1997 Cadillac Catera 4dr Sedan

Review

Bought the 97 because of the drive and
how it holds the road. Love the sport
drive, accelerates and holds it. Like
the way it looks but the mechanical
reliability is iffy. Timing tensioner
broke, $3500 fix. Two years later, a 4
day old belt squeal ended as a $600
repair. Has 85000 miles on it and
getting rid of it.

Best Features

The sport drive feature, love the way it accelerates when entering the freeway

Worst Features

Bad engineering on the belt and pulley system. It destroyed the Catera name and devalued any resale value.
