I purchased my Cadillac in October of 2008 with 94,000 original miles on it. I was fortunate enough to buy this vehicle from an older family who took amazing care of it. The original owner leased it from the dealer and used this as his company car. It saw every oil change and service from a dealer for over half its life. All together I have put about a total of $1,500 worth of parts and labor into it (that includes oil and transmission fluid change), which sounds high, but in reality is normal of any car. If you get the oil changed at Valvoline, it’s going to run you nearly $90 for full synthetic. I replaced the alternator, belt tensioner, A/C compressor, spark plugs, spark plus wires, rotors, brakes, water pump, and have had it in every 3,000 miles for an oil change. It's normal wear and tear for a 16 year old car if you ask me. The struts are the original struts so they are not quite as comfortable as I'd like, but they are pretty exceptional for the age and use. Although, it's a 4,000 pound car, this thing moves! The 280 horse, 300 lb ft. torque engine and 4 speed transmission, will get you where you need to be at any speed you desire. Not to brag, but I've had this thing up to 120 miles per hour with room to go. With that power and performance, comes fuel economy. Don't expect a lot if you're going that fast :) I regularly drive from central Ohio to the Cincinnati area and if I set the cruise at 65 on the nose, I see highway MPG at about 28! I constantly run 93 Octane fuel or better and use Lucas injector/fuel system cleaner at every oil change. Performance and fuel economy wise, you cannot go wrong with this vehicle. It has the power of a V-8, with the fuel economy capabilities of a V-6. The cabin of this car makes me wonder why I don’t just live out of it. The front seats are big, luxurious leather chairs that make you feel as if you were at home. The back seat of this car is immensely large! You can comfortably fit 3 of your adult friends in the back with no issues of comfort. There have been complaints of the climate control system, yet I have had no such issues. You set the thing on 72; your entire cabin space will be 72. The auto function is great, especially if you are on the highway. It will allow your blower to vary its speed based on the cool air (or hot) coming from the outside, which obviously varies as your speed increases or decreases. Everything on the interior is power, which is a nice added touch. The sunroof is one of my favorite parts of the car because of its sheer size! Opening it all the way up makes it feel like a convertible. The Delco (Bose) sound system provides a great balance of sound and encompasses you in whatever you’re listening to. The only negative aspect is that it does not have an equalizer…just two sliding tabs to adjust the bass and treble. But, considering this is a 94, I can’t be too upset. In any case, it packs a nice punch. Installing an aftermarket navigation/cd system would really bring this cars interior up to date. This car as a whole is an excellent choice for whatever you do. I will take you on long car rides quite comfortably, and get you there in style. This car, as with any, absolutely REQUIRES that you keep up with the maintenance. If you’re looking for a big car with lots of comfort and amenities, the ’94 Concours is for you!
