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.

Favorite Features

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

Suggested Improvements

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