    I was thinking about getting one of these, a used '98 or '99 maybe, as a daily driver and keeping the Blazer as a project vehicle. Anyone here have opinions or advice regarding Cateras?
    I rented a 2003 Deville last weekend for a roadtrip and I REALLY enjoyed it so I'm kind of on a Caddy kick.

    Well I work at a Cadillac dealership and these things are always in for service, mainly for heavy line stuff. They are nice cars but had some serious quality control issues with them, but other than that they are really nice cars and drive really well.

    Caddy's are awesome...my dad has an Acura 3.2 that i like a lot, its front wheel drive though...but you can get something like that a few years old for about 14K, and really reliable.

    My grandfather has one. It's a pretty nice car. He had a few problems with his, but all under warranty. The came to his house with a rollback, towed the car to the dealership, fixed the problem, detailed the car, and changed his oil for free. Damn classy dealerships.
