I have a 91 Seville and I get 17 miles to the gallon city and almost 28 highway using cruse control. Even if I nearly floor it on every stop light in town I still get 15 city.

Have a 1990 Seville and wonder what the solution is to the sagging rear suspension???

This is an overall dependable car with a smooth ride. Just beware of keeping your fluids maintained and DO NOT buy a black Seville, the clear coat will start to peel and it looks terrible.

I have a 1990 seville with 55000 miles on it. The car runs great and can smoke the tires when ever you want it to. The cars gets bad gas mileage, I drive all city and get 12-13 mpg.

Just getting ready to buy my first 1990 Cadillac Seville this weekend. Wanted to know if anyone might have an idea what this problem might be. The problem I am faceing is the car stops at every light and I have to restart it. But all in all I am getting a great deal on it. Only paying $300.00 for it and it still looks good. So shoot me a line if you know whats the deal with email@example.com.

I just purchased a 1990 Seville. What a gem! 49,000 miles and 900 bucks!!! The car is nearly flawless. I am averaging 21 mpg around town. My cruise isn't working and the turn signal lever doesn't return after you make a turn. It does sometimes, but rarely. Those are my only issues right now.
The previous owner put 4 new wide white tires on the car for $900.00, a tune up and battery and oil change for $300 more. I literally stole this car.
Not crazy about the wire wheel covers, would prefer the aluminum rims that were standard.
This car was bought new for an elderly woman from her son, and was always garaged and never driven in inclement weather conditions, and it shows on the almost like new paint.
The only trouble is the interior smells like a garage for being in one so long. But after a detailing, that should be no longer an issue.
This is great find, and all the comments I have read are positive, which makes me feel comfortable knowing if I take care of her she should last many years to come.
Oh yes, and the A/C needs a charge according to the information center LOL. This car even came with the gold key cassette for those who want to listen instead of read the manual!
I am one lucky guy!

MY 1990 Seville with only 49K on it has now cost me $2000 in 1 month.
I had to have the A/C fixed, which was just the screw cap as it was leaking.
The blinker was a $3 spring, and the cruise was a loose wire.
So far so good right? WRONG! The transmission was shot with only 49K miles and it cost me $1800 for a rebuilt one with only a year warranty. And I still have to change out the rear shocks due to rattling that is so annoying. And someone stole my wire wheel covers.
My $900 find has turned into the money pit. I still love the car because now I have time and money invested. With the car sitting and not running, this was an issue with this car. Even though it has been garaged and kept warm, the car needs to be ran.

I just bought a 1990 Seville for $500, and everything is perfect, except it says I only get 8.8 miles to the gallon.
From reading the other comments, I see the mpg varies quite a bit, but on average it should be getting at least 15 I would think.
I don't know a darn thing about cars, and was thinking maybe a tune up would give it better mpg's? I don't know.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!

I have a 1990 Seville. I love the car, but I can't figure out what is wrong with it all. The dash lights, the radio, and the head lights blink on and off, then won't even turn on. Now I can't drive it in the dark, and barely during the day.
I have been told this could be a bunch of different things; the alternator, the alarm system, the fuel pump, but I'm just not sure. The car has almost 170000 miles on it, but still runs good.
I just got a new battery for it that cost me $90, and that is getting drained. If there is anyone who can tell me what is wrong, please tell me firstname.lastname@example.org
