STAY AWAY from a used Catera
By Birn on
1997 Cadillac Catera 4dr Sedan
I have a '97 Catera that I bought new. I like a lot except when it is in the shop, which has been quite often in the past year. Many things have gone wrong that shouldn't have gone wrong at all, or at least not so soon. My first car was a GM ('86 Pontiac Sunbird), and I swore I would never buy another GM car. Now I remember why, and this time I really, really won't buy another GM. Cadillac had a good marketing strategy-- build a car for younger buyers and get them hooked on the Cadillac brand--but the strategy has backfired (at least as far as I'm concerned) because of the poor quality of the car.
Favorite Features
Leather seats, 12-CD changer, rearview mirror that automatically changes from day to night, variable-speed intermittent wipers, separate thermal controls for driver and passenger, heated seats
Suggested Improvements
N/A since the model has been discontinued. But in general, Cadillac needs to focus on quality and reliability.
