Awesome, Safe, Quiet Cruiser

I put 30,000 miles on this car in the past year and it was 10 years old with 34,000 original miles when I bought it. Aside from a few minor mechanical fixups that any normal person should expect, this has been a very reliable, smooth riding car. Solid, safe and quiet with excellent gas mileage from a powerful engine. I have read several comments concerning the cheap looking interior and I cannot agree. Again - This has been an excellent experience with a very dependable, solid car. Perhaps those that criticize this car either do not perform the necessary maintenance and/or expect a used car to drive and handle like a new Mercedes. This has been an excellent investment. Will look for another low mileage version of this car once I pass 100K with this one.

My father passed in 2013 no one wanted his car so I got it for 0 it had 97k on it. No question that GM makes a real stinker of a vehicle, for sure to kill a senior citizen with all kinds of expensive repairs when they don't know any better. If you know what the issues are with your particular model year then these can be worth fooling without going upside down dollar wise over sentimental reasons. I have invested 4 k so far to undo, update, and adorn this sloppy creampuff. I love this relic it glides down the highway, cadoo easy,75-80 mph getting 25.6 mpg on reg . Pure guilty pleasure over American junk, Dads car, so sweet....

Shimmy Shimmy SES

Loved the looks of the instrument panel and all the expected Cadillac trimmings when I got it used @ 75K mi. But..... an annoying front end slight vibration at 65 mph+ led me to a new set of tires, alignment, rebalancing, brake rotors, and stabilizer. Still no solution. Must be front axle halves which costs more than the car is worth. Buyer tip: always drive 60 to 70 mph in test drive - this problem does not appear at lower speeds. SES light was a faulty trans torque converter ($1,200) luckily under dealer warranty, but the second Caddy I have had with this fault. The slipping torque converter is totally unrecognizable when driving, but with this error code and the SES light on you cannot pass state vehicle emissions test to renew your registration. Back seat is way too narrow for an average sized adult passenger leg room. I do love the highway MPG @ 28 to 29, but all Northstar engines burn 2 to 3 quarts of oil between changes.

This vehicle is a sporty, stylish, classic, that for the money is returns a great value for dollars invested. If you want a silky smooth ride with all the bells and whistles including a great sound system...this is it! On the highway it gets 27-29 mpg with a saftey net of airbags,crumple zones, skid control, and performance monitoring for comfort and convenience. These vehicles are underpriced and undervalued in today's economy...buy a true American heritage and see what I'm talking about! WFHS COYOTES FOR EVER

Well, it definitely still is one of the sharpest looking cars on the road. Quality-wise, there are no disappointments. The interior is absolutely lovely, what with the zebrano wood trim and crisp leather appointments. Powertrain seems good as well - 4.6liter Northstar fully capable and transmission shifts smoothly. The SLS really does have a 'Cadillac' ride - fully insulating one from the slings and arrows of the outside world; not sporting at all, but still connected to the road. Something you'll have to experience yourself as I recommend you do.
