Get a good one and enjoy it
I got this car second owner, through a dealer. Previous owner passed it on to his wife, wife got too old and sold it back to the original dealer.
So this car was in quite premo condition. The only thing that went wrong so far is that the battery went, but I should have replaced that out of principle since this is was an older car.
I had all of the fluids changed just to make sure.
The drivers seat heater is out.
The family loves this car.
We have been through conversion vans, blazers, Caprice station wagons, older caddies and everyone likes this car best. I think this series is the best last big car you can buy. Mileage has been better than expected, about 20MPG around town if we are careful, 29 on the highway at 70MPH.
The Northstar might not be the hottest engine around, but this car gets up and goes like none I've had before. It's nice to have SOME performance with all that confort. It has a greally great sound too, which makes you feel like you have performance under the hood. Seats are great, holding up well.
Yes you have to add oil to the engines, but its by design. I just use cheap oil, add it and change it frequently. I have nice 92 Buick Riveria with 30K miles- it's a great car, but I'm thinking of selling and getting a second DeVille. For the money and mileage and power I think I'd be happier!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
