Spent more time in the dealership
garage than mine. Constant problems - 2
engine oil coolers(within 3 weeks of
each other)tail lights & headlight
brakes, brake light switch, key stuck
in ignition, NUMEROUS electrical
problems. Fun to drive but most of time
spent on road was behind a tow truck!
Can't give away the worst car I ever
owned. NO RESALE VALUE.Just traded UP
to an ALTIMA. No CTS for me.
It had all the creature comforts that
made sitting in it a joy.
Unfortunately, thats about all you
could do with the car.
Both dealership and Cadillac reps are
unaware of the definiton of customer
service and service recovery. Will
NEVER consider purchasing another
Cadillac as a result this poor product
and after purchase treatment by the
dealer and the company.
i've had my Catera for about 8 months
and love it. I have back problems and
I find the car VERY comfortable.
People are always asking what kind of
car it is, everyone loves it. It's got
style, class and all in a car that is
not too big but extremely comfortable
for even five adults.
Had planned on replacing my Catera with
the new CTS until I saw the CTS, then
decided to keep the Catera. We like
the exterior lines of the Catera much
better than the CTS and we are
completely satisfied with everyting
about it, so concluded we had no reason
Gas mileage, exterior lines.
Would like to have had a single CD
players in addtion to my 12 disk trunk
It has had nearly all of the interior
plastic knobs and parts replaced.
Brake job at 23k mi. Door lock on
driver side easily gets out of sync and
freezes. Leaks oil currently. I have
had it at the dealership just about
every 3000mi for an oil change and
something else that has gone wrong.
But it was usu. under the extendend
warr. With all of this I still love
Sporty looks even standing still and a
very fun car to drive. The rear wheel
drive and the 200hp work well.
12 cd changer in trunk is great for
The dash area around the controls and
radio gets very hot and I think
contributes to the plastic knob problem.
I have shopped for a used car for
several weeks- and it's not fun. There
wasn't much out there that fit my
requirements- Under 9K, low mileage,
fun to drive but space for kids...
I drove a beat up Catera first, and it
drove like a dream! Corners excellent,
and the sport transmission is fun and
I started looking for a Catera in nice
shape, and ended up with one in PERFECT
condition. Seats look like new, every
option, etc. The back seat has air
vents and heated seats for the kids,
the back seats fold down into the roomy
trunk. I am having an absolute blast
blowing away people on the interstate-
hope I don't get a ticket soon.
Leather, bose stereo, sport
transmission, smooth steering.
