1992 Cadillac DeVille 4.9L V8 from North America
Great, reliable American luxury!
First off, nothing was really wrong with the car up until I had a run in with a 2012 model Mazda Miata. My Cadillac completely totaled the Mazda, and I ended up driving away from the accident.
After the crash, the radiator fan assembly went bad, both CV axles now need replaced, and I need a new gas tank because the baffles broke, so when fuel rushes to the front of the tank, if there's not much gas in the tank, the car stalls, but always starts right back up.
Even though the accident caused a lot of issues with the vehicle, I still have had no problems getting from A to B. The car has never left me stranded and has been great to me. I will fix this car back to 100% specifications, and will continue driving her until the wheels fall off, which most likely will be never... LOL.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Yeah, sorry to hear about the accident. A family member got into an accident one time in a 95 Fleetwood. A 1998 Camry t-boned the Cadillac. The Camry was dead on the spot, including a passenger. My family member walked away without a single scratch, and only a big Camry front end sized dent on the front driver's door and front fender. The Cadillac's frame and interior workings were untouched. The Camry engine entered into the passenger compartment, causing the passenger death and severe injury to the driver. The Camry was clocked at about 50 mph. If you had seen this Camry afterwards, you would have sworn it ran into a reinforced brick wall, like one of those crash test commercials.

UPDATE: 247,000 miles and running strong. Just needs some minor TLC, and I'm hoping to get this car to 300k. That's the goal.
