Purchased my Eldorado in 1997. A great car with a great profile. Plenty of power. Runs as smoothly today as it did the day I drove it off the car lot. The Cadillac brand has always been noted for its smooth ride. The car has 39,000 miles and has been garaged since 1997. Saw wet pavement probably 3 or 4 times in the last 10 years. Have had numerous requests asking whether I am interested in selling the car.

This was my first car after having 3 big 4x4 trucks before it. I didn't want a small car after being used to trucks but needed something that got better gas mileage. I found my 97 red Eldorado about a year ago with 117,000 miles and have about 123,000 on it now and I must say that this thing is a beast! gets about 16-18 in the city and suprizingly I actually get 31 mpg on the highway in this. I get a lot of staring and people rolling down their windows to compliment the car. For such an old car with quite a few miles on it, it runs great! the only negative that I would have to say is that replacing the starter is a pain in the butt! Took hours because it was located underneath the intake so I had to take all that apart before even getting to the starter! Overall I love the car especially on long trips!

Bought used, hi mileage

Former car: Lincoln TC, '88. This Cad bought used, 77K on it, needs shocks. Under Blue Book by $1,200. ETCwith all the bells and whistles. Hella good value at $4,500, with all books, etc. Truly, it is one of the last of the muscle cars. Am hoping other users findings of 16 City, 22 to 25 Hiway are about correct, as it's gotta have premium gas. Have had six hi-mileage Eldo's since 1969 - this by far the best of the bunch. Rolls features at a rock bottom Detroit price. Getting hard to find:Lookin' cherry with the fancy moonroof, CD changer, chrome wheels.

Black on Black, it's a beauty. ETC with every available option. A real pleasure to take on the open road, like unleashing a thorobred horse this thing wants to run. Very comfortable on long rides. Sporty suspension, not a boat like the big Caddys. Fit and finish is excellent.
