1995 Cadillac DeVille Base 4.9L from North America
It is a great car
This has been a very reliable car for me. To date I've only done routine maintenance work - changed oil, coolant and hoses, and belts. The paint holds up very well and still shines like showroom quality.
Fall of '15 it started leaking oil, and just this Feb I had the oil seals redone and pan gasket replaced, and tranny service (new gasket). It performs as well as you'd expect from a 20 year old car.
The dealer wouldn't service a '95, so had to get it done at an independent garage. Well, they didn't do a very good job and it's still leaking, and now the ABS light was on when I picked up my car. Not pleased with that mechanic. Need to find a place that knows how to work on older model Cadillacs. The mechanic I always went to retired and now I must find a good mechanic again. Always make sure the guy knows how to work on a Cadillac.
I like this sedan. Nice luxury leather interior, seats are holding up very well, no squeaks, radio still works and sounds good.
On long drives I get over 30 MPG! It's true. Stop and go driving will only average around 20-22 MPG.
It has good acceleration; great on the freeways.
It is a true Cadillac luxury with lots of room inside
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Check the fittings next to the oil filter (located on the upper driver's side I believe). Some of the fittings in that area leak when the vehicle is running. I had to remove them on my 4.9L and wrap with tape - then re-attach. Also all of the transmission and oil lines that are made of steel are at the age where they will begin rusting thru and leaking all over the place (depending on where you live). Best of luck!
