This is a NO Reserve Auction, dont't miss your opportunity to own a great car with lots of potential.Classic Bustle Back Cadillac Seville.  Cadillac was taking chances in the 1980s switching to front-wheel-drive adding technology like fuel injection and of course creating cars like this stunning 1985 Seville. The design didn't catch on with everyone for those few who appreciate the design it's the epitome of 1980s elegance and style. The influence of Rolls-Royce styling is undeniable and the clipped trunk recalls the designs of Hooper in the 1950s when it was called razor-edge styling. The Seville's broad front end and spacious greenhouse actually works better than most of the frumpy Rolls-Royce designs. This is an excellent survivor with great body lines and the stainless trim that stretches the length of the body and further emphasizes the trunk. And no car from the early '80s is complete without a lot of chrome including heavy bumpers. The blue cloth interior is simply spectacular in a 1980s kind of way. This is what luxury looked and felt like 30 years ago and to be honest it's pretty cool. Tufted  seats lots of stretch-out room deep pile carpets and enough sound-deadening for a radio station mean that it's as comfortable and hushed as an English gentlemen's club.  Everything was standard equipment on Cadillac's top-of-the-line machine including power windows locks and seats automatic climate control a tilt column and cruise control. And lest you think that abbreviated trunk profile hampers cargo space guess again because somehow the trunk is quite cavernous. Cadillac's 4.1-liter V8 engine is smooth and torquey if not a tire-shredding monster. It moves the front-wheel-drive Seville with ease and goes about its business unobtrusively and actually pulls down .decent fuel economy.  The front-wheel-drive system has proven itself over the decades and the traction offered by the system will impress you should the weather turn nasty.  The all-independent suspension rides well there's a disc brake at each corner  this car is still an awesome highway cruiser for road trips. Handsome Chrome Wire Wheels are a nice touch.  Not a lot of these have survived so if you're one of those guys who loved the look perhaps this is your chance to own a car with great potential.  The drivetrain is in very good condition, it has been well maintained over the years. I have owned this car for over 10 years.

GM recalling 2013 Buick LaCrosse, Cadillac SRX over transmission software

Thu, 21 Mar 2013 07:59:00 EST

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued recalls for the 2013 Buick LaCrosse and 2013 Cadillac SRX due to a problem with the software for the transmission controller. On about 27,000 SRX and LaCrosse models, the transmission could accidentally be shifted to Sport mode, which would reduce the amount of engine braking drivers experience.
NHTSA says this could increase the risk of a crash, but, fortunately, the required fix is simply an update to the software.
While we're on the subject of General Motors vehicle recalls, a small number (48) of compressed natural gas versions of the 2011 Chevrolet Express are also being recalled for a potential risk of fire or explosion. Yikes. Both official recall notices are posted below.

SRX-replacing Cadillac XT5 spied for the very first time

Thu, 30 Oct 2014 09:28:00 EST

Cadillac has got big plans in place to revitalize its lineup, with new sedans, coupes and crossovers. And it all starts with this, the replacement for the SRX.
Expected to be called XT5 in line with the brand's new naming scheme, the crossover will be based on a scalable new platform called C1XX - or Chi, for short. In its shorter form, Chi is anticipated to underpin the XT5 as well as a new Chevy crossover and the next-gen GMC Acadia. In long-wheelbase form, the platform is slated to give us a larger Cadillac crossover as well as a new Buick Enclave and Chevy Traverse.
Power in the XT5 will be provided by a choice of turbo four or atmospheric six, potentially to be transmitted through GM's new nine-speed automatic.

Consumer Reports explains its disdain for infotainment

Thu, 20 Mar 2014 19:14:00 EST

One of the perks of reviewing all manner of cars and trucks is that we're exposed to all the different infotainment systems. Whether Cadillac's CUE, Chrysler's UConnect, BMW's iDrive or MyFord Touch, we sample each and every infotainment system on the market.
Not surprisingly, some are better than others. It seems consumers have come to a similar consensus, with Consumer Reports claiming that Ford and Lincoln, Cadillac and Honda offer the worst user infotainment experiences. Not surprisingly, you won't find much argument among the Autoblog staff.
Take a look below to see just what it is about the latest batch of infotainment systems that grinds CR's gears. After that, scroll down into Comments and let us know if you agree with the mag's views.
