Once a respected luxury GM carline which was all about excess. The glory days were before the late 1970s when quality declined. Old models had chrome, metal, and style. The entire line went to the crapper when EPA clean air regualtion destroyed the era of big V8 engines and leaded gasoline.
The line was pathetic in the mid 80s which cars like the Cimmaron which was a chevrolet cavalier with a few styling changes and caddi badges. The line's pathetic attempts to copy the Japanese were always 10 years behind.
For example, the dash controls of the line got to be good looking in the late 1990's after they started to copy what Lexus had done in 1990 with their LS400.
Cadillac has now gone to a new art and science theme to try to get yuppies to buy their cars since the baby boomers are going to experience a mass die off in the next 20 years or so.
If Cadillac did not try so hard to copy the Europeans and Japanese by building cars like they did in the good old days they would be on top again because Americans like American looking cars.
Buy a cadillac if you want to have a car that will depreciate 70% in the first 4 years.
