I don't disagree what FWD was PART of the problem but really take any of the older Cadis and stick RWD on it w/o any other mods. Would you still want it?Actually, FWD was a problem.
See, people who had gotten out of the habit of buying GM would get a little older and think that they might want to trade in their 3er or Mercedes C-class for something a bit larger and more comfortable. They remembered that their parents/grandparents/whoever had had a Cadillac back in the old days, heard that Caddy quality was up, and the latest product didn't look bad. They would go to the Caddy dealer and check out a car for a test drive. Say, an ETC or STS (fwd from a few years back).
Usually the test drive would end abruptly when the potential customer hammered the throttle and torque steer sent the thing heading for the ditch - very disconcerting to someone used to a RWD car. Back to the dealership they would go, and off they would go to buy another BMW, another Merc, or a Lexus LS.
