Do people still drive Cadillacs?

Asked by LostInParadise (23785points) March 31st, 2015

Someone casually mentioned Cadillac in a conversation and I realized that I had not thought about the car in ages. When I was young they were fairly common, but I can’t recall seeing one for quite some time. Most people who buy luxury cars seem to go for BMW or Lexus.

You betcha! People drive them around here all the time, some older than others, mostly the SUV models. I saw a guy driving a 1978 two weeks ago. It needed rear shocks, but he was driving it!

Cadillac? You mean rebadged Daewoos? Or were Daewoos rebadged to some other low tier american brand? It is all fuzzy

Yup, like a recliner going down the interstate at 80mph. Still good vehicles.

I’ve seen plenty of them around. Their signs look like the Maryland sign. The most popular ones I’ve seen are the Escalades.

Old people drive Cadillac sedans.

Younger people might drive an Escalade if they’re wealthy.

Also, car models are variable by region. When I lived in Los Angeles, BMWs were ubiquitous. I had a Subaru and had to drive 60 miles to find a dealer.

Around the Chicago North Shore suburbs, Subarus carpet the road, BMWs are not so common.

I might see one Lincoln a month in my neighborhood, but I bet they’re popular in Florida.

Lincoln/Cadillac.
Still. The Lincoln MRX is popular here.

I have seen more coupe devilles and sedan devilles here than I ever did there. Left hand drive how confusing lol.

Yes, and they have changed considerably. I was shocked when my daughter mentioned that the Cadillac CTS would be her car of choice.

I haven’t seen many Caddies in years. In fact, I think the only Caddie I’ve seen since I came to Seattle was a 1919 Cadillac Limo at the annual Greenwood car show; a bit ratty, but all original.

Those who want luxury cars around Seattle pretty much avoid American cars. I say “pretty much” because there are quite a few Tesla Model S (which many have compared to a BMW 7-series) on the road here, and Tesla is both headquartered and built in California.

There are several modern Cadillacs in my area along with plenty of German sedans..i drive a fully loaded Lincoln MKZ AWD sedan and I love it.
