 5.0L Olds 307 from North America
This is among the best of its class and can compete with most new cars on most levels
Previous Owner: Automatic Day/Night mirror fails to adjust automatically.
Previous Owner: Cruise Control button difficult to engage.
Lockup solenoid had to be replaced.
A/C needs recharging; may have leak or bad Power Control Module.
Service Engine Soon light is on all the time; ALDL port has failed, but ECM (computer) does not indicate any problem with the engine. It is an electrical problem which has yet to be diagnosed.
Mileage has dropped from 15 MPG in town to 9 MPG.
This is one of the most wonderful vehicles on the road today, despite the fact that it is now over 16 years old.
The leather interior is nearly flawless, but the bench-style seating is not as supportive, especially during cornering.
The size and bulk of the vehicle ensure a smooth, quiet and comfortable ride.
The styling remains among the better in Cadillac history, provided you enjoy it! The 1970's appearance combined with the 1980's conveniences makes this one eye-catching car you're proud to drive and show off.
Everyone agrees: the Olds 307 is weak, but VERY reliable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
