1996 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham 5.7 V8 from North America
A true gem that was my grandmother's pride and joy
Recently had all the fluids replaced.
Been problem free otherwise.
When my 1996 Plymouth Breeze was totaled in a car accident back in 2009, I needed another vehicle. My 82 year old grandmother was about to be put in a nursing home. She had asked me if I wanted the car, and I gladly said yes. What a gift!!
I remembered when my grandmother had bought the car. It is all midnight blue. It still has the original spare tire in the trunk. Speaking of the trunk, it is huge!! You can easily fill it with a bunch of grocery bags, or some luggage.
As for the interior, it is huge as well. Plenty of room for 6 people. The interior of this car is true Cadillac luxury, 90's style. It was never smoked in, and still is to this very day.
As far as the ride is concerned, it rides beautifully! And that 260 horsepower sure comes through when you are on the interstates. Plenty of passing power. Parking it requires a big parking space and patience.
There are no dents or rust on this car, simply because the car has and always will be garage kept.
Recently, I went to see my grandmother at the nursing home, and when she saw the car, she cried happily that the car still looked as perfect as it did when she had it. I took my grandmother for a ride in it, and she told me to pamper it, and I do that.
I also have a 2008 SRX, and only use it when I have to. It gets loads of compliments. I love it, and will keep it. It is truly a gem!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
