1987 Cadillac Cimarron 2.8 from North America
I like it even if nobody else does
Right now it has a miss and or rough idle at low RPM.
Nothing major just routine maintenance.
This car never lets me down. It always starts when I turn the key, even if something is wrong. I can always make it to the parts store.
The interior is comfortable and it rides like a "CADDY" for sure.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I rather like the Cimarron myself, as I also like the Cavalier it was based on, but it seems that the idea of a glorified Cavalier wearing a Cadillac badge didn't go over well with most people. From what I hear, though, the Cimarron really isn't such a bad car.
Good review, and an outstanding title for it. I happen to like the Cimarron too, and would very much like to own one someday. It's one of a long line of cars I'd like to have, but perhaps partly because it's so unwanted it is a car that, more often than not, someone could eventually come to own.
Another reviewer called the Cimarron... what was it? "a baby Mercedes at a bargain price". Yes, I think that was it. That describes this unique and unusual Cadillac well, too.
So I can assure the reviewer that he/she is not alone in liking the Cimarron. The Pinto, the Edsel, and the DeLorean all have found folks who like them. The Cimarron will too if it hasn't already.
I think it is important to remember that in the mid-1980s, there were still good cars around - real cars - like full sized Oldsmobiles, Cadillacs, Lincolns, etc., with real V8 engines and rear wheel drive. Of course the Cimarron didn't compare very well with those, but in light of the terrible over-complex and unreliable high-dollar garbage that's been foisted on the consumer ever since, the mid 80s Cimarron is a pretty good car.
