Magnificent Beauty

by BJC815 from Colorado Springs, CO on Sat Jun 24 2017

This car was one of the most beautiful and reliable cars I ever owned. The Northstar engine always started and ran beautifully. It got excellent fuel economy as well - 26 mpg highway - until I put nitrogen in the tires, and then it got 29 mpg! Handling was nimble, solid, and luxurious.

Top of the line yet costs less than a VW.

by 97 Eldo Colorado from Colorado Springs, CO on Wed Apr 15 2009

The high price of gas last year scared folks away from Caddys...this caddy gets 24MPG on the highway and cruises with 300hp. When it needs servicing I take it to a local shop that knows caddys. Don't trust it to a hobby shop as there are many nuances about all the electronics. Great comfort and reliability and overall not that expensive to keep.

Awesome for what I paid for it.

by GSingh from CAli on Thu Aug 07 2008

This car is outfitted with "the best engine ever made" as some like to say, the northstar V8. It flies on a dime. The interior is extremely comfortable and is packed like an extremely expensive European sedan. It also looks good in any driveway. The only bad thing that happened to me was the alternator went out along with the battery on I-5 on a 6 hour trip. other than that, no mechanical failures. Would recommend buying it now since the price is like play money for something like this.

Our Take on the 1996 Cadillac Eldorado

Big coupes seem to be a GM specialty. Whether you're talking about the 1963 Buick Riviera, the 1976 Cadillac Eldorado or the 1984 Corvette, GM has a heritage of function following form when it comes to coupes. The latest samples, Buick's Riviera and Cadillac's Eldorado are two of GM's newer entries.

1996 BUICK RIVIERA

Redesigned last year, this big boat sees little change save the addition of real wood accents that help warm the otherwise cold plastic interior, and a more powerful optional engine.

That engine, Buick's supercharged 3.8-liter V-6, gets 240 horses with 280 pound-feet of torque. That's enough to propel this 3,722-pound land yacht to 60 in just about 8 seconds. The... Read More
