The Caprice is a Classic, what more can one say
Radiator went out in 1998.
Starter & Alternator replaced in 1999.
Heater Core replaced in 2001.
Replaced hoses to A/C unit in 2001, no longer lose freon.
Major repairs have not been too much of a issue. General maintenance & tune-ups have kept my Caprice running strong.
This car has the most interior room of any car I have driven. The comfort factor is a 10+, you can drive forever in this car and not get tired.
For the smaller 305 engine, there is more than enough power to accelerate the size & weight of such a large car.
I learned to drive my Uncle's 79 Caprice Sedan, and was honored to be the caretaker of his 1983 Caprice Sedan after his passing in 1996.
I love the Caprice so much I bought a 1973 Caprice Coupe in November 2002. And also purchased a 1991 Caprice Wagon in February 2003.
Just wish Chevrolet would get their heads on straight & send the Caprice back to the States. The Middle East & Australia should not be the only ones to be able to obtain a new Caprice.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
