1991 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz 4.9 MPFI from North America
Not Bad, Wouldn't get another, BUY JAPANESE!!!
Upper Tranny hose leaks.
Pax side CV Joint boot split.
Cat Convertor disintegrated.
Rotors warped, shakes like a two dollar hooker when you brake.
Radio (BOSE) doesn't work.
When I first bought this car (used) it ran pretty well. I expected it to have problems (hence the word used) so I knew I would have to put some cash into it.
I don't mind the little problems, but it's the big ones that bug me.
The engine began rattling (pinging, detonation) after 1000 miles of driving and I've replaced everything except the EGR valve (due to be installed this Friday, wood knocked, fingers crossed, hope that fixes it).
Gas mileage isn't bad for a V8 but the small tank doesn't allow you to drive far. I filled up 3 times on a six hour trip at an average 75MPH and 22 MPG. THAT SUCKED!
Overall I like it cause it looks good on me WHEN IT'S NOT BROKE...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Excuse me, you bought a 13 year old car with over 100K miles, you should have expected to have to make some repairs, and not just by replacing parts until you hit on the one causing the problem. If that is what your mechanic is doing, find a new one!
And why did you not find out how many gallons the gas tank held BEFORE you bought it, if that is so important?
