1988 Cadillac DeVille from North America
I think it is a very good car
Drivers window fell off track.
Heater stopped working.
A/C has a leak.
Even though the car was 19 years old when I bought it, I still did because of the shape it was in.
This car had been garaged kept its whole live, by the original owner, who I knew. It looked almost new. It had never been in an accident. The interior of the car looked like it did the day it came off the showroom floor. The trunk still had some things covered in plastic.
I had a 1999 Lincoln before the Cadillac. I had second thoughts about buying a car that was 11 years older than the one I had. But the Cadillac ran so well, I could not pass it up.
I was surprised at the performance of the car, it would run circles around my Lincoln, and on a long trip I got 25 MPG on the highway. That was a very happy surprise. My general overall mileage with city and town driving is 21MPG.
The car has well over 100,000 miles on it now and it does not burn a drop of oil at all. The only problems I have had are the driver’s window fell off the track, and the AC and heater stopped working. I fixed the heater, was a vacuum problem with one of the controls, and the AC has a very slow leak.
So far I have been happily surprised at how well this old a car runs. I have not had any or the problems that I have seen listed on this site. For my money, this was a very well built car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
