Solid sturdy and timeless

This has been an exceptional car. 120,000 miles and still running smoothly. I am buying a new car car and have been test driving several different makes mainly luxury and I can honestly say my Cadillac is by far the most comfortable to sit in and smoothest to drive especially on the freeway. It has great power yet you always feel safe and in control behind the wheel.
