think its a wonderful car,yes like any other mode of transportation it will require maintenance. I would say if one doesn't want to do repairs,buy new and trade early. These cars represent a time when this country made great products, the ride the comfort ,the extra horsepower when you need it all within your reach. Personally, I own two Devilles, and wouldn't trade them . I actually enjoy...
