Run, don't walk away from this one
By Vinman on
1997 Cadillac Catera 4dr Sedan
This was by far the worst vehicle I
have ever owned. I constantly had the
car in the shop for nuisance repairs to
the brakes, electrical system, and
finally a completely dead engine.
Anyone considering buying one of these
cars MUST have an extended warranty
because you WILL use it. Unfortunately
the first engine gasket blowout that I
had leaked oil onto the spark plugs and
wires. Those parts are not covered
under warranty because they are
maintenance items, yet cost $800.00 to
replace. Whatever happened to $5 plugs
and $50 wires? In addition, I thought
that Cadillac (Opel) engines should at
least last more than 60,000 miles
before deemed DOA.
All of the bells & whistles - these
cars really come loaded.
Make a product that lives up to the
Cadillac nameplate. This vehicle was
truly poorly executed.
