This was my first car, and it has been my pride and joy. I've been into Cadillacs for a long time, and know that many of the vehicles Cadillac produced between 1980 and the present day are anything but reliable.
This car, however, and any Cadillac with the 4.9 engine, is EXTREMELY reliable. This is a great looking vehicle with plenty of power.
Driving this car is unlike any other car I've driven; it glides down the road with plenty of power and acceleration.
The interior is obviously comfortable and roomy; it's a Cadillac. Lots of storage room (once fitted a drum set, three amps, two guitars, a bass and three people in this car with ease).
I used this car as a daily driver since I bought it, and the past two summers I accumulated a lot of miles driving to and from job sites (8,000+ this summer alone). I also used this car to get me through a year and a half of college.
I unfortunately have to sell mine because little things are beginning to go wrong with it, and being in school, I have neither the time or the money to fix the little things. But if you can find one of these cars in good condition with low miles, you will not regret it as a daily driver or as a weekend cruiser.
If you love Cadillacs like I do, and don't want to restore a classic or spend five figures on a new one, then track down a late 80's/early 90's caddy with a 4.5 of 4.9 motor. Stay away from the the Northstar, far far away.
