1990 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty Special 4.5 V8 from North America
It's a big, comfortable car that may have little issues, but won't leave you stranded ever
Passenger side half shaft.
Catalytic converter clogged.
CD player failure.
Some rust within door frames.
Front passenger window slow.
Door locks don't function properly.
Driver's seat worn.
Despite the aforementioned problems, this vehicle has never left me stranded like the Discovery I used to own. For a nearly 23 year old car, it does very well for itself.
Driving dynamics are pretty comfortable and pleasant, and the ride is as smooth as expected. Although the handling gets pretty sloppy when pushed. The brakes are very sure footed, and the car stops very well for something so heavy. Acceleration is good for a big car with 170 HP. Also, these front wheel drive Caddies are wonderful in the snow.
Recently I was rear ended by a Grand Cherokee going 30+ mph, and I will say my car won. The bumper is bent, but all the lights still work, and I still drive it daily after opting to keep it from the insurance company, while still receiving more than I ever paid for it. A very safe car, that is made of mostly metal, not plastic.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

This was my image of a perfect car when I was younger. And it still is!
