A safe, dependable, luxo-liner
The fan belt tensioner had to be replaced at approximately 290,000 miles.
The interior windshield pillar trim pieces have both been replaced due to broken clips, but since they had seen over a quarter of a million miles, they probably deserved a rest.
This car, in my opinion is unbeatable in many areas. First, of course is the ride that only a full-size rear drive Cadillac can give. This is a "true" 6 passenger car, where all 6 ride in perfect comfort.
The 5.7 V8 not only can leave most other family sedans behind, but it consistently gets over 20 mpg on the highway even with over 300,000 miles on it.
The only problems I have ever had with any of the previous 10 Cadillacs I have owned has been electrical, and this one has never had the hint of a problem in that regard.
When the manufacturers get tired of dreaming up "gadgetry" to sell vehicles, maybe they will come back to the comfort, quality, and dependability that made Cadillac the real "Standard of The World" years ago and in cars like this one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
